I am thinking of getting this to replace my gerber LST I lost recently. The best price I have found for a black handle, combo edge 556 is at smokesigns...$56 including shipping. http://store.yahoo.com/sarsam/bemiknwithbl1.html They also have the black handle, combo edge 556, with the black coating for a little more but I figure I'm spending enough as it is and I'll never really use the teflon or BT or whatever it is anyways. Anyone know anywhere else with a better price? More importantly is this a good knife? I wanted a sub 3 with some sort of decent clip for my pocket (the loosening up of the plastic clip on the LST is what made me lose it when I was hauling spar pulls and I guess something brushed up against my leg...) and from a decent company. Other choices seemed to fall down to some sort of buck but I figured $20 extra for a real knife... I passed over the mini ambush cause it was made in taiwan, etc...I know its a good knife but I'd jsut rather just get a Blue class benchmade. What do you think?
