    Now do you prefer serrated or straight? :)

    I used my lock blade folder to carve our turkey and it worked well.

    In fact I use my lock blade folder for any task I would use most any other knife for.

    Using a carry knife makes you much more effective with it if you ever need it for defense. The carry knife is already a part of your everyday cycle of life.

    It's remarkable how few people beyond our 2A circle imagine knives can be elsewhere than the kitchen drawer.

    I was playing tennis recently and someone had an extraneous piece of plastic loose on her racket. I trimmed it with my EDC and she was absolutely amazed that anyone would have a knife in the pocket.

    Once upon a time, the person using the big serrated knife broke it right in the middle of the turkey. Lacking an appropriatley sized knife, I used my Kukri from Cold Steel.

    It worked great, in fact, I have used it a few times when preparing wild turkeys
    at camp. Best turkey knife you can imagine.

    I carry a Benchmade auto Stryker. I use it for everything. It has wear everywhere. BUT should I ever really need it I won't be fumbling around either. I also have a brand new one in the safe ready to go. It makes scuffing this one easier to take.

    Gunzilla works great on knives too!

    Just shows you what an assailant with a knife can do when they are within 21 feet.

    That's a good one. It could've been a little messy if all you had was your shotgun!

    I carry multiple knives and look for daily chores to use them for lol, my own little ongoing test i guess, each knife kinda serves multiple purposes too.
