    If you had to buy dinner for yourself (from anywhere, must buy) what would you buy with 30$ and use the remaining amount of money to buy a knife that you must use exclusively for 1 month? I would buy a victorinox one handed sentinel after buying a Spicy chicken sandwich combo from wendy's.

    2 mcdoubles, 1 mcchicken and, large orange soda, and a kershaw skyline from wally world.
    Or go to a steak house, buy a 30 dollar steak and keep the knife.

    Mr. Armadillo, you have a very twisted mind. I greatly admire that.

    I'll go with 3 White Castles, plus 1 jalapeno cheeseburger, onion rings and a large diet coke. Chase that with a Kershaw Volt 2. That would make for a good day.

    Here in the UK, that would be about 20 pounds, so I guess it would be a Doner Kebab in Naan (fast food here sucks, but the indian/pakistani food is good and almost as quick/cheap), and a Mora Companion/Robust.

    I'd hunt around online (even if I had to snipe an ebay auction) and find a NOS or very gently used vintage Boker Tree Brand 492, 493 or 494 Barlow jackknife like the sheepsfoot model I have displayed. Most of the ones available with the Delrin handles were made in the 1970s, are carbon steel with brass pins and liners, and lock up like a bear trap. A nice vintage knife to have (and use) that you can usually get with shipping for under $30 if you're careful.

    Until you know how much of that $30 will be left for the meal, plan on Ramen. You'll most likely do better than that, but even if you don't, the Tree Brand jack is worth it. In my youth, particularly while in school and having to buy textbooks, I lived on Ramen for days/weeks at a time.:)

    theres a family owned steakhouse here in town that serves a 12oz sirloin, big baked potato, texas toast and a salad on thursday nite for right at $10.
    that, plus two Budweisers would cost me $15 (we didnt say anything about tipping lol) so id have enough left over for a Mora.

    Original Black Knife from McDonalds with a Bran Muffin and a Coffee.

    That leaves $28 and change for some Beck's at the beer store.
