    my carry knives

    still playing with my new camera...

    I don't carry all of these at the same time but I do carry all of them...just depends on what I'm wearing, what I'm doing, etc.

    If you carry in Condition 3, you have two empty chambers. One in the weapon...the other between your ears.

    Hey...Morgan from TPI did the first one for me, after I saw how it worked everything just went downhill.

    That's a pretty cool idea to modify the spyderco thumbhole. How's it work? I would imagine not much of the front of the hole would be used since you press up and more towards the rear with your thumb. Pretty cool.........I just picked up a few of the Beretta knives and like them alot....

    Really nice execution on the wave grind Matt. I didn't expect the blade spine to be ground down as well - I always assumed it just involved opening the hole. Really does give the blade a nice profile. How badly does that eat up the pocket seam though? I've got worn spots on all my Levi's just from the clips on my Benchmades, can't imagine what a wave would do.

    Always wanted a good push dagger for weak side carry as well, unfortunately the TN Legislature doesn't trust us citizens with double edged knives (or autos, or "gravity" knives, etc) ... loaded handguns are fine but an "evil knife" might hurt someone.

    When I first started using the waved folders my jeans suffered a little from the numerous draws. Now that I've got it figured out, it's not too bad.

    ... loaded handguns are fine but an "evil knife" might hurt someone. Don'tcha just love politicians...

    I just bought a CS Black Sable.
    I'm still trying to find a way to carry the thing.
    It's huge.

    Because of the chamfering on the thumbhole, and providing you polish down all hard edges where you cut, I think it's the least "wardrobe intensive" wave. Subjectively, more positive than the early Emersons (why I never went "wave", until I saw this cool mod on TPI!).
