YOU! YES YOU RIGHT THERE. THIS THING WILL SAVE YOUR LIFE ONE DAY. BUY IT!
cool stuff that you don't really need thread.
That thing is too flimsy to cut the fucking sweater the nigger robbing you is wearing, assuming he gives you the 30 seconds it takes to fold it into a proper blade. If you're gonna carry a knife for self defense (retarded) get an emerson, or even kershaw emerson if you're a poorfag and don't have a big allowance, as those open faster than literally anything other than a fixed blade.
What gives you the idea it could cut anything? The blade steel is fucking cheap ass 420 stainless that hasn't even been properly heat treated. You'd be better off with the average serrated butter knife in a survival situation.
Alright I'll take some of it back, everydaycommentary who's a pretty trusted reviewer said it wasn't TERRIBLE, just a little bit silly and will be outperformed by most other 20 dollar pocket knives, but at least the design is unique. I get a bit jaded because I collect knives in the $100-$300 Range, so cheap things like this are easy to mock and look over.
Uh the inventor of one handed opening knives is benchmade.
My favorite 510..
Next is a butterfly also owned by benchmade but it requires some skill.
Oh lord it's $70? I re-take it back, you should never get a knife in 420 Stainless steal, I can reccomend about 4 knives off the top of my head that are VASTLY superior in the $70 range. It's passable as a $20-40 knife but if you are really curious you can get a shitton more bang for your buck with like a Spyderco Delica, a Cold Steel Lawman, a Benchmade mini griptillion or pretty much any Kershaw.
OH SHIT I HAD THIS
FUCK IT SO HARD
I FORGOT TO TAKE IT OUT OF MY FUCKING WALLET WHEN I TRAVELED BY PLANE
THAT FUCKING KNIFE IS A CURSE. IT LOOKS COOL BUT TRUST ME IT'S GOING TO FUCK YOU OVER SO FUCKING HARD.
YES I'M MAD.
Airport security catched me. They detected it somehow. When i realized what i had in my wallet i took it out and he was baffled. They went back and discussed my case. Nothing happened tho, they saw it was not on purpose and i guess they could understand how you would forget such a thing in your wallet. It could've ended way worse and that's when i realized carrying a (forgettable) knife everywhere you go is fucking retarded.
Cell phone signal jammer.expensive as shit but funny as hell if you're into following people around WalMart while they're on the phone and shutting down their conversations.
Well I personally carry a Ver Steeg Imp which is unique in the fact that it's a pocket sized fixed blade, but they are custom made and the maker isn't producing them anymore (Used to be $90, recently had to pay him $160 for a new one but it was worth it because I like the design so much) Depending on your state, you may be able to get a lightning OTF for like $30 on sale which is a fun little switchblade to play with, a Kershaw Emerson which opens as you pull it out of your pocket, making it much faster than any benchmade, balison, or even auto knife, or you could get something like a CRKT folding Razel on amazon for like $40 which has a unique blade shape that I got a lot of utility out of when I was in high school doing a lot of engineering classes.
Attached is a pic of my Imp, and a review can be found here: http://www.everydaycommentary.com/2015/02/ver-steeg-blades-imp-review.html
(Everydaycommentary is my personal favorite knife reviewer, look to him if you're ever curious about a blade. Also check out Bladereviews.)
reminds me of etlines knives, pic related
I got one of those into my countries high court multiple times. Only realized afterwards though. Had it in my wallet and the dipshits search you your bag and everything else but you put your phone and wallet in a bucket and they just carry it past the scanning machine
Bummer it looks like they use a cheap acid burn for their damascus instead of using high quality steel. They seem like a pretty standard chinese made knife company trying to pretend they are customs by using hot buzzwords and materials that seem super high end but are actually either cheap or shitty imitations.

And that's why you never take knives to the airport.
Well that's why I like it, I work with a lot of kids and parents and got tired of pulling out a knife that made everyone think I was about to go on a killing spree. I pull that little guy out and I get all the utility of having a knife on me but instead of overreactions, people are like "Neat, how cute"
Knives for me are a tool with which you cut things, not some sort of badass weapon meant for getting into knife fights on the street with. What's neat about the imp is that it's so sturdy that I've even used it to baton so it makes a shockingly decent survival knife for how little space it takes up.
What about that post made you so buttblastedly mad? Are you the retard with the benchmade trying to act like it's a faster deployment method or something from earlier?
because you are objectively wrong if you are. The benchmade you need to pull out of your pocket, then swing open. Any Emerson designed knife opens AS you pull it out of your pocket, making it a significantly faster deployment method. If you are mad about something else, please tell me so I can educate you on why you're wrong.
Things i want but don't need... exepct when sandniggers come into my home
I was given one of these by a friend. I swear for one of the flimsiest pieces of shit I've ever seen, it's pretty goddamned sharp. I usually use it for mail and to cut off fraying cloth lol
You'll never educate ME on any topic.
That knife remains the number one choice of military and LEOs. While it does not open as it leaves your pocket? It opens with a vary natural wrist flicking motion. The one the Emersons often snag on the pocket and cut the owner. A knife should open when you want it to not just because you pull it from its concealment. Not even Switchblades or NATO push buttons are considered faster than that bench made.
Carry what you wish, but don't act like an arrogant dick about it.
If you're going to carry a knife, carry a useful knife.
Pic related is my edc, useful with style
Had this happen to me loads of times with
> Flick knife
> Pocket knife
> retractable blade
> Toe nail clippers, not the scissors, the dull ones that you clip open a press down, the said the built in nail file came to a point and therefore, deadly!
They just get confiscated and stolen by airport staff, the nail clippers where $30.
None of this bothers be, because the one time I went through security with a hand gun, set off the metal detector, got patted down, and then they didn't see they let me carry on,, this was post 911.
Airport security is the biggest BS ever, they slow down passengers for ages over BS they seldom stop, they confiscate tons of crap you would never use to take over a plane
> Seen a 9000 year old granny have her dull as a spoon knitting needle taken off, something you could jab into your eye and still be fine.
Yet the minimum wage immigrant that cleans the toilets or works in the outside team will put a bomb or a gun on the plane for $10,000. This is, capitalism fear and uselessness to get more money.
If you cut yourself opening an emerson you are a retarded child and should not be playing with knives. (see, the average military member)
Additionally it's comically easy to pull an emerson out of your pocket without opening it and then use the spyderhole or thumbdisk to easily flick it open.
While i do agree with you (Especially the social economic parts) the point i was trying to make is how dangerous it could be to have a creditcard knife with you at all times in your wallet. You never remember that you even have it until you're in a situation where you can't have one.
WHAT IS THIS?!?!?!?! A CREDIT CARD KNIFE FOR ANTS?!?!?!
Have you been eating the crayons again tyrone?
You can sharpen any piece of metal to cut through something, it's just that better steel holds it's edge for longer.
Also it's a small blade but it's better than your fucking car key isn't it (top tip, you're less likely to rob someone who's trying to slash your eyes out, muggers go for easy quiet targets unless they're as autistic as you)
>this reminds me of that image of some 8 yo fat kid who spread out 3 dollars on a table and took a selfie flashing gang signs
Why do i never read these kinds of sentences outside of 4chan.
If your EDC is more than this you're a fucking faggot who thinks they're cool because they "have a pocket knife wooooh!!!!!"
>shut up fag that's a boxcutter!!!
You can use each place twice (both sides of it) and buy 100 blades for $10
the hardest thing about vapeing is telling your parents your gay
Haha I saw that meme joke on Facebook too!
Looks bulky as shit and even more retarded to carry with you unless you are a carpenter or plumber, and let's not kid ourselves, you're unemployed.
Completely situation dependent but it's a fair point. Most mugging situations can be avoided with common sense and situational awareness. The same goes for taking the time to get one of these out.
Yeah and all of them are far too clunky to pocket carry. I have a job that requires me to wear a suit, I can't carry around a 3/4 of an inch thick craftsman utility blade in silk dress pants. There's a world outside of your blue collar trailer trash lifestyle bro.
Benchmade Barrage is spring assist, used to have the 580-1 with m390 steel, it was pretty nice but springs even on higher end knives are prone to breaking, and the manual action is smooth enough that a spring is kinda overkill.
Oh god how did you find a worse knife than the dude you're responding to.
>Get a real knife
>Posts 10 dollar chinese made mall ninja piece of shit
for the record i own like 5 of the knifes that op is refering to, but the chinese version they were dirt cheap and useless... but my question any1 got any recommendations for a non spring loaded EDC folding knife of decent quality and price, cant use spring loaded coz customs in my country would seize it and charge me....
What the fuck are you talking about I can't look online for a utility knife? I used to work retail, I've seen dozens including the supposedly smallest and most convenient folding utility knives, the Gerber EAB or whatever, and even that is far bulkier than anything I carry like the Spyderco Dragonfly
Spyderco Delica is probably the best bang for your buck if you want mid-size though to be totally honest, I own a Dragonfly in ZDP-189 and have never had to sharpen it, and haven't found an everyday use task yet that it couldn't overcome. I wouldn't recommend the Dragonfly for survival, but for the box opening use that most pocket knives see, it can't be beat. You can also get the endura and delica with emerson wave openers that are awesome as hell.
I will warn you that for the 80 dollar range most grips come in, the handle material feels kinda cheap and plasticy. The blade is good and it's fun to flip back and forth, but be wary of the handle.
A butterfly knife is NOT for self defense, unless you're trained with a knife, carrying a buttefly knife seems like a good way to get murdered before you can even open your knife.
See that hook? If you pull the knife out at an angle, it catches on your jeans pocket and pulls the blade open in a smooth motion so if you need your blade in a hurry, it's immediately open. It also works great as a bottle opener
Yeah I have carried knives for a decade and never used one in self defense, but it's still fun to feel badass flicking a knife out of your pocket even if it's just to open an amazon box.
Funny how often people at work ask me that, then regularly come and ask to borrow my knife every time they get a package or need help with a ziptie or something. I use it for food prep, opening things, it's one of mankinds oldest tools, not exclusively a weapon.
Now I know it is from a while ago. I posted it in that thread and didn't want to re-pile the knives.
It's original purpose was a stop smoking aid, and there's no shame in theat. The "mouth fedora" comes from people who never smoked, thinking they look cool vaping. They hopped ona bandwagon they didn't understand, not considering vaping looks fucking gay, not cool. Smoking a cig looks cool as fuck, you aren;t gonna replicate that by sucking on a battery with a tube on it.
I'm actually old enough to remember going through airport security, setting off the metal detector, showing them my pocket knife, and then getting waved through as I put my knife back in my pocket.
I have an area 51 alien light. I don't need it but I need it. I've had it since I was about 12, it stays with me.
Hercules Series 532 nm 700 mw Green Portable Laser from Laserglow Technologies. Only $2800 but Muricans cant own it. LOL
About me and not the other anon, I can say that I've fully stopped to smoke old analogic cuts exactly after the first charge. If you really want to stop don't buy an ego, go directly to the battery boxes. Now I smoke in safety (I make my liquids too) no cancerous particles, no bad smells no nicotine. Only the pleasant side of smoking, and you can change the flavor every time you want.
Atm I'm with a self made blend based to ginseng, honey and cherry. Tomorrow I'll use pear and sambuca. Monday who know
pop bought this when he was 19 and i think he was in boot before they put him in nuclear power school when he got it. i carry it for mail opening and other boring shit.
20+ years old, pitted and kinda shitty. Keep it for sentimental reasons.
Because of "Munitions"Laws that our wise leaders in the USA have enacted mmany things produced in the USA can not be exported and some things produced in other countries can not be imported.
In this case Laserglow of Canada can not import. How ever they are quite often available on auction sites as used but unopened items for slightly more than the $600 CDN asked by the mfg.
>that would only kill someone if it hit their jugular
There's more than one place you can bleed out from.
Cuts and puncture wounds can also give you openings for punches, kicks, and grappling.
Also, multiple small cuts and punctures add up.
another "redneck contradiction": i don't want no dayum kids. my woman doesn't want em either .i like my motorcycle, truck, guns, and whatnot. fuck sellin that shit to feed a parasite.
This. Anyone who says "their jugular" is a retard. What you want to go for is the carotid artery. The femoral artery in the thigh is also a very bad place to be cut. But like this fag says you can bleed out from a lot of places.
>cool with fags
>cool with weed
>loves da boomsticks
>don't fuckin touch my truck or motorcycle
>Trusts no politician: repub/demo/third party
its not much of a tradition man. i'm kindof an outlier.
my goal is to corrupt my friends children. I'm the guy they call when the boyfriend brings their daughter back an hour late. So i'm pretty certain I can leave a scar or two on some other human's psyche.
I once saw an infomercial for a set of 20 knives. I wish I took some kind of screenshot or something but who the fuck is going to need 20 knives. What kind of industrial kitchen are you running where you need to cut 20 different things with 20 different knives?
Grandpa gave me this one
It's my edc, rate me fags
Lel. There are no new laws.
We can own up to 2500mw Lasers.
Pic related. Is mine.

nope. worse: michibilly.

Religion, or lack thereof aint gotta run your lifestyle man. Ya'll can live a decent life and not freak out every time someone says god bless, but if that fucker says praise allah, deck 'em and run. ... you probably lucked out that the bomb aint gone off quite yet.
so are we. we have a city here that is pretty much chaldean(middle eastern catholics), jew, and muslim. The fuckers changed some city signage and dropped the "welcoming" title because they don't want muslim refugees showin up in their $500-4 mil USD neighborhoods. Seriously that shit made local news.
Fuck the refugees though. go fix your shithole country. if all you decent fuckers stayed and fought/died for it you might make a difference. instead they run from the fuckin problem. and we are expected to just make room for them.
Fuck em, go fix your own stove before you invite yourself over to cook dinner on mine.
DealExtreme used to sell these. I bought one my freshman year in HS and sold it to a guy who was just graduating. Never used it myself, don't know why he wanted it, not going to bother now
lol yall aint got what we got... we took in 163000 last year... and we only got a population of 9 mill... this year gonna be the same.... whole country gone nuts ... peace loving commie hippies in charge and we cant do fuck about it...
its simple really
>we kill the nogunz hippies.
but seriously.. you wanna make a change? get into politics and do something about it. when the corporate interests attempt to buy you tell em to get fucked. but they you're a politician by then.. so no trusting you.
haha ... no we got guns... but politics.... doesnt help got 8 parties in sweden...7 of them want more refugees... and u join the 8th ur branded a nazi and ur friends and job disappears...
welp to be a hypocrit, time to move. when the majority in power are voting it in, then you gotta move where there's voting goin in the direction you agree with.
but if people get all SHTF fuckin stick it out and do something about it.
redneck here: protip go to a guns/knives store: cabelas/basspro, maybe gander mountain if you are in the U.S.
>protip don't be a wigger/nigger and say nigga to the guys working there.
Check out knife cases for the pocket knives sometimes you cand find really nice handles on those pocket knives.
fuck the stores go to the local gunshow/swap meets and pay a local who makes 'em your cash.
