    Check out RAT Cutlery although I think they just changed their name to ESEE. I have the RAT Izula and I am really pleased with it. It cost about $50 and I like it so much that I am saving up for an RC-4. They have a no questions ask warranty----that's if you were to ever need it.

    Go with a Ka-bar, seen a few from friends, bought a knock off one for 2 bucks off ebay. And I love the Tanto style partial serrated. (got it in all black) gave it away but good knife,

    SOG Seal Pup...I found one in Iraq once and I love it. The handle is grippy, even when wet, has good finger grooves also. Blade is durable as all get out, and takes/holds a good edge.

    I'm fond of the Ranger Knives Ready Detachment series. I'd think of it more as a 'survival' knife since I'd look for something very different in a SD knife, but for the price, you are getting a darn good knife with good steel. http://www.rangerknives.com

    I personally like this for a fixed blade in your price range.

    The 5 1/2" blade is a great medium sized tool, also. There is a nice kydex sheath for them, also.

    Just posted a thread for this....I have been researching, and I think the RAT cutlery RC-4 and RC-5 look just about ideal.

    I like the Ka-bar, but my most recent purchase seems to me as least as good- a glock, the only thing glock that I own.
