    Benchmade knives are badass but they aren't cheap.

    The one I have at the moment was on sale for 180 from like 220. It's a bali-song though.

    I should have my 9050 in a few days :wiggle:

    Everyone has 9050's cause of Rumple4Skin :rofl:

    There are very few areas you could really get away with carrying an Auto knife. You could look into assisted opening knives though if that suits your fancy. Kershaw makes a nice knife :x:

    I carry 2 Griptilians daily. I like the Ritter model in S30V the best tho.

    You carry two? Or you switch between two?

    I carry the grey/black blur and a gerber multi-tool.

    I know someone wh knows someone that had a whole bunch of them. I bought a couple at first and then resold for a small profit then got a few more and did the same.

    I sold nib ones cheaper shipped than you could even find online, and thats not including shipping
    Ill ask and see if hell ever be getting anymore :x:

    I think the msrp is like $230 and you cant find em much cheaper than $160 plus ship online

    i have the griptillian with the ritter design. big blade. i always feel like i'm going to chip it though. it's a pretty shallow flat grind.

    I actually prefer using my balisong. i'm not sold on this s30v material yet.

    I carried my balisong for a couple months, but it never made sense to me carrying a knife like that. Plus it's such a nice knife I really didn't wanna fuck it up since it's one of the nicer ones in my collection.

    Now I have a Kershaw that I beat the fuck out of daily. It was cheap so I don't feel bad giving it a beating.
