Not pristine, bit I think it's got character...

I find that having a thin, very sharp, light single blade folding knife is more useful than any other tool in my kit, both when camping and when out shooting. I particularly like this Benchmade 530 with 154cm steel. It sharpens very easily with a diamond wet stone and a home made strop. It is always sharp enough to shave with which comes in handy on an extended camping trip. On the other side of the knife is a different clip than the one it came with. I was annoyed with the cheap painted finish chipping off, so I sent Benchmade an email and a week later I had a free matte finish arrow point pocket clip, which looks great.I also usually carry a Leatherman Charge ALX which can do almost anything and a cheap but large folding M-Tech single blade knife that I also keep razor sharp, but I reserve for using in the water and any really rough tasks. There is no tool more useful than a sharp, reliable knife.

From top to bottom:

- Kershaw Blur with s30v blade
- Kershaw Leek with s30v serrated blade
- Kershaw Chive

Blur is sitting on my desk. Best knife I've ever owned.

Please tell me more about it. I don't see a name anywhere on it. I was given this knife this past week, but mistakenly thought it was custom. I don't have a sheath either.

It is a Greg Lightfoot and sadly discontinued. I have three, two are desert color with partial serrations. Check ebay, sometimes they show up. The black ones are rare and prices are climbing.

I don't think I have put a pic of this one up yet
A Bark River Knife and Tool Gunny - with Mosaic pins, black micarta handles, and a "bloody basin" spacer
One of my favorites, and a good solid working knife (that is also quite pretty)
