You should check out usamadeblade.com

 

If you've got questions, you can email Scott (Whitty), and he'll post size comparisons of different knives on instagram for people who ask. So if you have a reference knife (for size) you can get comparable dimensions and what not.  And the knives he sells are all made in the USA

+1 on the skyline! I carry one daily (until I get my dragonfly in the mail!). Great blade for a great price.

However for the higher end range, I love Spyderco. I have owned the Manix 2 G10 and lightweight, Delica, and Ambitous in the past. Amazing knives. Only reason I sold them is because I'm a small knife guy. I prefer 2.5" and under blades. I love everything I've owned by Spyderco, and sometimes miss my old Spydies.

I've been daily carrying a Zero Tolerance ZT350 for the last 8 years and it's no worse for wear after taking a beating day in and day out.  Zero Tolerance is like the Acura to the Kershaw's Honda.

Have you made a decision? :)

 

I would recommend the Benchmade North Fork folding knife, I like it because it's light and at the same it was made to last. I like this balance between simplicity and strength.

I decided on the Mini Grip. So far I'm very happy with it as a EDC knife. I will purchase a full size Benchmade in the future.

Being that I'm not a collector, and only looking to buy users, I'm not confident in buying a spyderco. I dont care to replace things on my cheaper knives, like my rat 2 or case sodbuster, but if Im going to pay over $150 for a knife (which is a lot for me), I want the availability of great customer service. Unfortunately, from what I hear, spyderco just doesnt compare to benchmade. I want to be able to buy a replacement blade and not a new knife, or to get hardware replaced without a hassle. I had a griptilian given to me that had a chipped blade and missing hardware for the grips, they told me to mail it in and I could get free hardware and a new blade for $30-40 (depending on satin or coated finish). I love the looks of spyderco, but benchmade provides pure quality.

Try looking around at Atlanta Cutlery. They have a good collection probably you will find a good knife within your budget. Also, I guess they have a Knife Day sale, offering 15% off on all their knives. So do check them once.  :)
