    Another Kabar TDI here. I have the smaller one. It rides on my weak side.

    My two main EDC knives are not carried "for defense," but as tools, which could incidentally be used for defense. When I carry a Spyderco Civilian or Shivworks Clinch Pick, or other pikal-style fixed blade, they are for defense.

    Cold Steel push-dagger (Safekeeper III) and a Spyderco P'kal.

    Cold Steel Voyager X2. For the same reason I don't carry a mouse gun.

    Just picked up a Benchmade Mini Skirmish. Titanium handles make it extremely light. It uses a frame "mono lock" that also cuts down on weight (no liner) Balance is perfect. Razor sharp combo blade with S30V steel. It is very sturdy and strong.This will be used for bad guys only. Best knife Ive owned.

    Everyday 'tool' is a Benchmade HK axis tanto with combo blade.

    I will not carry a knife with a liner lock. Mine have axis locks.

    My knife is a Spyderco #C41BK Native FRN, plain edge. I like it so much that I have two of them. It's reasonably durable, very sharp, the CPM S30-V steel is capable. I use it almost daily, so it doesn't hold an edge quite as long as I would like. But that's about the only issue I have with it.

    With a 3" blade, it's not exactly a serious defensive knife. At least with my knife skills, it doesn't compare with a a decent 6" fixed. But I find it to be an exceptional knife for daily use.

    Finally got the Emerson CQC-10 in the mail after waiting several months for it to be in stock. So far, I absolutely love it. The wave opening is extremely slick and the build quality is absolutely rock solid. It is going to replace my Benchmade Kulgera as my EDC. I'll probably still carry the Kulgera since it is so slim and light.
