    I need help finding a sub-$100 folder with a blade over 4". Spyderco Resilience comes to mind, but I'd like help finding some options. I'd really like a Kershaw Speedsafe but can't find anything from them.

    For reference, when I'm not in the office, I EDC a Cold Steel Espada XL G10. So I like "the big ones."

    CRKT Otanashi Noh Ken comes to mind. They come in just under $100 in most places. I'd hunt around and see if you can get one second-hand. I picked mine up on a forum for $60.

    Alright sween, thanks for the recommendation! I'll keep it on the "lookout list."

    in the sub $100 range really only cold steels come to mind, maybe an xl voyager, Spartan, and if you can stretch a little maybe an xl talwar, or xl recon one

    if you could go with one that is just at 4 inches, the CRKT Ikoma Fossil might be a good choice.

    You can find Spyderco Police 3's (g-10) for less than $100 used.

    Opinel 12 has something like a 4-3/4" blade. Stainless blade, beechwood handle. Under $40.

    Kershaw Tremor right at 4" with speed safe [​IMG][​IMG]
    This Meyerco is AO and a 4" blade. Awesome knife for under $30
    [​IMG]even has carbon fiber bolsters. Lightfoot design. Think its called a Catchdog.
    This CRKT Fossil has a bearing pivot so blade flips crazy fast and is four inch blade.[​IMG]
    The Cold Steels Voyager xl are 5 1/2" of love.
    All of the CS blades are 4" or larger. Spyderco Resilience for reference. [​IMG]

    These are all added to the watch list. Having a heck of a time finding a plain-edge Catch Dog. CRKT Fossil appears to have about 9 different size/model number variations. Depending on where I look, the Kershaw Tremor is either 3-3/8", 3-5/8" or 4". Who knows?

    Thanks, all, for your help.
