Or a Emerson CQC7 since I believe Benchmade does not make them any longer.

My personal favorite is a Benchmade Stryker 910 with a 3.75" blade Black-T coating. But an Gerber Applegate folder is also very nice, a bit heavier though.

I'm with Retrodog and Comp1911 here.... The Emerson CQC7 is the best tactical folder hands down. I don't think that benchmade makes em anymore.. I have one but its not nearly as nice as the Emerson I got two weeks ago.

comp1911, You are probably correct. I've had mine for a few years. I got it right after it first came out. I would have preferred the real Emerson but there was a large $$$ difference. One of my favorite scenes on a movie was Scott Glenn in "Night of the Running Man". He had a nice folding tanto, not sure which one.

I just bought a Kershaw Ken Onion Blackout at the funshow last weekend. This thing opens as fast as a switchblade ! I love it. I don't know much about knives but I tried alot of them that day and the Ken Onion design opens easier and faster then all of them hands down.

I've carried a couple different styles of tactical folders in search of the perfect one for me. I've tried the Kershaw, it was really fast to deploy that is until it BROKE!! Sent it back for repair ( Good Customer Service ) they fixed it but am now hesitent to carry again. I've tried the CRKT, it was just too small for my hands and I didn't care for it's ergonomics. Was using the Emerson CQC-7 (Great Knife) thought they couldn'y make a better knife than that....until I got my hands on an Emerson Commander. The wave feature is great. It is as fast as a folder can get for deployment. Might seem too big for some until you get used to it. Once you do though you'll never want anything smaller. I get more piece of mind when I carry it. Oh yeah it does look purdy!!! Green Handles with a Black Blade looks damn smooth.

Here in Phoenix anybody can buy a switchblade.

How about a Benchmade model 3550
Link Posted: 3/22/2002 10:24:12 PM EDT
I like the S&W tactical folder. It is changable from folder to switch. And it is a nice knife. I know we all hate s&w but the knife is a good piece. I don't know who makes it for them.

Emerson CQC7, Benchmade 804 AFCK-II and Spyderco Police are some of my favorites. All under $100.00

Spyderco Delica or Endura in plain edge or partially serrated.

I have a Gerber Applgate/Fairbairn Combat folder with the 4.5" blad as well as the smaller matching covert folder version. GREAT KNIVES! I carry the large one everyday in my jeans pocket. They are tough, well built and engineered knives. BrenLover

I have a Kershaw 1550ST to be sent back for repair. I broke the top of the point off of mine. The knife is nice, fast enough to replace a switchblade but not strong enough for field use. I have an Emerson CQC-7B-BTS on order and thats the way to go. The CRKT AR15.com is very nice also, but I just don't want to ruin it. I know call me crazy but I like that one and don't want to break the blade! [BD]

It's not *tactical black*, but the Sebenza functions extremely well. It has the strongest locking system out there- that's pretty tactical! [img]http://www.chrisreeve.com/classic2000.jpg[/img] [url]http://www.chrisreeve.com/sebenza.html[/url]

Any Benchmade with the Axis lock system. The lock is stronger than the blade. No worries about it folding up and slicing your fingers off when you stab with it. [img]http://www.benchmade.com/images/products/W710.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.benchmade.com/images/info/axis_lock_combo.gif[/img]
AXIS LOCK™ A Benchmade exclusive, this patented AXIS locking mechanism is an ingenious marvel that has been touted by some as quite possibly "the strongest folding lock ever." It's the culmination of four years of "tinkering" by renowned custom knife makers Bill McHenry and Jason Williams. So simple yet so functional, this mechanism is certain to leave you scratching your head and saying, "WOW, why didn't I think of that…" The features of the AXIS lock are significant and greatly enhance the function of knives. First and foremost is the strength. This lock is definitely more than adequate for the demands of normal knife use. A close second to strength is the inherent AXIS advantage of being totally ambidextrous without user compromise. The blade can be readily actuated open or closed with either hand- without ever having to place flesh in the blade path. Lastly, and certainly not any less impressive, is the indescribable "smoothness" with which the mechanism and blade function. By design there are no traditional "friction" parts to the AXIS mechanism, making the action the much smoother. And it's all reasonably exposed so you can easily clean away any unwarranted debris. Basically, AXIS gets its function from a spring-loaded bar which rides forward and back in a slot machined into both liners. The bar extends to both sides of the knife; spanning the space between the liners and is positioned over the rear of the blade. It engages a ramped notch cut into the tang portion of the knife blade when it is opened. Two omega style springs, one on each liner, give the locking bar its inertia to engage the knife tang, and as a result the tang is wedged solidly between a sizable stop pin and the AXIS bar itself. It's a lot of words in an attempt to describe simplicity, but the very best way to truly appreciate the AXIS lock is to experience it for yourself firsthand. There are several models to choose from with more on the way.
