Last gunshow I bought a Marzitelli Prowler made by crkt. I paid $25 and was shocked at how nice it looks. The workmanship seems great. Opens smooth,locks tight, there's a second locking point, sharp and seems strong. I've been using it at work, camping and evryday carry. It's fairly big but carries small.
For anyone looking for a good knife on the cheap this should be high on the list.
