Hey guys! I don't know if there is a thread for tis already or not, but I figured it would be nice to see what kind of knives everybody loves.

I have a Buck Alpha Hunter in 154CM Steel (w/o a gut hook), and I love it!

What is your favourite knife?

It's really hard to pick a favorite for me since it totally depends on what I really need to do. Overall my favorite is my Applegate Fairbairn knife since I've owned two of them. After that I love my minibuck when it comes to field dressing an animal.

The favourite knife I owned was a everyday carry SOG Flash 2.
Perfect size, sits low in the pocket, pocket clip was in the right place, easy to open, sharp, and priced right.

Not much of a "knife" but that one has to be my leatherman. In the 15 or so years I've owned it she has only been off my belt twice. Once for a flight the other for a court appearance.

I have to ask... Did the flight take place directly after the court appearance?...lol...

My fave knives are my moras... Yeah, they don't have that cool factor but I work my knives hard and these things hold up... And for the price,you can keep a half dozen around and sharp at all times...

Flight was coming home from vacation in Myrtle Beach, SC (drove in using a borrowed vehicle) post 911 ... Court appearance was over a parking ticket. I saw them metal detectors and realized they were going to take her away... Made a 180 and put her in the car. I remember days where she was passed around on flights to and from Florida so people could open them bags of peanuts that you need a knife to open. Never in my life did I feel as naked as I did those 2 times.

Kershaw "Needs Work". I've had it for years. It's got a nice heavy, dead straight blade. It's very easy to sharpen and holds an edge for a VERY long time. The handle is tilted back a bit so if you need to cut something off cleanly on a flat surface, it's dead simple. All you have to do to open it is push on a tang on the back of the blade....way faster and easier to open than any assisted opener with a thumb spur. I've been a knife critic for years, and I have nothing bad to say about this knife.

Go to the 2 minute mark to see the guy opening it a couple times and you'll see what I mean. No, it's not video lag...the blade really does come out that fast. If you prefer a curved blade, they make one called a Cyclone that's the same design.

Love my Leathermen.... yes "men", I have the old Wave (no screwdriver bit tool) and a C33 pocket... http://www.leatherman.com/product/c33/c33x
I hate serrated blades, unless it's a dedicated steak knife :) I have others, but these are my two most used tools.

Still have the Gerber I bought to replace the one I was issued... Don't remember the model, but the small flathead screwdriver on it is broken off.

Take note - never try to clear an 858 FTE with a flathead screw driver :)

I'd like to have it fixed though... ole faithful's been with me for close to 7 years and done everything from gardening, to renovations, to mounting scopes, to reloading. I'm quite attached to it, to be honest :)

I also have a Victorinox "Champ" I started carrying again. I've had it since I was a young boy, obsessed with Swiss Army knives. http://www.swissarmy.com/us/product/Swiss-Army-Knives/Category/Everyday/SwissChamp/53501

It's good for the smaller, more delicate jobs.

I don't carry it, but my Grandmother gave me a Victorinox "Camping" knife, I think when I turned 9. I should have that mounted in a display somewhere. I never liked knives, weaponry, or anything "manly" before she gave me that.

Thank the good Lord my Dad didn't take it away from me after I got expelled from High School for pulling a knife on a bunch of grade 12 students when I was in grade 10.

He took most of my other knives away and gave me one heck of an arse-whoppin'. I had it coming though and am glad he did.

Picking a favorite is a hard one for me. I have many knives and they all have different purposes. My EDC consists of at least 3 knives. I carry a Emerson Mini CQC-7 front right pocket. I carry a Strider Tanto DGG SnG and a Strider SJ75 both in Lifter's Leather sheaths on my belt. Each one has a different role and is part of many of the knives I use all the time. If I am going to go into my warehouse and break down boxes or cut open a lot of plastic straps a simple partially serrated Spyderco Delica is hard to beat.

My favourite pocket knife is the Kershaw leek by far. The SOG flash 2 is second.

My overall favourite blade is the Gerber LMF, it stays in my Jeep and has removed trees fallen over the road. It's one of those knives that is more a tool than a blade.

my favorite was a knife i picked up in a pawn shop in corpus Christi TX. i dont remember what the name of it was, but it was a tanto blade about 6-7ish inches long. the handle was the full tang plus a little step up of metal the size of the handle it had 4 holes down the center of the handle.

i wish i could remember what it was. i put it threw everything while working on the shrimp boats. +more after i moved to Washington, no matter what i did to it it would not break and the blade edge would not allow me to put a nick or dent in it. if the edge was hit it would slightly flatten, but refused to fail.

terrible description i know, i have been looking for another one for years. the one i had was taken away by customs when i came back to Canada, even when i declared it and told them what it was, they still complained took it out of the locked bank deposit bag and took all the tape off(had a ton of duct tape on it because i was riding greyhound). their excuse was i was to young to have a knife(16 a few months from 17).

if i can find another i would buy it in a heartbeat without any thought or hesitation.

I carry a Leatherman wave in my pocket when I am at college. When I am working I carry the Wave on my belt and an Ontario RAT-1 clipped in my pocket. The Rat's are great, I bought a pair of them and haven't managed to kill either yet. I have killed a deer with one though.

If I am dressing up or going out I carry a basic grohman folder in one pocket, Rat or Leatherman in the other. I am thinking about picking up a Cold Steel Baconmaker Folder as an alternative to the Rat.

New "favorite" full-size knife is the Gerber LMF II I've owned for about 24hrs .... MUCH lighter and more handy than the M9 bayonet I've been taking to the bush with me. It even comes with leg straps so I can just strap her to my leg and forget about it rather than having the big-ass bayo clunk, clunk, clunk along on the wheel spokes strapped to my belt as I move along.

both are Buck-Strider collaborations. the top being the Tarani and the bottom the SBMF Tactical. both are hands down the toughest folders i've ever seen and the handle shape fits my little paw perfectly. as much as i'd like to, i can't justify buying any more folding knives. these are the creme de la creme.

That's good to hear, I was looking to pick up a spyderco tenacious, and a kershaw cryo. I have a lot of the cheaper knives that I always pick up when I am bored and see them at CT, but figure I'd pick up something a little better but not too extreme.

I have some really nice "hunting" knives, but I am sure it won't be appreciated if I was walking around the city with them..

At risk of "un-hijacking" this thread, my favourite knife is a Ruko that I bought over 40 years ago. I was 13 years old and it was one of the first things I remember buying with my own money. I carried it regularly it for about 25 years and then "lost" it on one of our moves across the country. On our most recent move it showed up again, somewhat worse for wear. I sand blasted the blade, spent considerable time sharpening it and then replaced the plastic grips with hand carved lignum vitae. It's delightfully warm to hold and is decidedly customized to my right hand. It's German RC-60 Solingen steel. Not the finest blade in the world but it has huge sentimental value. I often have it on my hip in the workshop and always when I'm out in the woods, camping, etc... For day to day carry around town I have a folding Mel Pardue blade by Benchmade. 154cm. Just right for the pocket and most tasks.

Edit: Seems my link to photo doesn't work. Here's a link to the blog entry where I rejuvenated this old knife.

One of the best knives I have ever used is a little cheapy Frosts knife from Lee Valley. Hard hard steel that keeps an edge for ever, even whittling away at some ancient seasoned oak.
The one that gets used the most is easily my Leathermen. Not the best steel, but always there.
I feel lost and nekkid without my Leatherman :run: :eek1:

Well, I'm no expert. I like what I have and I have what I like. My grandfather bought my dad a Bowie knife when he was young, and he passed it on to me. The blade is ugly, the sheath is nothing special, and the handle is a bit uncomfortable, but much like an SKS, it's built like a tank. It can hold an edge well enough, but it sharpens without a lot of effort. Mostly I only need to hone it after use. I've only got a couple of blades, so this one is my all around go-to tool if I am packing light. I've used it to filet a fish, then cut up 5" logs into firewood. It's big and heavy and will hack through a fat log with relative ease, if you don't mind a few blisters.

Excuse my laziness, I'll use an old pic with my Mav88:

http://imageshack.us/a/img51/1136/882ai.jpg

I'm sure it's nothing special to more refined tastes, but it has value to me as it is the closest thing to an heirloom I will get from my grandfather (through my father) who passed away decades ago.

That hook is called the wave, or emerson opener. When you pull it out of your pocket the hook catches on the edge of your pocket and opens. It's pretty awesome.

Now that I have one I don't know if I'd be able to live with a knife that doesn't have the emerson opener

My EDC is a DPx HEST 2.0 folder as it to has a wave feature. Very different design than the Emerson or spyderco, it is a much lower profile cutout in the back off the blade but it functions the same. It also works as a bottle opener :)

My brother took up leather work since he got old and made me two knife sheaths for Xmas and they showed up here this week and in one he placed a Gerber BG folder so that will become my new toy till I get bored again. He even included the survival pamphlet that they sell with the knife. I think he was just being funny.

Though I have a whole drawer full of knives and sharp things in the basement, I still like a Buck 110 folder on my belt. Guess I just like the classics.... It gets trumped by a Buck Vanguard fixed blade with the rubber coated handle for a month or so every fall....

An excellent knife for sure . I have been using one for years ; and it is the choice for Forest Rangers and Game Wardens in this area......and they use their knives a lot !

I have the 110 also an mine got used a lot. I bought a Buck folder that has the red plastic handle back about 30 some years ago and it got used a lot also as it was so light weight. But my usual knife was always a Buck 307 that I carried in a sheath instead of my pocket along with a tiny steel I found from Germany probably 40 years ago.

For deer hunting my Russell #1 by Grohman. I have others that are bigger, fancier and cost more. None are better for the job.

I've wanted one of those for years but haven't run across one.
Are they fairly soft or do they hold an edge well when going through deer hair?

Started with Buck knives, have now gone to Grohman knives for moose and deer. The #1 is my favourite. Canadian made and well worth the price.

In my experience it will hold an edge at least sufficiently to field dress and skin out a good sized buck. I've been through 2 or 3 deer without sharpening and it's ok. I suspect the steel is a little softer than higher end knives (others may know better), but it does its job so well. I have not used it on moose.
