Well, it looks like I've gotten addicted to Kershaws. There's a use for every single one of those knifes too!

I'll start from the top left and go right.

The Leek is my gentlemens knife. For classy situations (church/wedding/etc.).
The Shuffle 2 is my guys night out knife. Minimal, lightweight, and mutli-purpose. You always need a bottle opener.
The Blur (serrated w/ glass breaker) is my outdoors knife. If I'm going in the woods or hunting, I'll carry it.
The Brawler is my dedicated track knife. This is a beast of a knife and it's what I use at the racetrack every weekend to cut decals, tape, or zipties.
The Ember is the pool / bag knife. The size of it makes it easy to carry when you have no pockets.
Finally, my Fatback. I've been drooling over this beaut since I saw it on a SHOT show video. This is my EDC knife. If I'm not sure what I'll be doing, this is my go to.

Granted, there are days where I carry 2 or 3 of them at a time. Today, I just happen to be carrying my Blur. Haven't truly carried it yet, so I thought why not. I'm not saying there aren't other great knives out there (because I'm sure there are), but my addiction to Kershaw came from my late Father-In-Law who always carried a Leek day in and day out. I doubt he ever went anywhere without it. If I can blame anyone for this addiction, it would be him. If you have any questions about any one of these knives, I'd be more than happy to answer them.

You are going to love the new Showtime - I was able to handle one at Blade.

Just changed out my Kershaw Leek for acAOG Twitch II. I didn't like how thin the tip was on the Leek. Way to easy to snap off. The SOG is way sharper too.

Here's some new steel. ZT0450SIG. It's one of the Legion series that you don't need to own a Legion to buy.



It does go nicely with my Legion though.

I like the idea of having lethal and non-lethal weapons for defense. I am 70 years old, so I will not get into a fist fight with a young mugger, but I don't want to shoot him as my first response. I carry pepper spray and a knife as well as my gun. I looked at a lot of knives before I found one that would keep my hand from slipping down onto the blade, cutting mu fingers to the bone. If you stab someone, their blood will make your knife slippery. Make sure your knife is designed so your hand doesn't slide all the way down onto the blade.

Anyone remember the Beretta folder years ago? The handle was made from 92 grips or looked like them anyways.
