Here's my daily blade, a Benchmade Mini Auto Presidio. Its served me well for a few years, and is my favorite utilitarian knife I own. The KA-BAR is a sentimental gift from a friend who I grew up and served with.

My Benchmade 275 Adamas arrived yesterday. Designed in collaboration with custom maker Shane Sibert, it is indeed a beasty of a blade. As you can see, it totally overshadows my Ritter Grip.

You know I'd strangle myself with it.

The clip kept getting bent and I'd bend it back but it's at the point now where if I drop trou' or slide along the floor it'll fall out of my pocket. Which is what happened to me today. The damned thing will probably come back to me as this is the 3rd time I've lost it.

All that aside, I don't like the price, but what do Y'all have to say about the ZT200s?

Geebus, EG, what do you do to your knives that you bend the pocket clip?

I think you need one of those spring retracting belt mounted key doohickeys. Like what janitors used to use.

That sounds like a recipe for disaster.

It's Kürbczech's couch. The clip gets hooked on the fabric while I'm sitting and when I get up it bends the shit out of the clip. I'd take clip off and bend it back properly, but the allen screws had stripped out.
