    So what do you keep in the center console and on your person?

    Don't know why I have so many in my truck.

    Here are what I carry, not at the same time, of course :)

    For when I go hiking, usually just take the Gerber and one of the Benchmades above.
    Ka-Bar is a little too big so it's just kept at home.

    EDC is a Benchmade mini barrage, serrated blade with valox handle, I have many pocket knives but the lock and release system system on this in my favorite, easy one hand closure, I do not like liner lock type knives.

    My favorite daily carry is my Kershaw Rainbow Leek. Just learned that back in 2002 it was rated the top knife. So I have a classic. Not too shabby. Looks great, one-handed opening. Always gets compliments from its unique look.

    Still rocking the stock height.
    My EDC when not at work is a Kershaw Ken Onion design. Love it because it’s thin, has a tactical flipper, and particularly serrated blade with liner lock. Sometimes have a 5.11 fixed blade, if I don’t have my 1911 on me, as it would be where my extra mags are.

    My EDC is a Benchmade Griptillian with custom aluminum scales. I keep a Mora companion in my center console.

    Bright side is that you won't be empty handed when cross state line

    Google images since I don't have my phone handy for pics. If I get time I'll gather them all together and take a pic.

    In my pocket virtually every day is a Buck-Strider SBMF folder. It was a collaboration knife between the two companies and is the best knife I've ever owned. I've been using it for around 12 years now and it's indestructible. Fits my hand perfectly too:

    [​IMG]

    I also have a Buck-Strider Tarani which is a slightly higher grade version made with a few different materials. I bought this one used and the previous owner jeweled the pocket clip with his drill press. Gives it a sweet "holo" sheen.

    [​IMG]


    On my belt in the woods is a BarkRiver Kephart FT with African micarta ebony scales in a leather Sharpshooter sheath. Can't find an identical pic but this is the same knife with different scales:

    [​IMG]

    Clipped to my pack or on the back of my belt while fishing is a ESEE 4 in a Kydex sheath

    My EDC knife. Clip it into my right front pocket every morning. Feel lost without it.

    Beautiful knives. Don't think I could bring myself to use them as they cost 100 times more than my perfectly serviceable Kershaw.

    I've carried alot of knives over the years. Love benchmades and still carry a mini barrage often, but lately my favorite carry is a Kershaw Leek. For the price ($35ish on Amazon), it holds a great edge and I love the feel of it. Barely know its in your pocket. Also has a version of assisted opening which makes it even better. Tough to beat for the price....
