    Well worth the money... I think this was my very first "real" knife when I started reading BF back in the day.

    Yes. Stop opening threads every couple hours and buy it. Much better use of your time. :thumbup:

    Dude it's like $20 bucks. Really nice knife for the money. I've had a couple and
    bought several more as gifts for family.

    They are a good value. Just bought another two days ago to replace the one I gave away.

    Then how do you you like cheap knives if you don't buy any?

    It takes me a while to decide what I'm going to buy.:suspicion:

    Research and shopping around is half the fun. You may want to check out the clearance section @ Blade HQ. Sort low to high and you'll find a lot of great deals.

    Yes, but, the thing with low priced, affordable knives is that you can buy them. Then you can use them, get an idea if what you do and don't like, and get on with the serious business of researching and shopping for knives you can't afford.

    I'm the same way, nothing wrong with that. Fortunately, as far as folders go, I only buy Cold Steel. This narrows my search considerably.

    The knives you are opening threads about are cheap (in my opinion). Just do research and read reviews and then buy them. If you don't like them the losses will be minimal. Also instead of opening several threads maybe open just one with a few knives listed and you will hear what other people prefer.

    The Byrd line from Spyderco is worth a look. As are Kershaw's Chinese produced knives.

    I'd like to know what you have now. Is this your first knife purchase or do you have a few already? Will the knife be used for work in a warehouse, construction or for simple day to day tasks? Do you prefer one handed opening and pocket clips or is a traditional, slip joint pocket knife ok...?

    Good post, I asked a question in the former thread regarding the OPs location. There is no mention of where he/she is from, so it hinders the ability for people to offer relevant suggestions. At any rate, most knives that are under the $40-$50 mark are going to give you a reasonably decent product. As long as your expectations aren't unreasonable. Everyone has to start somewhere.
