    Depends on the usage but I really like my Byrd Wings Slipit and Condor Bushlore. SAKs are right up there too.

    personally i don't like the cheaper spydercos that much. though i guess i wouldn't mind a dragonfly or a ladybug . . . but anyways my all time favorite folder of reasonable size under $50 . . the leek? i also like the buck 110 a lot. really every kershaw i've had. i got the Kershaw compound folder on a deal site for $16 shipped IIRC and it's been an awesome knife. light enough to backpack with but a pretty decent sized blade that works just fine for cooking in the woods or whatnot.

    not my photo but this is the compound folder:

    San Ren Mu 763 is an excellent knife for a small EDC. The bottle opener build into the blade when it is closed is an awesome feature. I like the aluminum handle one.
    The Enlan EL02b is another excellent knife, though a little bigger.

    Either of them have far better craftsmanship than the Chinese-Made name brands I have tried in the past (Boker, Puma, etc). Both have Axis locks and excellent fitup. Several Ebay stores sell them.

    For the haters, try the SRM 763 and you will be impressed. There are no excuses.

    SpyderCo Native, which I consider to be the best value in folding knives I have ever found.

    For some reason, I'm really diggin' my Bee L02 right now over any of my other folders. Except for the missing lanyard hole, and lack of tip up carry, I can't seem to find anything wrong with it.
