    hi i am new here and i work at a warehouse and i use a knife all the time
    And i have a Spyderco Delica, mainly because i use gloves, i like it but
    The handle is somewhat small i am looking for something bigger but
    I don’t want to carry around a $200 knife but i want something from
    Spyderco because of the hole. Also do you have any suggestions
    For a pouch because i also have a pen and marker. I also want something
    That has easy access for the knife and pen.

    You can move up in size a bit to Endura, Paramilitary 2, PM3, native, etc. For a work knife, I would carry a Tenacious. They are well made, have great ergonomics and cost about $40. Just give it a quick strop when you're done for the day and you will learn to love it.

    I can't give you much of an opinion on sheaths or pouches but the Leatherman nylon sheaths with pockets work very well for me.

    I like the larger 4.5" version for carrying a knife or MT, lighter, Sharpie and flashlight.

    +1 for the Tenacious.

    Nice comfortable grip and easy to use liner lock even with gloves on. Won't break the bank and never ceases to deliver as long as you show the edge a little extra love every so often. I've got $200 knives in my stable and the Tenacious stays with them quite comfortably.

    Though long discountinued, the Benchmade Vex with the Spydie hole is a great knife if you can find one. It was a Made in China Red Box model that also cost less than $40.

    The Benchmade Griptilian and Mini Griptilian are also available with the Spydie hole.

    +1 for the Tenacious. I wouldn't want to carry an expensive knife in a warehouse job either. The PM3 or PM2 will perform well, but will cost much more. Many on here have also pointed to the Manix 2 knives as good in these jobs.

    L'chaim!
