    my low end favorite would be the kershaw emerson cqc6. great little beater for 21$. and my favorite high end... hmm i think its either my zt0450 or my pm2. but ive got a domino on the way so it might change...

    Mine too, currently. Holy crap, that knife comes out fast, eh? Also comfortable to hold to boot!

    I may pick up the cqc-4XL as well as it's a bit longer and maybe the tanto 7k.

    High end, I'll wait a bit. Emerson fan here. Will see what I like. Definitely be interested in a larger Emerson clip point.

    Since my most carried knives are neither high end or low end, this is kind of an odd question to answer.
    Favorite high end Hinderer xm 18
    Favorite low end Buck Vantage Pro.

    oh yeah it does, it has one of the best detent of my collection and very good ergonomics. i also tought about getting the 4xl but never could pull the trigger due to the price here.

    That is essentially the Kershaw Brawler. I just gave one to a friend of mine. Decent budget folder, from a company that stands behind it.

    Can't get away from the G10 Cryo. Put a choil on it and it continues to surprise me now much I like that knife. Even has bumped out my high end, small Seb 21 with wood inlay.

    Rat 1(Low) and the ZT 0562CF(High). I set my knife buying budget at about $250 a piece. And at $240, its hard to beat that ZT.

    Today it's the Sebenza 21 Large Insingo for higher end and Byrd Meadowlark 2 Ti for lower end.

    yeah, but it's HARNDS who did it for them since years ago.


    A very decent folder, IMO much better than other Kershaws that cost 3 or 4 times more (hated my Nura...)

    Low end: Coghlan's Opinel #9 (discontinued iirc)
    High end (regular carry): ZT0770CFM4

    High end (dinners/events/occasions now): Large 21 Sebenza (made on my daughters birthday, 1 of 7 made that day), this used to be a daily carry, until the 770 landed.

    Have a 562cf in 204p landing today, so we will see what the future holds.
