    Hubby carries a spyderco for work (fire) and a Case is his pocket knife. The spyder is a clip with a locking blade, cost around $40-50 and the case is a good palming size, cost me closer to $90.

    Altho the fillet knife will remain in the hay shed for now I can continue my search for a pocket knife with a good blade. How times have change. The town I grew up in, no one thought anything of a kid carrying a pocket knife because we were taught to respect them. Now, a school gets shut down and the police are called. Sad, really.

    Gerbers are complete junk, steels made of silly putty. Gerber spends their money marketing to rubes instead of on decent steels.

    Sense this is a horse sight,
    This is the knife I carry in my pocket all day every day, only about 30 bucks, you can't open it one haded but it will take a shaving edge, and the steel isnt to awfully bad. Made in Swizz.
    Its got a few handy tools without being bulky, and lays flat in your pocket.
    Hole punch for tack, the flat blade works perfect for chicago screws, bottle opener for angry orchard cider, can opener for beany weenys

    I still have a Gerber made about 15 years ago that is in great shape. The Gerbers I've bought in the last 5 years last about 2-3 months before the blade gets wobbly. I won't buy from them anymore...but I still carry my old one sometimes.

    Haven't had a blade get wobbly on any of mine but have notice on newer Gerber's and Bucks if your not on -em constantly cleaning they seem like there prone to get rust on em easily. However not to get off knive topic but owen 2 Gerber multipliers w/2 different type plier heads for years and they've been bullet proof. Can't comment on Leatherman's never owend any.

    Bought this Gerber and I'am not promoting them just commenting about 3 months ago and really like it. Gerber Genuine Stag Lockback Pocket Knife 1052 New Handles Clip Blade Folding | eBay
