Which blade would be the better of the 2 for EDC and camping use? GB looks bad ass but the AR seems more usable.

Poll to follow!

Save your money and buy a Benchmade, it'll hurt a lot less when you lose it. I've carried a knife for my entire adult life (About 7 years, hah) and am on my fifth knife and second Benchmade due to losing the other knives over time. Usually it involves it getting snagged and pulled out my pocket without me noticing.

Also, Benchmade axis lock > *

I have always lusted the SnG/SmF


AR is the most usable blade for camping chores I believe.

The next knife I get will have a spear point blade (CRKT M21-04 or SF). I'd go with the AR but that's me.

Goddamn those are some expensive folders though.

I wish I could afford a Strider.

I used to carry a Strider AR every day. Before you buy either knife, I would suggest that you think about the following:

The Strider AR is big. I'm talking, "is that a knife in your pocket or are you happy to see me" big. The Strider AR is so big that instead of the little *snik* noise most pocket knives make when you open them, it emits a loud, deep *thok*. It's so big that it's difficult to wear with tight jeans like 550s. Not to say that it's not a decent knife, because it is - I used mine all the time - but the fact of the matter is that the Strider is so damn large that carrying it can sometimes be a pain.

I currently carry an Al Mar SERE 2000 and I find that I like that much better. The Strider is stashed in my tool bag, in case I ever need it.

I'd get whichever one costs the most. That's the surest way to get the best, and impress the ladies.
