In all seriousness, I'm not sure whether kitchen or pocket knives are more complicated, and that's saying something. I, instead of learning about it, just pick a few brains when I need a new one.

That doesn't always work. The last time I tried asking around everyone tried to get me to buy an Opinel. Not quite what I had in mind.



There are mods to make Openls able to be opened one-handed...

Following this thread... :)

JEFF <> I've appendix carried a second generation Endura, everyday of my life since 1994. Work clothes, dress clothes, just boxers around the house... I always have it.. and always use it. I, like COACH, have a pile of them, but mine are all SECOND GENERATION ENDURAS. I get them on ebay in different blade types. As a serrated pocket knife (all of mine are full or half serrated), I dont care if its AUS8, G2, VG10. All the ones pictured here are 4th generation. I can't stand their bolt on clips, I can't stand the thumbhole as it's oriented differently, and guess what... I can't stand the new grip pattern in the handle nor the composite itself.

And as LEPUS is Benchmade for life, I'm not only going to never not have my 2nd Gen Enduras, but I really dislike all the other brands mentioned here.

GINGER <> It's more than just the clips as I detailed, but the clip is a molded piece of the handle... it's not a bolt-on as they now are.

You really can't go wrong with the Delica. Light, four clip positions and available in three different steels. The ZDP-189 is the most durable although the VG-10 is very nice too for the money. If I need something larger I take the PM2. Just say no to serrated or tanto, chisel and all these makers who throw stuff out there for the folks that don't know any better.

Sorry it's with my phone but it was quick before school started:

The lightweight Manix 2 is 3 ounces or around there. I think it's lighter than the Native 5.

Not exactly the OP's question, but I like the Military (s90v at the moment, my CTS-xhp one was stolen by TSA on a trip from my checkin luggage) and the Manix-2 in CPM- M4. I also carry a Jess Horn in clad zdp-189 as a smaller Spyderco. Not a big fan of S30v. I do like zdp-189. I also have a couple of Police models in VG10 and a smaller one that I keep on my keychain (Aluminum scales, forgot the model). I'm pretty much a harcore Spyderco fan - just addicted to the 'hole' and detest thumb studs.

Well I ordered the Native that rook suggested since it was on sale but I am probable going to seek out an Endura at some point too to have something a little larger. I think I'll like having them both. Might pick up a PM.

OMG! NOT ANOTHER ADDICTION! :o
