Help! I Need A New Knife - Info. Request
This is a discussion on Help! I Need A New Knife - Info. Request within the Defensive Knives & Other Weapons forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I'm thinking seriously about buying this particular knife. (See Pic & Specs. Below)
Mostly because it sports a 5" blade.
So far.... $59.00 Smacks plus ...

QK, I've got that particular knife and really like it. Workmanship is decent and it holds an edge well. Have used it for three deer seasons counting this one and it does well. Blade is heavier than I originally imagined it would be, but a beefier blade is rarely a bad thing.
Got mine from cutleryshoppe.com. Think I paid more than you found, though.

Thanks for your input Steve. I value your opinion (based on your past posts in general) & if you carry the same one and you're happy with it....then that's good enough for me.
For me....the price is about right & the quality looks/sounds really decent.
I think I'm just going to go with it. The weight is about right also & I like that AUS8 Stainless.
I actually have a semi~antique 5" blade locking folder that is still in good shape but, it's old & it's extremely HEAVY.
It has Ebony wood handles & a ton of brass & I'd honestly have more use for another Colt .45 auto spare magazine...rather than lug that old knife around anymore.
It feels like a "ship anchor" in my pocket.
So...unless anybody has any other suggestions within the next couple of days....then I'm buying this one.

QKShooter - have you ever considered a 5" blade?

I owned that same SOG a few years back.I found the blade itself to be decent but the plastic handle seemed pretty flimsy for my liking.Got rid of it.I now only carry Benchmades and find them to be one of the best,IMO.However they can get pricey.For the price range of that SOG you could probably get a nice CRKT which I believe to be a better product.My $.02.

Columbia River would be a great choice if they made a knife with a 5" blade but, I don't think they have any model close to that blade length.
