    Spyderco Delica 4. I think I found mine in the $60 range on Ebay and I love it. I've had a bunch of Kershaws too and I liked all of them but wanted to move away from the assisted opening.

    I’d have to second the Kershaw Leek. Probably the best value on a great US made EDC. Very utilitarian blade shape and takes a razor edge. I love mine. Having said that, my EDC is a G-10 Benchmade Mini Griptilian :D

    Oh I caught that, and I was going to call you out on it but then realized I would be doing exactly the same thing!

    I was gifted a Kershaw Grid for Christmas, complete with my name laser-etched in the side (sorry @Kanyon71 , my brother bought it without consulting you on the laser beams ;)).

    Obviously haven't used it a ton, but it is a good balance in size, weight, ease of carry, and ease of use. I think this'll serve me quite well. Glad to see a lot of other nods for Kershaw!

    I've had a Kershaw Blur in my pocket for years now, Best part was I found it in a parking garage, so it cost me Free.99. I kinda felt bad, because the thing was a RAZOR when I found it, so whoever owned it really must have loved it and been a knife guy. Didn't bother turning it in because the hotel in Seattle probably would have binned it or pocketed it and not known what they had.

    OP, What do you mean by "Cheap"? You ask for cheap then post a $145 Spyderco. Whats your budget?

    Had one of these for a while My wife carries it now as I now have two different bench mades I switch from. Gerber Covert Mini FAST it's very "stabby" feeling in the hand.

    Before that I had this set and would swap between them. Gerber Evo Set I still have the large one somewhere. I had that as my EDC for like 10 years, it's trashy now but I loved it, did everything it needed to.

    It’s all good man. Makes me think though I have a Ka-Bar Black Mule Serrated maybe I should do some laser work on the blade.

    I’d love to have one of those knives. Can’t justify it though.

    Ding ding ding!!

    Any of the Ken Onion series Kershaws will serve you well.

    I carry this Scallion every single waking moment, and it gets used in the shop all day cutting open boxes and other stuff.
