Letherman wave on my belt.

This lashed to my PFD and harness



To keep an edge you want high carbon stainless steel. This will get surface rust on it, but the blade stays sharp. Points are bad, and wish this one was more rounded. But it's not horrible. The reason I chose a fixed blade is b/c that's my safety knife. I want to take it out, and use it. Not worry about opening it. And fixed blades are stronger than any folder. Last thing you want is for the locking mechanism to break when you need it the most.

I'm a bit of a knife nut I guess, so rather than buy a cheaper knife expecting to LOSE it, I buy slightly pricier knives expecting to KEEP them! Having said that, I really like marlinspike ropework and fancy knots, but am still learning the basics. In the meantime, I found a very PRACTICAL simple lanyard set-up as posted in the following video.

I plan to use this set-up during an upcoming canoe trip. Take Care!

I'm a pretty big fan of my SOG Flash II. It's got a half-serrated blade, which is cryogenically treated to help it keep a sharp edge longer. It's got a spring-assisted open, so one-handing is a breeze, and a nice, sturdy clip.

My only complaint would be the tiny "safety" switch which can engage in my pocket, but it's not hard to give the clip a squeeze to disengage it.

Oh, and I got it for like, $20 at the hardware store.

Inexpensive knife

cheap knife = bad cutting

I usually have a plain-edged Spyderco Delica in my pocket, so I'll probably just tie that quick lanyard on it and to my belt loop for the trip. As far as 'cheap' knives go, I like Gerber LST's and have a few. They make nice (inexpensive, but nice) gifts too. I re-grind the primary bevel to 30 degrees and put the secondary bevel on with my Spyderco Sharpmaker. You can make them 'scary-sharp' this way, and then they're a breeze to touch up on the SM in the future.

Lost knife

Good post

You lost 2 knifes in ten years and you are worried about cost.

Show me a $1 model then
