    I think its time to upgrade my EDC knife, looking for pics and opinions on what you all carry. I'm leaning towards an assisted open higher quality and I'm partial to a tanto blade as they have been more durable in my experience. Thoughts?

    Here's my Benchmade HK Snody.

    Lately I've been carrying an assisted Kershaw Turbulence that I like a lot. The build quality isn't quite up to the level of the Benchmade, but it's a good EDC.

    I carry a benchmade 8600 bedlam at work and whenever I cant carry my gun. Love the look and how nice it fits in my hand.

    The timberlite is just that extremely lite and holds an edged very well. They're cheap enough to have in every place you may need a knife tackle box, glove box, etc. The non serated is harder to find though.

    my pocket folder is by CRKT. although it does not have assisted open, a slight flick of the wrist makes it pop out as if it was....

    I currently use a Kershaw Clash. Will probably upgrade to something else in a couple of months, but it has treated me well so far.

    Iceman--how do you like that TDI? I've heard mixed things about the sheath.

    Love my CRKT, though with the black blade I am more hesitant to use it as a tool than I was with my last CRKT.

    Ditto on the Kershaw, iGun! I have all kinds and grades of knives but I love these Chinese Kershaws! The slender scales fit my small hands and I especially like the Persian style blade. I bought three of them!

    Hey Sarge--the Turbulence is made right here in 'merica. And the price right now is unbeatable... I'm tempted to get another one.

    Well, you sure are right, iGun! Mine are the model 1940 Compound and they appear to be identical, but the compound is slightly larger! They are indeed Chi-Com! Fine with me, hold an edge and sturdy. Sorry about maligning your Turbulence! SRG

    My 1790 says 'no worries but don't let it happen again' ;-). Here's an interesting comparison of the USA vs Chicom knives. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RyPr1ox7Lk

    I have a well worn & often used Benchmade Griptilian. I got bought this after reading a thread much like this a few years ago on this sight. It might be THE best EDC knife i've ever owned. Axis lock!

    I actually Like it a lot. I wear it on the opposite hip that i have my pistol, and rarely even notice it being there. i have not had any issues with it, nor have i had to draw it, and i hope i never will...
