i was kinda using that buzz phrase jokingly, but i believe the difference is one costs 10.00 and one costs 300.00 (kidding) i think "tactical folders" have easier to open blade designs and pocket clips for easier access.

Benchmade 690 Elishewitz #442/1000 Rosewood handles with carbon fiber inlays. Titanium liners, spoon pocket clip, thumbstud, serrated, and sharp as hell. Santa Claus(wife) loves me! I believe they call this a gentleman's tactical folder.

I have a couple Tactical folders. Here are my favorites that I purchased at the end of January, after lots of research... Benchmade Osborne 940, green handle (black also available) with black Teflon coated reverse tanto-style blade, combo edge, and axis lock. The axis lock allows the blade to open and close easily and quickly (even compared to the Kershaw I am about to tell ya about). This is great for an every day knife since its lightweight, thin, easy to use, and SHARP! [URL]http://www.benchmade.com/detail.asp?id=8081111997314&item=49[/URL] Kershaw Ken Onion Boa, black, TiN black combo edge blade, with speed-safe opening (AKA "spring assist"). This thing is twice as big, and twice as heavy as the Benchmade. The blade does stick out a little to protect it from closing on your finger. It also has a liner lock. [url]http://www.kershawknives.com/boa.htm[/url] I prefer the Benchmade over the Kershaw since I can flip it out and close it very quickly...

I bet you would love my Osborne 940. Benchmades ROCK! and the axis lock is a NICE feature that makes the knife easy to operate.

Smith and Wesson SWAT folder, plain edge. The action is smooth and easy enough that i can open it as quickly as my friend's Kershaw Blackout(with SpeedSafe). Fits my hand perfectly, and and is sharp enough to shave with. And yes, i have proved that. Also a generic, all metal butterfly. Cheap, pretty good point, and looks cooler than anything being opened, even if it's not a 'tactical folder'.

I carry a S&W Swat tactical folder, it was pretty cheap (less than $50 I think) and is a good strong design and the blade flips open if you snap your wrist just right. Strong and cheap and I don't care if I lose it or break it. I dremeled off the S&W logo though. I have a microtech that stays home, it's too nice and costly to carry, and it's illegal to carry a auto knife in Texas. Funny, they let me carry a gun but won't let me carry a auto knife. Rediculous.

A pair of CRKT Crawford/Kasper, one small, one large. I like CRKT because they're cheap enough to replace every 6 months or so, or whenever one gets lost or dropped overboard.

Used to carry a Spyderco Horn religiously, but got tired to beating it up at work. Acquired a Kershaw Scallion for my work knife and a Boa (multicolor) for the hell of it. These are pretty sweet for the price. The Scallion is very responsive and a constant conversation piece for about 3 weeks running. If you haven't handled one yet, give it a try. The Boa is a little large, and not quite as responsive (via the "flipper") as the scallion, but I'm not disappointed. Bought it half for the speed-safe system, and half for the steel. It's the first knife I've owned in CPM440V.

(forgot the saw) imo is the greatest knife ever made have cut or opened the following with it. boxes windows cardoors bones wooden crates explosives kindling my finger para cord rope etc etc etc

OK OK enough already lol I am appropriately shamed. I will have to get one of those beautiful AR15.com tactical folders to carry when I'm "off duty", but for now and most of the time when I'm working(all the time spring/summer/fall)I carry a beat up Swiss army pocket knife(small one with just two blades)since I am constantly using it to cut into turf I would not want to desecrate a beauty like the tactical folder.

I was just wondering if anyone out their actually carry's a micro-tek? I saw one at a gun show recently that was a out the front model that retracts as fast as it comes out. One small problem though. the $500 + price tag. I have always wanted. a micro-tek but don't know if I would carry it for fear of screwing up the finish anyway. So who carry's one?

Oh yeah-- I forgot I purchased a swiss army knives earlier this year too... the one with the blade, fingernail file, and scissors. Cool features on it: LED red light (button is the swiss army logo) and ball point pen!. I got a clear blue one-- sharp and compact.
