I'm trying a new knife this week

This is probably the largest overall knife that I've carried as EDC so I'm trying it out. (The one with the light gray scales.)

I was reading a book about "tactical knives" and the writer talked about using larger knives to cut through metal doors and so forth so I got interested in this. I found the large CRKT folding knives and they seemed like some of the largest and most economical tough folding knives so I decided to buy one to try out. I found the all black one on ebay, well used, and bought it. I found the other one in like new condition and bought it too. The black one was pretty cheap and I thought I might actually do some tests with it, hoping that my dad still had some old car sheet metal outside of his body shop. The knife came with some rust spots and little chips on the edge. As an experiment I worked over the edge with a coarse diamond stone and got it pretty sharp. The like new one is in very good shape, I touched it up on my sharpener a bit and I'm carrying it today. It is relatively long and bulky, and heavy, but with the pocket clip I can't even feel that I'm carrying it. Note that in some places this knife would be too large to be legal but in my state it is OK.




And also in my pocket I'm carrying the Leatherman Juice S2, just in case I need to do a little light mechanical work.




And I'm carrying the tiny little Fenix LD01.

Great knife Bill! I think CRKT have some great designs for a good price.
