How have i not seen this thread yet?! I love knives! Ive even made a few. All the knives mentioned are great knives jcal but you said you were looking for a nice gentlemens knife, may i suggest schrade? I have had one of their old timer series folder for going on 10 years and has never let me down and they are made just a couple miles from me lol. Ive never been a huge fan of CRKT, I do have their whole minimalist series but im not a huge fan of stainless. More of a high carbon man.
@bradaddie: i agree with you on the griptilian, hate the handle. ive been contemplating trying to make a micarta handle
