    Searched but didnt find a thread dedicated to Utility Knives?
    So I thought I would start one here, I have been curious about going this route for a knife for a while now.
    I have plenty of quality knives, but wanted to change up my EDC.
    For one thing, pocket space gets taken up with keys, phone, flashlight, wallet.
    I dont like having anything in the same pocket as my phone, but, jeans have a coin pocket, so I thought that would be a perfect place for a small utility knife.

    I bought a Outdoor Edge Slidewinder for $10 on Amazon to try out.
    Which I have to say, for $10, its really nice. Bit more plastic than I like, especially in the mechanism of it, but if it holds up, its gonna be great.
    Feels good in the hand, has alot of other utility packed into one item.
    Figured it was a cheap way to see if I liked this before I bought the one I would really like to have,, the Big Designs TPT Slide for $80

    What blades are you guys using? Just a $8 pack of 100 Stanley blades and replace them often, or something a bit longer lasting?

    Post up what you got guys!

    I do like how slim that is. One handed operation was a big thing for me, that really limits your choices.

    I use the Stanley blades. I have had to leave the blade with TSA and kept the holder. The agent just looked at me when I gave him the blade only.

    I own the Quark, Gerber, TPT and Rexford. All have +\- as to which is better.

    Lenox gold have a titanium coating that makes the edge last longer. Four notches gives you more options on how to use em. Hundrepack and your done.

    Purchased this a few months ago off ebah for a few dollars, made fairly well but very hard to deploy blade, you have to use your finger nail to pry apart the two sides to allow the blade to move forward

    Got one of those over a year ago, I never carried it due to what you mentioned, just too hard to get the blade in and out.
    Dont like the long prybar section on the rear of it making it long either.

    Still liking the Outdoor Edge Slidewinder a good bit. I took the clip off, and make a lanyard for it, carrying it in my jeans coin pocket.

    This is a cheap knock off of the rexford RUT. It have been reported to fail to contain the blade when you bring force to bear in a cut, making you cut the palm of your hand

    :censored:, that sounds bad. cannot be too hard to make this in a folded design instead of riveting two pieces together, and it would be perfectly safe. thanks for the warning. I but I won't buy the original either, it is just to expensive for what it is.
