Spyderco Delica 4 with Emerson Opener

The round hole in Spyderco folding knives allows fast one hand opening.

The Emerson opening feature is a hook curving out the top of the knife's blade. When removing the knife from a front pocket it catches the pocket's edge quickly opening the knife blade ready to use. The knife can also be taken out of the pocket without engaging the opening feature by pulling it straight up and out with your fingers on top of the closed blade.


I love this knife. My daily carry has been a serrated Spyderco Delica for more than 20 years.

I carry an Opinel Ebauche No. 8 Olivewood handle. I bought one and removed the INOX stainless blade to trade off to a carbon blade because I wanted to fiddle around with a vinegar-forced patina on it. I only smoothed out the edges and the turning ridges because I need the larger handle to be able to use it with major arthritis issues. "What I Use" orange oil "finish." The stainless blade on an Ebauche beechwood switchout went to my son-in-law along with an Opinel mushroomer's knife.



Olive is second from left, beechwood is second from right.

I've had a Leatherman Skeletool going on 5 years now. For my purposes, I couldn't ask for any more. Full multitool functionality without the multitool gigantic utility belt look. The ONLY thing I would change is to get rid of the stupid holes in the blade. I do use mine for food, and everything seems to find a way into the holes in the blade. The sizing of the holes makes them very difficult to clean out.

I alternate between the Benchmade 581 Barrage (top) and Benchmade 585 mini-Barrage. Both have the Axis lock with spring assisted opening. Great pocket knives.

Keep this in my back pocket and it will even cut a beer can in half.

I have one similar to this:

From Marttiini in Finland.



But It is illegal to cary knives here in Sweden so I only carry it when I am out in the woods.

Yep,,, I agree on dem dern little useless holes. Oh yea,,,,, and I wish they made a super sized one, maybe .5-1 inch longer blade. That would be very close to perfect for me.

victorianox pioneer harvester is a great pocket knife. i do electrical, and the straight blade works great for couplings, and connectors when i can't reach my screw driver, and the hook blade is great for the occasional use and is easy to sharpen
