Default Recommend an everyday budget knife.

Not looking for anything too crazy. The main thing I'd need it for is cutting cardboard and tape on a regular basis. Other than that it'll be a self defense weapon I suppose. I've got a Kershaw with a built in screwdriver that's handy as hell but the blade is crap.

Thanks in advance!

EDC for cutting cardboard and boxes, I'd just get a locking one that uses utility blades. Keep a small pack with you in case you smoke a blade. If that is not what you were after and want something pretty, there are many in the 20-30 price range that seem to be decent.

This guy seems to have a pretty good selection for decent prices: http://www.ebay.com/sch/mountainclmb...p2047675.l2562

After my EDC went scuba diving a few weeks ago, I have decided that cheap is better. When your $100 knife goes diving but never comes back up for air, it's a bad day. Even worse when a customer kicks it in the lake for you....

I thought about it.... Hoping water goes down enough when fall comes around that I can walk out to where it is.

Buy anything here for $20-40. Blur or Leek are my favorites.

Avoid Gerber.

I'd say under $60 if I can get something decent.

For that price I would also consider a spyderco delica 4. Any of those kershaws will be awesome. I am just a big spyderco fan.

I carry a older model of knife from Home Depot that has removable blades. Been carrying it for a while now and does everything just fine without bringing a fancy one and keeping my fancy knives from getting lost. It's one of the first generations of the Husky knives.

Opinel if you want something with a cool story behind it, some style, and a reasonable price. You can find them from $7-$100+. I generally run with a $10-$12 version.

http://www.opinel-usa.com/

If you look around, you can find them cheaper

I think you guys will be really happy with the Kershaw purchases from Dave (aka KershawGuy). He has the best prices, the only inventory of blems, and great customer service. The Blur and Scallion are both great designs are rock solid knives ... better than anything in the same price range you'll find in store on online.

If you're looking at some of the more expensive models on his site (ie anything over $100), email him via the contact form and ask him for his latest price list. Prices on some, like the 300/301/302/303, are much lower on his price list that he'll email to you.

Good to know, currently I don't really have an interest in expensive knives though, they are just tools to me personally. He seems quick, I saw he shipped mine out today.

I picked up just one of those Smith & Wesson Special Tactical knives they had up at O'Reilly's a couple years back and I have used that knife countless times. It's a little on the bigger side, but absolutely love it as an everyday budget knife.

Got my Kershaw Scallion for $25 shipped, from Zefs link (Kershaw Guy) liking it a lot. I have no idea why it is a blem, it looks perfect to me.
