Very true, thank you for all the advice. I will update in the next week or two when I choose and order.
I don't really subscribe to the "tough luck i'm going to do what I want" attitude. .
Sticktodrum is a intelligent fellow. I carry my Case Butterbean everywhere and not one box or envelope has stood up to its wrath. If cutting every day items is the mission of your EDC a good traditional folder slippie is your knife.
This topic all depends on the circles you run with. I can understand not wanting to worry other parents and suff. But, if i have 5 friends over at my place you can pretty much assume there are 5 or 6 guns and up 10 knives in the room. No safer place in town for your kids to be than at my house at that time. 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.
+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.
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.
