Recently I've had a couple negative reactions over my Benchmade 940. Not cause of how "scary" and "switch blade murder weapon" it is, but because of the price tag. I tell em my philosophy: If you are fine with carrying a $5 cheap pocketknife that does everything you need, that's fine. It works for you. But I use my knives a lot more than most people, and I have come to want something of quality. Each of my EDC knives serves it's own purpose, too. The Leatherman Wave gets used daily for everything, so does the Benchmade 940, and my Spyderco Bug is used for loaning and small stuff. My Leatherman Style CS is mainly for the scissors, and my Boker credit card knife sits in my wallet as a last ditch.
