    Can someone tell me what the “catch” is for the kershaw link with 20cv?

  2. J Richard on October 28, 2021 at 8:21 pm

    Although the 940-1 is expensive, it is the only knife you need in your life. Great knife by bench made!!

  3. Jeffrey Blose on October 28, 2021 at 8:23 pm

    None of those knives is worth anything more than 30 bucks!

  4. Steve on October 28, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Thanks David C., really enjoy your vids. Could you address benchmade pocket clips. I love the matte finish parkerized clips.. I hate the painted clips, it looks like the 940-1 has an old school non painted clip. My question is am i guaranteed the clip that I see is the one I will get. Thanks again, Steve B.

  5. Angela Martinez on October 28, 2021 at 8:28 pm

    I only by American made knives using crucible steel for my borthers and father.

  6. David Ruby on October 28, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    Awesome broadcast as always no silly trying to be funny as another channel lol straight facts an honest opinions that I don’t have to listen to an extra 30 minutes of bullshit to get the best information I want to make a informative buy from thanks again keep up the good work

  7. Jacob Olness on October 28, 2021 at 8:31 pm

    I am late to the party but the 940 is a great blade with tons of utility. The reverse tango seems weird at first but you get a long blade, good geometry, and a TON of tip strength.
    My 940 has been used hard for 6 years and still is kicking ass.
    Sent in to Benchmade last week for a new blade since my shiny 9400 was making the scratched up blade look rough.
    Keeping the scales though, they have that great "lived in" look.

  8. Learn 2 Lizard on October 28, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    USA made is deceiving, can still be from China

  9. Lawrence brandt on October 28, 2021 at 8:32 pm

    the last ZT very cool .

  10. V. Costa on October 28, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Esee Zancudo ???

  11. Charlie Baker on October 28, 2021 at 8:33 pm

    Ok im sorry but 110s are the most bland meh disappointing boring pos kids terrible first pocket knife

  12. Erik Holden on October 28, 2021 at 8:34 pm

    Absolutely loving the individual links to each knife in the video. Loving knife center.

  13. David NCW on October 28, 2021 at 8:35 pm

    I have a Bare Knuckle in my shopping basket. I need another 11$ or so to free shipping. What stone or rod, or…….for keeping it sharp? Kershaw 7777OLBW Bareknuckle USA-Made Flipper Knife 3.5" 14C28N BlackWashed

  14. Paul Joseph Buggle on October 28, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    As a European (Irish living in Spain) I often wonder about the "made in America" theme that runs through many EDC channels.. I have many American knives because they are so good.
    I love America but products should be sold on their quality rather than their country of origin. It’s called the knife world, or is it not?

  15. monocogenit1 on October 28, 2021 at 8:36 pm

    Merica!!!! Lol I always purchase American made products when possible.

  16. Kris Tyler on October 28, 2021 at 8:38 pm

    I carry my 110 slim pro at work every day and its awesome.

  17. Eric Swenson on October 28, 2021 at 8:40 pm

    For pure EDC, I think the ZT 450 is a little more reasonable. 452 is just a bit big.

  18. Tabitha Joshua on October 28, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    My favorite is the Benchmade mini griptilian 555- 1 with the G10 and 20cv

  19. Donkey Blue on October 28, 2021 at 8:41 pm

    GREAT video! I only buy US made knives, although I won’t buy leftist Benchmade anymore.

  20. Edward Hart on October 28, 2021 at 8:47 pm

    Is there a reason why you don’t show Columbia River Knives?

  21. Chris D on October 28, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    I like those new bucks with the pocket clip and thumb stud. I have some of the knives on the table the bugout was my only edc for months working outside and it actually has been great very sliced no chips or rolled edges, until you carry it edc for a while you don’t know what you’re missing it has a great deep carry pocket clip that is out of the way while using. The only reason to carry something else is to carry something bigger. I was carrying a cold steel spartan the most bc its a giant bang for the buck knife, cut boxes, tape, chop tree limbs outdoors, or pry a f350 hood open lol strong lock great handle with a giant slab of aus10 for less then 70 bucks and it’s razor sharp

  22. Edward Hart on October 28, 2021 at 8:48 pm

    Aren’t Buck knives made in China?

  23. Mr. Clean on October 28, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    American made knives yet you show us a kershaw lmao

  24. Sharp Stuff on October 28, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Hey y’all! I’ve just started watching your channel and recently purchased a leatherman skeletool cx for my edc and I am very happy with it. I was wondering if you had any suggestions for my wife as she starts working as a nurse for an edc?

  25. Jeep1967 on October 28, 2021 at 8:52 pm

    Is it just me, or does the Gerber Fastball look like a Kershaw Leek knockoff?

  26. jon louis on October 28, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Great video. I’ve had too many issues in the last few years with imports. The QC just isn’t there, at least in my price range.

  27. Robert Seddon on October 28, 2021 at 8:53 pm

    Very very interested in the mini-osborne. Looking forward to some options for it as I don’t want the black blade.

  30. Jumper on October 28, 2021 at 8:57 pm

    Love my 940-1. I didn’t like the stock pocket clip so I asked benchmade for a deep carry,and they sent one to me no charge.

  31. PockeTanK on October 28, 2021 at 8:59 pm

    Hold up wheres Microtech, Emerson, Hogue, Strider, Hinderer…… 😒

  32. TC1836 on October 28, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    I love Buck as a company and want them to do well but I just can’t do some of those pocket clips

  33. mark comisky on October 28, 2021 at 9:00 pm

    Whats the quickest flipper knives

  34. Kent Heaps on October 28, 2021 at 9:06 pm

    Looking at some of these knives and am wondering what the difference in quality of blades would be between say a Kershaw Bare Knuckle with a CPM-20 and a knife with a blade that is S30V? Would there be a big difference in blade hardness? Any thoughts out there?

  35. Armed Penguin on October 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm


  36. Horatio Gates on October 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    The 4inch zt is so good looking. I’ll get one someday.

  37. michael niedorf on October 28, 2021 at 9:07 pm

    Favorite knife hogue Doug Ritter mini

  38. W203Toronto on October 28, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    Awesome video! Thank you for producing this overview of domestic knives!

  39. flash more on October 28, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    I really like the Kershaw range, Ive been using Kershaw knives for filleting and fishing tasks forever!

  40. bigB6flyer on October 28, 2021 at 9:10 pm

    That Kershaw Link in 20cv is my latest & is a great knife esp for the money.

  41. MOfun01 on October 28, 2021 at 9:12 pm

    Rat 1

  42. Jim88 on October 28, 2021 at 9:13 pm

    Plenty of good knives on the table today, Thx for the comparisons. I do like the "Bug Out" and have considered it for a while but never got one because there are certainly better buys when it comes to the pricing so looking for a pre-owned in good shape.

  43. paintball130 on October 28, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    WHERE IS THE PRESIDIO 2 ITS SUCH A GOOD FREAKING KNIFFFFFFFFFFFFFFE… it never makes it into video like this 🙁

  44. Frogturtle xd on October 28, 2021 at 9:14 pm

    wish the BM mini vallation ended up on the list. AO isn’t for everyone but I absolutely love it, a staple of my EDC.

  45. Gothic Hangman on October 28, 2021 at 9:15 pm

    Personally I don’t understand the wide appeal of Spiderco knives. My favorite EDC for work is the Milwaukee D2 Hardline Tanto with serrated edges which is 50-60 Bucks.

  46. Grizz the Forklift Mechanic on October 28, 2021 at 9:17 pm

    I used to be a Kershaw USA geek, I have a Rake that I edc’d for 8 years till the torsion bar broke from fatigue, warranty dept was a joke, they didn’t have a replacement and wanted me to hand it in for store credit, I told them to F off. I liked the junkyard dogs, tyrades and blurs but they don’t have anything interesting to me anymore. I sent the blur in for a replacement blade and they didn’t replace it, just sharpened it and sent it back. I likely won’t buy anything from them again

  47. mi2092 on October 28, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    I’m a month late to this video and the Kershaw Link 20CV is out of stock already.
    I preordered it along with a R2D2. Hopefully they will be back in stock soon. Love the Kershaw Speedsafe. Closest thing I can get to an automatic, which is illegal in our state.

  48. Zack Rutledge on October 28, 2021 at 9:18 pm

    The Kershaw link in 20CV is one hell of a deal folks.

  49. Jay Harry on October 28, 2021 at 9:20 pm

    David C Anderson, I just wanted you to know that I’ve officially switched my alliegence from BladeHQ to you guys. Just placed my first order.

  50. Ryan Davis on October 28, 2021 at 9:21 pm

    I love the smooth operation of a ZT. However I prefer a D2 tool steel over S35VN all day long. Why they built a knife around this steel is beyond me. After carrying two different ZT’s for the last 9 months, I find myself carrying the Leak more often to simply impress my fellow coworkers on it’s sharpness and edge retention. Even using the Wicked Edge to sharpen, S35VN will never again be in a future purchase.
