Years ago I stopped buying expensive knives, and I don't feel like I've missed a thing.
No offense to those who enjoy high-end handmade knives or super steels, but I'm all about bang-for-the buck.
Any 'S' brand knife.
The couple I did own many years ago were overpriced and just plain crap in every regard.
Now they just look wierd, feel wierd, and are still way over priced IMHO.
I can't even bring myself to type out the name.
I'd never by a Kershaw OSO Sweet again... the entire design of that knife from the blade to the pocket clip just sucks. Other than that, I love Kershaw knives.
Not expecting to ever get another mini Texas-toothpick

Thanks. You just saved me money.
I will never again own another MOD now Blackhawk they just don't pocket well.

I'll probably never buy a traditional non-locking knife again. I tried carrying a few over the years (Case, Buck, Queen) but I'll stick to Spyderco or Benchmade. I'm also not a fan of the jig bone or wood handle material (I know you can them in G10 too).
I avoided a lot of Ken Onion Kershaw designs due to his crappy pocket clip. My first was a Speed Bump. Don't try to give me a work of art for a pocket clip, I want a low profile, non attention grabbing one.
I'll never buy another Rat 2. Good value for money knife. Just the ergos are too small for my large hands.
My thumb got sore after opening and closing it a few times.

Not a fan of assisted opening knives. Bought a blur. It was an ok knife, but didn't really like the assisted opening after I got it. I ended up giving it to a friend. I actually wanted to get the thermite, but then found out it was assisted opening. Same for the zt 0350. Oh well. I know you can de assist them, but I'll stick with my spydies and benchmade.
The only knives I'll never buy again are discontinued and rare to the point that I'll never be able to find/afford one.
I loved the Blur at first... I never carry it anymore. I like assisted opening if it's a flipper, but not a thumb stud. I've nearly sliced my thumb open opening that blur at least 20 times. Other than that, it's a pretty good knife once you get it open and start using it.
Any knife that says CHINA on it.
Yea I liked the looks of it, the steel, and how it carried I just couldn't stand the clicky noise it would make when you shook it. I'm not even sure how I discovered the noise. I can't imagine a situation where I would shake my knife but sure enough it was there, and it bothered me. I have never had a flipper so I can't say whether or not I would like it with assisted opening.
If it would at least look like a spider and not like a tick. But yeah, imagine it would be called Tyck
Ya know, those flea market knives and the ones sold at a kiosk in the mall and in a lot of big box stores.
The cheap knives made from the same metal as a hot wheels car and just have overall bad quality.
When I was a kid, I didn't know quality, I just knew it looked cool and it was $5.
Now I got a box full of those things, and I am ashamed to own em.
But I keep em around for memories.
I should add no more stainless steel handled knives. I had a Spyderco Scorpius and Jester and I don't like the way the handles look. Even time I pick one up it looks a 100 more scratches were added even though I kept them wrapped in a cloth in their boxes. Scratches on a blade happen, scratches on a handle....meh.
I purposely left out anything "cheap". No $2 gas stations here.
I would also never buy anything I know to be a knockoff.
I personally am not a big fan of the Kershaw Cyro 2 and wish I had my $30.00 back. If I had handled it previously to owning it I would have never purchased it. It just feels cheap, its not very well made in my opinion, and the flipper is junk for an assisted opener.
You should get yourself a rock tumbler or just a jar filled up with pebbles. Stonewash your handles and you won't mind about a scratch anymore
