Hi Overland Bound Members....I picked up a new knife a few months back and wanted to share my thoughts on it. First, like many of you...I have many knifes and buy them often for all kinds of things and every one of my vehicles has at least one knife tucked away in it.

I bought the Gerber Bear Brylls folding sheath knife at REI. I was looking for an all around pocket knife. I found this knife to be well balanced and I love the way the knife handles feel in my hand! Some of features include dual thumbstud, lockback, full fine edge blade (great for cutting apples), a nice textured rubber grip, and sturdy sheath. The blade is very, very sharp…I was testing the blade out and cut myself with out realizing it. It also came with handy "priorities of survival pocket guide". The knife at $38 bucks is a very good buy.

Oooh blades. The ones I carry the most are my Benchmade Griptilian Tanto, 557 and 553. I also kinda like my cheap CRKT, which clips nicely to the front driver seat base on my LR4. (You could say its my LR4s daily carry)

Nice thread. I will follow this. Maybe I get a good hint for the one I like to buy in the future.

I have 2 of these that have had the crap beat out of them, been used as pry bars and screw drivers countless times. Still works great.

My (late) Father was a small time gun dealer, and he turned me on to SOG knives and multi-tools over 2 decades ago. I'm never without a Flash 2 assisted open knife and SOME sort of SOG multi-tool now. They've gotten me out of too many jams.

Ignore the shameless cd (available @ iTunes and Google Play) plug........................

I love knives and have probably 100 plus. It is hard for me to pass them up far too often. I don't go for real expense but not bottom of the barrel either. There are some nice name brand ones tucked away, but generally I carry something that if lost or left or if I think someone needs it more than I - is not a great loss. About half my friends carry a knife I gave them at some point. I rotate through several daily carry's but have been carrying either a buck or gerber lately. One of these models mostly...

Gerber Paraframe


Buck Redpoint - love this and my wife actually picked it out since it locks closed and open and she feels better with the kids around


Buck - Parallex



With deer season opening tomorrow, I just got the ole Schade back out to hopefully gut another few this year, but my buddy said when he comes down he bought me one of these Real Avid Viscera which I kow nothing about, but it is nice he bought for me so i will give it a whirl.

Schade fixed

This was a pre deployment gift from my uncle bill in 2010

Had it on my IOTV/Plate Carrier the whole time.

Now it lives under my right side sustainment pouch on my Molle ruck.

Hands down... toughest SOB ive ever owned.

To war or to camp, this is my favorite.

I'll have to post pictures when I get them, but just bought an ESEE 4 and an ESEE Zancudo. I've also got a knockoff SOG my brother gave me that's worked pretty well. As for multitools I've got a Gerber that I keep in the Jeep, and two others that the brand is escaping me right now. I keep one in my tackle box and the other at home.
