Contego, Mother of all Tactical Knives
Ive had this knife for a while now and its become my EDC blade, Ive used it twice in emergency situations and it has yet to let me down, The first time a guy tried to mug/carjack me, even though I broke the golden rule about not carrying change and a knife in the same pocket, and a penny jammed the blade closed it still served as a nice impact device, and all it took was one hit to put the guy down. Last weekend I spent the weekend in the Cascades in Washington camping, It was very cold around 20F. I had just finished setting up camp and I started to process wood for a fire, I was using a saw to cut deadfall trees into smaller logs and I was using a large fixed blade that I just bought (that shall remain nameless) to split the wood. I had just enough to start a fire when my fixed blade snapped off at the handle, the sub freezing temps and the very dense wood just proved too much. I should have brought my CS Recon Scout that I normally carry but since it was so cold and I had a long hike I decided to lose the extra pound and left it in the car. I did have my Kershaw skyline Fixed blade but its too small for splitting anything useful. So my only option was the Contego It was getting dark, It would have taken me 3 hours to go back to the car and that wasnt an option, the hike was difficult and treacherous in the day and suicide at night, So I made some wedges and got to work, and the Contego along with the wedges worked great, I processed the rest of the deadfall tree I cut up and had enough wood to keep the fire burning all night and well into the morning. Obviously splitting wood is asking alot of a folder, and even though the blade came out worse for wear with a lot of lock wear and slight deformation the knife performed great. The blade has some play in it now but its still 100% usable and in no way compromised by the hard use. I would have been in trouble out there if I didnt have my Contego.

Tough,Durable and Extremely Rock Solid lock Up.
I use the CONTEGO as my primary EDC knife. Very solid build, M4 steel,Ceracoat finish,Glass breaker,comfortable and non slip grip. Precision built with zero blade play and rock solid lock up. This knife is close to perfection IMO.

Cons: None
I've had this knife for over year know and I am really blown away by its durability and edge retention! I use this on a daily basis cutting through material and even my lunch sometimes and goes with me everywhere and I've sharpened it maybe three times since I have owned it and it just keeps taking the abuse I put up to it. I've even chopped through a 2x4 wit this thing and the lock up is still tight, if this knife ever gives out in my life time I'd gladly buy another.
