Kershaw Scallion (Small, assisted opening, steel is not so great)
Kershaw Skyline (good size, G10, nice blade shape, steel can get to a crazy level of sharpness)
Kershaw OSO Sweet (pretty cool assisted opener, great price there on amazon)
Spyderco Tenacious (same decent steel on the OSO Sweet and Byrd, good G10, good blade shape, Spyderco quality, great value)
Byrd Cara2 (Great value, overseas production brings prices way down on all Byrd knives)
Here is one above your price range
And one below your price range
dono about the engraving, the spyderco tenacious is a great EDC for this price point though. i have the same one with the black blade, carry it every day. really nice little folder
I'd suggest you save up a little bit more and get something more worthwhile. A Spyderco Tenacious can be had for $34, for example.
If you are dead set on a $20 knife, atomedge's mention of a Byrd Robin or even a Byrd Cara Cara 2 would be a good place to start.
How about $34.99?
get something not so expensive for your first knife. Here's why:
-Get used to it. Carrying it around, deploy and fold, cut fruit at work with it (see your co-worker's faces when you pull it out). Doing this will let you get use to having one (unfortunately, you will probably lose it).
-Use the shit out of it. cut paper, cardboard, pencils, test it out on thin twigs, branches etc.
-Sharpen it. I don't mean with some cheap easy way of doing it like with a sharpmaker; use a sharpening stone, learn the angles.
-Learn to respect it. No matter how careful you think you are, you will eventually cut yourself doing something you feel is the safe way. You will have a new appreciation for this knife.
I recommend either of these knives (learn the different ways knives can be deployed) http://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tenacious-Handle-Folding-Plain/dp/B001EI7578/ thumb hole deployment

Find how the knives also carry in your pocket (left pocket, right pocket, tip up or tip down).
These should be your first steps into getting and owning your first folding knife.
Can't go wrong with a Spyderco Tenacious for the money.
Which model leatherman do you have? I love my skeletool cx, but it has the blade on the side which you said you don't like.
As far as legality, that's up to you to figure out length restrictions, open/concealed carry restrictions, your school's policy, etc.
Check out the Spyderco Tenacious: Spyderco Tenacious G-10 Handle Folding Plain Edge Knife https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001EI7578/ref=cm_sw_r_awd_JmUAwbFDEZ57J
Or search for any Kershaw branded knife...for the price, you'll be satisfied. You aren't gonna find much in the way of quality if you want a multitool in that price range.
Microstream The clip on mine is different but I think this is the same light. Love it.
Spyderco Tenacious Easily the highest value knife I've ever had/seen. I cut and pry the shit out of stuff with this knife on a daily basis.
For a few more dollars you could go with the spyderco tenacious which as far as I can tell is basically just a larger version of the one you picked out.
Leatherman sidekick is a great multitool. $45.
For just a knife the Spyderco Tenacious is a fantastic folder for the price at $35.
Spyderco Tenacious. My current EDC and one of the most frill free knives I own.
Lol, alright for example:
There are a LOT more suggestions I could add...
Not trying to be rude, but both are pretty awful. Spend another $20 and get a spyderco tenacious. It will last you years. https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001EI7578/ref=mp_s_a_1_2?ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1504583062&amp;sr=8-2&amp;pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&amp;keywords=spyderco+tenacious&amp;dpPl=1&amp;dpID=21SYwroxw1L&amp;ref=plSrch
/r/knives is a great place to ask this kind of stuff.
This is a great knife that I EDC and its only $35. Perfect starting knife.
Well heres a list of some from amazon.
Hope that helps!
PS if you aren't sure about your knife laws check out this PDF just scroll to your state and check. Also /r/Knives can probably help you if you have more specific questions about knives. Although going to that sub-reddit will also probably mean spending more than $30 so be forewarned.
The Ontario RAT1 and [Spyderco Tenacious] (http://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tenacious-Handle-Folding-Plain/dp/B001EI7578) are great knives in the $30 range that can accomplish all the activities you have listed without an issue.
This list and thread from the sidebar lists many good suggestions as well.
I've EDC'd a Spyderco Tenacious for about a year and I love it. If I had to replace it, I would easily consider another Tenacious, or a slightly smaller Persistence.
Part of me really wants a Leek but I'd also like a Kershaw Blur for the assisted opening, and if you can set aside an extra $20, you can spring for the version w/ S30V steel. All of these are within your price range.
Save 8 bucks and get the satin blade.
I'm rather fond of the Spyderco Tenacious.
I'm in IT as well and perform very similar tasks. I use the Spyderco Tenacious for everything. It's easy as hell to sharpen and the flat ground blade takes a wicked sharp edge. It has stainless steel liners, but they're skeletonized so the knife is still pretty light. The G-10 is nicer than the stuff I've got on knives that are well past the hundred dollar price point.
As for draw speed, you can do a bootleg wave using zipties. Here's mine. Best $30 I've ever spent.
If you are on a budget. I would recommend a Tenacious. Most people on /r/knives would agree as well. If you aren't on a budget I would look at the Benchmade Griptillian or Mini Griptillian. Both are extremely solid choices.
Here are some affordable options.

About to head out and see Interstellar. Has anyone seen it?
My favorite under-50 knife is the Spyderco Tenacious. They make a couple of smaller knives at a similar price point too.
Ontario Rat is another good value - about $25 - good tough knife for outdoor stuff.
Ooh. $25 is tough. There are so many good options for $30-$35...
Here are a couple options around $25
CRKT Ruger LCK
And here are some options around $30
Sanrenmu Land 910+
Steel Will Cutjack 3 Inch and 3.5 inch
Buck 110 Slim
And some $35+ options
The Spyderco Tenacious is a great knife for under $50.
$40.31 on amazon. Lol.
For camping, between those two I'd go with the Skyline. I've got a Leek, and I love it, but the slim blade seems a bit delicate for camp site use.
I bought a Spyderco Tenacious for camping. It's a good-sized, sturdy folder that's not so expensive that losing it would ruin the trip.
I carry two knives a lot of the time. Almost anytime I've not carried one of them I've been in a situation where I needed one.
I carry the swiss army specifically for the opener and toothpick. Swear to god 90% of the time I leave it at home, thinking it's stupid over kill to carry it I end up with something in my teeth or a bottle needs opening.
The other is just a really nice easy to deploy big knife that's great for a lot of things.
I go with this for the following reasons :
might switch to this now that i see exactly what i use it for
I felt the same way before I got a spyderco, now I love the damn thing. The hole is incredibly functional. You might want to try a Tenacious, its only 30 bucks.
A better question for r/knives. Depending on your budget, I can make a number of recommendations. If you're not looking to spend a lot, check out Kershaw and some low-end Spyderco models.
I would look at:
A RAT, a Tenacious, an Opinel, or a Cryo are the usual choices. What's wrong with 8cr13mov steel? It's not the best but for sub $30, it'll get the job done.
http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001EI7578 I carry this, it's nice for the price
Most cops are normal people. Then you have people like this, who always make the news for being idiots.
edit : This is why I carry a big knife and hopefully soon a legally concealed handgun. Off duty cop or not, if you're looking to randomly beat a strangers ass you should look somewhere else.

Spyderco Tenacious for $37 NEW with free shipping on Amazon.
Zing (serrated) for $35 shipped new with free shipping on Amazon (seems to be discontinued).
You may want to reduce the price on at least the Tenacious because it's a shitty deal. The Zing would be reasonable, but it's a blem (even if you can't find it) and IS used.
Papa Johns worker with Irma right around the corner.
Top Row (from left to right):
Oakley SI Half Jacket 2.0: $72 with knockoff polarized mirrored lenses bought on amazon here for $20.
Leatherman Pro Wave: Not a special edition of Wave, just bought through Leatherman's Pro program. $55 with the clip found here for $5.
Timex Ironman Classic 30: Great $30-$40 digital watch that through everything has yet to hiccup, let alone fail, once.
iPhone 7: Matte Black. I'm one of those people who actually doesn't love or hate apple of android. I just happen to have a macbook and an iPhone, and that works for me.
Otterbox Symmetry Series: Wanted a $35 case to match my phone and got one. Lint and dust all over the port openings and inside the case?! Works great, just likes to get dirty.
Oakley SI Flak Beta Prism: $117 through Oakley's standard issue, these are the steel frames thanks to some confusing customer service calls. Polarized lenses with their mumbo jumbo technology actually make colors pop a bit.
Black Leather Wallet: I don't know, probably found at Kohls or something. Nothing special, just gets the job done.
Field Notes Expedition: Awesome $13 notebooks that use a plasticy paper for writing in any conditions. Finally halfway through my first book, as I like to use all of the real estate available on each page. A bit worn, but character, right?
Amazon Special Wristwatch: There's so much conflicting branding everywhere, who knows who makes it. Anyway, have had it for a while and it seems to tell time. The band is a bit weird, but what would one expect for $16?
Car Keys: RIP me. I drive a minivan. sigh. Oh well, it's what I got.
Spyderco Tenacious: Perfect $40 knife if you don't want a beater and also don't want your wallet to scream in agony. I just need a good whetstone set to be able to do it justice.
Bose Soundsport Earbuds: Stay in my weird ears. I exercise regularly, but that doesn't mean I like it. Music helps me forget the lactic acid burning my muscles. They don't make the audio-only ones anymore, so here's a $99 pair for apple devices.
Wristbands: Air Force Academy in blue and Domestic Violence in purple. I wear these because I don't want to expose myself to the world of "Etsy." yikes.
Chrome Fisher Space Pen Bullet With Clip: ~$20 and so damn slippery. Awesome pen for being a pen, but I need something more practical for greasy hands. Any ideas? Not looking for anything more than like 30 bucks.
Kizer Vagnino Velox 2: A beautiful flipper on ballbearings. HOLY cow this thing flies out with vengeance and feels like a million bucks. A true gentleman's folder. However, I am not a gentleman... I see some ugly grip tape in it's future to make up for impracticality of no serrations on the back of the blade or handle for grip. Before anyone tries to complain about a 17 yr old with a $200 knife, I found 'er on Massdrop for $82 after shipping. Would I say it is worth the 13 hours of work needed to pay for it? Yes. Yes I would.

Welcome to the club :)
Kershaw cryo ii
And a sharpener:
Smiths tri stone
Lansky 5 stone system
Because a knife ain't shit if you can't sharpen it.
Just to add a few more that fall well under budget and are still awesome.
In that price range, from lowest to highest price, I found these in a quick search on Amazon:
All of these use pretty much identical materials, and have identical features and quality. So go with whichever you like best.
The steel used on these is middle of the road (the same as used in your Tremor), but overall quality is outstanding for the price. All around these will outperform and feel nicer than any Kershaws in the same price class, though I have nothing against Kershaw's better knives.
For that price range? This
Spyderco Tenacious. 3.375in blade, 8cr13mov steel (chinese aus8, a good value steel) liner lock (easy one hand closing) thumb hole for one hand opening, movable pocket clip for all 4 carry options (lefty righty tip up tip down) (need a torx screwdriver-> go to ACE) G10 handle (good shit. They line nuclear reactor cores with it.) BEST Bang for your buck
You really can't go wrong with the Spyderco Tenacious. Its inexpensive, uses a suitable steel, and gives you a TON of bang for your buck.
My final advice is buy a tenacious and bang it around for a while, then when you have a better handle on what you like and don't like, break the bank. Good luck!
Twitch II is good.
So is the Skyline
But my favorite is still the Tenacious. What an awesome EDC knife that sucker is. The metal may not be the best, but it makes up for it in durability and it's so easy to sharpen. The knife is of excellent quality and for less than 30$. If you want a smaller blade, get the Persistence (I wouldn't, the Tenacious is the perfect size for me).
Spyderco Tenacious family are all in the $25-35 range if you want a real Spyderco.
Tenacious 3 3/8" blade
Persistence 2 3/4" blade
Ambitious 2 1/4" blade
Personally a budget spyderco.
With a mini swiss.
Is acceptable for most applications, a larger multi tool is good for in the car or around the house though.
I seriously can not possibly say enough good things about my spyderco tenacious. Get one, or another in the budget line (persistence, resilience)
May I recommend a new knife? This one is one of the best ones you can get for cheap.
The Tenacious looks good for the price.
So now I'm down to 3 I would like to choose from,
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.
I only collect Spyderco knives so I'm a bit biased, but in that price range I would recommend one from their budget line. Either the Tenacious $42, Persistence $38, or Ambitious $29, listed from largest to smallest. Also check out the sidebar at /r/knifeclub for more suggestions.
First "real" (by real I mean name-branded) knife I purchased: The Kershaw Chill
A bit of a stronger blade "upgrade": The Tenacious by Spyderco.
The next one I plan to buy: Kershaw Blur
I really like Kershaw for quality. Just my $.02 to help give you an idea of what's out there.
I've had this: http://www.amazon.com/Spyderco-Tenacious-Handle-Folding-Plain/dp/B001EI7578 for the past two years and have used it heavily for work and its held up great.
Top left circle is my badge holder. I didn't feel like blurring out my badge so I just flipped it over.
Top middle is my keyport That holds 5 keys and one light. Its awesome!!
Top right is my slim line wallet. This helped slim down a thick old tri fold that I had.
Middle left is my spyderco knife. I like it and it has definitly came in handy a few times.
Middle right is my off duty glock 26. I love this as an off duty weapon. I've upgraded a few things on it too. I use an IWB alien holster for the Glock but didn't feel like taking it out of my pants.
Bottom is a case for my S5.
Missing is my watch that I wear, G-Shock.
I found my CRKT Ichi, amazon link, on ebay for $15.
Also you would be fine buying any Spyderco, Benchmade, Kershaw, or CRKT, that fits your budget.
I also have a Spyderco Tenacious that I love.
The wingman is only $27, and the tenacious is only $34
I have 2 knives. A Spyderco Tenacious G-10, and a Kershaw 1660 Ken Onion Leek
I'll start with the course diamond and do about 20 passes towards the cutting edge (as if I'm trying to shave the sharpener instead of scraping the blade against it) on each side moving the diamond at an angle so the entire blade was touched. Then the same with the fine diamond, then the same with the Arkansas stone. I'm using the shallow angle option on the blade holder.
I don't strop the blades afterwards with leather.
Good idea about marking the blade edge with a Sharpe, I'll try that.
Cannot go wrong with a spyderco tenacious ...good quality knife for a reasonable price $33
I have a Spyderco Tenacious that I got and did not like. I threw away the box, but I only wore it for a day and did not cut anything at all with it.
What would you be willing to trade for it? If you want it.
This Spydie with a black blade and a brown handle
Here's a few of my favorite budget knives. Can't go wrong with any of them! I don't have any to trade otherwise I gladly would. Here's some amazon links, all prices include free shipping (and Amazon is the best.)
Spyderco Tenacious($40): http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B001EI7578/ref=mp_s_a_1_sc_1?qid=1408631106&amp;sr=8-1-spell&amp;pi=AC_SX110_SY165_QL70

I bought this one.
Somebody probably mentioned this one already, but the Spyderco Tenacious is a great folder. If you have Amazon Prime, the price is only about $35. I think that is what you typically see them going for in stores too. Basically you should not be paying the $60 ticket price on one, but people (my dad included) swear by them.
I have a Benchmade Griptilian that I have carried for years, but for the price you can't beat the Spyderco.
Here is the desktop version of your link
Quality tools cost a bit more. It will last longer, and give you better service.
Spyderco makes several good EDC choices IMHO. Look at a Tenacious or a Delica to start.
SOG also makes quality knives. I'm partial to the Flash II Tanto, but it comes in several blade styles.
Either way, make sure you get a good sharpening system and learn to keep your knife sharp.
A sharp knife is a safe knife
This is a great knife! Spyderco Tenacious $41
Sure, I can understand that, though I think you should consider whether 3-4 'meh' quality knives is better to have than 1 solid knife. I went from Kershaws and CRKT's to Spyderco (there are other manufacturers if you don't like Spyderco) and noticed a difference in what I was getting for my money. I also started giving away a lot of knives because I found myself carrying 1-3 out of the 20 I had. I'd much rather have combined all the useless knives I bought into one decent one looking back on it.
That said, most everyone goes through their 'collect a bunch of cheap stuff' phase and I don't want to kill the fun of that. Realistically though, I'd take all the money you spent on those four and get one of these instead, if I had a time machine.
In that price range, I'd recommend something made by Kershaw, the Spyderco Tenacious, or an Ontario Rat. if you give me more criteria I can narrow down the suggestions as well.
It's pretty normal where I come from. A folding knife, a multitool with a knife, and another one. I'll probably get another in the future.
This is a fantastic knife at a great price. I have the same knife with the exception being mine is the serrated version. I have many knives, quite a few of them are much more expensive than my Tenacious but it's the one that ends up in my pocket most often.
Okay here are some suggestions
While they are not tactical opinels are really nice and are near $10 and come in lots of sizes.
Also with all the stuff you want to carry, It might be wise to invest in a maxpediton micro pocket organizer which is about $15
If you got any questions just ask.

Why not a Spyderco Tenacious?
Granted, it is about twice as heavy as the KISS, but with the weight you get G10 scales, a practical blade (Chisel grind tantos are made for stabbing people, they're profoundly "meh" for utility), and Spyderco quality. I've heard good things about CRKT, but you mind as well spend the extra couple bucks for a much better knife (IMO).
Spyderco Tenacious for $35. I really don't know what better deal you would want. Maybe it's not quite what you're looking for, though.
