Keep an eye out on these forums for sale threads,they dont pop up daily but ive seen a few each week in the past,all around $100 or slightly more.No they arent cheap by anymeans.
Mine opens with so much force it can jerk the knife around in my hand when i hit the open button,a good tight grip is needed with them.Mine has ats34 steel in the blade,wich is the same as cpm 154 wich is used now.But the higher the grade of steel the higher the knife costs.Mine being older was $250 brand new,and most new ones run $400+ now so its gonna be an older design.Benchmade has a great warrenty also if its ever needed.

I think the OP here would be best suited for a Spyderco,thay can be had reasonably and are above average quality wise.Just gotta search for the right knife as they like useing serrations alot.I dont personally care for them either.Also unlike cheaper knives you can buy parts for the more expensive brands,if you break a clip usually the company will replace it for free and refurb your knife while one is being replaced.You really do get what you pay for with knives.

I really like this one. I got it before I went on my latest deployment and it performed great. $40. Cant beat it

Interestingly enough the clip is upside down from traditional knives. So the hinge point is at the bottom of the knife when in your pocket as opposed to the top

I'm in the same boat as you, let me know what you decide on! I lost my daily carry a few months back. I think I'd like a Benchmade though. Never tried a Kershaw!

I love my titanium one. Broke the damn tip off the blade though. Was my own fault using it as a screwdriver. Owell.

I carry a leatherman skeletool. The knife holds a great edge, and you use the pliers more then you would think you will.

Yeah,you dont deserve a good knife for doing that with one.A good knife requires care if you plan on useing it a lifetime.If not you can buy $5 ebay specials all day long.

About the razor blade type knifes,i bought my dad a pair of them with Craftsmans name on them,im sure they didnt make them tho.He loves them even tho he abuses them and then just throws a new blade in them when needed.For a work knife i couldnt imagine anything handier.

One of those times when I needed a screwdriver RIGHT THEN, and couldn't gain access to one. That has now been rectified. I carry one with me all the time. Gotta do things like that so you learn.

Understood,id cringe if i had to use a BM like that.Mabey a life and death thing,then i might consider it.
Im getting close to 40 now,so hopefully ive learned enough lessons to not do things like that.
I did find my lost 885 DarkStar BM i thought was long gone,was under my recliner.Thats the bad thing about having knives almost too good to use,its a bitch of they get lost or destroyed.Kinda why i suggest Spyderco and Kershaw,i prefer Spyderco even tho ive never owned one.Very good overall quality with really good blade steel.

see, i generally use my P38 as a screwdriver if i need one, but i'm not against prying with a knife blade if i think it'll get the job done
maybe i should add that i need a good strong blade

edit: but there's no way in hell you could break the tip of a knife using it as a screwdriver, maybe prying with the tip, but screwing something in? what the fuck were you working with?

Unscrewing something, with the tip. Couldn't get in there with the side. The side loading on the tip snapped it off. I need to just regrind and temper it into a tanto. :P

I was trying to fix a carb. I was working on the primaries on the side of the road and was getting the mixture set, as well as fix the OMP settings. Knife tip broke off, but it did it as soon as I got the car running right . . . so the knife got me home.

I carry one of these. The pouch is a bit weird but I love the size and it is so pretty...

I'm a gadget freak and that extends to knives. I wish I could justify buying the custom version of that knife.

So I got this lil' beastie

Gerber EAB, it's cheap as free at $10 too
I love this thing! Solid clip, small, nice design. Sharp as a razor too

looks like opening it is a bit of a chore as compared to some

In order to buy a auto you will need proper licenses,unless you buy used from someone.

Id suggest not buying direct from BM unless its your only choice,ive not heard of price breaks from msrp.
