    i like these two. bought them at Lowes. the bone looking handled one for about $12 and the black one for about $11. they are a brand called Appalachian Trail. they hold a good edge, sharpen fairly easy, and so far have stood up to the abuse i give knives on a daily basis.

    When did you buy that Bantam? It has a different handle than mine.

    They aren't bad knives, strong blade and handle on 'em, but the pocket clip leaves a little to be desired (kept coming loose) and the lock isn't very strong.

    It is hard to beat Kershaw pocket knives, especially the ones designed by Ken Onion. They have many styles under $50.00, and they are outstanding values at the price.

    I really like the cold steel knife I recently purchased. Its a good worker and if I have to jump the solenoid to start a piece of equipment I won't shed a tear.

    I'm a low-budget kind of guy, but appreciate well-built, highly utilitarian knives. That's why I carry the SOG Blink, a 25-dollar assisted opener that opens fast with one hand and carries flat. If my wife lets me keep a few dollars on payday, I use it as a money clip.

    My go-to knife is a Kershaw, Ken Onion designed, Shallot model 1840ST. All SS knife and made in the good ol USA!

    Got it NIB on the bay for $26+ship ~$30 total but I shopped for two weeks looking for the right auction.

    It is a one hand, assisted open knife. Fit and finish is +1 Kershaw quality.

    My cheap, EDC knife is a Duck DK0020 assist opening folder. Slim, decent weight, good pocket clip, and it has held up to the abuse I have put it through over the last 8 months. I picked it up for $28.50 at a Nevada truck stop during a trip back from Komifornia. It has ridden in my right pocket ever since. The picture is from the company's catalog, don't have any pictures of it myself, so I had to find one.

    Here's the larger kershaw one ton and the kershaw cryo. 20 and 30 dollars respectively. Both have 8cr13mov steel which can take a great edge. The cryo is assisted.

    Well, if its a Kershaw think, The WhirlWind and BlackOut are pretty nice.
