      New EDC knife - the cheaper Gerber will remain as the work knife (high chance of losing it in the dark in the desert...)

      It says USA on the blade...which makes me curious, if its legitimately made in the US. I have my doubts. However, brilliantly nice knife, and exactly what I wanted (nice and G10 handle). Slicker than ****...will have to adjust to carry it with the different pocket-clip orientation.

      ^^^Nice blades. How you like the tanto point? Is that H&K a auto flipper? I have a cheapie gerber (EAB) coming for work too. Figured it make a nice daily.

      Actually I'm a huge fan of tantos...mainly because you can run the angled-tip to open boxes without worrying about punching your knife straight into the box.
      The HK is just a manual flicker as far as I'm concerned. I don't **** around with switchblades or assists or anything - its butter smooth (as to be expected from a Benchmade)
      The Gerber has served me very well - it wiggles a bit after we threw our knives at our targets while doing some firearm practice.

      God bless Oregon, I love that I can just drive over to all the best knife makers and walk out with switchblade if I wanted. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]
      Gerber, Benchmade, Leatherman, Kershaw, they're all in like a 10 minute radius. Not to mention the Portland Gun/Knife show, some crazy stuff there.

      if that is the 14200-70, then it is 100 percent USA. benchmade's HK line has increased significantly in quality from previous years, whenever it says import on the label, it means it is made in taiwan. their harley line imho has better quality than HK.
      I enjoy the action on the axis lock, it is pretty enjoyable, but the automatic on the infidel is oddly satisfying
      anyways, great buy! benchmade is a great company, Les is a great guy, and I enjoy buying from them not only because of quality, but great customer service

      ^^^Makes me want to buy a benchmade. I know a guy that swears by them, and has thousands of dollars invested in his bm collection. Here's a sample, threw a few others of his in too:

      Well I don't know if you'd call it tactical though it could be, picked up a updated version of the gerber eab for 10 bucks imo you can't go wrong. Great for me as a edc:


      Just needed something to hold me over as I wait on my new custon necker from tops & my izula from esee. Hopefully they'll ship soon?

      Here's my newest blade. Tops ferret neck knife:


      I have a ESEE izula coming in next which I'm very excited for. Had a custom digital camo sheath made for it too set up for horizontal belt carry.

      Thanks, I have a larger cold steel necker, but I wanted something a little smaller. I could also wear the izula as a necker too, hope to have pics of that within the month?

      Just did a trade with a guy on bladefroums for my first one off custom made knife. It's a David Farmer blade made of 1095 high carbon steel with a brazilian hardwood handle. It's coming with a leather sheath, but a new custom kydex sheath is in the works with molle locks.

      I have many production blades, but nothing custom so I'm kinda excited.

      Personal preference imo & how often you plan to sharpen the blade in question.

      2" blade inox blade, 14 inox and polymer tools built for your most hardcore tactical adventuring and its European design means its `leeter than some namby American knife speciality built for fat, uncouth, and uncoordinated Americans!
      Its the Koenigsegg of knives, to your silly American SUVs! </TCL>
      I tried to make it as exciting and tough-themed as most knife pictures, but I was limited to what I had in the orifice with me today.
      I guess I should've jabbed it into the pressboard of my desk infront of the telephone, but they probably wouldn't apprechiate that here.

      I remember the sense of adulthood or trust that I had when my dad bought me my first knife (I think it was a little Buck folder) when I was maybe...10?

      X3, and then I promptly sliced my finger open the same day I got it. Nothing serious, no stitches, lesson learned.
