i am looking to purchase a tanto folder as my next pocket knife. I would like something that has a thick blade, strong locking mechanism, good grip, and not too long when open. So far the cold steel code 4 and benchmade barrage have grabbed my attention. I have not seen either of these knives in person. Would anyone recommend these knives or maybe have another recommendation? Thank you guys so much. My last knife purchase was a benchmade mini griptillian with a sheepsfoot blade. Looking for something with a better tip for self defense if i needed it.
