I have 4 benchmade knives. All of them have been fantastic.

I have a:
griptillian 154cm
Adamas D2
North Fork S30V
Mini Crooked River S30v

Each have their pros. I EDC the grip and north fork, the Adamas and mini crooked are for hunting. People ask why spend that kind of money on a knife, same argument could be had on full synthetic vs conventional oil.

I like the blade sharp warranty and quality of the knife. They stay sharp much much longer than the cheaper 440 knives. The D2 and 154cm are my favorite steels so far. Benchmade is also made in the USA.

I used to be a leatherman and Gerber freak.
Then I broke both the army issued MUT and the issued Gerber multitools over the course of deployment back in 2013

I dont know if I still have the emails from 2013, but both companies pretty much said "warranty doesnt cover issued items, nor does it cover damage in combat settings"

I bought a Victorinox Swisstool X (at a very generous discount when I contacted victorinox at the time regarding my issues with their competitors) which has done me well since.

As for regular pocketknives, I either carry a
Case Sod Buster
Kershaw Tone Tanto
Or a CRKT Ripsnort

It depends on the day and what I am doing.

If I'm working around the house, camping, or any task that I expect to need a knife I carry a Spyderco Delica 4. Any other time I just carry a Victorinox Manager.

Quattro Pete, Thank you for link to the 9001 review, I hadn't seen that one yet.

Arrived today from Cutlery Shoppe: Spyderco Military. The Military is a beast compared to the Para Military 2. This will be my last Spyderco knife for a long while. I need to experience other brands. But boy I'll tell ya, Spyderco's are addicting.

Cabela's has these for $5 in various colors. It's quite small so easy to EDC.
