    +2, I picked up one of these a few days ago and it quickly pushed my Kershaw Blur to backup duty because of the weight and how quickly I can access it if needed

    I added a new one to the line up, it is a black SOG acess card. Very light, VG10 arc lock but has qualities of an axis style lock. Fits nicely anywhere, they say you can carry it in your wallet.

    I carry it on my over shirts (i wear flannel all the time in the winter) or you could sport it under your tie if you work in an office or are a LEO in winter uniform requiring a tie. I clip mine horizontally between two buttons. Centerline, convenient, hidden, quick. Check them out. standby for pics.

    I recently purchased a Benchmade Griptilian (550HG) and Mini-Griptilian (555HG) for their great IE blade geometry and they're both excellent knives. I didn't end up liking the feel of the Spyderco Endura handle but still wanted a good sized folding EDC and/or defensive knife as a backup with a trainer. I love the way the Griptilian feels in my hand open and closed, and it opens like a dream with the mooched Spydiehole.
    That said, I will freely admit that I prefer the feel of the Delica to the Mini-Griptilian so keep an open mind before blindly sticking to a single company because another option might end up being better for you.

    Thumbs up This is my carry knife... a bit beefy but sturdy

    Used to carry an Emerson Commander but I like this ZT 0301 much more. Razor sharp... good steel and strong enough to be used as a tool if need be. Always liked Strider designs and Kershaw seems to be of consistantly high quality... really really love this knife

    Mine is either (and primarily) a Benchmade Griptilian 551 or Ontario/Rat Model 1. Love both!! Thinking about picking up a second Model 1 they go for pretty cheap nowadays.

    Benchmade griptillian, mini griptillian, 710 and Emerson mini-commander. I carry all of them but I find that I always go back to my 710. It has more character.

    I curently carry a Kershaw Blackout that seems to be a very nice knife. It holds a good edge and flips out with very little effort. I used to carry a Buck Vangard Stag handle hunting knife. Both very good but i kinda got tired of carring a stag handle and decided to try the kershaw folding.
    When it comes down to life or death, I choose life. Help promote defensive carry and gun ownership...
