    Good steel and G-10 handles sound nice. I would like to know more about the lock/action before buying it, and personally I'm not a fan of serrated tanto blades but other than that it looks good.

    its personal preference.
    im also not big on serrations.

    this is my daily carry

    im also very picky about how solid the blade feels when opened out.
    for me, it can not have any play in it whatsoever.

    ive got nothing against the tanto blade, i just avoid serrations because they are a pita to maintain (i dont know how to sharpen them correctly.)

    Plus they suck nads for slicing boxes. At least, in my experience.

    I've got a Benchmade Auto Rukus that I carry daily.

    Nice knife.

    For what I use my knives for I haven't come across any scenario where a serrated knife would be more useful than a proper straight edge, it seems like serrations just make half of the blade more or less unusable for most tasks. In terms of the profile I just feel that a standard drop point blade is more versatile for cutting and since I hardly ever need to stab anything I don't need the extra tip strength from a tanto blade.

    Yeah, we just can't carry them concealed. Clip sticking out is a-ok.

    Sad really. I have a permit to carry a loaded gun concealed but an automatic knife? Noooooo way!

    I live in Texas and carry my Benchmade auto all the time. Just don't break the law and you won't get caught with it.

    I just checked out the Gerber yesterday at a store in town. Very solid knife. I didn't feel any play in the lock up and it fired strong. Not as fast as my Benchmade but still a solid knife. I did like the blade lock on the side and as big as it is. Very easy to operate

    The only thing I didn't like about it is the size. Not the length, but the width. I like a slim EDC knife but you make dig it.

    I liked it a lot but wouldn't EDC simply because of the bulk. Wouldn't mind owning one later though

    my most common edc blades are: kershaw scallion and a kershaw blackout (the blackout is serrated)

    figure if i have to cut thru a seat belt the seratted blade might work better, the little scallion gets most of the day to day use though
