    I am looking for a foldable knife under 2 inches. I need a small one just to carry around so i can cut stuff around the house and work. I had a benchmade benchmite a few years ago but that broke when I accidently left it in my pants and washed it in the washer.

    Right now i am carrying a benchmade 556 mini but its a bit too bulky. I want something flat and small. Recommend me something nice :x::x:

    I'm going to recommend something a little unorthodox for WMD, it's nothing fancy, but it's my daily carry and has been for about 6 years. Blade is ~ 2" (might be 2.25 :dunno: ) and has complete stainless construction.

    I carry the one with the marlin spike, it runs around $40, the one without the spike (I dont own one) is around $33. The reason I post the one without the spike is because it has the lock-back design and would be significantly smaller due to the absence of the spike. It's all steel, incredibly well made, and the sheepsfoots blade is very easy to sharpen due to it not having a curve. I have to sharpen it every other week and can be honed to a razors edge with a spyderco sharpmaker pretty easily. Believe it or not, the spike comes in handy frequently and prefer having it on there. I also ground off the lanyard hook, to me it was cumbersome: quick easy work with a dremel tool. I also carry a benchmade AFO or a spyderco endura daily as well for bigger nasty tasks.

    .

    I currently carry a Kershaw Leek (1660) and love it because it's so thin and has the speedsafe assisted-opening, but it's bigger than the TS is looking for (about a 3" blade). I would seriously consider the Chive (1600) since it has the same assisted-opening feature if I was looking for a smaller pocket carry.

    I just went through this same thing. I ended up buying a little larger than planned crtk M16-01kz 3" because I love my other crkt so much. It's about the biggest I would go for edc but it works and it's cheap.

    Lots of people are like the minigriptillian on the higher end or the sog flash I for a little cheaper.

    I hate to pay to much for an edc knife I will lose. Look up nutnfancy on youtube

    A rigging knife? Not what I would carry. I used to carry one too right up until my thumbnail slipped out of the slot and I cut the shit out of my knuckle.

    My dad has a nice little kershaw he carries. Not sure what model. I run with either a Spyderco or a Benchmade.
