    I've carried the Recon Folder with a serrated blade regularly for over a year now. I absolutely love it, everything I look for in a non-auto folder and I forget I'm carrying it because it's so lightweight.

    Nothing terribly wrong with Cold Steel, just not sure they're as good as their marketing. I have shoe boxes full of most ALL reputable brands of locking folders from Al Mar to Zero Tolerance. If you're looking for a utility tool most any will do. If you're looking for a SD weapon, I've gotta' recommend a fixed blade. The fixed KaBar TDI series, Spyderco Moran, even some CRKT models are soooo much faster into the fight. Remember, fine motor skills get stupid clumsy with an adrenaline-dump. Scrambling for little thumb studs, hooks, holes or buttons when things instantly turn tangled & dark can feel like you're wearing oven mitts! You are NOT Michael Janich no matter how fast you look in the mirror. A fixed blade completely removes the most complex maneuver in the sequence. If you're serious, then get...serious!

    Yeah reminds me of that Will Smith movie Legend - when he cut himself down from a trap and fell on his folder - into his leg!

    I am not a Cold Steel fan. They make decent knives, but better can be had from Spyderco for similar money. I carry an Emerson Kerambit weak side for weapon retention purposes on duty, but for utility use on my strong side it an old school Spyderco Manix, the original large one. I ordered the new large one today actually for $103. Excellent knife for the money, and the original can go into retirement. Fixed blades are without a doubt the fastest, but I have trouble getting them on the belt with all the other crap I have to carry.

    Ruger Mini-14 and Remington 870 by the bed both wearing Surefire lights.
    Always carry a knife-they are handy to have
    Always carry a reload-You probably won't need it but it is good insurance .
    Always carry a light- To see in the dark
