Everybody loves a good knife...and to a certain extent...a guys knife says something about who he is...and what he does with it. Many prefer application specific knives instead of general purpose to carry on them as their personal blade. But yet to others an old traditional three blade Buck or Old Timer will suffice. I have MANY knives...but when it comes down to it...I only use 5 out of...oh I don't know...probably an estimated 30 or so assorted knives total. For my personal knife...which I use for general purpose fishing, hunting, work, ect....I definately need a locking blade...it needs a belt clip...so I can hook it into my front right pocket for easy access....and it's even better if it can be opened one handed...and I prefer a Tanto style blade...partially serrated. That knife is a Benchmade Griptillian 5 1/2"... by Mel Pardue Design. It's a little on the large side for a pocketknife...but I'd rather have too much knife than not enough in most cases. It holds a superior edge to any other knives I've owned....and I can't say enough good things about Benchmade and their product. My tacklebox knife is a 3 1/2" CRKT... by Carson Design. It too is partially serrated...and is up for hacking off a piece of hard to cut braid line effortlessly at any given moment. My skinning knife is a Buck Skinner 5" rounded blade. Ihat knife has been in service for 25 years...and has skinned and caped more deer than I really care to remember during that time. My fillet blades are Russell international saltwater knives. One is a 7"...the other a 10". There's one more in the three knife set...a serrated one...but I don't use it for anything other than kitchen duty. They are just the ticket for precisely cutting up a big fish of any species...or merely for the finish work post-electric the fillet knife. Below are some pics of my go to blades. What have you got?
