    Tenbeers, Where Are You?

    I just carry the bare sheath , sash / Southern Style . Retention is minimal , but that's all I normally need for this rig .

    $50-100 general purpose folder. Your pick!

    Cold Steel really has no competition in this price range for a serious working , hard use , survival or SD folder . If you just want a cool looking , fidgety flipper for casual use, there are tons of other brands that will be easier and prettier .

    XL vaquero serrated or Counter Point XL

    Serrated Cold Steel are great for a self defense / fighting knife but are a real PITA to properly sharpen , IMO .

    XL vaquero serrated or Counter Point XL

    This ^^^ ! :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup: Vaquero is much better slasher / slicer but can still stab . Serrated for SD is best . PE if for lots of utility use . Not much fun to sharpen this type SE , IMO .

    Bowie Thickness

    Yes ! Depends on your use . Heavy chopping on hard materials , go thicker . General utility and especially fighting , go thinner . ;):thumbsup:

    AD 20.5 Which blade style?

    As much as I love and admire AD's designs , I'd have trouble paying $150 for this level of materials . I paid $105 plus tax for the Cold Steel AD-10 . Great smooth Tri-ad lock and better quality materials all around . Yes , I understand this is new and smaller scale production ...but I'm...

    Kershaw Leek opened in my pocket and stabbed me.

    As long as they don't open before they hit my foot ! :eek:

    Kershaw Leek opened in my pocket and stabbed me.

    Ideally , you find the sweet spot between absolute safety and usability . A very common complaint for Cold Steel Tri-ad lock folders is the difficulty of opening . This problem tends to ease with normal use / breaking in, but there are also short cuts to weaken the spring . However this...

    Fallkniven A1 Kraton, is it meant to be sticky/tacky?

    I've never had any Fallkniven to compare , but I do have several ~40 yo Cold Steel, Carbon V and San Mai , Kraton handles knives that are still fine . But they never were exposed to harsh solvents or excessive heat .

    Kershaw Leek opened in my pocket and stabbed me.

    Only similar one with safety I've had is the Gryst . With sufficient practice , fast one handed deployment was not a problem . YMMV . However , I do take your point . I'd much prefer a design that does NOT require a safety .

    Kershaw Leek opened in my pocket and stabbed me.

    I'm totally cool with makers taking zero /neutral positions , i.e. not getting involved . I actually much prefer business / corporate entities to NOT become involved politically . But , when they do , very obviously choose a side ...it best be righteous . ;)

    OP did NOT employ the provided safety . HAHAHA , guess you missed that little detail ! That was "the clue" , good Buddy . :p

    Kershaw Leek opened in my pocket and stabbed me.

    Offer some actual proof that this is true when provided safety is used . Or back off !

    Kershaw Leek opened in my pocket and stabbed me.

    Nonsense ! Nothing wrong with the Ken Onion AO's . If it comes with a safety ...use it ! That should be just common sense , IMO . I carried a Blur and a ZT Scavenger for years with zero problems . Neither comes with a safety . BM is overpriced and has many functional and QC problems reported...

    Kershaw Leek opened in my pocket and stabbed me.

    When I used to carry a Gryst , with a similar safety , I always used it . I figure if a knife (or gun ,etc ) comes with a safety , there's probably a reason . Like to prevent gelding yourself . :oops:
