    a winery in my carry on bag. It was confiscated by the airline. Had I, an old man, tried harm anyone with that my ass would have been beaten beyond
    recognition. I agree, things have gone way too far.

    So, basically this means the airlines are selling what they take from you. Good thing, their profit margine is way to low

    This is actually a fact, but I think its TSA agents. Look through ebay and you will see what I mean.

    I have been carrying this knife for a while now. It has become my favorite pocket knife. I have been an Opinel fan boy for years.

    It is light in the pocket has a thin sharp blade that does most of what I want a pocket knife to do. It will cut cheese (like me), slice an apple, open cardboard boxes and spread mayo or mustard.

    It may be a child's safety knife, but it suits me well.

    Charlie, those opinels are gorgeous and timeless knives. Been wanting to get one for a bit. The price point is pretty tempting. But, I've been carrying this Leatherman FREE T4 I got for Christmas. Everything is easy 1 handed operation except the blade, which is a decent safety feature.

    I've been carrying a buck 110 slim profile since x-mas the neon green G5 scales help to find it when I set it down and it holds an edge well enough for me. I have re ground it from original right off the bat. It opens easily with one hand and is light enough I dont notice it at all in or rather on my pocket.. It has definitely taken over the bulk of use from my k bar neck knife, Which I still wear every day anyway. Being an old time buck 110 fan this smaller lighter version has been a great addition to my collection and it's not so pricey as to make me hesitant to carry it.

    Florida is a concealed carry state which I have covered but the "concealed" part also conceals the deterrent. Though this is a tool first and foremost it also serves the purpose of visual deterrent. Since I work in the security industry and situations can sometimes get rather......tense it is good to have something to invoke further thought before rash action forcing me to defend myself.
    Oh there's also the Leatherman Surge on the belt and the Victorinox Officer in the magazine pocket

    Para3 “Lightweight” sporting the S110V blade out of my old “Blurple” model. This steel suits my purposes very nicely, despite all the litany of “feedback” available wherever one might look. I simply swapped the blades and the BD1N is now running in the blurple scales.

    This was a very straightforward upgrade in my case. Maybe I got lucky, I haven’t researched much about switching blades on Para3’s. Both setups run perfectly and the S110V wearing Lightweight shoes is one of my all-time favorite EDC knives.
