I carry a Tidioute made by Queen Cutlery in Titusville PA. This knife is made in America by Americans out of real steel. You can taste the carbon. I blued it soon as I got it. Takes a hell of an edge. Have carried a knife since cub scouts and find a use for it every day. I have no clue whatever how men survive without one, other than asking me to cut this, like a girl.
I bought this knife on my 60th from the factory workers who had set up a card table in front of the Ace hardware on Main St in Tidioute PA at the 4th of July parade. They are real knife geeks. We go to Tidioute each year to see the PBR at Hickory Creek Ranch overlooking the national forest. Tidioute is a pretty little town on the Allegheny river just one silent E away from a wardrobe malfunction. If you ever want to get away from it all, I can tell you that Tidioute is right where it all is not.
Unmitigated risk aversion is the new Puritanism; complete with witch hunts, funny outfits, and humorless preachers thundering doom. The name of the Deity is changed to Safety; the name of Satan is changed to Lawyer; but the object is the same: to suck the life out of life and tell you how to live it.
