    Hey all...

    I was looking around at pocket knives, and was interested in getting a decent quality one to carry every day. Must have a pocket clip, preferably metal as I've broken a lot of plastic clips. I don't want anything huge, but I have big hands so anything too small is out as well. I have a Schrade that I bought on clearance somewhere for a couple bucks and it's a good size, but I broke the clip off of it. It's around 3.5-4" closed and around 6.5-7" open.

    I've looked at several on ebay and other sites. I have a buddy that carries a spyderco and was wondering if those are good for durability. I see that the prices of the spyderco have a wide range, perhaps someone could recommend something in the area of $50 or so? Thanks in advance.

    It would be a state law. Here in Oregon it's legal to carry an automatic as long as it's not concealed. Not to condone anything illegal but I doubt you'd have a problem even if it was illegal in your state.

    Of course, there's plently of other options and I'm sure someone will reccomend somthing else :)

    no biggie. I was just wondering where I would begin to look for the legality of it. I don't plan on killing anyone with it, so you're probably right about it not being a problem... but it would be good information to have.

    lemme see, decent knives on the cheap

    The AK knife suggested above
    CRKT m16 series
    kershaw blackout
    cold steel (i like them, the two that i have have held up nicely despite absolute torture)
    Benchmade (griptillan is a big one)
    Gerber
    Spyderco (i've read nice reviews of the new Byrd series which are budget minded)

    I absolutely love my Benchmade Griptilians. Solid knife and the axis lock is one of the strongest available.

    I have put my Kershaw Blackout through ALOT and it hasn't failed me yet. I would like to get something a little nicer though. :o

    .............but for the price, I think it's a damn good knife.

    nice knife, but I'm far too careless to carry something that expensive. I've always carried cheap ass knives so if I left it laying somewhere I wouldn't be out much.

    I'm pretty pleased with it, expect some time playing around with it though to figure out the proper stroke to get it to open. I kinda had to train myself to push it back as I opened it.

    I just picked up a Kershaw blur @ walmart for $54. It's definately a kickass knife for the price.

    Is there a difference in the Endura and the Delica other than overall size? The endura sounds a little big to me, so I'm thinking the Delica is just about right.

    I snagged a Kershaw Leek at the gun show last weekend. Ken Onion designed. $43 after discount and tax.

    I carry one everyday, love it. If the budget is only $50 though I'd look at a Spyderco Endura. The Griptillian will run you $62-$75 depending on options.

    I'm high bidder on ebay right now for a Delica wave (a little smaller than the Endura). If I carry it for a year or so and like it, I might up the budget next year and buy something better.

    I'd say get a benchmade but since You listed 50 bucks as the ceiling I won't. Keep in mind they're very proud of their knives hence the price. :o They are worth it though.
