I'm looking for a replacement for my Victorinox (which is now with my daughter in Ireland - long story.) Anyway, I've carried a pocketknife forever. The Swiss Army knives seemed to suit me well, but I didn't like not having a locking, more substantial blade. I would be willing to carry a larger knife, though I need to keep it in my pocket vs. on a clip. Often what works well in jeans may not work well in dress pants. Victorinox has started to make some knives with locking blades, including ones which can be opened single handed, which I will look into. I've never owned a Gerber knife, but I've heard good things about them. Otherwise I'm not really familiar with other brands. Some other thoughts: Locking blade, one handed open, non-serrated preferred. I like certain Swiss Army knife tools (bottle opener, scissors, etc), but would be willing to give up for a good blade. I've seen both Gerber and Victorinox knives with "seat belt cutter" blades - I don't know if that's a gimmick vs. a standard blade, but might be nice to have in the car and plane. I'm still in the market for a Leatherman or multi-tool, but I think that's overkill and too large for daily carry. It would stay in my flight bag, and I want something for the pocket. Perhaps my perfect knife doesn't exist, but any thoughts would be appreciated.
