    I'm looking for a new EDC knife. My current EDC is a Spyderco Sage 1 in S30V which I love.
    I'm looking for something to carry while I have my Sage 1 serviced and as a interchangeable EDC with my Spyderco. I would get another Spyderco but I want something in a little different style.

    My criteria is
    • Budget $100 to $200
    • Blade length <4"
    • Weight under 4 oz.
    • Premium steel.
    • Pocket clip (reversible)
    • Flip or manual.
    I've narrowed it down to 3 choices so far. But I'm open to suggestions.
    Benchmade Mini Griptillion 555
    Benchmade Bugout
    Zero Tolerance 0450CF

    Thoughts? Suggestions? Comments? Open to brands and models.

    The handle on the Mini Grip is too small for me and I don't like the framelock used on ZT. The Bugout is close but instead of the Bugout, go with the similar Bailout. M4 steel. Blade length is about the same with a Tanto style, but the handle is slightly longer and fills the hand better. The handle is also slightly flared serving as a handguard. Under 3 oz.

    Street price is $150-$160

    They also make a version with aluminum handles, it sells for around $220, but the aluminum handles makes it a lot more sturdy.

    I have looked at the Sage 5 in Maximent. Supposedly an awesome steel.
    But it looks almost identical to my Sage 1. Looking to mix things up a bit.

    I like both knives. But again they look so similar. I like the Delica 4 because I can get dark Green handles. But it only comes in VG-10 steel. :(

    Knives for me fall into the same category as sunglasses:

    You can't ever find the nice ones when you need them, and somehow, you can't ever find a way to get rid of the cheap ones.

    They just discontinued the zdp189 delicas with british racing green frp scales. Though you may be able to find them second hand.
