    My two nicer ones are a SOG tech bowie ~$200, and SOG seal pup (the one I carry anytime I camp, hike, etc.) ~$100. I've split firewood with my seal pup using one branch to hammer in the knife and split logs...
    Love both, and I take care of them as much as I take care of my truck.
    My everyday carry is a buck rush and spyder co. small key chain thing
    The buck rush is nice because I can beat it to hell and it is only ~$60, and is spring assist.
    the spyder co one is nice because it is extremely sharp and small, so is nice for splinters and precision stuff.

    I was with my uncle last year at the SCI convention in vegas and watched him spend $600 on a hand made amber handled knife from south africa. By far the most beautiful knife I have ever seen!

    Spent about $125 on a Case, sharpened the blade and widdled down too much to sharpen anymore and bought another one for about the same. Lasted 5 years so I think I got my moneys worth, skinned countless deer and hogs with it.
