What is your favorite auto knife? I have a bech made AFO 2 auto. It is a solid strong knife, but I don't like the tanto blade on it. If I did decide to replace it, what would you suggest? Thanks!

My EDC blade is a Benchmade 5000SBK Presidio. For church and dress occasions, I carry a Benchmade Pardue 3550SBK. I'm considering switching to the new manual Benchmade 755MPR.

One of these knives are on me, along with a Glock 27 and/or Diamondback 380, all day and everyday.

Since they are illegal here in MI.
I may or may not have several cheap ones to play with.
My favorite is a Frank Beltrame stiletto

They are illegal in WA, but I think special permissions may be possible. I'd like to make some one day.

That LUDT sounds like a good choice, if you want something tough. Protech also makes very nice autos- the TR-3 is a no-nonsense model. The Protech Brend 2 might also work, if you want something a little flashier.

Those we can have, though I did have one confiscated by a state trooper when they first became all the rage.

I have several of them now that I like quite a bit.

Had one and sold it the day after I held a Microtech. There really is no comparison. The Infidel is just lacking in so many departments when put next to almost ANY Microtech Now EDC blade is a MercWorx Latalis, best side auto Ive ever had.

Agreed, the Infidel really lacks. Not much imagination in design either. Anyone else remember the old "NATO Military" flea market cheapies? Quite similar.

My favorite auto is a Benchmade Auto Benchmite. It is just about perfect for anything I need to do with a knife. I carry it for dress and Church on Sunday, etc. For everyday use I carry my Benchmade Auto Presidio.

My wife gave me a BM 6150 Auto mini-Rukus, to go with my 610 & 615, for Christmas. Insure the lock is off - then deploying it - is slower than the 615/610! I have one auto - that's enough. AO knives - like my 790 Subrosa and ZT-0301 - are fast enough for me, but then, a knife is a sharp tool to me - not a weapon. I have something louder to defend myself with.

The mini-infidel looked nice, as did the 3150 Lertch - which my wife carries!

I have the Benchmade 9500SBK Auto Stryker, and LOVE it! It has a tanto blade, but there are other models without. I would highly recommend Benchmade.

I had the BM Auto Stryker and a BM Auto Tanto. A firm grip on the either would prevent the blade from engaging fully. The Stryker had great blade geometry but I eventually sold it. I pretty much destroyed one scale on the Tanto trying to tap it for a pocket clip. I still have the bag of parts but I somehow doubt BM has a spare scale laying about :faint:

The Stryker or auto Stryker are my first choices. I wore a Benchmade Stryker out (blade worn down) over a career!!!
Never failed, always sharp!!!!

If I were to buy an auto it would be a Microtech OTF.

Kershaw SpeedSafe

FWIW:

I have high regard for all of the Kershaw (SpeedSafe opening) folders..

Recently the State of Georgia legalized the possession and carry of automatic knives, and I bought a Benchmade 2550 (Mini-Reflex) on the advice of a friend, and I'm more than pleased with it.

The Mini-Reflex is light, high quality construction, and wickedly sharp.. I'm a lefty and this model is very "lefty friendly"..

This is my first Benchmade knife, and probably my last as I think this little Benchmade 2550 will be all the EDC knife I'll need for a long time.:cool:
