I carried a Kershaw Scallion for the last two years until I gave it away recently - it was a great knife. My new EDC is a Benchmade Minigriptilian - or should I say will be, as soon as I open it on Christmas morning. I also carry a Hen and Rooster butter bean - very nice little "gentleman's knife"
I'm 6' 260
For years I carried a SOG Flash with straight edge.
Last month I switched to this:
A Smith & Wesson "24/7". Super smooth open and 1 hand open and close. Partial serration. Skate tape slab inserts for superior grip. I like it
Gun owners' prayer:
"Dear Lord; if I die please don't let my wife sell my gun collection...........for what I told her it was worth"
I carry a Chris Reeve Sebenza liner lock in S30V an Tom Krein Pocket Bowie in D2(small fixed blade) a Case Sodbuster in Carbon steel and a large case stockman in Carbon steel
For a good everyday type of tool, I rely on the Spyderco Native FRN (C41BK).
Last week, I took them to a shop to get them professionally resharpened and honed. For those in the Portland area, Woody Bailey is a magician, with knifes. He can get them exceptionally sharp. I've got a Delica and a couple of Natives. Had them all done.
Federal regulations restrict the sale of automatic knives to anyone other than Military, Federal Law Enforcement, Law Enforcement, Fire, Rescue and EMT personnel with proof of photo identification or an email from Military/Government address.
Spyderco Endura 4, with the tacticool black blade of course. I love it so far, but I ruined the factory sharpening by cutting through a Sam splint. Didnt know they had a sheet metal core . Needless to say, the Endura still did its job like butta. The Endura 4 was suggested many times by members of this forum. You can get a good deal on one from Spydieguy on Ebay.
Its a big move up from my Gerber AR 3.0, which is still going strong and smooth.
It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

I don't know how body size matters, unless you're awkwardly large or extremely small...

Spyderco endura wave. I used to carry an Emerson CQC -7 but I like the lighter feel of the Endura and it is a little longer.

Hoping to change some things up come christmas time as well. To those that carry TOPS knives, are they as b@s@$$ as they look? and how comfortable are they to carry? Short answers are ok. Thanks!

SOG flash II, it lives with my wallet! Extra strong and kept unreasonably sharp by many years of being a chef!
Big big fan of SOG knives, very reliable for a multitude of uses
By ANY means necessary....

I carry my Kershaw Blur plain edge and my Smith and Wesson combo edge knives daily, using the S&W for all my cutting tasks and keeping the Kershaw as a defensive knive. I usually carry a Kershaw Scallion too, and always have it on me at school as it is the only knife I have that is legal to carry there (blade less than 2"). I plan to pick up an Endura or Delica with wave at some point in the near future as well, it might push the Blur to truck duty.
