I'm looking for a knife that I can carry with me when I, hopefully, become a police officer and for general everyday use. Any ideas? I know that law enforcement officers can carry auto-open knives if that helps.

Looks like Erick and Sig are leading you in the right direction. I love my Benchmade knives, my personal favorite blade is CM154 with the black coating. The Benchmade I carry daily got used yesterday to cut insulation and light tin and it took only minutes to put the edge back.

Give us a little more info on what kind of knife you want...I assume you would want a tactical folder for your pocket or to clip to your duty belt?

I have a couple SOGs I like a lot...mine are fixed blade though:

I also like my CRKT knives for folders, they are extremely tough and easy to edge: http://www.crkt.com/foldingtacticalknives

As for Benchmade knives, they are great and I own a couple...thought I would spread some more love around though.

Yeah a tact folder would be nice. The problem I have is I'm not a law enforcement officer yet so it would be illegal for me to carry one.

My understanding of the law in OK is that you can carry any knife as long as it isn't an automatic and the blade is 6" or less. Auto assist knives obviously skirt the issue b/c they technically aren't automatic. Any of the knives mentioned should be able to be carried, just keep in mind the blade length.

I've carried this knife for about 3 years and if I ever lose it I will buy the same one again. The blade is strong and holds an edge really well. It is not assisted open, but it doesn't need to be, the location of the little knob on the blade makes it really easy to flick open with your thumb, its a lot easier and just as fast to open then my dad's old switchblades (which are in good condition and work like they should).

I would not recommend anything with a serrated or half serrated blade, you just can't sharpen those.

I wonder how many outdoors men, fishermen, hunters, and cooks break that law if it actually exists. There was a guy here at work the other day that had a 10" butcher knife used to cut up his food for lunch. He was walking down the hall with it, and I let him pass since he was fumbling with his food and knife.:D
