    I kinda want to force myself to carry a fixed blade more. I want right around the 100 dollar price range, US made preference, feather lite, good or great sheath.

    Izula with custom scales look appealing to me. Any reason not to get one?

    So are you asking us to talk you out of it? Because it's a great knife that seems to check all your boxes. So if you can afford it, do it.

    Its a small knife, that may be one con, unless you like small knives.

    Also check out the white river backpacker. Comes with a better sheath, better steel. You can add g10 handles for $20-$25 or something like that.

    I have a BHQ fire ant red Izula it's my only fixed blade I regularly EDC

    the sheath is awful I got myself an Armatus Carry Architect sheath which is fantastic

    so no reason not to get one

    Love my Izula, can't go wrong with the 2.
    Go for it, it's a wonderful little blade.

    Because the ESEE 3 doesn’t have a weird hole in the handle.

    It's nice, especially with TKC scales. Kinda thick behind the edge though.

    Do any of us really need a reason not to buy? What a horrible concept. :D

    I've really been liking mine since I got it a few weeks ago. Haven't use it a lot yet but it's a great little blade.

    Last year I bought an old USA Carbon V Recon Tanto that I like a lot. It’s long and slender. Got a helluva deal just a little used on the ‘bay at about $55. Old ones come with a decent leather sheath. I may get a kydex one for it at some point.

    I know there are mixed opinions on the maker but I really like my DPX HEST. It’s one of my favorite fixed blades.

    Only if you find something else you like better
    The Izula is a nice knife and I have had a couple over the years-multiple carry options.
    They re-sell well if you decide it isn't for you

    It’s a nice knife which was made better by the longer grip for it. I didn’t have one of these. I opted for the BK 14, then sold it to buy a BK 24.

    That was my path as well buying the BK-14 first and BK-24 second. Ultimately I preferred the BK-14 for ease of sharpening. That said, I use the White River Backpacker Pro more now since I got it and the little BK's stay at home for the most part.

    My biggest criticism of these little blades is that they tend to be a bit thick behind the edge as noted earlier in the thread.

    I like it as a small fixed blade for general use rather than food prep. I have a convex edge on mine with the thought of using it for field dressing, but that has not happened yet. I made a set of scales for it.
