Very nice knife.... I have multiple blades that i carry, b ut my primaries are a K-bar warthog with tanto point, and a benchmade griptillian with sheeps foot blade. Both are razor sharp and I have had them for several years. I also have a camillus heat auto folder, but it is illegal in indiana so i dont carry it.
My on the job EDC is a Strider PT. I got tired of carrying knives that couldn't stand up to construction work, so I bit the bullet and shelled out the cash for a LOT better knife and I couldn't be happier. My little PT is not very large but it's built like a tank and can take the rigorous use.
Off the job...I carry either a ZT561, ZT551, DPX HEST 2.0 or a Chris Reeve Umnumzaan for pocket folders. I also carry a slip joint most of time ranging from Buck to Case to GEC.
AS I never intend to use my knife as a weapon but rather as a basic tool, I carry a Mini-Grip daily along with a SAK Classic. When I'm out hiking or doing SAR, I have a Fallkniven F1 in my pack.
I can carry an auto knife here and would LOVE to make sense out of one of Benchmade's excellent OTF knives but not for $400+. Plus, for the work I need a knife for, the autos don't cut it. So to speak...
Fantastic engineering on the knife the OP posted. Would very much like to get one or one of the knock off's. The knife of the left of this pic is more my style. The knife I have like it is damascus steel so it holds a very sharp edge for a long time. The spring assist helps to open it and the lever at the top used by the index finger opens it like a real Stelleto but it isn't one so it's legal in more states although we are lucky enough to have zero knife laws in AZ. I had a bit of a windfall and added quite a few different but, mostly damascus steel, knives so I can change 'em up when wanted or needed depending on what state I might be going to.
I own a Emerson CQB 11. The fact is though the Emerson's are over 200 bux ..here is another option from a good knife company that uses that wave feature on one of the most popular line of knives to carry EDC on the planet the Spyderco Endura model with the "wave" feature.
Currently carrying a Gerber 06 Automatic Serrated Tanto. Issued prior to last deployment. I find it kind of bulky though. Probably go back to carrying a Gerber Armor or S&W folder when I have to turn the Gerber 06 back to supply.
