    Hello again guys

    I know this is quite an oldie but i'm afraid i need your help again!
    I'm again looking for a 3" EDC folder different from the ones i used to have.
    Any suggestions?
    Is it just me or are 3" EDC folders being a little forgoten by knife companies these days?
    It seems that more and more bigger ones are being released but not so many 3" knives!
    So guys any recommendation?
    I would like it to be under 80$ this time

    Thanks

    I had a large Insingo, as I prefer the longer blades/longer grips. Sold it/traded it before I ever got a chance to use it. I did manage to cut myself while I was wrapping it up for the Flat Rate box.
    Since you already have a small Sebbie, not sure how much difference this small Insingo will offer you.

    Have you looked at Mcusta's. I been looking hard at the Tsuchi, Gentleman's Folder and Tactility (this one may be too big for your requirements though).

    I'm gonna echo a few other guys here; get a custom folder. Find a maker (wish I could help with that) who will do exactly what you want. I have no problem with production knives, I can usually find what I want but you seem to have tried a rather large range of those, so your only real option is to design your own "perfect" knife.

    Yep, custom is the way to go. I've got a Darrel Ralph Trigger Maze that's about that size, for instance. It's a nice knife.

    If you don't mind the non-one hand opening, then RevDevil's suggestion of a slip joint or small lock back may be the way to go. Some of them are really well made, aesthetically pleasing, etc... Great Eastern Cutlery makes most out of 1095 but some are available in 440c, if stainless is your preference. You really have a delimited field of possibility--I go with a para2 due to its 3.1 inch cutting surface. I also carry a GEC Northfield #42 Missouri Trader lock back for when the para2 is 'inappropriate'...

    I had a similar list to yours and sold off all.
    I did keep my acies2 though.

    That would probably be the best thing to do.
    I have the design already in mind but don't have the cash for it right now
    Will send you an email to talk about it though

    The Acies2 seems very nice indeed however they are hard to come by on this side of the world!
    Maybe one day

    Thanks for the help guys and keep it coming if you can think of alternatives.

    I've been eying a Benchmade 707 Sequel.

    or... ....Since you already tried a Strider PT how about a SJ75??

    Maybe a Microtech mini-socom?
