    I'm glad someone else said it first. A good blade is sexy. Of course my ex wife hates it when I say that. She also hates that I call some guns cute. Thanks for simple wisdom Gabe. Maybe I spent too many years in the military but I always appreciate simple.

    So who wants to post a top 10 list of fighting folders? I carry something that I know is not ideal (Camillus Heat Tanto) and would like to move up to something a bit more robust. Suggestions?

    Also if I may add....
    Always carry two knives, one small for opening boxes and such the other slightly larger for opening people.

    If not.... Murphy will be there after opening a hundred boxes....

    On keeping them sharp, well said Mr. Chambers.

    Honestly, I'm terrible w/ a benchstone but a Spyderco Tri-Angle Sharkmaker (or something similar) is monkey simple.
    Anyone can keep their blade sharp w/ that.

    YIKES! I don't spend that much money buying cars! :)

    I'd be afraid to carry it and take a chance on losing it! :o

    BTW...BLACKHAWK was clearing out the "Silent Partner" and I missed it, but I picked up a new plain edge on eBay for 39.99. Over time if I break or lose it...no big deal. There are still some on there.

    There is a place for high dollar knives as well as high dollar guns. For example, here in AZ, the idea that one might need to ditch a knife is unheard of as the self-defense laws are great. However, stabbing a couple of would-be muggers in Tijuana (guys that are probably off duty security or cops), might necessitate different after action stuff.

    So having a nice kmife is fine, but travelling with a disposable one is better.

    In the past when living or visiting overseas I always had a throw-away on me, just in case.

    I think I said just that in the other thread..one carries a folder because a folder may be illegal in their area. If a fixed blade is cool, go fixed of course!
