8) Singin; My favorite Benchmade Auto is the AFO AUTO MODEL 9050. It has a 3.75 inch blade and very smooth action. Go to Benchmade.com and look it up. ::tu::

I sometimes carry a 2550 mini reflex. I like it a bunch...
http://www.benchmade.com/products/produ ... model=2550

It's a bit smaller than the AFO auto, which makes it a bit more practical for pocket carry in my opinion. Don't get me wrong, I do like the AFO. ::tu::

Another good one is the 3550 Pardue...
http://www.benchmade.com/products/produ ... model=3550

Probably the most practical for pocket cary. The shape is nice and symetrical and streamline and all that stuff which makes it comfy and easy to get in and easy to get out of the pocket.

I have a 3550 with ATS-34. I've carried it on occasion and by god I like it too. :D

I like the 9050 with 154CM, great knife with plenty of handle.

I have a Black one similar to Gary's....don't know the model but they are awesome knives. :)
Someone else mentioned Pro-Tech.....I agree...sweet knife with the hardest spring of all my auto's...The Godfather that I own will jump out of your hand. :shock:
Also you might want to check out Spyderco's new line of auto's....third pic down is the Citadel that I own....great action.
Last but not least is the USA Gerber.....very nice smooth action....one of my favorites to carry. ::tu::
