    Help Me Find My Perfect EDC Knife

    I currently EDC an ESEE 3-MIL CP. It's the closest I've been able to find to what I want, but there's room for improvement. Here's my wish list (in no particular order):

    1. Overall length: 7.5"-8.3"
    2. Blade length: 3.3"-4"
    3. Blade thickness: 1/8"-3/16"
    4. Blade type: Drop-point or spear point with sharpened swedge (preferred) or dagger (symmetrical blade cross-section) WITH NO CHOIL (and preferably not even a notch between the blade and ricasso)
    5. Blade material: Stainless steel (e.g., 440C, 154CM, VG10) BUT I will accept 1095 IF ALL OTHER SPECIFICATIONS ARE SATISFIED
    6. Handle: Micarta (preferred) or G10 scales, fastened with SS torx screws
    7. Glass breaker pommel (preferred)
    8. Substantial protrusion or guard between index finger and blade WITH MINIMAL DISTANCE BETWEEN THE TWO (The Benchamde Nim Cub II is an excellent example)
    9. Quality construction
    10. An excellent polymer sheath (Kydex, Concealex, etc.) suitable for pocket carry with removable clip and independent retention (any straps must be removable)
    11. I'm willing to pay $150

    Thanks for the help.

    Yeah, a custom is probably the only way. I do have a Justin King creation that's just a tad big (my fault). I may go that route again, but I was hoping I might be able to find a production knife and get two do the price of a single custom.
