I don’t think I’ve ever created a thread asking for help on a purchase of any kind. I can use Google and in the past I’ve been able to find exactly what I wanted without input from others. But I’m kind of stuck with this purchase and I’m hopeful that you guys can help, In a perfect world this is what I would like to buy. - 3” Blade, 4” handle, pretty firm on the 3” blade (no legal issues, just a preference) - Flipper is preferable but thumb stud or spydie hole is OK - Liner lock or frame lock - mid to upper range steel (not a steel snob, just something decent) - Prefer G10 handle - Drop point or similar blade shape - Right hand, tip up carry - Fairly slim and pocketable - Hard cap of $250 and prefer sub $200 - Something a little different, no Damascus or anything crazy but nothing entry level - Prefer US made but not opposed to anything if the quality is there After listing this out I realize I may be too picky and after a unicorn. If so, tell me, I can take it. I think that’s it, although I am probably forgetting something. For some background, this is what I pick from currently: TAD Dauntless MKIV, an old Dragonfly in ATS-55 and some custom SAK’s. Looking for something in between the size of the 2 locking folders, I guess. This is what I’ve owned and sold over the last few years. Al Mar Falcon, Kizer Gemini, ZT0770, BM 940-2, PM2 All good knives, mostly forum favorites, just looking for something a little different. I’m a user, not a collector and I sold them mostly to consolidate not because I hated them. I do miss the Kizer and ZT, just not enough to replace them. This is what I’ve found as a place to start. Spyderco Sage 1, not sure of the CF but it’s pretty close and the price is right. The obvious answers are CR Small Sebenza or Hinderer XM18 3” but I’m just not going to spend that much. I may have to, just not there today. I say that mostly because there are a lot of good knives in the sub $200 range, I’ve owned several. I just can’t find what I’m looking for, at least within my specs. There are so many good knives out there, I know I’m missing something, and I’m hoping you guys can help. I’m also not in a hurry if something is coming but not out yet. Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance.
