    Same here..
    My daily is a Crawford Kasper. The blade is 3.75"; other aids say over 3.8" and at the spine. 16" thick; the steel is 8Cr14MoV with a corrosion resistant coating.

    It is a side lock with an interesting locking device that is CRKT's patented LAWKS or a little lever that locks the side lock. It is pretty close to a fixed blade. I do prefer a fixed blade, but for a folder; it is pretty close.
    I don't use the thumb stud. Instead, I adjust the two tensioning screws and it opens fast with a simple flip of the wrist.
    I've owned it for well over a decade or so or back when it cost close to $50. Its weakness is the screws that hold the clip on. As they get loose, a dot of Loctite cured that.

    Still carrying the same knife and it's still sharp enough to shave with. No rust and still works great. 9/19/2020

    My favorite is the CRK&T Crawford Kasper with the 3.75" blade. As I have big hands, the 3.75" works well for me. Those with smaller hands would find the 3.5" fits better.

    In the picture there a little circle that when pushed locks or blocks the liner side lock. the blade using the LAWKS system; as a result, it is almost a fixed blade.
    My scales are black and the blade is dulled.
    Although I prefer a fixed blade because it is longer and legal in Georgia, the CRTKT is pretty close.

    The link explains LAWKS system quite well.
    If sharpened correctly, mine has no problems with garden hose or rope. OTOH, it is a weapon and not a tool.

    After years of use, the screws retaining the clip used to come loose until I used red Lock-Tite. The ball bearings can be adjusted for a flip type fast opening. Get that the way you want it; then, use the thread locker

    As it is discontinued it can be found inexpensively.

    Exodus Knife and Tool Adventurecraft, rigged for a neck knife. Always.

    Benchmade SOCP, on the bag if Im CC'ing in the bag, IWB if I'm CC'ing appendix. Sometimes I dont want to tote the slingbag.

    Not the best idea, on the bag, but its pretty much invisible, and sometimes, I'll be honest at the risk of catching some flak, its nice to be able to have it all in the bag, like at the library. I'd hate to print, and get called out, or worse kicked out.

    While I carry a heavy duty Schrade folding knife in my work bag, I ALWAYS have a simple Victorinox pocket knife on my person.

    I like my Seber knife. It has a button that locks the blade in any position I need it locked into so I can use it at any angle.
