Why do you idiots think you need big fancy knives?

cause some of us use them for more than cleaning under our fingernails
...it's not about "fancy" , it's about quality and ease of use
You have a quality knife, (if Bradford Pa made and not their China line)
but Ole School folders like that can't be opened one handed .
The lack of a strong blade locking mechanism is a downer too

and you guys with Swiss Army type knives???
when's the last time you needed a cork screw and those rinky-dink scissors in the field ......

I've owned/carried everything from $5 cheap Chinese to top line $200+ knives
I use my knife for everything from whittling a wooden chain to prying nails and opening cans of Who Hash

The "cheap" knives can have good steel blades that take and hold an edge reasonably well ...it's in the construction of the bolsters, liners and locks that separates the good/better/best

The cheap knives just haven't held up to my abuse .
The tips breaks and/or the bolsters get loose and fail pretty quick

Two best knives I've owned ...
a German made Puma folder I paid $40 bukz for in 1978
this particular model..

and the two Benchmades I have now


The "mid range" priced knives ($30-$60 or so) haven't held up much better than the cheap ones for me
(with the exception of the heavy duty USA made Buck)
but they're so big and heavy, they're a drag....on my pocket and need to carried in a belt holder ...and I have enough chit on my belt now

My scissors come in handy more than the knife actually... The little knife on it is sharp too.

I'm not needing to go and skin a deer with it so for trimming a little carpet or just even needing a quick screw driver without carrying a entire Leatherman I find this scissors Leatherman useful for in the field

I often wonder how you kept that beard so short...

And I’m running and everyone pays the same sale until Christmas. Can’t post what that is but if you know what my VET/LEO/EMT pricing is then you can figure that out. Let’s upgrade you guys!
