    What do you think is a nice EDC for 50$ or less.
    Aside from the Cryo and Tenacious.
    If you own such a knife, let me know what's great about it:)
    Pic's are always good:thumbup:

    Kershaw Skyline. It's light, small (but fills the hand - unless you have exceptionally large mitts), unobtrusive, well-made, comfortable to hold, sharp out of the box, easy to deploy and ambidextrous (if you're coordinated enough to close it lefty... which shouldn't be too difficult with a bit of practice.

    Leek, Blur, Skyline, Delica

    The Composite Blade Leek is a bit over $50, but the difference is worth it, in my opinion, to get the D2 cutting edge. The Delica runs a bit over $50 as well, but it is so much better than the Tenacious that it's well worth the extra cost, if you are leaning towards a Spyderco.

    Buck Vantage Select. Around $25, great ergonomics, made in the USA. The black blade and the satin blade are different shape though, I prefer the black blade.

    Cold Steel Large Voyager, love mine, blade steel is good, clip point blade style is handy and the lock is awesome.

    Not sure if anybody has mentioned it but my go-to suggestion for a budget EDC knife is the Ontario Rat 1. Great knife in every way, especially when you consider the price.

    I know the following have been said but if you're looking for input here is how i would rank the suggested knives so far...

    BM Griptilian
    CS Recon
    CS Voyager (if you can find one for that price)
    Ontario Rat-1/Rat-2
    Buck 110
    Buck Vantage (Pro version is suggested)
    Kershaw Blur
    Kershaw Knockout
    Kershaw Piston
    Kershaw Leek

    Etc... etc... These are my top 10 picks. Didn't include the Skyline because i think it's a disgustingly ugly knife... i however must admit that it is decent quality and will fit your needs.

    The case sodbuster Jr runs a little over 30 and its cv steel gets scary sharp

    Probably your best bang for the buck.
    But these have a lot more outdoor applications.
