    I don't own a single knife under $50. My least expensive knife would be a Spyderco Dragonfly 2 ZDP-189. After that, everything is over $100.

    That would be an excellent budget knife then!

    I'm carrying a $34 Kershaw Skyline, but it has an aftermarket low rise clip that cost me about $20. Is that over budget?

    Woodcraft kit knife I'm testing out. Blade and scales totaled $27
    A little buck lock back I picked up on sale for $15
    And my old SAK. Used to be camo but that wore off. Think I paid $20 for it new.

    Spyderco Cat. Great knife and great price. One of the best deals out there at about $46.

    Agreed -- and, by coincidence, what I carried today. Also had a Super Tinker ($27) as my MT.

    Colt D2 steel, CT 591.

    I really want to love this knife as it has a lot of good things going for it that I look for in a knife and I plan on regrinding the blade just to see what it's capable of. But the handle has horrible ergonomics and feels like it was made for someone with very small hands and not someone who wears large size gloves. But I am still trying to get some use out of it before I mod it.

    I have a Buck Bantam BLW and I absolutely love it. I always end up grabbing it over much more expensive blades and it works great. Maybe because I don't care about it that much and I can beat on it.
