My 2 grand sons and a great grandson were here for Christmas.. Decided they each needed a knife. I had 2 Case stockman, and 1 other brand which the name escapes me.

Decided they should all have a carry knife so I gave them each one.

I have a small Western 6504 whittler I have carried for many years. It takes a good edge and is just the right size for a pocket..

I stopped carrying, modifying, and buying benchmade when I found out they were anti gun.

My pocket knives are mostly SOG, Benchmade, Buck, and Spyderco.

When hunting, I carry a bigger pocket knife, but for every day carry it is an orange Spyderco Dragonfly.... the smallest knife that is big enough to hold.

Son bought me a Buck 112 for Christmas, even spent the extra money to have my initials put on. Nice son.. He likes the Kersaw Onions, thinking of one of those as well.

Spyderco Delicia for me most of the time. If needing something slightly larger than the PM2.

I only carry a Benchmade Warren Osborne design mini-barrage with a S30V blade. My daughter and I shared deer camp with Warren on multiple occasions and he was a true treasure. His knife design is still my favorite and I remember him fondly every time I use it.

Try a fixed blade carried in a horizontal aka scout sheath. If you don't need a fashionable handle and leather sheath, Spyderco knives with the kydex holster and G-clip are very handy. Benchmade has a little model with leather sheath and S30V blade. CRKT has one that is fairly economical. You probably already have a fixed blade you could get a sheath made for.

Your thoughts, please on what's out there.

Any knife as long as as it has a good Lockblade ,1.5 - 2 inch blade has a blade that is easy to sharpen on a stone in a few minutes and is Lightweight for carry .

I've had the Protech TR3 for years and it has been flawless.

A tad big for most jeans pockets, but I wear carpenters or bibs and carry this in the ruler pocket. Bought it at Presley's Outdoors in Bartonville, Illinois in April of 2010 while I was working an outage at Powerton Station in Pekin.

As near to perfection in a folding knife as I have found. Mine has been used hard, put up wet, and still looks pretty much like new. The 154CM blade is harder than Chinese arithmetic, and requires some effort to sharpen. But, OTOH, I have few knives that hold an edge as well either. I cut anything and everything with it and sharpen it yearly, or so.
When I first bought this blade I thought the grips looked maybe a bit uncomfortable. I was wrong. Within a day of acquiring this knife it had become a part of me. As natural and easy to use as can be without being attached by blood and bone.

If you must have something smaller they make it in a Mini-Barrage. I have no experience with this model, but it looks sized to actually fit a pants pocket.




I have both the Full Size and the Mini Barrage. Have carried them for many years.....great knives!



Also carry the Boker Kwaiken Aoutmatic.....sharp blade!

Froggy, I've had the full size for a few years. Nice knife but never got too excited about it.
Many thanks for sharing.

They are a nice size for an EDC, hold a good edge - probably the best non-obtrusive EDC available - IMO

After losing my second Benchmade and loving its unique easy open build I looked for an American made piece for maybe a bit less $$$

I bought two different model Kershaw and love the Scallion best. Smallish size makes it ride in the pocket nicely even when seated. Keeps an edge and is much easier to sharpen than the BM.

My Daughter and son in law recently bought me a Buck 110 auto for my birthday.

Was packing a smaller Benchmade auto in a belt sheath, but decided if I was going to pack in a sheath, I may as well pack a little bigger knife.

Am VERY pleased with my Buck 110 Auto.

I have a Microtech Brend2 and have tried to like it but it has too many flaws. Handle has too many edges, action has less power than I like, and the blade is the toughest to sharpen of all my knives due to the geometry. https://www.pvk.vegas/Protech-Brend-2-Small-Automatic-Knife-p/1pt-1206c.htm
