    I have carried my SOG Flash II for a couple years now as an EDC knife and in my experience, the safety has never been stuck half open. In fact, it has a very positive detent. No problems with mine. YMMV.

    I've also heard of super gluing the safety in the open position.

    I recommended the Leeks because they are extremely slim and work very well for dress pants carry, but if you want a tougher knife for self-defense purposes, my standard recommendation is the waved Spyderco Delica. Small enough that it doesn't scream "Folding machete of DOOM!," inexpensive enough to be affordable, high quality steel, and faster to open than even an AO or auto knife... with the option to open it slowly and not scare sheeple.

    If it's more of an office tool, the Leek can't be beat. Crazy cutters, too, because of how slim the blade is. And they come in dressy versions- the rainbow version is a little much, as far as I'm concerned, but there is a pretty damascus version, and a rare one in gloss black with gold accents.

    I have a feeling I'm going to own multiple knives before it's all done. I wasn't planning on the leek, but after all the great attention it's gotten here, this might be one I get. And I'm sure I'll get a Delica too, juts because it seems like a glock, 1911, or wheel gun of the knife world and everybody has at least one!

    This of course is also leading me to get a larger nicer knife for weekends and such, replacing my boring Rimington knife I carry now.

    What I carry

    I've been carrying Columbia River's M21 for over a year. Fortunately I've never had to use on someone, but it's big and strong and even if the blade might be a bit over size limits for NY, so be it.

    It's not the cheapest blade out there, but I feel its a lot for the money.

    Amazon has it, here's the link and a screen shot.

    I have a Kershaw Leek 1660CKT - I really like it, but I would like to get something a little bigger to have in appropriate situations. The grip is very small and thin on the Leek.

    The Kershaw Shallot is the same basic design with a 3.5" blade and slightly longer handle, and the Tyrade has a 3-5/8" blade with a wider G10 handle. Both of them have the index finger assisted opening that I like and have grown accustomed to. Both of these would also be over the 3" limit for auto knives or folders where applicable.

    I don't mean to hijack the thread, but would the Kershaw "Speedsafe Assisted Opener" legally be considered an automatic? Does anyone here know anyone personally who has had trouble with an LEO over blade length, if they were not doing something else to get themselves in trouble?
