Well I carry a leatherman wave. The blade is definetly not as nice or as big but it does lock. Since the wave is a multitool it has a saw, drivers, wire cutter and something really invaluable when a customer won't pay....

I get the most use from a miniature Swiss Army knife.

Carry a Buck 112 on my belt for over 30 years

use it for everything

found it's best to keep it a little dull , it strips wire a little better and opens wire keepers better that way

 

the buck will not last forever , after about 7 years the brass the holds the blade snaps , then the knife must be replaced

but no matter , i love the old bucks and will carry a good old USA made Buck for the rest of my life

This is the first ceramic blade knife I've ever had, and, wow, this thing is super sharp. You have to be careful with the blade because it is more fragile then steel but it makes up for it with being sharper and  keeping an edge much longer. With my steel knives I would sharpen them after 2 to 3 months but ceramics can go almost a year without needing sharpening.

Many of their knives are manufactured in the USA, but they also have serveral that are made in China.

Here's a list.

boy , you don't know me

 

first i never buy new , except for food, clothes and toilet paper .

cheep i am , i squeak when i walk

 

I like the bucks made from 1973 -1978 ( my grandpa gave me my first in 1974 )

none of these bucks where ever made in China

 

I can count the made in China stuff around me real easy

because i go way out of my way to buy only stuff made in North America

 

I put my money where my mouth is , i just paid 130.00 to have a pair of boots repaired and resoled , just to keep the money going round in my home town ..........not in some China town

It is nice to support your home area, but I'm also a firm believer in the invisible hand of the free market. If there's a company that makes a good product, I don't mind supporting them. Competition is the great equalizer, it helps keep prices down and quality up.

How do you sharpen a ceramic blade?

 

I have a Kline Tools Barlow, old school electrician tool, made in USA.

 

A big "right on" to Cactus Bob for keeping money in the local economy.

You use a diamond coated stone, you can find them pretty easily.

I"ve carried a Spyderco Co-Pilot for about 13 years, use it as a money clip when it's not needed for cutting something.

 

Pre 9/11 is was legal to carry on an airplane.

I carry a Swiss Army Electrician knife.It has been a great all round knife.It doesn't have many features , just the basic stuff but that is all I need.Great knife for the money.I guess if I did have a complaint ,it would be the weight.
