Tailo - 806d2 is discontinued.

Nova - it looks like there are a few different versions of the Endura. Which one do you carry?
Yup, I know it is but there all over ebay right above his price range used. The AFCK has been around for a LONG time so theres plenty to be had.

I've got a 630 skirmish also but there more than a glock now so I left that out of the subject.

I have a knife maker client that got me hooked on knives - I probably have about 40 of them and I've been carrying a knife every single day for the last 8 years or so. I also work primarily at home on a few acres so (i) I can carry whatever I want without scaring anyone - switchblades, big fixed knives, whatever, and (ii) I actually use a knife daily for stuff like cutting hay bales and basic fix it stuff. For the last 18 months, I've been carrying this pretty much nonstop:


http://www.gpknives.com/queen-amber-...ntain-man.html

Queen Mountain Man with D2 steel blade and jigged bone handles. It's the same dimensions as a Buck 110 - 8.6" long open, 3.7" blade or so, but it's much slimmer and rounded off, so it totally disappears in my pocket. The blade is really beefy and D2 is practically indestructible for hard use. I even use it to split 2x6 lumber into kindling when camping, believe it or not. I have a lot of Benchmades, Al Mars, a few Spydercos and a ton of other random knives, including the aforementioned switchblades and fixed knives . . . but this thing is hands down my favorite. Something else to consider.

I wound up taking fine sandpaper to the blade of mine to give it a hand rubbed finish. I also put a convex (axe) edge on it.

My gut thoughts on Emerson are they are primarily targeted towards people looking for tactical and self-defense style knives. They're popular with cops. Ernie Emerson's custom knives are insanely expensive - like >$1k for what other custom makers charge $500.

The little metal tab at the top of the blade is designed so that it will catch on your pocket, opening the knife as you remove it from your pocket. I don't really like this for a couple of reasons:

It shreds your pocket.

It requires tip-up carry, which means that upon removing the now-open knife from your pocket, you are holding it at the base between your thumb and forefinger and you have to reposition the knife in your hand before using it - which is awkward. Tip up carry also means that if it opens slightly in your pocket your fingers are toast.

If you don't do it just right, you have a half-open blade caught on your clothing.

thats why i like my kershaw, its just a little tab on the back of the knife that you rub your finger along the back of and the knife flips open. it doesnt get caught on clothing or accidently open. it locks open firmly and is just very solid.

Been carrying my sog flash 2 for 3 years now. Holds an edge real nice, the pocket clip tapers out a little so it sits fully concealed in your pocket. The ak47 of knives.

Funny you just posted that. I was coming here to throw out an update that I ordered the Kershaw Black Blur Glassbreaker. It was $53 shipped to my house.

Thanks to everyone for the suggestions!
