For the last 5 years, I've been carrying a serrated Kershaw Blur w/ glassbreaker as my EDC around the house and my small farm. I've actually really loved that knife, the size, the grip, the aluminum frame, and especially the assisted open. My only complaint is that it seemed to not hold an edge very long at all (although, I don't have much to compare to, so I could be way off base). I carry it in my back pocket, too, so the pocket clip is a must.

I'm not opposed to getting the same knife again, but I thought you guys might know some good options that I should consider! I'd like to keep it under $100 but that could be fudged if needed.

Thank you!

You can try for harder steels so you keep the edge longer, something like the Spyderco Dragonfly 2 ZDP-189. The surgical edge on mine lasted forever until I ruined the blade (long story), with the drawback of being very, very difficult to sharpen back if you lose its edge. Alternatively, you can opt for utility knives like the Gerber EAB and never worry about sharpening again.

Spyderco paramilitary 2. Not assisted opening but they are smooth to open so it’s not needed. Solid pocket clip. S30V steel ( unless you get a special run which will have even better steel but more $ ) which is going to be much better then that Kershaw you were running. Made in the USA. It’s one of the most popular edc knives for a reason! Give it a try , you won’t regret it. All that being said , you’re looking at around $120 to own it. I have 3 and use em all!!!

How's about a Spyderco Urban for a really uncomplicated  but supremely competent little pocket knife.  If a lock is a must than you can't go far wrong with a Spyderco Delica (small), Endura (large), Sanrenmu 9103 (large), 8104 (small), or an Ontario Rat 1 (big) or 2 (small).  There is a galore of Ganzo/Firebirds to choose from too.
