Cutting Edge Journalism.
For hiking as well as the impending onslaught of undead you will need a good pocket knife. The Kershaw 1550st is a good start and happens to be the one I own. Closed it is is 4 1/2 inches long and weights 3.5 ounces. The blade is half serrated at 3 1/4 inches of 13c26 steel. The handle made of polyimide the knife as a whole is pretty well balanced and durable. Assisted opening and thumb screw make operation fast. Liner lock for single handed operation, and the thumb screw is able to be moved for both left and right handed opening. The belt clip is bent out the bottom making it easy to slide into your pocket. I have used the knife pretty hard and it holds its edge nice.
