    SRM710. Beat on it, abused it. Still a tighter lockup than any other sub $50 folder.

    No flak from me, I have one with the layered red and black G10 and it is a really nice knife. I only have two little problems with it. The pocket clip doesn't really, and there's a sharp point on the lock that digs into my finger when holding it. Otherwise it's a nice solid big folder. It certainly flips open with a satisfyingly solid thunk.

    CRKT Pazoda is a nice $20 knife, just make sure you know how to sharpen a blade well.

    All the best

    Mine was the opposite, way too loose. Easy enough to fix, tho, just undo the screws and do a little bending.

    That it does! :D

    Weird. Mine is super tight. Can't open it with one hand. Gonna have to work on the pivot a little I guess.

    I got a deal on my Delica a year ago for $51 if that counts. I love that. Tenacious, cryo, skyline, rat 1 are also great knives

    Only one? ;)
    Yeah this thread is costing me...
    The Soddies are great all-around knives at a very affordable price. I have a handful of the Case ones.

    Just testing the waters. Which means I will probably dive in head first in a week.

    I ordered three Chinese knives thanks to this post, an Enlan and two Sanrenmu.

    Who can blame you? I went and bought six Sanrenmu knives, three 605 mini knives, and three A123 keyring knives. Probably sell two of each locally and share my newly acquired love of knives. Also something advertised as a Kershaw 1920 multi-tool, because I was curious about what it was like.
