Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I'm trying to decide between two S30V knives. Folders. I selected them because they are Lock Backs. One is a Gerber Blade Premium blade (I like gut hooks as they have many uses but still deciding.) but the hole in the blade puts me off. Or a Buck 110 in S30V with its clip point and blade profile, that would make a very nice EDC blade and a good mandatory carry for me on wilderness outings. I'm pretty old school when it comes to my folders, pretty much ignorant on what more moderately priced S30V steel knives. I got few Gerbers in 154CM steel, most with gut hooks but one with a drop point. And a few other 420 HC Gerber's and Bucks. Most ride with a few of my bigger blades in and such I got "preposition-ed" in places I go do things. One set of knives had to be resharpened recently, some relative grabbed it from that place and used them much, a note said the knives were a literal life saver. Well that's why I put them there mostly for me and friends and family. Atleast I got them back. The knife will be used pretty much, and hunting and fishing and such. And EDC probably. If any one has any other suggestions I'd like to hear. I am only looking at Lock Backs, the only knife locking mechanism that never failed me. Others...amazing I still have all my fingers. Edicused some minor stuff that got not typed.
