I carry too much.  I've carried a Gerber E-Z Out like Peg's for many years, and it has served me well.  I thought about retiring it last fall and bought a plain edged Spyderco Endura.  I really like it, but it was a little bigger than I expected.  I decided to carry it as my "just in case" knife and still carry my Gerber for the dirty work.  I've also had a Kershaw chive for several years that I carried when I needed something smaller; now, it rides in my left pocket and gets used for "civilized" tasks.  I also have a Leatherman micra that was given to me a few years ago.  Along with other pocket items, my pockets are full.  When finances allow, I plan to get a Delica and actually retire the Gerber.

Haunt Ebay. You can find sundry benchmade and Sydercos for around $50ish if you're patient.

Thanks for the advice, and I've actually checked out the KYsurplus store on ebay you've posted before.  But I can actually get a new Delica from Botach Tactical for $52.60.

Thanks. At that price I might need a backup.

Sledge 

you are still a  Prick  and had to show off that knife  you know I want one ( very hard to get here in Aust those ones due to laws grr )


as Rob said there are places we can carry with not much of an issue an others that are no no's

my self I have a Swis Army on my key ring ( next to the coopers bottle opener ;) )

also most of the time have a S&W  home land security ( the black on in the other thread I posted )   both are my "Box opener's " for work

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them, disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them. The only thing you can’t do is ignore them

Your thinking of the one I had at Wodonga?
Nah thats another beastie LOL still an auto and looks similar.
That was one of these:
The knife is 4 1/4 inches long, 1 3/8 inches wide and 5/8 inch thick ( 13/16" including pocket clip) closed. It has a 3 1/4" x 1" blade of AUS8 stainless steel, flat ground, with smooth gray bead blasted finish.


I will leave it to you in my will  :P
