It can be a nightmare. A lot of things have to be a 100% right. If you plan on making on, I'd be interested in the progress and maker.

I love pocket knives. Just wish they were as easy to keep track of as kitchen knives...I have never lost a kitchen knife, but many a pocket knife has fallen prey to the seat crack in my car...never to be seen again.

I hope Richmond Knives does not waste time and money on a folder. The field is crowded with quality knife makers, but nobody had made a Richmond Artifex paring knife.... For years my EDC has been a couple of Chris Reeve Umnumzaan folders, first in S30V, and now in S35VN. Fantastic knives, and I have never found them difficult to sharpen. For the last year I have also carried, in my Maxpedition man purse, a limited edition Benchmade McHenry Williams in M390 steel and it is an astonishingly good knife. I can't wait for Richmond Knives to start offering kitchen knives in M390! Hopefully, Mark will get us an Ultimatum in M390 before he wastes time and money on a folder.

Agreed, there are a plethora of options for pocket knives.

I agree with the others. There are plenty of affordable pocket knives out there with good steels already. A folder can be a pain to make, especially in limited amounts. If you want to make a folder for yourself, there are some decent kits out there. Jantz has a VG-10 core laminate (SS on the outside), and knifekits.com has some cool damascus blade/bolster kits, too.

I have a lot of pocket knives. Bunch of MicroTechs MA's, Benchmade Mini Rukus, Kershaw Leek, Scallion, Vapor, Volt 2, Nerve, Gerber Applegate Mini, CRKT M16. I usually carry a cheap knife at work so if it gets lots or something, I don't care. The Mini Rukus is my big knife, along with a MT Socom Elite. Usually EDC's are more utilitarian than tactical.

I rock the SOG Twitch as my EDC. I prefer carrying knives that deploy quickly. Usually, I am getting my knife out to cut something at work, and I don't want to spend time fumbling around to get my knife out.

Got a load of the epically spyderco and a sog, but I have come across a sleeper that if the best knife for the money I have ever used and I would pay twice the price it's made by the Ontario knife company yes old hickory and it is called the randal rat 1 it's aus8 steel and as nice or even nice than a few of my spydercos, I posted some pics some months ago called I for a ratt in the house with teeth nobody responded so I figured no one was interested. I will buy this knife again if anything happens to it and this thing is built tight I mean tight and takes a super edge. Peace, jmbullman. Into fixed blades to a couple hen and roosters and a Japanese hunter which I love and their are pics on the forum too. Hope you enjoy but seriously if you overlook the rat you have missed the winner. I would compare it too a shun vs a wasabi, and I actually prefer the wasabi line over the shun. Jmbullman
