    Well, I think I lost my Benchmade that I have had for years at the gym yesterday. Anyone have a recommendation for a decent knife under $50, not serrated, has a clip, preferably that comes in black and a closed length under 4"?

    Narrowed down to the Kershaw Leek, Scallion or the Spyderco Tenacious. Between these three do you like the Leek better? I tend to prefer a drop point blade a little more but I don't really have a reason for that.

    I bought this Kershaw because i really like the size and Kershaw makes good knives for the price. I carry it 99% more than my Chris Reeve for 1. it cost a fraction of the price and 2. it doesnt hit my snuff can in my pocket when i walk like the CR does.

    Gerber: might not be sexy but they're durable, inexpensive, and get the job done.

    For me I'm done buying expensive knives since I recently lost two of them in a six month period.

    Had a Kershaw for twelve years that just wouldn’t quit, used and abused. Recently lost it, and went to Walmart. Grabbed their spring assisted knife, ten bucks, it’s only been a day, so cant really say too much. But it came quite sharp, and the spring assist opening is just slightly below what my Kershaw was.

    We will see.

    Instead of having 5 knives made in China or Taiwan,….. howsabout buying a benchmade griptilian for a hundred bucks. Or any number of other options made in US, Japan, Germany, Canada, etc.

    I have a Benchmade 940-2 which is a great knife that disappears in your pocket (in a good way) and a Benchmade Barrage assisted open when I want something more substantial.

    Everyone can afford to spend a hundred bucks on a good quality knife if you don’t go for the more-stuff-is-better approach.

    Cheap knives fail. Buy a good one and make it last.

    Yep, I invested in a Griptilian as my everyday knife when Benchmade had a sale, wonderful piece of gear.

    2nd on the ontario rat 2, great knife for the price. I have a small collection of pricier knives, and my daily driver is the benchamde mini-bugout. I thought I wouldn't like it when I took it out of the box, but now its my go to knife (except when im at home and my microtech is around)
