HI. I'm looking for a new EDC.
size: between Delica&Endura
Tip Up,iwb or pocket, low profile.
Not Spydy ( I have 10 spydys)
fairly smooth handle for iwb,Tough.I'm not a steel junky any good
steel will do.
No autos for me.
If you dont mind the aus8 steel, sog makes some good edc options if assisted opening is good with you. I dont like it, and I prefer more expensive steel, but sogs are really inexpensive for their very good design.
The relatively recent "tactical" MC-12 Mcusta series should be right up your alley. These are the biggest Mcustas to date. I don't have one (I have other Mcustas) but it's probably excellent. This one has a 3-5/8" blade and it's 8" open. Notice that the "M" in the blade has been laser-cut-out. I think it looks wonderful.
Eventually (probably when they'll do a promotion one day) I will end up buying one, or perhaps one of the more expensive MC-12D damascus series variants:
One shouldn't have to apologize for recommending the Cold Steel Voyager. I've used more of that series more than any other knife. It's got a mirror-polished steel blade, an exceptionally strong and lightweight Zytel grip and a strong lock. It feels good in the hand, sharpens easily and is easy to sharpen and maintain. The serrations make sharpening a rare requirement and the blade length and configurations are legion.
Benchmades and Kershaws have excellent reputations, but just out of curiosity, with so many Spydercos, why are you looking for a non-Spyderdo? Just looking for something different? Or are you going to be using it for something else?
Spydercos are great knives,but I really need A blade larger than the delica,native and smaller than the Mil,Police,Endura etc.I always have A Rescue in my side pouch.I think I just need some variation.
Dagon , sweet looking knife, does Mcusta make a less tactical drop point
knife? This knife is for when I'll be working as a tour guide, can't scare them
