Every pair of my hunting pants has a Browning Kodiak FDT 3 blade attached, 6 or 8 total. Everyday Cary is some form of Gerber. Cheap and replaceable.

I always have an old Sharp brand( from Kmart I think) model 300 on my hip...love that knife. In the pocket is a Camillus paraframe half serrated Wal Mart $20 knife and a Buck 375 Deuce.Gonna jump on ebay and pick up a couple more Sharp knives, really like that style and feel.

Kershaw 1605 (Clash, Chinese). I really wanted to like the Link (made in USA, aluminum scales), which feels great in my hand, but I can't stand tip up knife clips.

I have a Kershaw Blur (assisted open) with S30V steel. That is one TOUGH knife. Hard to sharpen because the steel is so tough, but it'll hold an edge for-freakin'-ever.

A friend gave me an Emerson CQC-15. It's not assisted opening, but it has a hook on the spine that will catch on your pocket if you tilt the knife the right way and it'll open fully when you withdraw it from your pocket. Hard to explain, but a pretty cool feature. I like both...the Kershaw has a sort of sharp/pointy stud on the blade that tends to scratch/mark stuff as I move around (have to be careful not to catch it on furniture, exterior of vehicles, etc), the Emerson doesn't. The Kershaw is AO, which I like a lot....etc etc.

Both are good, solid knives. The big thing with the Kershaw Blur is to get the S30V option. That raises the cost considerable, but good grief is that a tough blade. And Kershaw backs their stuff. I had the assisted opening stop working....sent it back and they fixed it promptly along with a sharpening too. No cost.

For 25 years I carried a Camillus given to me by my wife. Lost that in a fire recently. Started carrying a Gerber mutlitool instead

I have done several dozen deer, piles of rabbit, geese and dove (smaller piles of those LOL)........with an old blade a bud's dad gave me when I got my first deer. The handle was jacked, but the blade very good (kit of some sort he did).

Looked like a Buck "Kalinga".

Married and poor, I redid it at work. Made the brass guard from a block, using only a file.......and glued the oak floor pcs on for a handle (pockets behind, act as bling rivets). Special adhesive our development engineer had as a sample. Wood and stuff degreased baked out, then glued up.

That was in 1990.
Still going strong. Wish blade was .5" longer, as it'd help the look.

Shot bows with a guy yrs ago, he makes knives now. Bought one of his, Jeff White "Bush 3". Did my deer last yr with it.
Handle a little straighter than I like, usable. Need to have him make me a blade so I can do a stag handle.

If I scrape the cash together, local shop carries Behring made knives. I don't see the old school Sambar hunter listed anymore, but will have the shop get ahold of Behring and see if they'd build me one.

Anyway, here's the Jeff White.[IMG][/IMG]

My EDC was a Benchmade 530 for over a decade. Broke it at work (my fault) so just junked it.
Not gonna burn the manufacturer with warranty for something I did.
Plus it was well used.........got my money's worth.

So now it's just a cheapy CRKT that rides on my jeans. M21 something or other. The safety was awkward and after a few yrs I had enough of that, took it off. Proly 2 months for me to learn to not reach for the safety when opening. Too funny.

Can't find a pic of my clunker redo knife.

Old Timer bear head trapper I've had since 1996. Or Buck 112 Ranger I bought around 2001.
