Kershaw Clash is a great option, I got one for a friend who serves and he loves it (uses the hell out of it).
This is my go to and easier to carry around everywhere - Amazon: Kershaw Clash Black Serrated Knife
i cant recommend this one enough, its been my edc for 3 years. its stupid durable, and i dont mind getting rough with it since its not super expensive to replace
i actually gave one to my sister for christmas
I carry a knife similar to this one. It's there for opening boxes, cutting zip ties, and other various cutting related tasks. I guess it could be used for self defense, but honestly that is the farthest thing from my mind on a day to day basis.
The only trouble I've ever got in from carrying it was when a bouncer at a bar saw it clipped in my pocket and told me I had to leave it with him while I was there.
A knife is very useful. I'm someone who has to strip wires more than most, so I get that extra utility from the two-sized serrations at the base of one of these
I would carry one all the time if I could stop losing them. Even with the $10 gerber paraframes from walmart, a knife vanishing every few months starts to add up.
I've never gotten in any legal trouble for it.
I live in CO, USA.
Kershaw Black Clash
This knife is literally one of the best knives I've ever owned. It is well made and feels well made. Good plastic on the handle, opens smoothly. I dropped this thing in wet sand and once I blew it off it worked fine. There is ZERO play in the blade and it's the perfect size to be effective and not cumbersome. I really can't sing it's praises enough and for the price you really can't beat it.
i am in love with my kershaw its a little longer than what you specified but its still nice and compact. its also got kershaw's speed safe spring assisted opening so its super easy to open real quick with one finger (and minimal effort). its been my EDC for a few years now and have no complaints about it. im right handed so i cant attest to its left handed usability tho
This is my EDC knife (forgive the link, don't have my phone, on my home puter):
A bit bulky, but flawless after a year of carrying it. Keeps an edge really well.
The Clash would be a great choice, for just under $28 on amazon atm: [link]
If you are going CRKT, I would probably recommend a Hammond Cruiser, this also being a significantly larger knife, though less expensive: [link]
this has been my EDC for ~3 years and i cant recommend it enough
I had in mind this Kershaw 1605CKTST since I recently got myself a similar kershaw and I am very pleased with it.
So I kept shopping around and Buck seems decent but the blade is small at 2 1/2 inches. But that seems like it would perfect for my dad appart from the blade lenght.
Is Knifecenter.com a good place to buy. I Found a Gerber Tanto style that seems to be perfect. Opinions ?
This little guy.
My tranniversery gift to myself. ^_^
I typically stick to benchmade but theyre normally $150+. gerber is a good brand, but if your state allows assisted opening you should go for a Kershaw. I carry a Clash and use it almost every day. Its got a flipper with a torsion bar assist, so be careful of state laws. Its a little heavy, but I like that, feels more solid to me. Excellent knife for the price. my other, more expensive knives that I rotate (or will be, in a few days when some of them get delivered) are the Benchmade Griptilian, the Benchmade North Fork and the Benchmade Barrage(assisted opener).
If you're looking for a cheap, rough work knife, get the Kershaw, but if you're looking for an investment and a really high end, go for a BM.
Correct. It's the Kershaw 1605CKTST Black Clash Folding Serrated SpeedSafe Knife
i dont leave my room without my kershaw. i got really good at locking myself out of the house and my knife turns getting in into a 30 second inconvenience, rather than calling a roommate to come let me in
