I have more Benchmade knives than any other. They're very well built, hold an edge, the Axis lock is perfection and they have an excellent warranty and knife sharpening service. Their most popular model, the 940 & 943 aren't bulky to carry, but they're tough enough to use as a multitool. I may or may not have 3 of those. I carry one almost daily. Sometimes I toss a Spyderco in the pocket, but it's usually a Benchmade.
