I have this knife and I love it. It's a CRKT. I actually found it for $35 shipped from Amazon a year ago. They sometimes go on sale if you are patient. It is tough and easy to deploy. Here is the link.

Also the American made Buck Vantage can be found at Wal - Mart ( it's available with several quality blade steels and handle types) costs anywhere from $20 - $60 new and worth every cent.

Walmart sells the vantage? I like the way that looks.


To the OP, the "Needs Work" is a great knife. Easy to sharpen. Good steel. Smooth and locks up tight.

Really anything Kershaw that is to your liking (blade design, ergo's, etc.) are a great buy IMHO. But I've carried some type of kershaw for about 10 years now. I currently EDC a kershaw Junkyard Dog II and am very pleased. 2 years ago it was a "Needs Work" which I carried for about 2 years. I tend to rotate EDC's every 2 years.

I have my favorites, but they'll cost a little more than what you're looking to spend. IMHO my knife is my most-used tool. I have spent thousands of dollars on firearms I don't get to use anywhere other than a range and thousands of dollars on automotive or home tools I only use occassionally, I can afford to spend a hundred bucks on something I carry and use every single day. My favorite: Benchmade model 710 McHenry Williams. The AXIS lock is without equal and the D2 tool steel will take extreme abuse.

Kershaws are ok, but I've yet to own one that didn't end up having a chipped blade from even softer wear than I put on my Benchmades. The steel Kershaw uses is very brittle, it takes one hell of a sharp edge but it sacrifices a lot in terms of wear and tear which just isn't a good trade off to me. I have also owned several of which that needed the spring for the assisted opening replaced. They are decent blades for the money, but for a little more investment you'll get something that simply won't need to be replaced. I own dozens of EDC knives (Kershaw, SOG, CRKT, Spyderco, Boker, Gerber, MoD, Ka-Bar, Zero Tolerance, Benchmade... off the top of my head) and a Benchmade has been in my pocket for quite a few years now, if that tells you anything.
