    Not sure at what price point you would cry if you lost it but here are my normal EDC knives. Ontario Rat, $30. BM CLA $230, BM Emissary 470 <$200ish. Different knives for different purposes. For what its worth the CLA is hands down my favorite EDC. But it is an auto, FYI.

    Another one here for Kershaw. I like any of their assisted opening knives. Not super expensive but work well. This is the one I have closest to me right now.

    I’ve been carrying an SOG flash ii since I lost my crkt. I’m a big fan of the opening mechanism for the CRKT m14,m16,m21 knives. Super fast unassisted opening and easy to clean. Maybe not the best EDC blade design but it does the job well.

    OP, I'd recommend you steer away from unusual blade shapes (like this is a tanto for instance) until you are confident you can effectively sharpen it.

    Not looking for an auto and would like to spend less than $50. Maybe serrated edge as well????

    The Spyderco linked by @geekhouse23 is a terrific choice for sub $50. Why do you want serrated? It's not often a serrated will outperform a well maintained straight edge. Unless you are cutting branches, but there are better tools for the job that a pocket folder. Again, serrated is difficult to sharpen.

    I have a tenacious partial serrated and a boker partial serrated full auto if I need it. Happy with my new straight edge but everyone's needs are different

    I’ve got probably a half dozen benchmades, and they are my favorite knives.

    That being said, my EDC at work for the past few months has been a Ruike 801.


    They’re a sister company to Fenix flashlights And they’re very well made and impressive for the price, 29.99. I’ve got 3 now...

    Kershaw semi automatics are good, I got a few of the ken onions and leeks. I picked up a Smith and Wesson MP for a decent price at the gun show a few years back, keep it in the console in the truck and it still serves well with its original edge. It’s got the window breaker on the back of the handle too
