As promised, here is my one Boker. Super light and slim. Very James Bond'esque. I carry this one when I wear a suite

I carry these depending on the situation, all except for the Buck 110 I've owned since 1971. It stays pretty much stored away. The three blade one in the center area is what I used to take on backpacking trips. The three blades (fillet, utility, saw) interchange with the handle. It's great for when you might need something like that. I normally take the titanium handled Buck with I leave the house & use the one on the right for utility stuff around my place.

Nice Boker, Jeff. I’ve had this Al Mar for a lot of years. Wicked good steel.

These have a lot of miles on them- titanum scales on the big Benchmade with great steel blade, and a little old Mercator, razor sharp both.

I'd posted previously about the tiny Boker. I don't have any tiny knives, but it might be nice to have a very small knife that's small and easy to carry. I love my Benchmades and they are thin, light and easy to carry, but I'm curious about the smaller knives.

I have never carried a money clip and rarely carry cash, but this caught my eye today. I'm sure the steel is something ordinary that dulls quickly, but would get the odd job done. Something about this really appeals to me.

Ha I bought those about two years ago... I thought I saw it here which is why I bought one. They are great!i alternate it with my EDC when pocket space is at a premium.

We've got a LOT of knife threads here.

The best pocket knife (for me)

Hey, Pocket Knife Guys....

Another knife thread

Show Your Knife

Plus another one or two dozen of various descriptions and sizes.

I had a crap week this past week, and the missus and I ended up in a Whole Earth Provisions (they carry a pretty good collection of knives, including Benchmade which is my favorite mass production maker). The missus convinced me to make a purchase (It really didn't take much).

I looked at several. I like them mostly small and light for EDC, although I do have some beefy knives as well.

From my post a couple up, I mention being interested in some of the short stubby "micro" knives that you see these days. Benchmade makes one now, the 380 Aller, but other than having a really short stubby blade, it's not really that small, either open or closed. I also didn't like that there's no lock at all, either open or closed. I think it would be fairly secure both open and closed, but would be really grumpy if I reached into a pocket and it had opened.

Benchmade 380 Aller



Quote:
BLADE STEEL CPM-S30V (58-60 HRC)
BLADE LENGTH 1.60 [4.06cm]
BLADE THICKNESS 0.090 [2.286mm]
OPEN 4.48 [11.38cm]
CLOSED 3.30 [8.38cm]
WEIGHT 1.80oz [51.03g]
HANDLE THICKNESS 0.38 [9.65mm]
I liked the really sleek look of the Benchmade Fact, and checked it out, but it was much, much longer than I'd want (these days) for an EDC. The handle would actually provide a nice secure grip because of the ridges which is kind of nice these days with so many knives being smooth and slick.


Quote:
Blade Steel: CPMS30V (58-60 HRC)
Blade Length: 3.95" (10.03cm)
Blade Thickness: 0.110" (2.794mm)
Open Length: 8.72" (22.15cm)
Closed Length: 4.77" (12.12cm)
Handle Thickness: 0.48" (12.192mm)
Weight: 3.24oz. (91.85g)
I really liked the mini crooked river knife, but it's too pretty to EDC and get dinged up by keys, etc... I had an old Osbourne 940 with a red anodized finish that I carried for a long time. The handle is beat to hell with the anodization worn off in spots and some other worn bits. It's a really nice feeling little knife. I wanted it for sure.


Quote:
Blade Steel: CPM-S30V (58-60 HRC)
Blade Length: 3.40" (8.64cm)
Blade Thickness: 0.114" (2.896mm)
Open Length: 7.89 (20.04cm)
Closed Length: 4.50 (11.43cm)
Handle Thickness: 0.52 (13.208mm)
Weight: 3.29oz (93.27g)
I always look at the Valet while I'm there. In the past they had one with some sort of special handle material that was around $300. This time they had a normal handle material (G10 maybe)

Quote:
Blade Steel: M390
Blade Length: 2.96" (7.52cm)
Blade Thickness: 0.099" (2.51mm)
Open Length: 6.69" (16.99cm)
Closed Length: 3.73" (9.47cm)
Handle Thickness: 0.45" (11.43mm)
Weight: 2.18oz. (61.80g)
But, what I found that I went with was the Emissary 470-1 which seems to be the small version with a safety. I don't feel that I need the safety, but it isn't a bad thing to have either. It's a tiny bit smaller than my previous knife and also lighter.


Quote:
Blade Steel: CPM-S30V (58-60 HRC)
Blade Length: 3.00" (7.62cm)
Blade Thickness: 0.090" (2.29mm)
Open Length: 6.90" (17.53cm)
Closed Length: 3.90" (9.91cm)
Handle Thickness: 0.45" (11.43mm)
Weight: 2.20oz. (62.37g)
Then (she really did talk me into this one) I looked at this and was surprised at how well made it felt and also very small and very light (27 grams! so <1oz)
It's a "Deejo". It wasn't that expensive, I think $40. I have no idea what the steel is, I'm sure nothing exciting or exotic. It is a frame lock, super light, and seems to be pretty well made. The only downside is that you can't open it with one hand (you can close it with one hand though).



I found a website that said that the steel is 410 and the handle is Juniper.

My previous EDC and the two new knives.

Giant Mouse Ace Biblio. Got it awhile ago while reading through one of the many knife threads here. Power of suggestion. It's a great EC knife.

I like the locking mechanism of the Benchmades.

I have Deejo in my EDC rotation...It has a dragon tattoo, similar too how I am inked.. It isnt a heavy duty knife...you're not breaking down venison, or cleaning a bunch of fish with it... opening the mail, cleaning your nails, yes.




I've pictured this one before... but it is a fave... Mcusta Hammered Damascus...

Bought this a year or so ago. It's a sturdy brute I carry daily.

This Al Mar Quicksilver is my daily carry. A hell of a tough knife, thin carry, thick 1/8 hollow ground blade. The other is an early Anton Wingen jr. branded for Kershaw.

Looks pretty beefy.

I've got this one, but never carry it.
