So I've been carrying the original walmart special Kershaw brawler I bought about 8 years ago daily since then. This past week the assisted opening finally gave up the ghost. I need to dig out the spare and see if I can get Keeshaw to fix the broken one. I still love my Brawler.It was cheap, but I love my Brawler and have carried it everyday since I got it. I bought one of the Wally World specials too. It came with the knife, a flashlight and a tactical pen. Once I found I loved my brawler, after about two days of using it, I went back to buy another one as a spare and they didn't have any more. Two years ago, I ended up buying a backup at the SMKW store for about 50% more than the walmart special and I only got a knife. I've loved Kershaw knives for about 15 years now. My first was a Whirlwind with a green handle.

So the spring for my brawler came today. I made up some khaki and black linen micarta years ago. I think I'm gonna try to make new scales for the brawler while I have it torn apart.After looking at the warranty I could have my brawler repaired for $7 plus return shipping, but I opted for them to send me parts. Parts are free much like keltec. I'm about half way through my 2 week wait for parts. I was very impressed that they will replace a broken blade for $10.
I really don't just keep this little Smith and wesson in my gun cabin just in case.Relatively Inexpensive Knife EDC (continued) - I really like the CRKT CEO (see 1/26/20 post above) and it lives in my shirt pocket at my office.
But for 4 weeks I’ve been working remotely from home (& am very thankful for that) so a bigger knife has been my EDC:

I bought my son a Boker AK & mini AK, and kept this for myself
