ru1096- If you had to do it all over, would you go for the L.E. version that is thumbstud opening and sharp on both sides, or with the auto MOD Mark CQD 1? They are the same price and I am having a hard time making up my mind, although I'm not buying until I find a killer price, often not to hard with the MODs and others. Strider doesn't like to budge for some reason though, go figure.
I own the LE auto same as the one pictured in my original post. I am glad I did not recieve the double edge one(I got my MOD as a gift.), because I would cut my leg off while closing it with one hand. Its a great knife no matter what. I've had it going on two years now. My only complaint is the nylon sheath that comes with it. Its not holding up that well. This knife is to large to carry comforably in the front pocket of jeans, plus its too expensive to just trust the pocket clip on your kit.
As to Strider knives, I have never seen one in person, but everyone raves about them. Its your call.
God made man. Col. Sam Colt, and Gaston Glock made them equal!
