ok, I have to brag on my brother, Steve Fecas who is a custom knife maker. These are some of his designs that benchmade has been using over the last 5 years or so. The Benchmades run about $30. His custom knives go from $700-1200 or so.

reading back on my original post here is a surprise. i am now NEVER without a knife on my hip or in my pocket...even around the house.

as a backup, i am using a very small folder, which is paper thin, as a money clip.

i forced myself to start carrying regularly, and now feel naked without a knife.

I have several others given to me as gifts over the years, but I don't carry them anymore due to airport security and my forgetfullness to take them off before going to the airport.

I have a Leatherman and case that I really like, which will be my companion when I FIRE, 'cuz I'm always tinkering with something when I'm not working in an office..

Ditto- I always used to carry a little swiss army penknife-the smallest model, with scissors; but since I travel extensively the over-reaction to 9-11 made it too difficult to carry one anymore. Even though the blade is less than 2" long and supposedly OK to travel with, I have had several confiscated by overzealous TSA'ers, especially in smaller market airports-sometimes for the blade, sometimes for the 1" scissors. One Barney Fife clone in Idaho snatched a pair of nailclippers out of my computer bag, crowing like he had just singlehandedly captured Osama Bin Laden after a fierce spec ops firefight. He spastically twisted the nail file back and forth until it broke off and then offered them back. He seemed genuinely offended when I told him to keep them...

Still got my swiss army knife, with all important beer bottle opener. I still need to get my Cold Steel Tanto folder and Spyderco sharpened. They are serrated, and I don't have stones to sharpen them.

I carry a little two blade Case that I bought in 1979. Nothing special, just a knife. My favorite is a Leatherman.

I used to, maybe I will again. As long as I don't get on a plane.

As long as I can remember, my dad has always carried a pocket knife (and a buckeye).

I've never needed one, I have long fingernails.

My dad gave me this Swiss army knife a few years ago. He got it while he was ummm...in the army, circa 1954. The blades are still very sharp. I just might clean up this guy and carry it with me....

Yes. When I was a kid, he told me a buckeye carried in the pocket would keep arthritis away. Anything he told me...I believed. He was/is my daddy. I think he got a big grin out of that and still carries a buckeye.
