first off had an idea for a automatic microtech, but after hearing from other forum members and local laws, im looking at a different knife/brand. what would you say would be the best edc tactical knife some other knives ive been looking at are, benchmade 760, 755bk, crkt m16-14t, strider sng snf, buck 889, id like something usa with a lanyard hole, and a nice blade material. id also like a titanium frame but it really doesn't matter. all info will be greatly appreciated.

The ones you have listed have a wide range of price difference.I would look at the benchmade and spydercos.If money is not an issue,certainly look at the striders.If money is tight,look at the kershaws and columbia rivers.

I think you nailed it.

Money is the key.

No Limit

Chris Reeve Framelock
Strider Framelock
Any other Semi-Production Framelock or even custom Framelock ie; Hinderer - Les George - R.J. Martin
(I have a Reeve Sebenza - A Strider and a Les George)

A Little less Money

anything Spyderco or Benchmade

a bit less money

Kershaw

Bottom of the Money rung

CRK&T

Best Value for the money is probably Kershaw.

I did want to add that I don't believe that there is such a thing as a Tactical Folder in anything but looks.

Carrying a Folding knife for Defensive use is sillier than silly.

I like all my fingers right where they are thank you.

I'd recommend checking out the Zero Tolerance line.

They make some pretty cool looking knives that I find are well built and very functional.

I'm also a benchmade guy, love their stuff.

For less expensive maybe try checking out the Byrd line by spyderco.

I don't understand what you mean by "edc tactical knife".


Do you mean a knife to carry around just in case you need to escape/evade enemy forces in the jungle on the way home from McDonalds?

Do you mean a knife to have with you just in case you get pissed and want to kill someone?

Do you want a knife for normal daily carry tasks but you want it to look cool and be made real sturdy like?

I don't know you. I don't know whether you like things which are sensible and practical. I don't know what tasks you do or don't need a knife for.

Let's see if we can narrow things down. What
blade length and shape do you want? Do you want something lightweight or overbuilt? Do you want a thin handle for easy carrying or a fatter handle for comfort in use? Does it matter how well the blade cuts?


There's a knife out there for every answer you give to these questions. Whatever you want someone out there has you covered.

I agree with the above, I am a big fan of BM, Spyderco and Kershaw and own several of all of those, and I think the best value if money is tight is Kershaw. But the other two make some wonderful knives, some of which I own and some of which I really wish I owned.

Do you know the knife laws in your neck of the woods? Mainly, do you need to consider blade length?

"Tactical" is a bullsh1t word, with worse connotations. You really came to the wrong place if you think you want to be tacti-cool. Don't try to be a ninja, or 007, or GI Joe. Forget the nonsense. Get a knife that frickin Works.

Trust me, for I like big butts and I cannot lie.

Very realistically and honestly stated. Couldn't agree more.

To the OP I'd say. "Tactical" is a word that has in recent years become entirely relative when it comes to knives. What is a tactical knife? My Opinel knife is a great "tactical" knife because it is very lightweight and can be easily carried in my pocket completely hidden from view....

As you can see, it's too easy to get hung up on this conception of "tactical."

I agree when it comes to knife laws. When choosing a knife that is definitely worth thinking about. Another thing too is the more the knife is to be used as a tool first and foremost, and at least looks pretty much like it is a tool the better. In this case I mean tool as opposed to "weapon".
