    I carry the Spyderco Native FRN. The blade is made from S30V steel, which is fairly hard and holds a good edge. The blade is longer than 3", so it won't be legal in some places. I find it relatively unobtrusive for general use, being large enough to be effective yet small enough to go unnoticed. Light. Strong. The large thumb hole and reversible clip allows for ambidextrous usage. (Important for a lefty!) I would purchase another. It's listed at $75, but you can find them for under $50.

    I have been considering a Benchmade 558-400 Griptilian ($107) but have not yet justified that it's significantly superior to the Native FRN.

    I've been carrying a Benchmade Griptillian with the modified sheepsfoot blade for the last few months and I really like it a lot. I think it was about $60-65 bucks on ebay.

    I am personally fond of CRKT knives. This one particularly. About $60.

    I like a Spiderco Delica. Don't bother with serrated edges (hard to sharpen), metal grips (slippery when wet), >3" (tough to stab and pull a long knife through meat), thumb stud (can be difficult to index in a hurry).
    Get one with a good locking system (frame lock), simple drop point design, pocket clip that can be repositioned for left or right side, high (belt) or low (edge of pocket) carry.
