    Red bone Case Baby Butterbean mostly. It's a holdover from the years I spent at a desk in a bank.



    Field choice is a yellow-handle Case Mini-Trapper, seen here off to the side on the reloading bench.

    When I am camping or hiking I have a reasonable sized fixed blade on me. Most likely an ESEE 3 or my Izula 2. I always have a folder in my pocket or a multitool. The folder changes often but its likely to be either a Benchmade, Spyderco Para D2 or SOG trident. Right now I have my cheap Kershaw in my pocket.

    As an aside, last week I had to tighten the screws on the clip of my Spyderco Southard that I've been wearing for about 3-4 years now. I'm lucky I didn't lose one or both of them they were so loose. I'm thinking the act of opening/flicking the knife loosened them up, as they are always under tension otherwise.
    Something to keep an eye on.

    A re-settable threadlock material will solve that little issue. Give this product a try:

    Hey, that looks like some handy stuff. In my cart.
    I just used blue because it's what I had. I didn't see anything on the screws from Spyderco, so blue is better than nothing.

    Vibra-TITE is a very useful threadlock product for any application where you want to retain adjustability of the screw or where vibration is a problem. Its application is a little different, clean threads, apply threadlock and let dry for 15 minutes before assembly.

    Ruger 10-22 alloy receivers are notorious for loosening mount screws even with conventional threadlock products. VC-3 eliminates that problem nicely as it provides a bit of cushion. Williams aperture sights are known for their tiny fiddly adjustment screws that often loosen and are lost in the field or damaged from over-tightening. Again, Vibra-TITE to the rescue. The steel screws in the aluminum sight body are retained and cushioned by the re-settable product. VC-3 is also the stuff to use when securing the retention adjustment fastener on many holsters.

    VC-3 is right up there with bailin' wire and 200 mph tape ;)

    Blue is what I use, it gets the job done but you can still remove the screws as needed if you remove your clip for some reason without having to use heat like you would with the red. I recommend using blue on your pivot screw as well. Some of those have a tendency to work themselves loose.

    My current favorite is a Kershaw Cryo. I love Kershaw for the value. I sometimes carry a Leek or a Blackout. I would feel better about losing or breaking them versus a more expensive option. They are also well made so it's a win win.
