here's what I've got and the problems I've had with 'em

CRKT M16 (cheapo version) Liner lock always over extends, it's a pain in the rear to fix. This is my fiddle around with a flipper knife.

Gerber Obsidian: My EDC For going on two years now, not a long time in the realm of knives, but it hasn't failed me yet. My only quibble is the 440C which couldn't hold an edge with a magnet :roll: It stayed sharp enough through some light pine battoning (dumb plan, don't do it), but it lost a shaving sharp edge in a couple uses

Schrade SP-2: first knife, is now my backup carry because it's tiny and light, again, 440C quibbles

Various Gas station knives for fiddling around

Swamp Rat Knife Works HRLM: two words: Sharpened Crowbar. it's modified 52100 ball bearing steel, differential heat treat to 58 Rockwell, 4" blade, .19" thick, it's an incredibly tough knife from what I can tell, and a quick run over some ceramic stones got it shaving sharp, it still needs to be sharpened more. This company made a folder at one point, named the "Rat Trap" S30V stainless, liner lock, if you ever have $200-$300 to spend on a folding knife, that would be my way to go, or a Hinderer if you could find one that cheap.

sorry if I'm rambling on to no end, but this was just my understanding of how I could help. If there's any other way I can be of assistance, please let me know
I make and sell custom cutting boards. Pricing is very reasonable and the worksmanship very good. PM me if interested.

I'm just having trouble finding a place to begin. The market for knives is a lot larger than Airsoft or RS guns so that is why I don't know where to start.

you really dont need to be worried about something flicking open in your pocket. i carry a Kershaw Tanto Blur (speedsafe) on me at all times. ive had it configured tip up, tip down, and there are zero locks on it. the spring in it actually keeps it from opening really easily. it also keeps you (especially knife newbies) from slamming the blade on your thumb when you close it, cause the spring catches it about halfway down. its a really great knife, and only $60, i think. got mine at wally world. great heft, fits good in your hand.
