Recommend me a knife with spring assisted opening

Lost my Kershaw knife last night, it wasn't anything special but I'm now looking for an upgrade and really want assisted opening, standard pocket knife, drop point, serrated, smooth, no preference. Looking to spend under $100.

I have a Kershaw and I really love it! It has the assisted opening but I'm looking for a Case pocket knife now! Good Luck!

Don't know any under 100 but I have been real happy with my Benchmade. Good knives with a lifetime sharpness warranty. You should check them out

Benchmade Griptillian! Axis lock FTW

Spyderco Manix 2, amazing Ball Bearing lock.

These are better than assisted opening knives imo

Just placed my order for a Flash II on Amazon. $46 shipped. Thanks for the recommendation. To the OP. Best of luck with your choice.

I have a small Kershaw Rouge with the wood inlays. super thin and ultra lighweight so it doesent wear a hole in your pants pocket. Holds a edge forever, the best out of all the pocket knives I have had and lost. About 4.5" long when unfolded, maybe a 1" in width blade. It got a workout cutting tape on christmas boxes this morning,,lol.

Kershaw Avalanche!! It was right at $100 and is made from S30V steel. I also have a Kershaw Chive and the Avalanche feels like a much better knife. The steel on the Avalanche keeps an edge like no other. I have cleaned 3 deer with out sharpening and it still took hair off my arm.
