I carry either a SOG Flash II or a cheapy Benchmade. Our office sells them to support the various charities that we have and as a bonus our logo is etched on them. Since they are at a reduced price I buy a couple and toss one in the bag, and put the other in my pocket. I really want a KBar TDI for my duty belt. /wp-content/forum-smileys/smiley_evilGrin.gif

Spyderco Delica Wave is My Mon-Sat EDC.SOG Fielder as my church/Sunday knife. The spyderco seems to work well with my goofy neurological system (left handed for somthings and right handed for others)

I carry an all black Kershaw Leek. I've had it for about a year and a half now and don't have many complaints. [Amazon]I did break the tip (which I knew was gonna happen) but while at SHOT Show I stopped by the Kershaw booth and they swapped it out for a new one right there! Amazing customer service!I've always been more of a fan of tanto style blades but I got the Leek because it's super thing and fast to open. Great for easy, light, EDC carry. Just feels fragile.Pics of mine: Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image Nutnfancy Video:

SOG Trident. All black with 1/2 serrated blade. Assisted opening mechanism is so smooth and fast it's practically an automatic, which is a huge plus.  Going on three years and no complaints.

I carry a few blades. I used to use each one for a specific use but now I try to use them all equally. The Zero Tolerance is by far my favorite, the no-names are beaters and everything else is general utility based on the situation. EDC or on me all the time (knives 1-5):1.) Zero Tolerance 0350 plain blade in either my right front pocket or right front phone pocket (when rocking Blackhawk Lightweight Tactical pants)Posted Image 2.) Bucktool 360 multitool on my belt (strong side) Posted Image 3.) Silver no-name brand folder in either my right cargo pocket or left rear pocket Posted Image 4.) Black Victorinox Classic on my keychain with house keys Posted Image 5.) Red Victorinox Recruit in left front pocket Posted Image Others: (knives 6-8)6.) Occaionally a blue Victorinox Spartan (given as a gift with my name engraved on it) in a leather sheath in place of my multi-tool, but not very often Posted Image 7.) A black no-name brand tanto folder in my backpack (when I carry my backpack) Posted Image 8.) Ka-Bar style M-Techcombat/utility plain fixed blade on my belt (strong side) when doing yard work Posted Image

I carry a Kershaw Blur and and Spyderco Persistence. They are both great. the kershaw is ready at interview stance level and my Spyderco is ready from a seated position especially if I'm belted in. The Kershaw has an older grip on it...its literally like a mid coarse sand paper and now its a Tek-deck style skateboard synthetic style. I would recomend any of this hands down.

Anyone have any recommendations for slipjoint knives ?

I also carry a Kershaw Blur, it is one of the newer ones with the synthetic "Trac-Tec" grip inserts. I didnt think I would like the assisted opening, but I actually really have. It hasnt come open on its own yet! I actually got mine at a GREAT discount, $35 brand new, but it is a blem. I cant for the life of me figure out why it is though Posted Image

Any of you guys who edc a blur have a problem using the thumb stud that's so close to the blade on the AO? I had one for a while but I never liked how it didnt have a tang on the back of the blade to push with. Anyway my edc for knifes is either a Ken Onion Leek G10, or lately a ZT 300 tanto edge which I absolutely love. Best of both worlds, best of Stryder best of Ken Onion. And if not then I clip on a Esee/Rat rc3-mil which imo is probably the best fixed blade ever designed.

I'm not a knife enthusiast, but I certainly use them as tools.  Here are the few I have:On-duty: Blackhawk Be-Wharned, Ka-bar TDI, and an old Spyderco Endura.Off-duty:  Generally just the Be-Wharned unless I am working in the yard...then it is the Endura.I've got a bunch of other inexpensive knives in the BOBs as a backup to anything we are already carrying.-Richard
