    I like a more substantial knife. I just feel I can depend on it more. That said, my idea of a substantial knife doesn't equate to a "sharpened prybar". I think my Spyderco Endura 4 and Benchmade Griptilian 550HG are substantial-feeling knives, my Cold Steel Code 4 even more so. I seem to stick to knives between 3.5 to 5 ounces, generally-speaking.

    I see no reason to go over 5oz and still get a strong knife. My days of carrying pocket bricks are over.

    I don't notice much difference in carry between a Paramilitary 2 and Pakkawood Endura.

    I like heavier knives I guess. If it's too light, I don't feel safe, for whatever reason.
