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

Good stuff for the price.

You didn't look at the Kershaw Leeks?:confused:

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 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.

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
