    Advice on how to narrow down collection

    Small Folders

    I also carry 3" blade daily. With a basic blade shape. Most people don't give a second look to a knife that looks like a tool. Although some styles are great; if the knife is too tactical it can give the appearance of a weapon. This is especially true at work.

    The practice of loaning knives

    Problem 1 Loaning knives to people that don't know how to use them. Problem 2 If the knife isn't theirs, there has less concern about damage. Problem 3 Most people buy cheap knives. Mostly likely believe it is not a cost issue if they damage the knife. I have also had this issue with tools.

    Bugout or Bailout ??

    I own a Bailout with aluminum scales. I really like it. I would buy a Bug Out if Benchmade put steel liners or aluminum scales on it. Benchmade's concern about weight.....just feels cheap. Not buying after market scales. Never understood the name.......not a knife I would want in a bug out.
