    just got a new job at a warehouse and i have alot of stuff in my pockets, been carrying a utilitac 2 but its getting a bit big and bulky, im looking to get something thinner and lighter but still sized enough to be comfortiable, id say the 3ish blade size, i still use my knife frequently, cause i find that its more useful then the box cutters for alot of tasks. any suggestions?

    A cheap and verry good one, is the Kershaw Cryo. It's 2.75" long but it's a bit heavy

    +1 on the skyline, although there's alot of choices that feel smaller, i got my skyline at walmart for $35, but that was a good deal. i also suggest a SOG twitch II - sweet little knife that doesn't take up too much space.

    if you got a few bucks to spend, a benchmade 940 feels gives you alot of blade but feels small and light in the pocket, and the BM 530 is so small you'll forget it's there.

    i got enough money to buy something expensive but im leaning more towards cheap because with what i use my knives for and how often i use them it isnt worth spending alot, especially since i can sharpen them anytime i need too.

    What about a Kershaw Shallot? It looks tough and like a good knife in general. Dont tell anybody, but I've actually thrown mine!

    How about your review of the Skyline on Amazon? You probably remember what you paid 4 months ago.

    Or your thoughts over at BF?

    I hate adding to cross-forum drama but I have to agree with Djjonny. This thread-cycle just goes around in circles ad nauseum.
