    +1 for ZT. Look around and you can find a good priced 560-561. I EDC a 560 everyday and love it

    My vote is for the Zero Tolerance 0770CF. If you search around a bit, you can get them for about $120, and it is, in my opinion, a perfect EDC knife. Useful blade shape, lightweight, great clip, excellent blade steel, and not so big or tacticool looking that it will scare non-knife people if you need to pop open a box at the office.

    Anyone of the al mar ultralights. You can pick out the size you like the best and they should be well under your price cap online. I have had an eagle for 15ish years and still love it. A nice large locking blade in a slim profile that disappears in the pocket. My collection has expanded into more beefy and pricy knives of late but the eagle is still in my pocket about half the time.

    The ZT 560 is kinda big but feels right when opened and holding it. It's bascily a hinderer XM-18

    I do like smaller blades. How does a Chen Duty knife compare in size to the Manix2 or the Michael Morris Wharnie? Jon has some in the store and if they are smaller I may pick one up.

    Some of my favorite knives are also some of my least expensive. Also, a cheaper knife I actually don't worry about using and if I lose it not as much to worry about.

    If you like the smaller blades, look at the Boker keycom (listed), Spyderco
    kiwi or kershaw Leek. All are slim and tidy cutters.
