    I'll second the CRKT Large Kasper.
    "Cheaper than dirt" has them NOW for 30.00 bucks.
    Better than most custom $$$$$$ knives.
    Steel's not the best,but it will take an edge .
    I teach knife fighting and have a long background using edged weapons.
    Believe me,it'll be the best 30.00 bucks you ever spend.
    The knife is a TANK.
    The grip is the best.
    The design is the best."For fighting"
    I have the Carson Custom Kasper.500.00 knife as well.
    Liked it so much I bought several of the cheap ones as trainers/abusers.

    Two or more Kaspers?

    I understand there is a Large Kasper, but are there just two - a large and a small size? I very much appreciate the input.

    Since you are a teacher, let me also ask your opinion, on a fixed blade good choice in a 5 or 6 inch blade.

    Thanks.

    So many good knives.
    I think the Crawford Dragon is a top self defence knife IMO.
    A little shorter than your 5" to 6" requirements but at 4 1/2 it's plenty
    large and more concealable.
    The sheath is top-notch as well.
    Multiple carry opitions.
    Almost as important as the knife it's self.
    Dosen't do much good sitting in a drawer at home.
    At $350.00 it's a bargain IMO.

    I like the Benchmade 630 or a Buck Strider. I should also add Lone Wolf Knife Co. they makes some great folder that are pretty beefy.

    CRKT M-16-14T - http://www.crkt.com/m16titan.html. Funny story about how I ended up with this - apparently some Afghans had managed to get their hands on (i.e. steal) a shipment of goods destined for the PX at Bagram, and were selling a bunch of decent knives for very low prices. I know, I know, I was supporting the black market...but the knife has served me VERY well under some pretty adverse conditions. It is strong, light, holds an edge relatively well, and has done everything I've ever asked it to do, from opening MREs to prying crates open to skinning (roughly, but I'm a crappy skinner) some varmints I shot over there. And it's not prohibitively expensive even at non-black market prices!
    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I have alot of knife experience and own several of the brands listed. Spyderco are fine but I dont like the way they draw, Columbia River Casper is heavy. I like Emerson particularly the CQC-13 (but it is out of price range.)

    All that said- I cary a Benchmade almost every day, the Axis lock is a great system. The McHenry/Williams 710 is Teriffic, I have used mine for over 6 years. The 805 (Not sure of the series name) is closer to that $100 range. I have been brutal with mine and it is still like the day I bought it.

    I carry the following at work: Cold Steel XL Tanto Blade Voyager, 5" blade, CRKT M16-M14, 3.75" Tanto blade with secondary lock system, CRKT Crawford-Kasper folder w/LAWKS system 3.75" blade. For someone on a budget checkout the Kershaw Storm and Storm II with 3" and 3.5" blades respectively. Slim profile, textured grip, and available for about $35-$40. Can't beat that price.

    I like them all, Spyderco, Gerber, Kershaw, CRKT, Colt, Smith & Wesson and Buck. My son is testing the Benchmade. Here is a few.

    I have a Buck 110 that is well over 24 years old. Still guts a deer when I'm lucky enough to finish a stalk on one. However for duty and work, it's my Emerson CQC-7 and occasionally now my Spyderco Endura (WAVE). I am planning on buying a new Emerson AND Spyderco Delica (WAVE).

    Large folder. Hands down, the Spyderco Manix!

    Syderco or Benchmade are both excellent, IMO. Cold Steel also makes excellent knives.

    I have Benchmade and Buck knives.

    My constant carry off duty is the "Benchmade Mel Pardue Auto" but my utility knife while at work is a "Buck Crosslock" 38.00, it has a clip on the side, carries a 4 inch full serrated blade - flip it over and you have the same size in a drop point blade.

    Match the knife for the intended use and carry one you are comfortable with, the rest will fall right into place.

    I have not used this type of opening mechanism. Is it pretty quick to open and have ready for use?
