    If you're OK with 440C steel it is something to consider. Price on Amazon right now is about $16 depending on whether you opt for green or black G-10. I'll also say the axis lock seems solid albeit stiff out of the box... which I for one have also often found true on actual BM knives. YMMV....

    L'chaim!

    I just returned from time travel to August 28, 2015, the first post in Chapter 11 of this thread, just for fun. I went through pages 1-5. It's interesting how many of the knives and gear posted have serious staying power. With the exception of a few oddballs, much of the same stuff continues to get posted presently. I suspect, like me, many here find something they like and don't stray too far or often.

    So true. Despite having many, many knives, my "EDC knife right now" is usually my Spyderco Tenacious. I will occasionally pocket another knife out of "guilt" or just for a change, but always come back to my Tenacious. Yet, I still want to buy more knives... :confused:

    Mid-week rotation change. 'Just in case' any of y'all keep score on my carry (which I doubt ;), I've lightened my load.) Figured out I'd been carrying a LM Blast on a belt sheath forever and really didn't use it. So its gone from the carry -- I still have it in my bag though. Come to think of it, lightening the load day before gorging on turkey etc may be of strategic importance! :):
    • LF pocket, on Pangea Ti Pickpocket dangler: LM Squirt PS4
    • Coin pocket: Spyderco Manbug; black FRN handle; lock back. 1 7/8" VG-10 leaf shaped blade, SE grind.
    • LF pocket on a clip; Kershaw 1550 'Blackout'. Molded plastic handle. 3.25" drop point blade of 440A steel, PE with black coating. assisted opening deployment. One of my oldest knives -- picked it up ~2007. This is one of the earliest Kershaw Speedsafe designs (by Ken Onion). Now discontinued. The later ones used the Sandvik 14C28N steel with DLC coating. Mine is from the much earlier generation.

    I've been carrying a ZT 0566 for a couple years. Although I have purchased an 0630 and 0900 since then, I just really like the 0566. It is seriously underrated, imho.

    For the start of the new week:
    • LF pocket, on Pangea Ti Pickpocket dangler: LM Squirt PS4
    • Coin pocket: Spyderco Ladybug Salt Hawkbill; yellow FRN handle; lock back. 1 7/8" H1 hawk bill blade, SE grind.
    • LF pocket in a leather slip case; Kershaw 1660 silver frame lock Leek. Metal handle. 3" Wharncliffe blade of Sandvik 14C28N steel, PE, assisted opening deployment.
    Slight edit/update: instead of the leather slip case I've got the Leek hanging from a P7 clip in my pocket. Just a wee bit easier and quicker to deploy!

    L'chaim!

    • LF pocket, on Pangea Ti Pickpocket dangler: LM Squirt PS4
    • Coin pocket: Spyderco Manbug Salt Rescue; yellow FRN handle; lock back. 1 7/8" H1 sheep's foot, SE grind.
    • RF pocket on a deep carry clip; Kershaw 1556Ti Cryo II flipper; flat steel handle; 3.25" drop point 8Cr13MoV PE blade; assisted open; liner lock; blade and handle are TiCN coated. This is a Hinderer design with open construction.

    The Sage has become my favorite and only EDC over the past few years.
    I rarely bring a second knife but when I do it's my "deal of the century" Ladybug H1 with a mysterious Shell logo that I paid $3 for at a yard-sale.
