So, my Kershaw leek broke about a month ago, and I haven't sent it back yet. I like the Buck Strider SBMF, but it's 420 stainless which seems like a lower quality steel than what you should get for a $60 knife. Anyone have any other suggestions for a medium/large folder for $50 to $75? I don't like the Griptillians, and I don't have easy access to Spydercos to try before I buy. I like the Kershaw Blur but I'm honestly hesitant to carry one after the 4-month lifespan of my leek.
Any ideas would be appreciated. I don't want a fixed blade, because Missouri law is gray about knives, and even a darker shade of gray about fixed blades. It needs to have a blade under 4", btw.
Any reviews/suggestions/ideas would be great! I'm carrying my Cold Steel Ti-Lite now, but it's not optimal since I carry a revolver in the front right pocket and the Ti-Lite is a Right Hand Only type knife. It actually sliced open my favorite pair of jeans the other day when it came open in my right hip pocket.
