re: I need a new pocket knife
Ontario rat ii in d2 steel is nice and priced right

ETA: I hate this board sometimes. I just ordered each of my nephews a Rat II in Aus-8 and myself another Rat II in D2 since I lost my first one.

How "high end" is high end to you?

Spyderco Delica 4 is a LOT of knife for the money (and it isn't cheap).

Benchmade Griptilian isn't a bad choice.

ZT, Kershaw, Ontario, about 20 companies make great knives, just depending on what you want.

It is a Golden Age of pocketknife ownership. You can get a decent knife at about every $5 step above $20 (not joking), all the way up to the mid/upper $100s before it really starts to get to be about spending money just to spend money.

How high end are you talking about?!
65-120$ kershaw or spydercos.
120-200$ bench made or zero tolerance
Or just go all out and get a Chris reeve inkosi drop point for about tree fiddy. That will probably be my next one, currently carrying a ZT assisted opening.

I usually carry the regular. Been wanting an excuse for getting the mini. The regular size is admittedly overkill for most days.

They aren't the value they used to be. $90 - $110 for a base model and they are pretty flimsy when stacked against other options in that price range. The Axis-lock is the only saving grace, it is the best EDC lock system with the SOG Arc lock in close second. I put both my Griptilians in AWT scales, really improves the feel of the knives but it does put them close to $200 all in.

I got a Klein tools knife that’s sharp as hell, easy to sharpen and keeps an edge. Even killed and cleaned a small wild hog with it. Couldn’t ask for more from a pocket knife.

re: I need a new pocket knife
I've never understood the pocketknife $$$$

I carry a Buck 379 that is $18....and I find that a bit much. I sharpen it when it needs it, maybe twice a year at max.

I doubt I've ever carried one that was more than $30.

Then again, I have a skinning, bone, and several filets. I do use that 379 for small game because it is always on me. I don't need the high dollar steel in these new blades, though they are impressive.

Because I can and I want to?

I like having a good knife. I have lost very few knives in my life so that isn’t a concern for me.

I'm old school when it comes to blades. I went on ebay and bought a new old stock Gerber from the 80s. Great quality and not a bad price.

Civivi makes a really good knife for the price. Look up some youtube reviews.

I carry a Benchmade 8551 BK Mediator or a 940 Osborne. The Osborne has been put through the ringer. I just got the 8551 so far I love it as well. Can't Go wrong with a Benchmade.
