I like to carry the SOG Q2 baton with me most of the time.

Gives me a decent utility knife plus a flashlight in a small and easy to carry package. Knife mostly just gets used for opening packages but it's definitely nice to have.

Only complaint is that the flashlight doesn't have a push button. It's twist/turn on, twist/turn off and doesn't give you a whole lot of tactile sensation whether it's on or off. A few times it's accidentally turned on in my pocket.

The finish is not super durable. After about 6-12 months you can see it's starting to wear in a number of spots, particularly where the body folds in on itself.

Boker Kalashnikov Automatic, black / black with tanto blade is my EDC. (top)

The FDE stays in my bedside table with my house gun and flashlight.

The grey model went to a friend for a birthday present.

Really great knife for the money … mine's a year old and is carried everyday and has held up very well. Pretty easy to sharpen and holds it's edge. I have lots of blades for working hard, the Boker is just carried for backup self defense.

Benchmade AutoStryker 9100SBK that I’ve been carrying daily for quite a few years.

Good automatic knife, but I will never send another dime of my money to Benchmade in the future.

Might I ask why?

I had a Benchmade knife accidentally sent to my home by SmokyMountainKnifeWorks when I purchased an optic from them. I ended up returning it to the sender but not before playing around with it just a little bit. Seemed high quality and the temptation to keep it was running mighty high. The price was high enough on it that I didn't think they'd accept, "oh yeah? I never saw that in my mailbox'" as an answer.

That is my only experience with benchmade products.

Please tell me why I should/should not purchase a benchmade knife in the future.

I get it. As I remember Bench Made volunteered to let a local police department use their shop and even helped them destroy a large number of firearms. These were confiscated guns from arrests. It was also said that some were stolen guns that weren't returned to the original owners.

There were videos showing BM employees cutting up shotguns and rifles. BM seemed very proud of themselves for their part in this "public service"... many knife buyers didn't see it that way. My one and only BM now rides on a shelf and I carry a Boker or TOPS.
