I started carrying a pocket knife (just a $25 Kershaw, nothing fancy) a couple of years ago. It's unbelievably handy in so many situations. I feel naked without it now. I'd feel a lot better about encountering a mountain lion with my knife in hand than I would without.
Kershaw Brawler. Have one that's not super beat to death but has seen some stuff as my work knife and is still going strong. I've seen them for a little cheaper than Amazon. Been swearing by Kershaw since I've gotten it.
word of advice- buy a decent knife. S&W makes good guns, but their knives are shite. maybe you'll like something like this which has decent steel and good build quality. or step up for a high quality benchmade or something. i don't intend offense, just making a small recommendation that would improve your load. how do you like your stylus pro?
I got them all from Amazon (I wanted them quickly, being followed by someone at night will make you realize how defenseless you may truly be). The knife I I’ve had for a while, and it’s held up nicely.
This is what I've been using for the past few months and I've got no complaints.

I was thinking something like this
Is that a decent model?
I've turned a Kershaw Brawler into a butter knife with my hasty, unskilled sharpening attempts. First, I went at it with a cheap stone and then a pull-through when I lost patience with the stone.
I'm not really a hobbyist so I'd really just like something simple and effective to keep my knives sharp. After a bit of searching, it sounds like the Spyderco Sharpmaker fits that bill. From what I've read though, it seems like that it might not be up to the task of fixing an extremely dulled edge. Anyone been able to work some miracles with the Sharpmaker or should I throw a new knife in with the order?

Edit: jk the blade is probably too long.
