    Next week I'll start carrying for work (in addition to a Kershaw Speedsafe Compound) a CRKT M21-04

    AUS-8 Japanese steel and a 4-inch blade almost 1/4" thick.

    When not at work I'm carrying a Puma folder that was handmade in Germany and given to me by a good friend. It's a teeny bit large for dress wear but is a true gentlemans knife for the discerning individual. ;)

    And I still will have with me everywhere I go, the Ka-Bar Zombie Killer.... :D

    Okay, here are the EDC working knives, not to be confused with a very fine German-made Puma for more sophisticated and civilized occasions....

    The CRKT M21-04 has aluminum scales and the blade measures a hair under 4-inches. I confess that a 4-inch blade that's nearly 1/4" thick is a pretty huge folder to carry, but it means business and is strong as hell. I came to appreciate the blade measuring 3.875" when I recently travelled and the restrictions on knives was that blades of 4-incles and under were allowed.

    Here is the M21-04 and a Kershaw Speedsafe Assisted Compound that is lightning fast and quite a handy size for most tasks I encounter.

    I chose the aluminum so that it wouldn't be so abrasive on pockets or car seats.

    That Puma is real special to me. Thank You so much... :D

    I'll try to get a properly respectful "museum quality" photo of this sophisticated instrument. One can't simply throw out some snapshot of a hand-made German folder made by Puma, now can we???? :)

    CRKT makes a great knife...I own a few. Puma is also an excellent blade...

    I love the CRKT knives. Very well made. Even my old one from when I bought it in 95 is still holding up well. Although I don't use it daily anymore, it's the one I use when I'm in my shop.....

    I lost my Benchmade (ARG!!!) at the last outdoor event that I shot - the club was great posting to try and help me get it back but - no luck. I have, erm, a number of blades in reserve. Currently I'm attached to this variation on the CRKT M16 line (7 1/4" overall when open) - a second shot would have showed the flip, clip and dual lock. For a while I was on a run getting CRKTs at really good prices - not sure that everyone knows how good they are!

    Yes FD - CRKT made a number of variations on the M16 - a 'High Risk Environment' series (printed on blade after FD). I believe they Made a PD and Armed Forces version - maybe others. This is M16-12FDZ. IIRC I stole it off eBay - apparently others did not share my thinking that it not only looked cool (plus built well) but would be a limited run as well.
