Glock field knife. Not fancy, but inexpensive & tough. Also balanced for throwing & can be a bayonet. I have a 79 and an 81. In black, of course.

Currently checking knife blade types designs. I guess I'd rather get something that feels like art and not just a tool, if that makes sense?

Randall Model 18 (Survival Knife) in 7.5" blade length. Knurled handle, compass in cap, waxed sheath.

Not stainless, although that's a popular option with this model.



I put the order in back in November of 2016, paid balance on 2016 price earlier this year (about $95 cheaper than today's price).

I broke down and bought a folder I've been lusting after for a while. A Scandi, but folding - the Helle Kletten. Blade is around 2", which is what I prefer for daily use (pencil sharpening, box opening, etc.)

The search is on for the perfect pouch now.

Those are neat. A buddy of mine collects Randall. He Picked up a careworn example, and had me clean it up before he gave it to his son. Theyíre such solid tools.

Yeah, I'm a huge fan. I'm building up a nice collection as the "foldin' money" allows.

Twice a year I go up to Tulsa to help with a table full of Randalls at the Wanenmacher show.

My EDC is a 4" model 5 with (default) stag handle. I bought it from a friend that received it as a gift from another mutual friend.

Cool!

What are your thoughts on EDCíing a fixed-blade knife? Iíve never done it before. Iím completely suburban these days as well, so I donít know if I could pull it off on a personal level.

Iíve been thinking more and more about getting into forging, just for fun, so Iíd have an excuse to carry a beautiful fixed-blade knife. My high school had a foundry, forge, welding, and machine shops. I think we all forged a few knives/swords at some point and it was super fun.

We also started a holster company not long ago, and I think some handmade knives would jive well with our business model.

My EDC for the last decade has been a Kershaw Leek. Super boring, I know, but they just work.

Had a similar conundrum with a Spyderco C44 Dyad knife. A bit too big for pocket carry by itself. By happy coincidence, a horizontal cell belt phone case was close by. I checked - nearly a perfect fit. That never happens to me.

Kershaw Ken Onion Leek:

I guess I'm not that original, since they say it's "the most popular knife in the world."

Brothers united in mediocrity! I guess, congratulations to us for having mass-market taste? Lol.

Pretty hard to beat for ~ $60.

There used to be, maybe still is, an eBay seller called KershawGuy, who sold factory blems, marked on the blade with Xís, for about half price. Most of the guys in my shop were carrying those blem Leeks and Chives.

I like EDC'ng a fixed blade, but I carry it on the left side. I have a Benchmade Axis-lock folder clipped in the right front pocket.

That gives me the freedom to abuse the BM a little bit and keep the RMK for "I seriously need a sharp knife right now."

I live on one acre in a little 30-lot community out in the weeds, so there are times where it's handy.

I've been carrying a fixed blade (but usually shorter than 2.5") for about 15 years now. I'm a leftie, so it's always left-side, and always a small folder in the right-hand rear pocket. It served my needs fine for that time.

However, now I'm trying out a folder as the main cutlery. Will see how that plays out...

i have a very similar kershaw for when something small is better, and typically carry larger benchmade axis lock knives.
