    Very true, thank you for all the advice. I will update in the next week or two when I choose and order.

    Well I decided to give the OD-1 a try. The very first kershaw I bought was an OD-2 so it seemed fitting. Combine that with the gact that KG had a blem for a great price

    I don't feel that that's the attitude given when we say just carry it. I EDC my ZT560 or a Para2 and am just discrete in my use. I don't go snapping the ZT open to cut a string or dig a splinter out. I calmly open it with both hands choke up on the blade and just use the tip. I may be a bit of a selfish **** but other people being timid will not effect me enough to toss more stuff in my pockets.

    It may not be your attitude and being careful as you are is a good thing so please don't think I am lumping everyone who carries what they want into one category, but it most certainly was the attitude of some posters. I live in a knife friendly state but have also seen people get themselves in trouble for not being discrete in a public area. Educating people is a good thing but if I am in a crowded area and don't mind carrying two knives then why not simply do it. There are other advantages to carrying multiple knives as well, having a cheaper one to let someone use rather than trusting them with a three figure zt, as well as having something with a finer tip should you need to be more precise.

    A traditional slipjoint Case or something similar is seen more as a tool than a weapon.

    +1 I was almost going to recommend a peanut or stockman. I've found most people actually like and want to see the few traditionals I have.

In public i use my umnuzaan latley but ive carried a 560, 551, rift, barrage with axis assist, esee 4, etc. and never have had a problem. I do carry a sak from time to time but only because i like it, not because im scared to pull out my big blade. But then again, i live in Texas so people might be a little more understanding. Iv found that most men become very interesed in your knife and soon start hunting for one of thier own. Everyone i work with carries a knife also and women who know you asways ask to borrow your knife.
    yeah here in Texas it's odd if you don't have a knife. I've not really had any bad reactions to any of my large folders, ZT561, 551, 350, 301 have all been used in public. But I use em and put em away, don't really play with them unless at home.

    Yay! I'm smart!

    It depends on where in Texas you live. I live in a medium sized border town with a heavy Border Patrol presence. Thus, we have more law enforcement types, per capita, than a large city might. That, coupled with the usual hunters, farmers, ranchers, and oil/natural gas field workers typical to this area, and it adds up to lots of people walking around with knives (and guns). However, when I travel to larger cities, I see far fewer knives clipped to pockets.

    Still, my knife-o-meter really dies down when I travel out of state. We definitely pack more heat in Texas than most other places.

    Although the thumb stud version is not as traditional-looking as the nail nick, I've ripped or bent back my finger nail enough times on a nail nick to recommend the thumb stud without reservation.

    If your talking Kershaw I'm a pretty big fan of the little Chive. Also there's the slightly bigger Scallion as well as the inexpensive but nifty half-ton. While Cheap the half ton has a bright red handle that screams not threatening also you can get the Scallions and Chives in various colors as well. I'm a firm believer in handle color when it comes to sheeple friendly knives. Black is a no go obviously, however the brighter the more acceptable it seems.

    I have never had an issue with even the most skittish/non-knife people when using smaller Kershaw knives. My experience has been that people think they are neat and want to know where to get them, especially women. They love them.
