About 5 years ago I got a knife. I work in the electric sign industry doing installation and service. A knife comes in handy numerous times in a day. Whether it's opening packages or crates, cutting through silicone, prying on things , etc..
It didn't take long after having it on me at all times to realize how handy they are in everyday life. You don't think about how often you can use one until you have one. And you even get "Do you have your knife on you?" pretty often from friends and family.
Anyway I was long boarding a couple months ago, got home, and realized my knife was gone. After being clipped into my back pocket for close to 5 years. These past couple months I've realized I really really need a knife. Yesterday I placed an order to replace the one I lost. Same model and color.
Let's see your knives. And feel free to share stories of any jams or unusual situations where your knife has saved the day.
I live on the edge... of town
OP, I know exactly where you are coming from. My EDK is a Meyerco Rascal. I don't need large knife for packages, tape, letter opening, cord & twine cutting, and so on. I found the Rascal perfect as it is light, small, holds a great edge, has a pocket clip, and is assisted-opening. I am on my 4th now, the previous 3 being long gone. Meyerco no longer makes this model and they are getting really hard to find. When this one goes and need to find another model, likely a Spyderco.
The Rascal is the bottom one -
My daily carry... And it has also helped me open a few bottles of beer when no bottle opener is around (talk about a close call ).
Since Benchmade has a lifesharp program, I sent in my knife last year to have it 'tuned'. It's like a brand new knife!
