Spydie hole?!? On a BENCHMADE?!?

This war shall be worse than Sram v Shimano.

Benchmade looks better. That said, I have a hard time spending $100+ on something I'm going to drop in the dirt and forget somewhere. Bought a couple of Kershaw Skylines of Kershaw Blem Guy for cheap and never looked back

My main beater is a Gerber Flat Iron right now, the Benchmade sits in the MTB bag cause it's fairly light in the grand scheme of things.

Opinel is pretty hype for cheap and dang sharp.

Seems like the Fox is the front runner that's for sure. I need to try one on and see how the fit is.

Like you'll be able to find one for that huge head of yours. You look like an orange on a toothpick!! Head! Move! Now!!

This is where I'm at with most of my blades... I have a couple Kershaw Comebacks that I got off Woot for like $25 for beating up on.

Pro frame for sure

The smith option is so noisy it's silly.

Really kinda hard to beat the value on these dudes. Can find them under $10USD on sale sometimes. The carbon steel version takes on a wicked edge. Lock is surprisingly easy to get use to, and is extremely stout. The patina they get over time is also frankly amazing.

We got a cutter!! I have a Bell Super that I love but I would agree with all the Proframe love too.

I have taken mine on every bike tour I have ever done! Cuts cheese and salami like a boss! I am not a big knife guy so it works for me. I also have and Old Timer I carry around sometimes.

The downside to the Opinel is it’s kinda big and no clip. I have girl pants.

I wear a Super Air. I wore a Super DH before that. Chinbar tucks into my Fanny pack or clips onto backpack. I like it. Haven’t tried the alternatives with a chinbar.

I had a Giro Switchblade. Thing runs hot! The faceplate came unclipped in a bad crash. Wasn’t stoked on that. Guess I’m stoked I still have a face?

Never trust a pocket. Knife always goes in bag.

I've been pretty happy with my TLD Stage. The fit around the ears needs some fine tuning but it's much more vented than the switchblade. That helmet fit my head like a glove, though. Really comfy.

If I'm carrying a bag, I just carry my Leatherman. Its like a knife but way more useful.

I have one with a corkscrew in the handle. Its a nice knife.
