I have a friend that is partially disabled. He can do about anything for a very short period of time,But then he will pay for the exertion with an extreme amount of pain for 2 -3 days.
He can only work in security,because of his back problems. Consequently he doesn't have a lot of money to spend on a knife. Even one like this will have to be scrounged for.
He is wanting a lockng folder worn in a sheath for preferably around $60.00. He wants about a 4" blade and a fairly large (thicker) handle that is comfortable to hold.
A fairly wide clip,drop,or spearpoint blade would be the most desireable,not necessarily in that order.
The only other requrement is that
it needs to be able to be opened with one hand,flickable preferred.
I have seen a lot of discussion on some really nice folders and such,but these are almost always the top of the line with the most recent technology and materials.
Isn't there just a nice everyday pretty good quality general all around use knife that could be used for self-defense if necessary
on the market anywhere that sells for between $60.00 and $75.00 ???
I have looked,but I do better with holding something like this in my hand and feeling it for a bit and comparing it to others.
I can pick one up at a store and think "This feels pretty nice,but I really wish this was different."
I can then go to another store and check one out and think." I like this one better in this area,but I really liked the feature better on the other one." I find it very difficult to try and choose on of these from websites.
Folders have never been my strongpoint because I really like fixed blades better and usually have one somewhere about my person. If there is something like this out there I will probably buy
Just think of it as a "Saturday night special" kind of knife.
Thanks. I know you guys can help with this!
