    Reccomend me a good large folding knife?


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I am looking for a good folding knife on the larger side. These are the thing it must have:
    -under $100
    -blade length ~3.5 inches+
    -decent steel (especially for rust resistance)
    -Good lock that is strong (no liner locks unless they are really good)
    -adequite traction plan
    -preferably not made in China

    I am currently considering the Spyderco Endura. Made in Japan is a decent amount better than made in China, and the steel sounds good. If anyone know as a better knife that fits my description please tell me.

    I'm sure you consider Taiwan part of China...so a Recon 1 is probably out of the question.

    Spyderco Stretch would also be good, one of the Spydies I always thought of as a brilliant design. Cold Steel Lawman, Recon 1, Voyager, etc. also work if Taiwan is ok.

    What do you plan on doing with this knife? Daily carry? Into the woods? Fishing? Defense? Cutting what mostly?
    How you plan on using it could lead to different choices.

    Any of the Spydercos mentioned above are very good knives, as is the Buck 110 if you like something a bit more traditional. Also on the traditional side, the Queen Mountain Man is worth a look. Benchmade have a good range of decent sized folders.

    God, grant me the serenity to accept the knives I cannot buy, the budget to buy ones I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I got a new Spyderco para 2 s30v digi cam from a forum supported vendor for 96$. I also was able to snag the excellent Spyderco Manix 2 Xl for 94$...

    I too would recommend taking a hard look at the Stretch. I find the blade profile more becoming than the Endura, but that's just personal preference for the most part. Very reminiscent of the old Hunter model.

    Large cold steel voyager plain edge is great if you are looking for a large lightweight folder

    Spyderco Endura, Stretch, and Para2 are great choices but for something larger maybe a CS Voyager L or XL

    Manix 2 XL is a great knife, and fits your bill.

    Good call! I'd say it's a perfect match for the OP's wish list

    under $100 check
    ~3.5 inches+ 3.86" = check
    decent steel (SS) S30V = check
    good strong lock Ball Bearing Lock = check
    adequate traction plan DOUBLE CHECK
    not made in China USA = check
