    Cold Steel recon folders are nice, as are the pro lites. Clean edge is what I would recommend for defense only, if you are going to use it for any utility/work, then partial or full serrated would be more useful and hold its cutting edge better.

    the biggest difference in the 'brand name' knives is aesthetics. benchmade, spyderco, emerson, cold steel, what's the real difference? here's my 2 cents: first, find one that feels good in your hand. then, get something that you can afford to throw away or lose. if you can, get two of them (one for work and one for play). i personally like cold steel and crkt folders; they offer good knives for a good bargain. i could spend a lot more on, say, a strider, but then it would sit on a shelf, for fear of losing it. if you're shopping at a walmart, or gander mountain, they offer spyderco, cold steel, gerber, benchmade, and buck knives, all under $100. happy hunting!

    I currently only carry Spyderco knives. I have 2 Delecias and I recommend the combo edge. I also have a Mini Dyad that is my favorite knife ever and I'll be back to carrying it when I get my CHL. The Kiwi with jig bone handle is a strange but great looking knife and I like carrying it aswell.

    My friend had a Spyderco Dragonfly. For its size it has a great deal of cutting power. I have one Spyderco CoPilot and one Benchmade Mini Stryker for sale. Both were only carried for one week until I bought a Spyderco Delicia. PM me for pic'sand prices if interested.

    I carry an AL MAR, model shrike. Its an amazing knife, it has a vg-10 blade that is razor sharp, and g-10 scales that are like grippy. I looked for about 4 months for a knife I wanted to carry, benchmade, crkt, spyderco, among others and I just fell in love with the AL MAR. They are made in japan, and it has the feel of a hand made knife.

    When it comes down to "limits with budget" Spyderco wins out, very good bang for the buck.

    My favorite companies are Emerson, Spyderco and Benchmade. All quality products.

    My suggestion is: if you intend to use this for personal defense, get training first! It will teach you what you want and don't want in a knife.

    I Need a Knife

    For discreet situations I carry a Gerber Applegate folder. Comes with a nice belt pouch but unfolds into a BIG knife. I also keep a Victorinox in my pocket just for hard use chores etc. so the Gerber is intended only for defense. In the field or when I am carrying openly I have a T.O.P.S. "Battle Cry" in an extended belt sheath. Its an all-out fighting knife with micarta handles. I keep a magnesium fire starter in the pouch on the front of the sheath.

    SEBENZA! not cheap, but you get the Best!

    Benchmade and Boker are also OK.

    Just nothing like a Chris Reeve knife!!

    SOG Flash II

    Combo blade, safty lock, spring assist opening. I do have a few automatics, but the state of NY outlaws them so this is a nice compromise.
