    You got a great deal on your Sage if you got a new one for less than $100!

    believe or not, it used to be under $100, as well as Caly3, Dodo, Lava, Adventura and bolstered Persians big and small.
    I really like only one knife, which can be found under $100 at most dealers. This is Manix2 LW with satin blade black scales.
    Unfortunately in now days not that many knives, I am interested on can be found under $100. Used to be many more.....:(

    I paid exactly $100 for it on amazon a while back. I am thinking about spending a bit more on a PM2 tho now.

    I guess that's like with every hobby. First the cheap(er) things are nice and interesting, but then this one or that one is just a bit better/cooler/fancier or just simply tickles our wannahave nerve.
    And of course inflation, dammit :cool:

    For a general purpose EDC knife, I'd have to say my Mini Grip is just about perfect for me.

    Don't think I've seen the blade shape of the mini grip on blue scales, dealer exclusive I suppose? Also, which do you prefer, the sheep's foot or the drop point blade?

    Yep. Grips are the stuff. I've had a mini-grip in D2 for quite a while, and a few months ago picked up a full-size REI version with G10 handles and an S30V blade. Great ergos, great lock, great weight. The 154CM steel may not be the hot steel du jour, but it's a capable blade regardless.
