    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Looking for a knife....

    All,

    I'm looking for a daily carry folder. However I have the following requirements:

    Must be less then 60$(ish), simply because I plan on using it as a knife, and as a daily cary and I don't want it so expensive that I'm afraid of loosing it, dropping it etc.

    Must be decent sized, I have large hands and find most knives uncomfortably small.

    Can not have ANY sort of assisted opening. I live in NY and we have the stupidest knife laws. (not even a side-opening blade w/ spring)

    I prefer a "straight" blade not a serrated edge. I've been looking at some of the Benchmade reverse-tanto blades and love the look of them.

    I prefer a blade with thumb tabs on both sides as the knife may be in either my right or left pocket and would need to be openable with either hand.

    Other then that... I defer to vastly superior knife knowledge.

    Thanks in advance!

    Should have something easily in your price range to meet those requirements.

    For a fairly cheap but good quality knife with a good size, look into the Cold Steel Voyager. They come in a veriety of blade lengths, up to 6 inches. They have a relatively straight blade, thumb studs on the sides, and I believe you can switch the pocket clip how you like it.

    if u can find a knife store, just give them the same criteria u posted above, he'll give u your options

    i can't help u there with the big hands...i've never had to go out of my way to notice that about knives

    having said that, i recommend kershaws and Emersons =)

    edit - forget kershaws, the reason i like theirs is for their assisted folders
    and forget emerson, they're too expensive...heh...damn...my tastes for knives have grown so much, i only think about the pricey ones these days

    Second rec from this site. Never had a problem getting my stuff from them and good prices.

    Kabar makes solid knives in this price range. I have a Kabar/Maserin HawkBill Folder that lasted me a year (so far) of everyday use (I recently stopped carrying it in favor of an emerson). The only issues was it lost its bottom screw after 8 months or so (I did take it apart, so I might not tightened it too well the last time). Doesn't effect the knife at all though. Worth the $55 I payed for it.

    Spydercos are great, but if you want the best quality/price ratio you might want a kanekoma. You can find one of them on eBay. As far as I know they are the only knives with san mai blades under 30 $.

    I'm a fan of benchmade and gerber, although the later can get pricey.
