This hasn't changed very much since I originally wrote this in 2009. I EDC the Blackhawk Be-Wharned and still love it, and will be getting the Spyderco Yojimbo II very soon. The AFCK is now gone, and the older one I have resides in the safe. Still a great design, but I prefer the wharnies to anything else on the market. The Ronin is not going anywhere, I will hold onto it from now on. I also have a Gerber Mark I that is a nice dagger, and a CRKT Kasper Polkowski Companion, but both reside in the safe. I believe wharnies are the way to go for an anti-personnel knife.
