    Same question, new twist

    I have searched through several threads on here about knife suggestions and reccomendations. Well, I am looking for some suggestions and reccomendations for a new pocket knife also. Here is the catch. I have a $20 gift card to Bass Pro, and have to return an item that cost around $35, so I will have around $55 to spend on it. The knife has to come from Bass Pro. I have a few other requirements too. It has to have a pocket clip, and has to be either assisted open or very easy to open with one hand. I am looking for something other than the assisted open Kershaws.

    I have been looking at a few different ones, and would like your opinion on them and even suggestions on others that are available from Bass Pro. I am willing to spend a little over the $55 so that isn't a firm amount.

    Here are the ones I have been eyeing:
    Benchmade Mini Ambush
    Buck Impulse
    Cold Steel Mini Lawman
    Buck Rush
    SOG Flash I
    SOG Twitch II

    I'd go with the SOG Trident & it's available at Bass Pro.

    +1 on SOG.

    Good stuff for the price.
    That which does not kill us leaves us broken and bleeding...

    Donít mess with the guy who can barely stand up. His remaining options for self-defense don't include your survival.

    You didn't look at the Kershaw Leeks?
    The last Blood Moon Tetrad for this millennium starts in April 2014 and ends in September 2015...according to NASA.

    Sog Twitch II is a great choice. Holds an edge and you can even double lock it if you feel the need. Big enough for most things you will ever need it to do.

    I have a few kershaws already. I like them to an extent. My main complaint is the pocket clips on them will never stay tight. I am constantly losing screws out of the clips. Even after removing them and applying locktite they still work their way out. That, plus I wanted to give a new brand a try.

    I own about 50 knives and my best is the SOG. I like that it keeps its edge and feels nice in hand. I suggest finding the one that just feels right to you.

    I carry a SOG Flash 1 every day. Great little knife.
    Mine is converted to "triple action" A/O or automatic.

    I also like my SOGs, but find them a bit thick for carry with business attire. If you wear jeans/short, I say go for it. Otherwise, put a premium on thickness.

    The Flash 1 is 3/8" thick-extremely thin.

    I also would suggest a SOG Trident. I use mine for all duties and it holds an edge well.

    Buck Rush

    I had a Buck Rush. It's very easy to open one-handed, and it's easy to find a place to carry it with the clip. I don't recall anything about it that would lead me to discourage a recommendation. $60
