I would assume most folks here carry the 1911 platform as their CCW and I would also assume that some if not most of us carry a folding knife as well. I am curious as to what type everybody carries? Do we share the same taste in knives as well?


Here are the two I carry, I switch it up but I prefer the Nomad (the shorter one) and carry it most of the time:

Al Mar Nomad & Al Mar Falcon

Next purchase will be an Al Mar Shrike. Not sure if Al Mar is the best knife around but mine have been great and they fit my needs very well.

What are you guys carrying?

Yeah those Victorinox knives are awesome. I bought one at the PX on Okinawa back in 1988 and still have it, I use that thing at least 2-3 months for odd jobs. :)

Great feedback so far everyone :) Nice info indeed.....

I carry the Cold Steel Recon1 in the tanto profile or the spear point. They are a good, stout knifes that I won't cry if I loose it. I also like the Cold Steel Carbon V knives. Too bad that their U.S. supplier went out of business.

The folder I've been using is a S.O.G. Trident and I like it just fine, but I have to say I'm turning more into a fixed blade fan as an EDC. There's just a higher confidence level with a fixed blade, I like the durable sturdy feel better. I've been using a little RAT/ESEE Izula lately, and I love that little blade. Very well made, lifetime no questions asked replacement warranty and fairly priced. Now my folders are gathering dust and the Izula is getting carried the most.

I usually carry a Glock, but I tote a 1911 fairly frequently.

I bought that Eye Brand in '97, and I made the sheath for it in '99. Worn it almost everyday since.

I bought the little Case in '02 and made the sheath for it shortly after that.

I carry everything in pairs. Two guns, two blades, etc.

Right now I am currently carrying a Kershaw Leek, and a Kershaw Skyline. I also always have a Leatherman Wave multi-tool on my belt that resides right behind my spare 1911 magazine.

It is a lot, but the weight does not bother anything and it works for me!

I usually use the top edge of the drivers side window of my truck, or the edge of the glass top on my desk at work. After that, I'll use my boot, right on the top of my foot to give it a sclapel-sharp shine. :supergrin:

If they get real dull, I'll grind on 'em with an aluminum oxide Norton. I have a fine ceramic, made by Spyderco, but I rarely use it.

Why do you assume most people here carry 1911's ?
Their great guns, accurate and they look good, but their too heavy, low capacity, high-maintenance, and unreliable compared to Glocks.
Most Law Enforcement like Cops & FBI etc. carry Glocks.
So does most of the people on this website.
Why ?
Because they are lightweight, low-maintenance, high capacity, accurate, and ultra-reliable.

I found the M16 several years ago, and the steel is a shade soft so I bought several, and stayed ahead of the curve. Other than that, it's a semi-disposable (25-35$) fast clicking *will* take a razor edge in a hurry and pass for a SD blade in a pinch.

Use it, lose it.. so why carry more than you'll easily give up? No weeping with the M16, and it works 'slick'. Love 'em.

BUT, lately I've been road testing the Kershaw Junkyard Dog II, with the composite D2 blade, and it rilly don't suck for 49$ delivered (for a supposed to be 'blem' but it ain't).

It says something that I bought one, then another, and may yet buy one more if they last long enough.. The steel ISN'T soft, the composite D2 is underpriced at $49 shipped, and I've been hunting an excuse for the 3rd one since the first one.

I still like the M16, but it's not as much knife. Fairly, if the M16 is 30$ the JYD II D2 should be 65$. The scales are Torx & G10, black, it's got a solid 'flipper' and opening it is nearly as fast as every bit as reliable as the CRKT. Very good value, even for a sniveling cheapskate. Excellent value for someone using it daily.

And I sharpen with Arkansas stones, mostly burnishing, Belgian stones, mostly double grit coticules, Japanese synthetic, Japanese natural, Lansky rat tail diamond file for serrations, DMT diamond bench hones for coarse metal removal, ceramic sticks for touching up kitchen knives, Aoto Japanese for 'mudding in' between 1000 grit and 4000 or so (belgian blue) .. and medium grit 'Fox' german stones that allow you to avoid the Aoto and work with a cleaner stone. They cover maybe 2000 to 5000 or 6000, they're hard to find, they work very well with cryo'd stainless at 60RC and carbon steel as well. I grew up with that one, and started chasing one 5 years ago.

Some thousands of dollars later I finally located 2, a 6" and an 8".

I'm set. :)

And I can put an armhair shaving edge on a serving spoon with a chunk of flowerpot. It just ain't elegant. A Norton 1000-4000 grit waterstone, combination, is probably the single benchstone I'd recommend to a budget minded hand sharpener. about 50-60$ and it'll cover 90% of sharpening needs. Higher grits suit skilled sharpeners, for the very most delicate work.. fancy prep and sushi and anything tricky.. not cracking crabs or cutting pineapple..

My daily carry at work is a Kershaw Leek with the composite blade.

I ordered a Leek after playing with a friend's. I didn't get the composite blade, because that's what his was and he said it was prone to rusting. I doubt I'll take very good care of this knife (since it was relatively inexpensive) so I ordered the black one.

Thanks - you have a keen eye. Interesting background on the wood used for the handle on that one. It was taken from the stairway bannister of the infamous (famous?) mansion of Fort Worth oil billionaire T. Cullen Davis, when the home was remodeled in 1977 after a sensational murder which occurred in the home in 1976.

You can read more about the sordid history of the mansion here:

At least one of my Gerber knives is with me at all times.

My Gerber Covert (model 1966) being my favorite. My Gerber combat folder being a close 2nd.

Usually a Leatherman Kick, or whichever one I can find. I lose a lot of stuff nowadays, but it usuaslly turns up somewhere.

Knives are primarily for cutting stuff, not for defense. That said, the materials, design, and workmanship vary widely. A cheap knife will do, but probably won't hold an edge, won't be comfortable for use. I have a fixed buck knife for hunting, an applegate fairbairn (which is my hands down favorite), and a benchmade auto that I carry every day.

The 3 "constants" of GT pictures.

In a knife thread...Okie will post that picture. (I still think you should have won that contest, but I'm biased)

In a dog thread...OJ will post those horses he lives with that sleep on his couch.

In a gun thread...Everyone will end up jealous of BAC.
