  • ~$7-8 Sanrenmu 7010/710 - You can find these at Gearbest for cheap as hell when they have sales but they're absolutely $30 worth of knife
  • ~$10-20 Opinel no.6-12 - Depends on blade size/steel/handle wood. #6 is under 3in blade if that kind of thing matters.
  • ~$20 CRKT Drifter
  • ~$20 Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara2
  • ~$20-25 Ontario Rat II or Rat I
  • ~$30 Victorinox Cadet Alox
  • ~$30 Kershaw Cryo
  • ~$35 CRKT Ripple
  • ~$35 Spyderco Persistence
  • ~$40 Kershaw Skyline - Often on sale in the ~$30 range
  • ~$40 Kershaw Leek - Same sales as with the Skyline \^^

    Honorable Mention: Case knives. Traditional lockbacks. Hard as nails and pretty to boot. True pocket knives. Your grandfather (possibly great grandfather) had one. Good stuff the lot of them. $25-50 will get you a legacy knife that you can carry and use and then pass to your kid.

    You don't need to spend $200 to get a quality, durable, reliable knife. I've owned all of these knives at one time or another and loved every one of them. Sure they needed sharpening more often and sometimes something a little more drastic (Sanrenmus are often cheaper to replace than fix) but the value is insane. Plus, lets face facts; we're much more likely to break out our Cadet when we get box duty than our Sebenza.

    Knife enthusiasts (brothers) if there's a weighed and measured cheapo that I forgot, let me know.
u/Connguy · 10 pointsr/misleadingthumbnails

Even better, post it to /r/knifeclub.

It looks like it might have come from one or both of them originally though. That's a Kershaw Cryo II, one of the most popular budget blades out there

Edit: Actually after looking closer, the longer clip suggests it's the original Cryo, not the Cryo II. They're very similar though.

Is this what you're showing off, because for $22 I might join the club too.

u/PapaShane · 8 pointsr/EDC

If you have a few bucks lying around, the easiest way to answer this question is to have you buy a decent knife and see for yourself how much better it is. For a nice folder in your size range, the Ontario Rat1 would be a nice start...it's only $25 (which is a very low price for a quality knife), its 3.5" blade is big enough to do most things you'll need it to do while also being legal to carry almost everywhere (in the US), it's supposed to have a buttery smooth pivot action, and it has a decent blade steel (AUS-8) as opposed to the who-knows-what in a typical gas station knife. And yes, the steel alloy does make a lot of difference, a good blade will hold a sharp edge for longer, be tough enough to withstand some abuse, be flexible enough that it doesn't shatter easily, and unlike crap "stainless" steel it will actually remain rust-free under reasonable conditions. The heat treatment of the blade also contributes to these traits, and I can guarantee that Ontario does a better heat-treat than whoever made your $7 gas station knife...which probably didn't receive any treatment. If the Rat1 isn't your style, Kershaw makes a bunch of budget-friendly (~$30) knives that are also pretty highly regarded, something like the Cryo which has spring-assisted opening or the very sexy Skyline which isn't assisted opening. And if those aren't to your liking, then Spyderco makes a couple budget folders, one of them being the Resilience which has a bigger 4.25" blade and nice G10 handles, you may like that one for the bigger size. Might wanna check the legality in your area though...

So yeah, apart from working better, a nice knife also has a much smaller chance of failing and cutting off your finger, which is the main reason that I cringe a little bit when people use bad knives...I just don't want to see someone who doesn't know any better get hurt by a knife they thought would work fine. Unfortunately, I do see plenty of knives like that around r/EDC, but maybe I just hang out in /r/knives too much.

u/NathCraft27 · 6 pointsr/pcmasterrace

Oh for sure! What's your price range?

For under 40$ some great options would be the Kershaw Leek , the Kershaw Cryo (the Cryo II is a bit larger for almost the same price if you prefer) or anything Kershaw really. You could also look for Sanrenmu knives, they're good for the price.

If you're really serious and you're looking for better quality, I recommend the Spyderco Delica (smaller), the Spyderco Endura (larger) or the Benchmade Griptilian (mini or full size, your choice). I own a mini Griptilian and I love it, I really recommend it if you can justify the price.

u/po_toter · 5 pointsr/army

Fuck I'm too drunk to fuck with cherries, so I'll just give you the answers.

u/emarkd · 5 pointsr/knifeclub

Good idea but do keep in mind that different steels respond very differently to the stone. Really cheap steel will usually be quite soft, maybe even too soft to properly sharpen without it "smearing" or rolling over.

Maybe start with flea market junk, but consider something like a $20 Kershaw Cryo as an intermediary step. Its a lot better steel and will give you good practice, but if you really booger it up and can't fix it, you're only out $20.

On the other hand, if you find you can properly maintain the edge on that Cryo you'll have no problem with just about anything else you want to try, plus you've got a really good entry-level folder as well!

u/theNightblade · 5 pointsr/EDC

You can do really well for edc gear you listed for well under $350.

u/Zerv14 · 4 pointsr/EDC

Off the top of my head things that are cool and don't break the bank:

Kershaw Cryo

Spydero Tenacious

Leatherman Wingman

Streamlight Microstream

Gerber Impromptu Pen

Kershaw Cryo

Kershaw Chill


Can you be a little more specific on what you prefer? Flipper/non-flipper? thumb stud/thumb hole/thumb disk? assisted/non assist?

I had a Spyderco Persistence for a while. Its good, but not great like the Tenacious.

u/jacobtx · 4 pointsr/BudgetBlades

It’s not a cleaver or sheepsfoot style, but this is another excellent option

u/mroystacatz · 4 pointsr/knifeclub

Here are my personal essentials.


  • Spyderco Delica 4: $60 VG-10 steel, comes in tons of colors
  • Spyderco Endura 4: Larger version of Delica
  • Morakniv Companion: $12-$20 A really awesome fixed blade, outperforms knives triple it's price.
  • Victorinox Tinker: $20-25 classic swiss army knife, really great quality in general. Lots of tools but not too many so it's easily pocket carried.
  • Victorinox Cadet: Smaller Swiss Army Knife, aluminum handles. Lots of colors.
  • Kershaw Cryo, or Cryo 2: $20-40 steel frame lock, Hinderer design, good price, tons of colors. The Cryo 2 is the same as the Cryo just larger.
  • Ontaro Rat 1 or 2: $25-30 Classically shaped folders with a very rugged build for a liner lock. The 2 is a smaller version of the 1.

    Also, you're going to want a sharpening system that works for you in the long run. I personally use the Spyderco Sharpmaker But there are tons of good sharpening options out there.

    P.S: You're going to get a lot of people hating on your Gerbers most likely, that's because they're honestly not worth it in the long run. They use very low quality steel for the price and they don't have the best quality control. I'm not saying your Gerbers are trash or anything. But they definitely won't last very long. Just about all of the knives I listed will last you a lifetime if you treat them right, and oil/sharpen them correctly.
u/ARKnife · 3 pointsr/KnifeDeals

Sold directly by Amazon, no known clones.

Was actually one of my first knives, really liked it at the time.

Really slim and light (very easy to carry), RJ Martin design, flipper on washers (becomes much smoother with time), G10 handle and 8Cr13MoV blade.

Few things to remember:

  • The blade has a beadblasted finish so it could rust if not wiped and even oiled after use.

  • The knife will arrive with a tip-down clip, I'd recommend switching it to tip-up configuration for easier carry and deployment.

    Specs:

  • Lock: Linerlock

  • Blade: 3-1/8 in.

  • Closed: 3-7/8 in.

  • Made in China

    Kershaw Cryo - $21.28 (Reg price: $36.95) and the Kershaw 4KXL - $26.39 (Reg price: $39.99) are also on sale, both sold by Amazon and have free shipping (Cryo on orders over $25).

    How do you rate these deals?
u/elementality22 · 3 pointsr/rawdenim

It's the 1555TI Cryo I don't know much about them either, this is my first knife.

u/TOUCHER_OF_SHEEP · 3 pointsr/knives

I'd second that Leek for a small, not-intimidating (unintimidating? nonintimidating? ARE THESE EVEN WORDS?!?!) knife. Other good offerings would be the Spyderco Persistance, the Kershaw Cryo or even, for $12.50 over your budget a Mini-Griptilian- use the coupon codes "nutnfancy" and "BM25" to bring the price down to $62.50 and grant free shipping.

u/PancakeEater101 · 3 pointsr/EDC

The shard is $6 on Amazon, so for less than $10 more you can have the shard and a MUCH better knife

u/TickNut · 3 pointsr/EDC

This is a list of my EDC. I go to public high school so some items can't be carried all the time. I'll try and get links to all the products I can.
 

  • Front Right Pocket
  • My iPod Touch 6 in blue (my iPod is the only thing that goes in here, this is to avoid unnecessary scratches).
  • Watch Pocket
  • Sometimes I'll carry a Mini Bic Lighter in baby blue.
  • Front Left Pocket
  • Kershaw Cryo Knife clipped onto my pocket.
  • Key Ring
    • A Key Dangler also clips on my pocket and keeps things from bunching up.
    • Leatherman Style PS- a multi tool that doesn't have a blade. So I'm able to take it to school and not worry about getting suspended.
    • A little dinky flashlight for when I'm really in a pinch.
  • Peculiarly Perfect Peanut Butter Peppermint Lip Balm (by the YouTubers Rhett and Link).
  • Back Left Pocket
    • Wallet
      • Along with normal things you keep in a wallet; I have two folded up paper towels. These come in handy.
  • Back Right Pocket
    • I like to keep this pocket as a blank slate. So it changes a lot. Sometimes I'll carry a hacksysack if I know I'll be doing a lot of standing around. Or I'll bring my Bolt Focus Flashlight to work. Other times I'll just have a folded up rag (because I'm too stingy to buy a hanky).
       

      So I actually have a fairly in depth reason on why certain items go in certain pockets. But this comment is long enough so I'll leave it out unless you ask.
       

      EDIT: It looks like the Bolt Focus Flashlight is currently unavailable. I'll still leave the link in case that changes.

The not-in-public item: because I feel like carrying a huge plush Cthulu will make people look at me funny. (on the $10-$20 list)

The phallic item, without the wings it kinda looks that way :P (main list)

The most geeky item was the hardest for me to choose because there are so many of them but I ended up going with this one because I think tabletop D&D is nerdier than Minecraft. (10-20)

The best item to bring to a deserted island is this because I could cut things and peel things and take down large beasts..... okay, maybe that one was kind of ambitious. (main)

u/JoeReal · 2 pointsr/knives

I understand where you're coming from as far as syle is concerned, but I think giving them something they can carry everyday is more meaningful. I suggest a Kershaw Cryo;
I think the 8Cr13MoV steel is the best steel you can get in a knife under $30. I always suggest either a Kershaw or a Spyderco as a budget knife.

u/downhillcarver · 2 pointsr/tifu

A knife is always a good gift. You can get a fairly nice knife for $30, or a pretty decent knife for $15. If you don't feel like shopping online, you could even pick up a Gerber Mini Paraframe for $10 at Walmart. They're really more affordable gifts than you'd think.

The best part is, they're good gifts for everyone. If they're a knife enthusiast, they'll always be glad for another knife, they can always use a cheap knife as a beater knife. If they've never carried a knife, they'll give it a try and realize how convenient it is.

I gave my girlfriend the Gerber Mini Paraframe after she kept borrowing my knife. She scoffed at first, but tossed it in her purse, a week later she thanked me, saying how often it's saved the day. 3 years later, she still carries it in her purse.

u/ItIsOnlyRain · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

That is fair and that isn't the worst Gerber knife there is. The problems though are:

The biggest concern I would have is the reports of failure lock and other robustness.

The general quality is okish....

It is quite big and heavy considering it isn't very robust.

The Bead blasted finish is prone to rusting (especially with that steel).

The steel (7CR17Mo) is mediocre in a lot of aspects.

The serrations are personal and if you just tear things rather than requiring a clean cut they can be better (just more difficult to resharpen).


For the same price range you have the dozier which is brilliant, the Cold steel tuff litehttps://www.amazon.com/2010012-Cold-Steel-Serrated-20Lts/dp/B006YBW6VA/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1492545767&sr=8-3&keywords=cold+steel+tuff+lite) which is really robust and the Kershaw which has amazing reviews over thousands of buyers and a lifetime warranty

u/Rocket_Puppy · 2 pointsr/EDC

What do you use the Skeletool most for?

If you use the knife on it constantly and daily, then yeah, get a good knife. If the stuff that you do cut makes you nervous with the Skeletool then definitely get a dedicated knife.

If you use the bit driver or pliers on the Skeletool the most then you probably don't need to carry a dedicated knife.

Give the Sage 5 a good look as well if you are considering the Para3. I'd also strongly recommend finding a Spyderco/Benchmade/Zero Tolerance dealer and fondling a bunch of knives before making a decision on which knife to buy.

If you have never carried a dedicated knife before it would be a good idea to buy a cheaper knife or two before spending $100+ on a knife.

Could try something like the Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara 2:

Try some under $30 knives, pick one that looks like something you would like to carry, and pick something that is dang near the polar opposite. It will let you know what you like in a knife much cheaper. Differences in blade size, blade shape, handle shape and how they are used might change your opinion on what you think you need in a knife after using a dedicated knife for awhile. After that you can make a truly informed decision on a high-end knife.

u/eltonnovs · 2 pointsr/knives

Well, for a low budget you can't beat the ontario rat 1.

Not bashing cheap beater knives, but the one you're using is a classic 'tacticool mall knife', stick as much stuff on it as you can and put a semper fi in the name. Done! If that's what you like, fine but they're not known for their high quality. Pretty much everything you get will be an upgrade.

Maybe also take a look at these

u/natrlselection · 2 pointsr/knives

I'm a big fan of the Kershaw Cryo because of the spring assisted open. It's got a rock-solid feel when open and locked, and there's a lifetime warranty on the knife. The spring will break at some point, but when it does obviously the knife still cuts, and you can mail it back to Kershaw who will fix it, clean it, sharpen it and send it back for free.

u/mrflarp · 2 pointsr/knifeclub

The black rubber insert is glued in place, but it is in there well. Mine hasn't fallen out, although admittedly, it's not one of my more frequently used knives (mine sits in my tool box as an extra utility/beater knife should I need it). Worst case, if it does come out, you can just glue it back into place.

Or, if you want something along those lines (shorter blade and relatively stout knife), the Cryo or Cryo G10 may be worth a look.

u/nward21 · 2 pointsr/EDC

After much deliberation and research, I just ordered myself a Kershaw Cryo 1555ti

Thanks again

u/ethanzh · 2 pointsr/EDC

The Tenacious looks good for the price.

So now I'm down to 3 I would like to choose from,

  • Kershaw Cyro

  • Kershaw Leek

  • and the Spyderco Tenacious

    So I think I might be leaning towards the Leek, except for what you said about the thin steel. Will that be a major issue? The Tenacious looks good, only thing is that it doesn't have to spring loaded opening, which is something I didn't really know I wanted until now. Then there's the Cyro, which has a slightly smaller blade (1/4 of an inch shorter), but it also has the spring loaded system, only thing is it doesn't look as simplistic as the Leek, but I think I can get over that. Which would you recommend of the Cyro and the Leek which I've posted? Because I realize there are different variations of each knife, but if I get either, I will be getting the ones I've linked to. Thanks.
u/darthrio · 2 pointsr/EDC

Its a bit pricy but I love the Olight S1 Baton Mini in copper and the Kershaw Cryo

u/slowwburnn · 2 pointsr/knives

For cheap assisted knives, Kershaw is the way to go. You can get an OSO sweet under $20, or a cryo under $25, both of which are popular around here in their price range. If you have a little more to spend, the Leek is a great choice.

u/Peoples_Bropublic · 2 pointsr/knives

How about a Kershaw Cryo ($25)?

For a bit more money, there's a Kersahw Blur with S30V, but the blade is a touch too long.

The kershaw Cryo is an awesome little knife and it can be had for $30. the only issue is it isn't partially serrated BUT it comes wicked sharp from Kershaw. I got mine in last week and I absolutely love it.

I check this subreddit every day, and it's inspired me to upgrade my EDC. You can see the old post for the crappy gear I had before.

I really wanted to slim down - I felt my pockets were too bulky. Lurking here helped me find the gear that fits my needs and doesn't give me unwanted bulges in my pants.

New gear:
iPhone 5
Dash wallet
Bic Lighter with duct tape
Carmax Chapstick
Keys: motorcycle, house, bottle opener and gun safe
Cheapest pen I haven't lost yet
Stylus Pro Black LED
Kershaw Cryo
$10 aviators from 7-11. I lose so many sunglasses.

EDIT: Add link + fix formatting

The Kershaw Cryo is a fantastic little knife. Great EDC for anyone on a budget.

Sounds like you want a Kershaw Cryo.

I carry the Kershaw Cryo but, I'd hardly call it "Ultralight" @ a tad over 4 oz.

A pocketknife. You don't need a big one, just a pen knife or Swiss Army Knife is fine.

I don't know about how left-handed friendly this is but you could give the Kershaw Cyro. The Speedsafe mechanism is incredibly nice to use. Pocket clip is swappable for left handed carry.

I really like my Kershaw Cryo. Very inexpensive (<$25 online) and a great size for EDC. The blade is easy to maintain and came from the factory with an excellent edge on it.

It also has an adjustable pocket clip and speed-safe assisted opening which is a nice feature in a relatively inexpensive knife.

I would get the Cryo. It meets all your criteria.

5 knives

Above is a link to 5 folding knives that may or may not fit what you're looking for and 4 are well within your price range of under $120. One is slightly above at 139.00 on Amazon, but the Chrome extension called Honey is currently allowing a $10 discount. All are made by Kershaw/ZT.

  1. The ZT 0350 is the top knife with the curvy ergonomics to it. It's probably the most basic ZT folder and is currently the only ZT knife I own. It is good for larger hands, it's very sturdy (and heavy) and technically more than $120 but only barely.

  2. The Kershaw Fatback is next to it and has a more triangular appearance. Relatively newer offering from Kershaw, I think, but is certainly proving to be popular. It's as long when closed as the ZT 0350 but is thicker from one scale to the other on the handle AND is lighter. The actual specs for this and all the knives mentioned can be found by Googling them. This knife is currently under $25.

  3. The Kershaw Skyline is probably the most well known knife, I wouldn't be surprised is this has its own lore here on r/knives. It's popular for a reason being lightweight, and well tested as an older, mainstay model from Kershaw. As you can see, mine is showing wear and scratches compared to the other knives! Amazon is currently listing the basic version of this knife for $46.

  4. The next one is the Kershaw OD-1 which is DISCONTINUED. I didn't know this when I took a photo of it for you and started this list. This means the price is higher than you'd pay normally and isn't really available on Amazon or in stores. You can find it on the link provided (I think) which is to one Stop Knife Shop, you can also try Ebay or Bladeforums to find a used one. The link provided appears to be offering this knife for $53, but I don't know what condition that's in. The one I bought on Amazon back in like 2013 or whatever was ~$30-$35. I actually have two of them, but I'm not sure where the other came from. They are cool knives, fun to play with, but not tacticool.

  5. The last one pictured is the Kershaw Cryo and is currently available on Amazon for ~$19. It is the smallest of the knives shown, smaller than the Fatback with the triangular handle by what looks like 2 inches when open. This would be a great beater knife, something that would be a fine flipper and used briefly but would not be comfortable for extended use, especially in large hands. If memory serves, there's two different Cryo models with 2 different sizes, but I have only the one you see. Could be the smaller of the two models.

    NOT PICTURED but I do also have the Kershaw Blur which Amazon is listing at ~$35 currently which is HIGHLY recommended even though it doesn't have a flipper. It's spring assisted opening and a very comfortable grip for larger hands. That price is so good, they're normally $55-$60 that I'm grabbing one of them again as an extra.

    I could list like 4-5 more Kershaw knives but my comment is too long already. If you would prefer more variety in recommendation, Spyderco has some solid options but if you want to go BALLS DEEP into tacticool, one of my most valued knives because it was bought for me as a gift was the Cold Steel AK-47. This knife is quite a bit larger than the ZT shown but is nearly the same price at ~$125-130 on Amazon. You might be able to find it cheaper on Ebay. Be careful though, there is the regular and mini version!

Im gonna go with a Kershaw Cryo.

Its an all metal knife with a nice size blade. The blade and the handle are both made of the same steel. Its not the best in the world, but its a good starter. It will stand up to the punishment a new knife carrier will put on it.

This little pocket knife if what I use to get rid of my wife's hair that is in my vacuum cleaner. It works great. Plus it looks cool.

I carry a pocketknife when I take my walks for this reason. I recommend this one.
