In the market..
I'm looking at purchasing a fixed blade knife for SD. From what I've read, in my state, I can have up to a 5" blade, but I quite often in MN (right across the river), and that law is 3" (from what I read). That means, I'm going to stick to a 3" fixed blade knife.
I've looked at the Spyderco knives, but don't seem to care for the style of them.
Any opinions on this knife: HERE
Not sure how possible this is, but what's the chances I'd find a sheath that would hook parallel to my belt?
Any suggestions? Single or Double edge (I believe both are legal in the states I frequently visit).
EDIT: Just read that MN knife length is 5". So, I will settle with anything under 5". Preferably 3.5" max for EDC.

Make sure about the double-edge. If the two states prohibit daggers or dirks, double edge is out, no matter what other name it goes by.

Might want to check out RAT Cutlery's Izula.
Looks like a very nice little EDC knife. Considering it myself.

My recommendation would be the Blackhawk Kalista. With respect to SD as important as the knife is the options for carry. The options with the Kalista are numerous and can accommodate just about any carry method your attired and activity warrant.
