I'm usually a Case Trapper kind of guy, but lately my new favorite carry blade is my Kershaw Blue-Black Leek.

All Cold Steel, Ti-lite, RajahIII, Black Rhino. The black Rhino sold for over 250.00 but was put on sale for 64.00 when it was discontinued. I also have a Cold Steel Spartan that I got for less than 60.00 from a internet sale.
I'm partial to the Spyderco Native, a relatively small and stout blade that fits wonderfully well into my hand. It is made of S30V steel, under 3oz and about $70. And when painstakingly sharpened and honed, it's very effective. It is wonderfully tough and resistant to damage to the blade. While it doesn't offer quite the longevity of sharpness of some other choices, overall I think it's an excellent knife.
I really like my Spyderco Tenacious, but I love my Benchmade Harley-Davidson Osborne Folding Pocket Knife that I got for under $100. With a retail of $235, I would call that a smoking deal. It looks like this may be the last day on the sale, but they usually come back around. Sierra Trading Post is providing an additional VIP discount of 35% off of their already discounted price to get the cost down to $97.47 today.

$20 Wenger Swiss army knife with a locking blade. This knife has been used more than all of my other knives combined. (and no one looks at you funny when you pull one out at a party....try that with a survival knife)
I rotate my EDC knives when I think to do so, and I realized that I rely on, and prefer to carry, one or the other of my two Kershaw Leeks. Inexpensive, easy to open and use, and keep their edge nicely.
