    Blade of Choice

    I've carried the same knife for 12 years now. I know, that's a long time. Here's a review of my favorite folder and why it's been my daily carry knife for over a decade.

    Very nice knife.... I have multiple blades that i carry, b ut my primaries are a K-bar warthog with tanto point, and a benchmade griptillian with sheeps foot blade. Both are razor sharp and I have had them for several years. I also have a camillus heat auto folder, but it is illegal in indiana so i dont carry it.

    A couple years ago I managed to get in on the initial run of Emerson's Ubr Commander, that I use as my "field" backup. Just wish I could afford more of Mr. Emerson's work.

    I'm an Electrician, I've carried a Graham Razel for 3 years now. Wouldn't trade it for any other knife out there.

    Very nice looking knife. I carry a Benchmade Auto-Presidio, myself, which appears to be a fairly similar knife in design to yours.

    My on the job EDC is a Strider PT. I got tired of carrying knives that couldn't stand up to construction work, so I bit the bullet and shelled out the cash for a LOT better knife and I couldn't be happier. My little PT is not very large but it's built like a tank and can take the rigorous use.

    Off the job...I carry either a ZT561, ZT551, DPX HEST 2.0 or a Chris Reeve Umnumzaan for pocket folders. I also carry a slip joint most of time ranging from Buck to Case to GEC.

    AS I never intend to use my knife as a weapon but rather as a basic tool, I carry a Mini-Grip daily along with a SAK Classic. When I'm out hiking or doing SAR, I have a Fallkniven F1 in my pack.

    I can carry an auto knife here and would LOVE to make sense out of one of Benchmade's excellent OTF knives but not for $400+. Plus, for the work I need a knife for, the autos don't cut it. So to speak...

    I like my Graham mini-Razel for general work. For CCW duty, either the 4 or 6 inch Cold Steel Ti-Lite is a great carry:

    It's a neat concept, but it appears overly complicated. OP does the knife open every time, or do you found yourself fumbling with the opening procedure at times?
