Default New knife suggestions

Everyone around here seems to know what they're talking about, so I figured I'd ask for suggestions. I'm thinking it's time to pick up a new knife. Basic wants are something simplistic and civilized looking. Smaller is nice, as I'm not a huge fan of stuff in my pockets, and thinner is better. Assisted open would be a cool feature, but not required at all. Pocket clip is fairly important, but not a deal breaker for a good knife. Edge doesn't matter much. If anything, I'll get a nice knife for daily carrying, but also pick up a tactical knife for use along side. Darker in color preferred. Budget would be preferred of under $100. So far, the Buck Nobleman, the Benchmade 556 Mini Griptilian, and the Kershaw Leek are a few that have stood out since I started looking. Thanks for any suggestions.

Got it in yesterday...played with it a bit, and it's very nice. Great size, light, and feels good in the pocket. Thanks for the suggestion!

I love mine. Tip is pretty fragile but it's a great EDC

For something smaller in the same vein, check out the Kershaw Chive.

Think I might return my leek and get a BM mini grip. Thoughts?
