    EDC Knife

    Not gun related, but the people in this forum are the ones that I want input from.

    I'm looking to purchase an every day carry knife. The purpose is utility and last line of defense. Budget is $150 or below, so I don't freak out if I lose it. I would prefer a folder over fixed blade, but I won't rule out a fixed. I don't mind picking up a used one from the Equipment Exchange forum on one of the larger sites out there, as long as it is in good condition, so feel free to recommend something above $150.

    Any suggestions?

    I like the Benchmade Mini Barrage.

    It is about the right size fornan EDC blade, with a good lock. I can also close it one handed with ease with little chance in cutting yourself.

    SOG Flash II is carried by several in this forum, myself included. Relatively cheap, very durable, very light, open assist and overall a great knife for the $$.

    For your budget you could buy two of them and have $$ left over.

    ill second the Flash 2. only downside is that i found is that the clip would allow it to slip off clothing easily. I wound some thin twine through the clip where it pinches on clothing. on the back side of this twine i soaked it in super glue to toughen it up. been about a year and a half of daily use since then with no issues with it. i also added a paracord lanyard, makes it alot easier to draw when in awkward positions.

    I had a CRKT that I carried every day (M16Z or something like that), I recently changed to a Gerber (unknown model). I have a limit of 3" blade that I can carry to work. You guys have any recommendations?

    Nice knives. Too bad they won't work for me as the blade is too long.
