Would like to get a nice knife for yeah unboxing but also to use on the barge, it doesn’t need to be big but good steel is a must (I have honing stones and skillz) comfortable in hand with a quick opening action (no flick knives in the UK) so looking at Benchmade any other suggestions?
I was into knives for a bit…bought a few and learned a lot. Many good reviews on the
Cold Steel American Lawman. Rugged build, 3.5 inch blade, G10 scales and now in S35VN steel, which holds an edge and is stainless (since you are around water.) Knife Center currently has it on sale for $119. Benchmades are good, but imo overpriced.
I’m more of a kitchen knife guy myself, with Shun being my preferred brand along with Misono.
I carry an Ochs Works pocket knife around with me that I got off of Drop that I love. Feels good in the hand, not too bulky, and holds its edge very well. I tend to beat up pocket knives, and usually need to replace them yearly, but this one has held up nicely
@Ohmboy I have several civivis fantastic fit and finish have had no problems so far. Even their D2 holds up decently well, their Nitro V has been awesome so far I really like that budget steel. QSP, Sencut (We knives 3rd brand after Civivi), CJRB, And direct from Ferrum Forge are all great budget options. There’s a lot out there.
OK finally ordered a Benchmade as I could order it real easy from Amazon UK…knife laws here are way different from over there in the US I’d imagine we have more laws in-place for owning a knife over a certain length etc than you do regarding purchasing an AK47 ?
