    I have a Ka-Bar TDI that I like, but I want the smaller one because the large handle is a bit too big for me. I just picked up a SOG Aegis today and am in love with it. Next on the list is the famed Benchmade Griptilian, and maybe a SOG Mini Trident.

    All Bowie's. The Bagwell style of blade in particular. I prefer a coffin handle. Other's are okay but the coffin handle make backcuts easier.

    A ~3" to 3.5" blade, drop point, folder, flat/light enough to easily and unobtrusively carry everywhere, yet stout enough to help me when the chips are down. It's nobody's hunting blade, but it'll do as a basic survival tool for the daily grind.

    I love my K-bar but the feeling of the Cold Steel Spartan is really nice also.

    I carry a stainless Spyderco Mariner every shift at work. When I wear a dress uniform or polo I have a Böker pen-knife in the pen pocket. I wear a Cold Steel push dagger in my work boot (for "rescue"). I keep a Gerber folding filet knife in my bunker pants and sometimes a Glock knife on my airpack.

    Off duty I may carry any one of a dozen or so knives depending on my mood. Right now mostly a Rajah III from Cold Steel, occasionally I've been carrying a butterfly knife just because. When I go to the kids' school I carry a Swiss Army knife. Florida has an odd "ordinary pocketknife" law.

    My favorite fixed blades are a Cold Steel Bushman bowie amd an old USAF survival knife. Lately I've come to appreciate a $2 folding knife that uses replaceable utility blades for cleanimg game.

    I love my Italian stiletto,it's a fully automatic switchblade. It has a nice mother of pearl handle. It's nice and light, it opens solid and is sharp as a razor. If you can legally own one I would recommend getting one for a back up weapon.

    You have to be careful of the pivot pin. In some of these it is only a mild steel pin as small as a brad nail. Under impact or pressure it can bend and fail. The thicker the pivot and the more solid the lock the better when it comes to automatics.
