    I know absolutely nothing about pocket knives. I like to carry one just for cutting stuff and I know how to sharpen them, but that is where my knowledge ends. I am looking for a 3" - 3 1/2" single blade folding pocket knife in the below 40.00 range. Is there any out there worth getting?
    Thanks for the help,
    Rich

    Keep it timeless and durable with a Case pocket knife. they are collectors pieces and are always sought after, at least down here in the south. i love them. good everyday knife for whatever. but its up to you. do you like traditional or tactical? belt clips or no clips. my personal favorite is a Case Trapper. they have been around forever, but can get pricey.

    the age old debate, haha you're going to get opinions from everyone and all different ones, all i can say is get the most reviews you can and then go on looks and size, what ever is to your preference

    now personally i have a crkt m16-10kz [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I actually bought 2 knives I purchased the M16-10z and a regular CRKT Ryan Seven. Amazon has some pretty good deals on these right now. I got both knives for ~41.00.

    I've had 3 or 4 of the CRKT M16s- the older ones without the little red safety lock buttons are better. Steel's pretty soft, in comparison to the SOG Twitch I carry now.

    my custom direware solo is my favorite edc blade. i like them big enough to carry and built like a tank.

    my second choice would be a strider sng or a zero tolerance 0350 or 0300.

    This is true... But Benchmade is gonna last you a lot longer than $40.
    The only I have has lasted me two deployments to Afghanistan. And they have a life time warranty and you can send them in to have them sharpened.

    My unit had some funds to spend prior to end of year and we got these. I never was much of a knife guy until then. I really like this knife. Benchmade CPM-M4

    What ever you go with shop ebay first. But COLD STEEL gets my vote. I beat the hell out of mine without fail.
