    Have you found your knife yet? Here's another one... Kershaw Junkyard Dog. The stainless model is less expensive than the G-10 version. It is thin, ergonomic and fast, flipper opening.

    Has anyone taken their knives to people-like mediums (cheap ribs and steaks)? It's a learning experience, for sure, actually having something to cut and stab into, and you'll really learn about the integrity of the locking mechanism.

    I have the Spyderco Endura wave and i love it. I dont leave home without it. I also had a Kershaw Assisted open but the blade started rusting. Kershaw was amazing about the customer service but shortly after i lost it. I needed a replacment so i invested in a endura wave. Never looked back

    Stay away from liner-locks unless it's a CRKT with the auto-LAWKS feature.
    i just won the bidding on a spyderco endura w/wave.
    it came in the mail today. i didn't know there was such a knife until kenpotex mentioned it. i really like this knife a lot, its a great idea(the wave). they wont break the bank and they are very sturdy.

    Good choice, I'm sure it'll serve you well.

    There are so many decent choices out there it is hard to say just one. However, personally, I like folders with a thumb knob on them for speed of opening. I do like spring assisted ones as well. The knife should hold a good edge as well as open up easily with one flick of the wrist. Your carry knife should only be used for self-defense purposes. It is a tool. If you want to use a knife for daily tasks, then get a knife JUST for that.

    I don't care for the wave (I'm in the minority). But I like the Spyderco without it. Quick, light and strong. I prefer an Endura with the Spyder (fully serrated) edge.

    From CRKT, one feature I really appreciate is the Carson Flipper, a piece of metal off the blade that protrudes through the handle. Flip it with the index finger, with minor practice it's about as quick as an auto.

    I have a custom sheath for my TDI heading my way. It looks like it will conceal very well.
