    Probably either going to go with a Cold Steel Recon 1 Tanto 4" Plain Blade, G10 Handles - Knifecenter.com or a Cold Steel Large Voyager VG-1 4" Tanto Blade Plain Edge Metal Clip - Knifecenter.com. Haven't quite decided yet. I would really like the recon but I don't really want to wait for it to become available.

    If Assisted Openers are legal in your state, I recommend either the Kershaw "Blur" or the Sog "Aegis."

    After swearing I would never switch from my Ken Onion Kershaw, I did.

    I was at the Benchmade booth at the NRA convention and the guy showed me a 580SBK, and I had to have one.

    Absolutely the slickest assisted opening knife I have ever tried.

    It's a little over your budget but, you deserve the best.

    Mine cost me about $150CDN delivered.

    Here are some of links for you.......................

    Can't go wrong with Benchmade. I usually carry a 710 Axis Lock or Microtech Manual Socom Elite, even though they're not assisted openers, and as I stated before, I also like the Kershaw Blur or the Sog Aegis too. They're all great knives.

    I am not a knife guy. I carry either a 2 3/4" lockback Buck for work or a 3 3/4" Kershaw assisted opener liner lock for casual. I caught your comment above and would ne interested in learning more about why you feel the liner locks are a bad idea. I am not challenging you but would like to learn more about knives and I suspect you have a food reason for your comment. I am nor that enamored with the Kershaw as it opens too easily - sometimes on it's own.

    I love all my knives, Gave a s&w homeland security to my goof ladyfriend in florida for her to keep that was a good knife after I locktighted the thumbstud. Current edc blade is an ontario R.A.T. model 1 black on black. And augmented with a leatherman wave that has a couple of blades on it though it is not exactly fast deploy. But love the ontario knife lightning fast deploy,good blade steel (aus8) semi aggressive jimping(sp?) and finger trap in-case of a thrust cut. razor sharp even after a few months of use and accidental thumb slices (yeah I'm a klutz sometimes) but overall great blade. Not so scary that you will weird out people if you have to use it in a store or out in public.

    my 2 shiny pennies or dull ones maybe

    Why would you want a slide or button on a combat knife? A liner lock is much less likely to get moved during a fight IMHO.

    Yes a fixed blade is optimum and one of my carry knives is a fixed blade push knife that is legal to carry in Texas, a Cold Steel Safe Maker III.

    I would much rather carry a liner lock knife than any knife with a slide lock.

    I guess I don't understand your hate of liner locks

    It is too easy for a liner lock to unlock and allow the blade to close, when your fingers are gripping the knife tightly and they move (such as when the knife is cutting). So basically while cutting, slashing, or stabbing, your fingers can depress the lock and have the blade come down on them.
    Gun control can be blamed in part for allowing 9/11 to happen.

    I really like the Triad lock on the ColdSteel Spartan (and apparently on some other models but I don't own those.)

    The only complaint I ever had about that lock is that it is a bit difficult (at first) to UNLOCK when you mean to do so.

    My defensive knives with liner locks take two hands to close, and a hard edge such as a tip of a finger or nail to provide pressure sufficient to unlock the mechanism. I wonder if you have only been exposed to inexpensive liner locks. CRKT knives have a secondary lock on the blade, the newer of which automatically engage the secondary lock so they become virtually a fixed blade.
