    🙂 Kershaw scallion – gift from my Oregonian brother, a factory second, first assisted knife, never managed to cut myself thru hours of play
    Protect runt-just a nice little auto. Snappy
    Crkt heiho- like the blade style
    Benchmade emissary-just a nice little knife

    At work, I always carry a Leatherman squirt- tiny, disappears in pocket. Blade. Scissors. Screw drivers. Pliers. Just enough tool(s) that can magically appear from nowhere and save the day.

    After years of carrying and searching for the perfect size and type of EDC, I ended up with a Chris Reeve Small Sebenza with micarta inlays. For the past 4 years I’ve been very happy with it. I must admit that I’ve wanted to try a Rick Hinderer 3″ bladed, slicer grind, non-flipper. Having found that I much prefer a high quality knife, 3″ blade, in pocket clip form, my choices are limited.

    I’ve been carrying an SOG Twitch XL every day for some time, and I recently Got a Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21. Love that knife. that’s become my daily carry.. Almost lost it at the airport a couple weeks ago, as I forgot it was in my pocket & got all the way to security before realizing it was with me.. Luckily they had a shipping envelope for knives and lighters! Whew! $410 knife or $500 plane ticket?

    Just to be different, here are some everyday carry knives that would be useful in completely different situations, like Afghanistan! ROTFLMAO! Sorry, old Leo is in a weird mood this morning.


    Nonetheless, pretty nice knives eh!

    Cheers

    :cheer: Ok, first we have “Leo Mitch”.
    Then we have “Old Leo”.
    Now we have “Silly Leo”.

    If we put them all together, we get “Silly, Old, Leo Mitch”.
    Or for an acronym “SOLM”.
    Or a homonym “Psalm”. :woohoo: 😛 🙂

    Why chew on your tongue mate? Say your piece Eamon, especially if it as as thought provoking as all your fine posts. 😉

    Well… just ten days after saying that I had been EDCing a small Sebbie for four years, and was considering a Hinderer. Yesterday I began carrying a 3.5″ Hinderer flipper with slicer grind. I already like it and it will probably remain in my pocket for a considerable time. No need to sharpen it yet since I easily shaved off much arm hair trying it out. I was surprised that it didn’t feel much bigger or heavier in my pocket, even though it appears to be.

    Leo,
    You give me far to much credit for my ramblings! However thank you! The chewing of my tongue is in my strong support of peoples’s right to protect themselves and how California undermines that? Now I probably have said to much already and I will let it go at that. After all this is a knife sharpening forum.
    Thank you for indulging me, Eamon

    Pas de probleme mon ami! I too have a problem with laws that say I can’t defend myself. We can defend ourselves up here to a certain extent, but may not carry for that purpose (either knife or gun…or golf club etc. ) But then they also qualify it by saying…you may, but only using necessary force. Poor me! I can’t muster the necessary force anymore without resorting to a weapon.
    But here we are away from knife sharpening and not in the Off Topic section! Bad Mod!

    Since I am moving to England in a month or so I had to retire my Rockstead Chou as my EDC & this is my new EDC.
    Knife is made by Takeda in a Higo style out of AS steel 61-63 Rockwell .
    Overall length 176mm length closed 110mm blade length 67.6mm height 19.2mm Spine above heel 2.55mm at tip0.6mm.
    It is a Scandi grind although I may put a micro convex bevel on it when I sharpen it .
