    Hey bladeforums,

    I'm looking to pick up a Titanium Framelock folder with a budget of 450usd. Ideally, the knife must have a blade length under 3.3 inches. I currently have a spydiechef that I love, but am looking for suggestions other than spyderco.

    Let me know any good suggestions you have, I appreciate all answers.

    I love my ZT 0393glcf but if you have a budget of 450 I'd probably go with a Chris reeve.
    Also WE is making some pretty cool ones. Just looked at Blade HQ's new arrivals.

    My two that get the most pocket time are a ZT 0808 and a Spyderco Sage 2.

    It really depends on what you want in a knife.

    Opening method
    Steel requirements
    What you'll be using it for.

    The more detail the more we can help you.

    Tell us more. Is it going to be a user? Do you want a slicing blade like the Spydiechef you have or a thick and chunky pry bar. Does thinness behind the edge matter basically?

    Do you want an art knife? A good lookin knife. Possibly a fidget knife. Something to chill with on the couch. It will cut some things maybe.

    What kind of deployment methods?

    I had the small CF insingo and it's a very nice knife, my favorite of the Sebenzas I've owned, though it didn't end up being a keeper for me.

    I carry this LionSteel TiSpine semi-regularly and like it a bunch. It fits a titanium integral with a pretty damascus blade into your budget too:


    It's a very pretty knife, but I've also found it an entirely pleasant knife to carry and use. It had a tiny bit of lock stick when it arrived, but that wore off quickly. The shiny one-piece handle, while gorgeous, is a finger print magnet, though.
