Sog Flash II, love it.(Wish I went with the aluminum handle instead of the composite, but thats an excuse to buy another one!)

I switch out knives a lot, I get tired of them very easily. This is by far my favorite

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lFjqzFusDRE

I picked it up for around 65.00 on ebay which is very fair for a Benchmade

nice, I bought the wife a pink mini grip at the gun show... profits benefited breast cancer

I've got two Benchmade autos... I've got a mini-reflex auto and an Infidel... the mini-reflex might be my favorite knife ever. I had one and lost it on a crew boat

So I bought another one and it just sits on my bedside table. I don't want anything to happen to it! LOL

both of my current Benchmades still have the factory edge on them.

I've been carrying my lone wolf auto for a couple years now. I like it because it looks/acts like a regular lockback, but it has a hidden button. And it's got a nice blade on it obv.

jwalk on here sells SOG stuff. if you are looking to get something from them he might be able to hook you up.

I have had the tip of 2 Kershaw Leeks break on me. I still like Kershaw in general but I a a little skeptical of their quality/durability.

My work knife is a Cold Steel Voyager tanto 1/2 serated and my 'nice' knife is a Kershaw K.O. w/ the same style blade. My pocket knife is a lil 3 blade Buck my Uncle gave me about 8 yrs ago.

I have a benchmade also. The army paid about $300 for it But, it's currently broken, and awaiting warranty repair (spring loaded, and the spring broke)

He said he wanted a decent knife, and and didnt want to break the bank. $300 is breaking the bank.

Looks like benchmade's prices have plumeted.

I priced the knife when I got it, and it was aout $320... now I'm seeing them at $200?

It's a Benchmade 5000, supposedly only available to "LE, and Military" I dont know about all that shit.

Benchmade AFCK with combo edge. I've had it over 10 years and it is the best knife in the history of ever.

I have a few Benchmades, an Auto and Balisong, and a few high end custom made knives, but the OP said without breaking the bank..
So without flexing nuts, and hell to some $200 for a carry knife may not be breaking the bank, a cheap $70 decent knife will work for me....

And yes Gerber sucks. I have had a couple that would not hold an edge for shit.
And sorry, I may get flamed for this, but I think SOG knives are pieces of shit. Most are made in Tawain and the one I owned was junk. I will take a Walmart Kershaw over a SOG any day....

A lot of people really like SOG knives. I had a flash II, the edge rolled on me, and I bent the blade. It's a finer edge knife, so you have to give and take on that issue. The assisted opening spring broke inside the knife too. I also thought the knife was a little bulky and hard to get out of my pocket at times due to the foam like handle. That knife is laying around somewhere.

I had two different Kershaw knives that the assisted opening broke on as well.

Dollar for dollar, they can't be beat. They're tough and if you lose it it's not a major loss like an Emerson would be.

I carry a simple little Buck knife. It holds an edge great and it was only $25 if I lose it or it breaks.

Cold Steel factory seconds and closeouts are usually pretty cheap and pretty good.

I carry a Byrd Cara Cara. You can pick one up for $45. Byrd is Spyderco and I was impressed with the quity for a lower priced knife. It feels as solid as the benchmade griptillians I was looking at.

I had a tanto blade before this one. It looked cool, but I found it of little practicle use for me.

Yes sir. I have gone through probably 3-4 of them over the years, but they only cost $14.99 at Fry's Electronics, so no biggie.
