If you like flippers, which I love, I like Kershaws. I carry 2 different Kershaws and one slip joint, but not all at the same time.

Kershaw O' So Sweet.... https://www.smkw.com/kershaw-oso-sweet
Those are less now than I paid for mine 10 years ago.

Kershaw Axle, which seems to be hard to find right now... Here is a link to what it looks like... Found them available on e-bay.... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Kershaw-Axl...W/311927681567

Don't be fooled by the price. I have some knives that are worth over $100, and these Kershaws are work horses.

Just some suggestions based on what works for me:

Kershaw Leek:

https://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-1660O...9955222&sr=8-3

Ontarion RAT D2:

https://www.amazon.com/Ontario-ON883...s%2C308&sr=8-4

Cold Steel Finn Wolf:

https://www.amazon.com/Cold-Steel-Fo...s%2C223&sr=8-4https://www.amazon.com/Kershaw-1660O...9955222&sr=8-3

All of these are well under $100. I have the RAT in my pocket right now -- and there is a less expensive AUS8 stainless version if that's your style. The Cold Steel needed to be worked a bit to smooth up, but with a drop of oil on the hinge it opens with one hand. The Leek is sharp out of the box, but it is a bit thin at the tip for the way I use my knives. Nice design though. I have one and like it, I just don't carry it as often.

I like Paddy's Potato Peelers YouTube page. He does some great knife reviews.

Here is a link to one of his videos showing a few of his Ganzo knives. You can tell by how many he has that he likes them a lot, and they are well made and inexpensive.

Was given a leek a few years back, it has been a handy little knife. Its permanently in my camelback and gets used for basic mundane tasks. We ended up in the pot yard one day and forgot the net mending buoy (a poly form filled with twine sewing needles and a pile of knives). Had the leek in the pack of the truck, and it ended up being used to trip bridles of pots we were picking up to re rig. Dunno how many sand impregnated 7/8 poly lines we cut that evening but it was a test of a knife. Was rather impressed with how well it held up.

Not assisted but a couple flipper recommendations... If you donít have one then a kershaw skyline is one of my all time favorites.

Currently im using a couple kizer knives. The kizer Gemini and Dukes can be had well under your price point. (Used on eBay you might be able to get both)

But, reached in my pocket and had a factory second Kershaw Leek that has been a workhorse and even though kershaw doesnít warranty them they still sent me replacement springs when the original broke.

Dukes on top, Gemini, and Leek One comment I remove the pocket clips from my knives and I acid/stone washed the Gemini as I like the black/stonewashed look and they donít offer this option.

The Spyderco Mannix II is a great EDC at right around $100.

Buck Marksman. The fastest flipper out there, faster than assisted blades.

I really like the Benchmade Griptilian, Griptilain Mini, and Bugout. The Spyderco Delica 4 is also a great knife. This page has a lot of the more popular models out there right now: https://www.marineapproved.com/best-edc-knives/ The good thing about Benchmade knives is that they're backed by the lifesharp program and they're made in the USA.
