Default Best sub 30$ edc knife?

Whats a good edc knife for under 30$ ? Preferably with a blade under 3 inches, good grip, and U.S. made( if thats not asking to much) I was looking at the Kershaw chill but its a little over 3 inches(not that big of a deal) and it does not seem like it has that good of a grip. If there aren't that many good knives in this price range, would it be better to just save my money and buy a Leatherman wave for edc?
Thanks

A bit over at $35, but a good deal IMO. slim enough for comfort in the pockets.

Even though spyderco is not my brand ( I prefer benchmade and Zero Tolerance) i would go with a striaght edge G10 Tenacious over a kershaw leek,not to say anything about the kershaw,bc it's a great knife and is an EDC for many people.

But I've never met a spyderco I didn't like,even if they didn't wow me. Can't say the same about kershaw. But that's just me,go with whichever you like the best,they will arguably be the same quality if purchased with comparable blade steel.

I just personally like the looks of the spyderco better.

Under $30..get a Kershaw.

Had one as a work knife, abused the living hell out of it for maybe 5-6 years, lasted me until someone stole it.

Ended up replacing it with a spyderco.... I'd rather have my Kershaw back.

The CRKT Ignitor fits your needs. Plus it's assisted opener.
