Default Knife with a suit!

I've been pondering what knife to get for those days when I wear a suit, AKA a "Gentlemen's Folder". I am looking at these so far (I really like Spyderco); any other suggestions?

Spyderco Centofante Memory




Spyderco Chaparral 3

For dress occasions, there's nothing better than a Pro-Tech Godfather or The DON. Especially the tuxedo versions.

Jim Magee may have some of both at the gun show this weekend at KCI too.

I saw these and drooled all afternoon. I don't have 600 to spend, but if I did! This would be the way to go for me. I like the front flipper without the tang.

Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

I picked up the Centofante Memory yesterday for $100.00. Great damned deal at the gun show. Couldn't resist.

Btw big man, it was good to see you and meet Jim. That Godson in brown was my favorite it was just about 3times what I could spend. But I hope to have one someday.

It's really nice to have a refined blade for the days when I need to be a bit more professional. I sharpened it last night on the sharp-maker. Damn it was fast, easy and it is really sharp. This VG-10 is a dream. I can only imagine how much better other steels are.

HiLandR, you're definitely hooked. Only a matter of time until we're both carrying $1,000+ knives every day.

(my current EDC is a $230 Microtech Ultratech)

I would love to have a Protech Defiance as well! It's a classy dual action. Have you ever had one KW?

Nope, never had a Defiance.

I do have several stealth autos though ...

Pro-Tech / Mike "Whiskers" Allen Magic (black) - very cool palm-based bolster deployment. Nobody is ever able to figure out how it works.

Pro-Tech / Mike "Whiskers" Allen Magic (jazz)

Lone Wolf Harsey D2 - deployment mechanism is hidden under scale. You have to push it in just the right location.

Volcan / Matt Diskin Amsterdam

Cheap no-name bolster release

I've been looking at quite a few customs, and they fed my design ideas for the one I designed. I just hope it's unique enough for them.
