Well, as it says in the title... I would appreciate some guidance on getting a nice new folder. My only guidelines are, -under $40 ideally. -Sharp(duh) but good sharp that will last. I don't have more than a stone to sharpen right now. -Standard ~3"-3.5" blade(sharp edge or tip to hinge) -Good grip area, I don't have large hands, they are just sort of thick. -Black, just like the look and conceals better. I would be open to dark greys too. -Main use would be counter attack/self defense but may cut rope and such in an emergency. Here's 2 that caught my eye http://www.amazon.com/Gerber-31-000372-Tanto-Knife-Serrated/dp/B002RIU3SW http://www.southwestgerberknives.co...-Knife-Tanto-Torch-II-G10-SE/flypage.tpl.html I'm not partial to Gerber, i actually have no preference. Thanks in advance for any help every one. EDIT: Assisted open, for quick deployment.
