Kershaw Skyline. It's a great folder for EDC use and yet very affordable.

Super lightweight, reliable, easy to operate, ergonomical, safe to use, great blade size and form, and so cheap it's almost disposable.

A great first knife to see what you like about it and later on maybe spend more on something else.

u/ANAL_PLUNDERING · 11 pointsr/knives

No problem.

Kershaw Scallion (Small, assisted opening, steel is not so great)

Kershaw Skyline (good size, G10, nice blade shape, steel can get to a crazy level of sharpness)

Kershaw OSO Sweet (pretty cool assisted opener, great price there on amazon)

Spyderco Tenacious (same decent steel on the OSO Sweet and Byrd, good G10, good blade shape, Spyderco quality, great value)

Byrd Cara2 (Great value, overseas production brings prices way down on all Byrd knives)


Here is one above your price range

And one below your price range

u/Tadashi047 · 10 pointsr/knives

Although the Instant is an alright knife, I believe that it is overpriced at $40 with a blade of 7Cr17Mov steel.

Kershaw Clash is about 20 bucks, made with better steel (8CR13MOV), assisted opening and also has lifetime warranty.

Kershaw Skyline at the price range of $35 has better steel (14C28N) than the Clash, assisted opening and the same warranty.

Fixed your link

I hope I didn't jump the gun, but you got your link syntax backward! Don't worry bro, I fixed it, have an upvote!

u/HilariousMax · 10 pointsr/knives
  • ~$7-8 Sanrenmu 7010/710 - You can find these at Gearbest for cheap as hell when they have sales but they're absolutely $30 worth of knife
  • ~$10-20 Opinel no.6-12 - Depends on blade size/steel/handle wood. #6 is under 3in blade if that kind of thing matters.
  • ~$20 CRKT Drifter
  • ~$20 Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara2
  • ~$20-25 Ontario Rat II or Rat I
  • ~$30 Victorinox Cadet Alox
  • ~$30 Kershaw Cryo
  • ~$35 CRKT Ripple
  • ~$35 Spyderco Persistence
  • ~$40 Kershaw Skyline - Often on sale in the ~$30 range
  • ~$40 Kershaw Leek - Same sales as with the Skyline \^^

    Honorable Mention: Case knives. Traditional lockbacks. Hard as nails and pretty to boot. True pocket knives. Your grandfather (possibly great grandfather) had one. Good stuff the lot of them. $25-50 will get you a legacy knife that you can carry and use and then pass to your kid.

    You don't need to spend $200 to get a quality, durable, reliable knife. I've owned all of these knives at one time or another and loved every one of them. Sure they needed sharpening more often and sometimes something a little more drastic (Sanrenmus are often cheaper to replace than fix) but the value is insane. Plus, lets face facts; we're much more likely to break out our Cadet when we get box duty than our Sebenza.

    Knife enthusiasts (brothers) if there's a weighed and measured cheapo that I forgot, let me know.
u/PapaShane · 8 pointsr/EDC

If you have a few bucks lying around, the easiest way to answer this question is to have you buy a decent knife and see for yourself how much better it is. For a nice folder in your size range, the Ontario Rat1 would be a nice start...it's only $25 (which is a very low price for a quality knife), its 3.5" blade is big enough to do most things you'll need it to do while also being legal to carry almost everywhere (in the US), it's supposed to have a buttery smooth pivot action, and it has a decent blade steel (AUS-8) as opposed to the who-knows-what in a typical gas station knife. And yes, the steel alloy does make a lot of difference, a good blade will hold a sharp edge for longer, be tough enough to withstand some abuse, be flexible enough that it doesn't shatter easily, and unlike crap "stainless" steel it will actually remain rust-free under reasonable conditions. The heat treatment of the blade also contributes to these traits, and I can guarantee that Ontario does a better heat-treat than whoever made your $7 gas station knife...which probably didn't receive any treatment. If the Rat1 isn't your style, Kershaw makes a bunch of budget-friendly (~$30) knives that are also pretty highly regarded, something like the Cryo which has spring-assisted opening or the very sexy Skyline which isn't assisted opening. And if those aren't to your liking, then Spyderco makes a couple budget folders, one of them being the Resilience which has a bigger 4.25" blade and nice G10 handles, you may like that one for the bigger size. Might wanna check the legality in your area though...

So yeah, apart from working better, a nice knife also has a much smaller chance of failing and cutting off your finger, which is the main reason that I cringe a little bit when people use bad knives...I just don't want to see someone who doesn't know any better get hurt by a knife they thought would work fine. Unfortunately, I do see plenty of knives like that around r/EDC, but maybe I just hang out in /r/knives too much.

u/Duke_Spanks · 7 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I've owned the Kershaw G10 Hawk ($15) and the Kershaw Skyline ($34).

Both are nice knives, I consider the G10 an excellent light use knife because it is is light and small. The thumb stud is hard to get purchase on, I took a file and cut a groove in the handle so I could get at it easier, very easy to do.

The Skyline is similar, larger blade, they'll sharpen it for you if you mail it in (I think for free, besides postage), no steel liners in the handle, very easy to open (flipper).

u/PhenomenalDouche · 7 pointsr/knifeclub

Expected but icky answer: Kershaw Skyline (two words: butter knife)

Good answer: any of a million or so inexpensive CRKT flippers with IKBS, like the odd-looking but fantastic Ikoma Carajas.

Best answer that I know of currently: save $14.89 more and buy a Kizer 3404, then thank me later.

Bonus option I've-never-tried-but-will-at-some-point: a Russian Kizlyar Supreme Biker Z

u/lepermessiah57 · 7 pointsr/cigars

Spyderco, Kershaw, benchmade are all quality knives with kershaw being on the lower end. For an every day carry, I love my kershaw skyline, http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-Skyline-Knife-Textured-Handle/dp/B001CZBDF8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1408630557&sr=8-1&keywords=kershaw+skyline

It's relatively cheap, good blade style, light, solid steel.

u/ZombieKingKong · 7 pointsr/EDC

get something not so expensive for your first knife. Here's why:

-Get used to it. Carrying it around, deploy and fold, cut fruit at work with it (see your co-worker's faces when you pull it out). Doing this will let you get use to having one (unfortunately, you will probably lose it).

-Use the shit out of it. cut paper, cardboard, pencils, test it out on thin twigs, branches etc.

-Sharpen it. I don't mean with some cheap easy way of doing it like with a sharpmaker; use a sharpening stone, learn the angles.

-Learn to respect it. No matter how careful you think you are, you will eventually cut yourself doing something you feel is the safe way. You will have a new appreciation for this knife.

I recommend either of these knives (learn the different ways knives can be deployed) http://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tenacious-Handle-Folding-Plain/dp/B001EI7578/ thumb hole deployment

http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-1660-Onion-Folding-SpeedSafe/dp/B0009VC9Y0 - speedsafe

http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-Skyline-Knife-Textured-Handle/dp/B001CZBDF8 - flip

Find how the knives also carry in your pocket (left pocket, right pocket, tip up or tip down).

These should be your first steps into getting and owning your first folding knife.

u/Zak · 6 pointsr/EDC
u/NoRedditAtWork · 6 pointsr/knifeclub

Clearing things up a bit here, what folks are trying to do is:

A) Not be rude and say that's a garbage knife. The Golden Rule of Knives as far as I'm concerned is that the best knife you have is the one you have on you when you need it. If you have nothing else - high five - that'll do.

B) If you like the skull pattern and whatnot, that's awesome - whatever floats your boat. Most knives you'll see posted here aren't as gaudy or 'mall ninja' (see /r/mallninjashit for an idea of what that means). Knives like that though generally tend to be cheap in both the materials used and the QC for the finished product.

C) There are much better knives you could purchase for $35. Where did you even find that for $35? I wasn't able to find it on Amazon for that price and, relative to what I was seeing listed there, that knife should be ~<$20.

The Spyderco Tenacious is $35 from Amazon right now and is a great starting knife. Some options from Kershaw include the Leek, Skyline or a variety of other models. Someone also mentioned the Ontario Rat 1 which I don't have experience with myself, but is a widely loved knife at the price point. You can also check the $0-100 suggested knife guide for more options.

TL;DR: I don't want to make you feel bad for having that knife, but the $35 could have gotten you better steel, ergonomics and end product quality spent elsewhere.

u/you-down-with-CIP · 5 pointsr/TheBrewery

Been pretty happy with Kershaw knives as my everyday carry; using the Kershaw Skyline at the moment and it's lasted a few years with minimal maintenance.

Stopped carrying multi-tools in the brewery a long time ago. They weigh a ton, cost a lot, and are usually a poor substitute for the tool I really need. If I really need a pair of pliers/screwdriver/wire stripper, I just walk my happy ass over to the tool chest and get the right tool for the job.

u/listen2 · 5 pointsr/knives

http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-Skyline-Knife-Textured-Handle/dp/B001CZBDF8/

A little more than your gift card, but it's worth it. Well worth it.

u/Silverlight42 · 5 pointsr/lifehacks

there's some good stuff in there.


I'd like to add a couple that aren't so well known.

You can actually heat up the plastic water bottles it mentions right on your campfire coals... it's not going to melt, surprisingly.

video


also for clothing, I like they mentioned wool -- really great even if it gets wet... but they didn't mention layers. This is important. You don't want to sweat when it's cold out, so if you're active you gotta shed some layers.


also use your spare grocery bags from home to wrap everything up in, especially clothes... just in case things get wet.


oh and silicone spray is great for water repellent, be it your jacket, boots or tent. Don't buy the "special water repellent stuff", it's just silicone spray. You'll save a couple bucks.


As far as hatchets/knives... you don't need anything big. You might think you do but you really don't. I would recommend a good brand like Benchmade or Kershaw. A regular pocket knife like that is gonna do all you need -- just don't use it as a prybar please.



oh and hobo stoves are pretty cool.

so is a rocket stove -- though the one here is kinda elaborate -- you can dig a hole in the ground and accomplish the same thing you just need the basic shape, airflow. really low fuel and insane concentrated heat from them.


oh and a hoopy frood always knows where his towel's at.

Kershaw skyline
http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-Skyline-Knife-Textured-Handle/dp/B001CZBDF8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1411072014&sr=8-1&keywords=kershaw+skyline

Kershaw chill
http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-3410-Chill-Pocket-Knife/dp/B002IVHQ5Q/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1411072014&sr=8-2&keywords=kershaw+skyline

Both are great edc knives. Chill is small but tough (not tiny though) perfect if you work in an office.
Skyline is a great overall. My work edc.

Buy 2 of either one, if you manage to break one you have a backup while the factory fixes the other.

u/TheStuffle · 4 pointsr/knives

Kershaw Skyline

Perfect fit. Awesome knife.

u/greath · 4 pointsr/knifeclub

Lol, alright for example:

  • Spyderco Delica 4 FFG: For your price range this is going to be the "best" steel you can get in a near 3" folding knife (VG-10). By best I mean the best edge retention in a stainless steel. However, being over 2.5" in some places (Chacago for example) the knife will be illegal. Also, many people do not like the look of the spyderhole as it can be seen as aggressive in office environments. Also the FRN handles, while very strong, have a cheap/plastic feel to them.

  • Spyderco Tenacious: Compared to the Delica, 8CR13MOV is a "worse" stainless steel (not as good edge retention, more prone to chipping during heavy impacts). However, the extra blade length is better for many outdoor tasks (breaking down tree branches). The handle is also G10, which is slightly tougher and has a much better feeling in hand than FRN.

  • Spyderco Centofante 3: A more "gentlemanly" and "office friendly" version of the Delica with a slightly longer blade. Again, VG-10 and FRN.

  • Kershaw Cryo II: Same steel as the tenacious. Metal handles slightly tougher than G10. Flipper action has "cool" factor. The blade grind makes the tip a touch stronger than on the tenacious.

  • Kershaw Skyline: One of the most iconic of Kershaw's knives. Hollow ground blade makes it great at slicing tasks.

  • Esee Izula: Skeletonized fixed blade. 1095 Steel is significantly better than the other steels listed at "chopping" tasks as it is not prone to chipping at all. It is NOT stainless and so the blade has a protective coating over most of it. The steel will require mineral oil/cleaning to prevent rusting.

  • Becker BK 24: Similar to the Esee Izula but D2 steel which has better edge retention and more corrosion resistance than 1095. It is also much harder to sharpen. Many think the BK24's handle is also less comfortable, the sheath is worse, and there are less available after market modifications.

  • Ontario Rat Series (linked the RAT I. RAT 2 similar but smaller): Ontario's version of the tenacious. Bladeshape generally more people friendly. Another very popular beater option.

  • Morakniv Knives (there are MANY, this is just one): Highly regarded in the "bushcraft" community. High carbon steel (similar to 1095) with a scandi-grind which is great for field sharpening and woodworking. Only partial tangs so not advised to use for battoning tasks or chopping.

  • Kershaw OD-2: Gentlemanly knife with great flipping action.

    There are a LOT more suggestions I could add...
u/SuperiorRobot · 3 pointsr/guns

Put nothing in the stocking. Only put things in molle attached pockets. Mags, ammo, and a decent knife could easily get you to $150.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CZBDF8/

I bought this recently and really like it.

u/LefseBL · 3 pointsr/EDC

Just to throw another idea out there: Kershaw Skyline. It's not spring assisted, but it's bound to be more reliable, and it's right around your price range. Made in America, too.

http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-Skyline-Knife-Textured-Handle/dp/B001CZBDF8/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1367987908&sr=8-1&keywords=kershaw+skyline

u/voraidicon · 3 pointsr/knives

The SOG Flash 1 is spring assisted. It is a kickass blade and extremely lightweight. Around $35.


Then there is the Benchmade Emissary 470. Just a brilliant, brilliant blade. Practically sexy. $160-ish though, so I'll never have one in my pocket.



I just did a huge amount of research and decided against the spring assist. I like the super fast deployment, a lot; however, I found that many knives deploy just as fast because they are made so damn well. I just picked up the Kershaw Skyline 1760 for $35 and it is awesome. Spring assists have more parts to break, and more parts mean higher manufacturing costs.


Notable mention, the Kershaw Chill for about $16 most places.


Sorry for the amazon links, they are just easy to find. Also, I am new to this game so wait for some constructive criticism from more experienced users about my recommendations. And finally check some youtube reviews, I trust nutnfancy's reviews all day.

u/free2game · 3 pointsr/knives

If you go up to $30-40 you can find a lot of great american made knives in that range like a Kershaw Skyline ($35), Salvo ($30), or Buck 110 Paperstone ($30) Classic ($35), Vantage Avid ($34)
BTW, a good pocket clip shouldn't be uncomfortable in your hand. None of the pocket knives I've owned have dug into my hand at all. The Buck is a nice option if you don't want a clip though.

u/skipsmagee · 3 pointsr/knives

Seconded. I just retired my M16 combo tanto because the handle is uncomfortable, boxy, and thick; and the blade angles are weird and very hard to sharpen well. For $35, I recommend the Kershaw Skyline (the same length as the M16, here it is in orange) or Scallion. I haven't had a Tenacious, and it seems large for my tastes, but for Spyderco a Dragonfly ($45) is next on my list.

u/pologreen94 · 3 pointsr/EDC
u/BatteryLicker · 3 pointsr/Ultralight

Kershaw Skyline is an affordable option.

u/grumblegeek · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

The items I can think of right now that I've bought pretty much because of this subreddit:

  1. Zojirushi Travel mug - I use this as my office coffee mug. I fill it up in the morning and if I get sidetracked then it's still hot hours later.

  2. Saddleback Pocket ID Wallet - simple and gets the job done

  3. Weber One-Touch Gold Charcoal Grill - I love this grill.

  4. Red Wing Iron Ranger 8111 (amber color) - the first 3 weeks I thought I made a huge mistake but now they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.

  5. Fisher Space Pen - I've had to stop other people from pocketing it. My wife tried to take it because she likes the way it writes.

  6. [Kershaw Skyline Knife] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CZBDF8) - I'm not into putting a lot of money into a pocketknife so this fits the bill nicely.

  7. ToiletTree Heavy Duty Nose and Facial Hair Trimmer - my previous nose trimmers felt like it was ripping the hair out by the root. This one I don't feel anything and it's very well made

    All of these I would buy again.
u/ndog14 · 3 pointsr/CCW

Kershaw Skyline is one of the best knives for the money.

u/[deleted] · 3 pointsr/oddlysatisfying

The civilian retails about $150.

CRKT makes some more inexpensive knives, also Kershaw.

Check out the Kershaw Skyline, it's inexpensive and very popular.

u/ThisTrainHasNoBreaks · 3 pointsr/Portland

Try this. I carry one everyday. Made right here in Tualatin, Oregon. Besides, it's a good tool to have on you anyway.

u/fergusonwallace · 3 pointsr/knives

Firstly, you are in luck! The specs you listed are all available in one of my ALL TIME favorite knives. The Kershaw Skyline (video) is the finest EDC knife I've ever owned. Extremely light. Blade shape is perfect and thin... hollow ground. The grip is spectacular and you owe it to yourself to buy it. Oh, and the flipper is just perfect. Trust me you won't go wrong here. I keep mine shave sharp and it is simply a blast to own. You get used to the aesthetics. Check the reviews from amazon linked above.

u/Aznguy1 · 3 pointsr/knives

Kershaw Skyline is pretty nice if you want a g-10 handle and it's US made but it is 3 1/8" long

Kershaw Cryo is pretty nice and it's 2 3/4" long

u/Ltkeklulz · 2 pointsr/gadgets

Also, Kershaw Skyline for ~$40. It's my current EDC

u/ThatFatKidVince · 2 pointsr/offmychest

Same here, I carry my Kershaw Skyline with me wherever I go and it comes in handy at almost every day

u/hughmungus2016 · 2 pointsr/EDC

u/ActualRealAccount · 2 pointsr/backpacking

I bicycle tour, but it is almost the same.

Kershaw Skyline awesome little knife for a great price!

u/yertle_the_squirtle · 2 pointsr/knives

Have you ever tried flippers? The Kershaw Skyline
can be had for around 40 bucks and also has the incredible attention to detail find on the usa made Kershaws.

It's not assisted but it'll open just as easily with one finger and because there's no spring to push back it's also easier to close one handed.

u/teraquendya · 2 pointsr/knives

I got a Kershaw Skyline. Great knife. Opens with index finger too. Super light, very good grip and an excellent blade.

u/ciridan · 2 pointsr/knives

I can't speak to the quality of the Ontario, but I made the switch to the Skyline from a SOG Flash II and the reduction in weight was great. I have the base Skyline in 14c28N and it's a workhorse for the size.

The flipper by itself is enough to warrant buying one.

u/ARKnife · 2 pointsr/BudgetBlades

I'd suggest:

Ganzo G753M1

Cold Steel Tuff Lite

Kershaw Skyline

Or the already mentioned Ontario RAT 2.

u/knowhatimsayin · 2 pointsr/EDC

I've been thinking about getting an edc pocket knife. Is the manix 2 really worth the extra 60 compared to something like this kershaw? I'm about to start researching myself, but you seem pretty knowledgeable.

u/blueriderbacks · 2 pointsr/knifeclub

Just to add a few more that fall well under budget and are still awesome.

u/bly2425 · 2 pointsr/malefashionadvice

What kind of tasks do you perform with your knife mostly? Budget? If you can be more specific I can give more tailored recommendations, but for now the failsafe answer would be the Chris Reeve Sebenza, but it might be out of your budget range. For an entry level pocket knife that's understated and high quality, the Kershaw Skyline is your best bet.

u/NickLynch · 2 pointsr/guns

I had a Leek, but lost it. I replaced it with a Camilus Blaze, and was happy, but it was a bit fat. When I lost that one, I picked up a Kershaw Skyline (In December). It's now my favorite knife so far. It's not assisted, but it's very smooth. It's every bit as quick as my Leek and Blaze were. It has G10 handles, which I love, it's still sharp, despite my box cutting abuse for the last few months, and it's super light weight.

u/mrtiro · 2 pointsr/EDC

Have you looked at the [Kershaw Skyline] ( http://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-Skyline-Knife-Textured-Handle/dp/B001CZBDF8)? It seems fit all of you criteria at $35.

u/haidret · 2 pointsr/EDC

From left, clockwise: Moleskine notebook, glasses, 8 gig iTouch, BIC pen, keys with Swiss Tech multi tool minus the light, Timex expedition, Samsung piece-of-crap phone, Kershaw Skyline, picture sleeve from my wallet converted to cash and card holder.

u/mavriksin · 2 pointsr/knives

I love my Kershaw Skyline. It opens incredibly quickly once you get used to the flipper, holds a good edge, and I have never once lost my grip on the handle. I would recommend this blade to anyone.

u/Sengura · 2 pointsr/knives

Twitch II is good.

So is the Skyline

But my favorite is still the Tenacious. What an awesome EDC knife that sucker is. The metal may not be the best, but it makes up for it in durability and it's so easy to sharpen. The knife is of excellent quality and for less than 30$. If you want a smaller blade, get the Persistence (I wouldn't, the Tenacious is the perfect size for me).

u/7thton · 2 pointsr/knives

For day to day stuff, I think a folding knife is more than enough. Multitools are heavy and I wouldn't want to have to lug it around all day on my belt or in my pocket.

As far as recommendations go, you can buy a very nice folding knife for under 50. A lot of people here are going to recommend Spyderco knives, but keep in mind that they are much bigger than other folders in terms of height. (To be more clear, they are not heavier than other knives or necessarily have a longer or thicker blade or handle, but the blades are very wide and that translates to it taking much more room in your pocket.)

I would reccomend a Buck Nobleman. It is nothing fancy, but it has a nice wide blade, comes sharp, has a sturdy liner lock, and a good clip. You can remove the clip is you want. In my opinion, it is the best knife you can buy for 20 bucks.

I can also recommend the Kershaw Leek (this is an assisted opening knife, so research whether or not that is something you'd like) and the Kershaw Skyline.

If you want to spend a little more on a knife that will likely last you forever, from a company that has great customer service, I can recommend a Benchmade Mini-Griptilian.

u/TOUCHER_OF_SHEEP · 2 pointsr/EDC

Do you have a torx set of screwdrivers? If you do, you can take apart the knife and remove the torsion bar really easily- I did it with a Kershaw I carried for a while. If you don't like that idea, you can always get the insanely popular Kershaw Skyline.

u/Virisenox_ · 2 pointsr/EDC

Kershaw and Spyderco are good relatively cheap brands. If it's for EDC, the Kershaw Skyline might be a good fit.

u/IceColdCarnivore · 1 pointr/knifeclub

G-10 Kershaw Skyline for sure. Same price range, slightly smaller blade and almost half the weight.

u/middlefingur · 1 pointr/kershaw

This one's amazing for a smaller and super light every day carry for $21:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002IVHQ5Q/

And this one's a little beefier with u.s. made steel:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CZBDF8/

I have one of each and don't leave home without one of them.

edit: I carried a big one like yours for a while and then carried the Chill for a week and thought to myself "What the fuck was I thinking lugging that other thing around?"

The above knives are more than sharp enough for anything you're going to through at it unless you're into destroying knives :)

u/brundlfly · 1 pointr/EDC

In full disclosure I did just buy this knife for my EDC but since it's my first halfway decent pocket knife I don't want to waste the edge on cardboard if I don't have to.

u/BarlesChronson · 1 pointr/knives

I would consider something like the Kershaw Skyline. If you are expecting heavy use then i would pick up a decent sharpning kit such as the TRI-6 System.

That skyline does not have a partial serrated edge. I to enjoy a serrated edge for cutting rope and twine... however, that blade is 14C28N stainless steel and can maintain a very sharp edge with everyday use for quite some time and negates my need for a serrated edge.

Coupled with the tri-6 system you would have an awesome edc (every day carry) knife for a very long time.

Budget total: $60-$65 - free shipping for prime members

Edit: serrated edges are a pain to sharpen without the proper tools and know how

Hope this helps

u/Taboggan · 1 pointr/knifeclub

I would get something a little cheaper like a:

u/glowingdark · 1 pointr/knives

A Kershaw Skyline. You should be able to find a Skyline for ~$42 online (Amazon).

Or as others have suggested, the Kershaw Leek.

Possibly an H&K Pika ~$30 (Amazon)

u/Jsmalley9 · 1 pointr/EDCexchange

Kershaw Skyline (Amazon)

It's a few dollars over your budget but it's worth every penny. Lightweight, won't weigh your pocket down, great blade shape. Can't recommend it enough.

u/freeshavocadew · 1 pointr/knives

5 knives

Above is a link to 5 folding knives that may or may not fit what you're looking for and 4 are well within your price range of under $120. One is slightly above at 139.00 on Amazon, but the Chrome extension called Honey is currently allowing a $10 discount. All are made by Kershaw/ZT.

  1. The ZT 0350 is the top knife with the curvy ergonomics to it. It's probably the most basic ZT folder and is currently the only ZT knife I own. It is good for larger hands, it's very sturdy (and heavy) and technically more than $120 but only barely.

  2. The Kershaw Fatback is next to it and has a more triangular appearance. Relatively newer offering from Kershaw, I think, but is certainly proving to be popular. It's as long when closed as the ZT 0350 but is thicker from one scale to the other on the handle AND is lighter. The actual specs for this and all the knives mentioned can be found by Googling them. This knife is currently under $25.

  3. The Kershaw Skyline is probably the most well known knife, I wouldn't be surprised is this has its own lore here on r/knives. It's popular for a reason being lightweight, and well tested as an older, mainstay model from Kershaw. As you can see, mine is showing wear and scratches compared to the other knives! Amazon is currently listing the basic version of this knife for $46.

  4. The next one is the Kershaw OD-1 which is DISCONTINUED. I didn't know this when I took a photo of it for you and started this list. This means the price is higher than you'd pay normally and isn't really available on Amazon or in stores. You can find it on the link provided (I think) which is to one Stop Knife Shop, you can also try Ebay or Bladeforums to find a used one. The link provided appears to be offering this knife for $53, but I don't know what condition that's in. The one I bought on Amazon back in like 2013 or whatever was ~$30-$35. I actually have two of them, but I'm not sure where the other came from. They are cool knives, fun to play with, but not tacticool.

  5. The last one pictured is the Kershaw Cryo and is currently available on Amazon for ~$19. It is the smallest of the knives shown, smaller than the Fatback with the triangular handle by what looks like 2 inches when open. This would be a great beater knife, something that would be a fine flipper and used briefly but would not be comfortable for extended use, especially in large hands. If memory serves, there's two different Cryo models with 2 different sizes, but I have only the one you see. Could be the smaller of the two models.

    NOT PICTURED but I do also have the Kershaw Blur which Amazon is listing at ~$35 currently which is HIGHLY recommended even though it doesn't have a flipper. It's spring assisted opening and a very comfortable grip for larger hands. That price is so good, they're normally $55-$60 that I'm grabbing one of them again as an extra.

    I could list like 4-5 more Kershaw knives but my comment is too long already. If you would prefer more variety in recommendation, Spyderco has some solid options but if you want to go BALLS DEEP into tacticool, one of my most valued knives because it was bought for me as a gift was the Cold Steel AK-47. This knife is quite a bit larger than the ZT shown but is nearly the same price at ~$125-130 on Amazon. You might be able to find it cheaper on Ebay. Be careful though, there is the regular and mini version!

Maybe something more like the Kershaw Skyline?

If you do like it and then come into a bit more money, take a look at the skyline or shallot. Both made in USA (if you're into that, generally means better quality regardless), have better steel, use the flipper, and the shallot's assisted (though I did do away with the speedsafe on my shallot - like I said, I prefer unassisted - but still a great knife).

I would recommend a Ka-Bar Becker BK-2 Campanion (of course) and a Kershaw Skyline, if you're interested in a folder. Total for less than $100.
(BK-2 Abuse links.) Those two sets of tests should be more than enough evidence for the Campanion's awesomeness. It's $62 on Amazon.
The Kershaw Skyline gets great reviews. Amazon has them for $34.

EDIT: Added all the links, and decided to provide an actually comprehensive and helpful comment.

For mainly camping get a Cold Steel GI Tanto on Amazon. I usually don't like tango style blades but Cold Steel's has a thick edge that's great for bushcraft while the secondary edge/tip is great for prying and other heavy duty tasks. It is 1055 carbon steel so do clean it after every use. I recommend you modify the grip to something better though, I personally use tennis over grips as they are cheap and amazing.

Or if you want something smaller for both camping and EDC I suggest a Kershaw Skyline

Try a Kershah Skyline. I'm sure you will like it, but if not you are only out $35 or so.

Besides online they are often sold at Walmart.

My opinion is that $100 is too much for an EDC unless it's a knife you feel you must have. For most tasks a $10 POS is going to work just as well as a $100 Benchmade or Spyderco. Also there is a good chance you will somehow lose it.

Kershaw Skyline. Looks like the price dropped a bit- from $40 to $33- so you're in luck.

The Kershaw Skyline is a favorite over at /r/knifeclub. If you want something that looks fancier (and still cheaper than the overpriced BS that bestmadeco sells!) go for the Damascus Skyline. Made in the USA.

Another good one is a Kershaw Skyline

Y'all are dangerous. This came from just a little bit of browsing this sub and some searching and review reading and whatnot. Amazon links for convenience:

Leatherman Crater c33Tx

Kershaw Leek

Schrade SCHF9 Extreme Survival Knife

CRKT 2020 AG Russell Sting

Any advice or substitutions anybody care to offer? I think for the money this is a pretty damn fine set of 4 knives. The Leatherman might get some funny looks but I had its younger brother for many years and it would probably replace my current EDC (Kershaw Skyline)

Edit: Will definitely take lots of pictures when I pull the trigger.

I picked up a Kershaw Skyline when I was in college and it's a great knife. I have gotten some better knives since then but it's still probably my favorite for simplicity and pocketability.

u/mtbfreak · 0 pointsr/knives

kershaw skyline

boker nano

both almost the same price, i would prefer the skyline, although if just for looks i would get the nano.

u/Maine_Hillbilly · 0 pointsr/AppalachianTrail

Here is a nice light knife, small and fits into the ultralight category. I barely know I have it in my pocket most days.

u/IghtDen · -1 pointsr/EDC
