Do yourself a favor, before you buy ANYTHING online... go to your local Walmart and buy the knife that I and a few others have suggested. Take it out of the package and open it one-handed. See how it balances and how the grip feels. Then close it one-handed. If you still want another knife return it and you're out nothing. That action is beyond words and you would generally spend a LOT more money on a knife to get something comparable. Until you FEEL it you just don't know. I annoyed the crap out of my wife when I first got one years ago because I would sit and flick it open and closed one handed for hours while watching TV. It's that cool.

I Didn't think from the pricey amount perspective as the knife was issued to me and really never looked it up for the price & $136 is a lot of money for EDC which someone can lose easily.

Will take a look at CRKT Knifes.

Hopefully they still stock them because on the walmart website it says no longer available. Not sure what's up with that.

You won't be disappointed. I lost mine one day and I immediately ordered another. I looked a few other knives, but they don't have the balance or the smooth action or the crispness of the locking mechanism.

I am a bit blade addicted. i have 3 emerson knives and 2 striders, these are my edc rotation. In my truck i keep a benchmade mini griptilian, great little knife, made in the USA, but is a bit over the op's price point at around $80-90.
The spyderco tanacious gets great reviews and i believe is under $50.
for a small edc. i love my strider pt, for something big, i carry my emerson cqc 15 or roadhouse. built like tanks and can take a beating.
Just my 2 cents.

I guess I am the minority here and I don't pay a lot for my every day pocket knife. Previously I carried a Beretta knife for 5 or 6 years until i broke it. Then I carried a gerber and it broke 2 or 3 times over the span of a few years and kept adding new points to it with a grinder. Currently I carry a winchester that I found on the side of the lake a year or so ago. It also has a broken tip. The way I see it i am pretty rough on my knives and have managed to break the tips off of them all so I dont want to spend a lot of money. Just use it and abuse it for a few years then get another 15 or 20 dollar knife. plus I don't feel bad when i do break the tip. just hit the grinder and make it a bit shorter.

And I have used all of these knives for everything from gutting and skinning deer to splitting wood for kindling. They all seem to perform about the same as long as you keep a sharp edge on it. The only one i wouldn't use again is the home depot special. that thing was made out of play dough im pretty sure

The blur is the most expensive knife I own so I completely understand

Most of my knives are between $15-$35 or so not including my issued knife of course...i have several that I've had to "fix" the tip on etc

I chose the blur, however, because it just feels perfect in my hand and the assisted opening is fantastic and at around $50 it's still not an unreasonable cost for a knife I will carry for several years

My current EDC is a more classic design.
A simple Case Medium Stockman....

It was around $55 at Bass Pro.

my EDC for work is K-BAR FIN MOJO. Really solid knife with great action. I like that it is heavy for the jobs you need if for. My EDC for out of work when i just want a blade without so much weight is the CRKT K.I.S.S Assist. Great for the small carry weight.

Higher quality knife and you will not break them, and if you do, it will be repaired or replaced for free.

emerson cqc15, 7 years old, daily use, been there and back again, still kicking like the day i got it. I have a 12 year old cqc7 that looks like twice as bad as this one, but still is as perfect as the day i got it.

Spyderco has various knives still made in the USA.

Same here but I think over 5 years now. I was reading a thread once where some guy was trying to say that all these Ken Onion mechanisms fail after a few hundred times of being used. Needless to say I ROFL'd since that's a typical day for me on average.

It's SO damn addicting. lol

Me thinks that guy doesn't actually own one. Mine has easily been through that a few times over and it still works flawlessly. I keep checking it to see if there's any play at all.

None.
