I love pocket knives and am looking for a new one. I have been carrying a Gerber recently with a 3 inch blade and a clip for my pocket.

Any suggestions as to what to carry would be appreciated. I really don't care about price as long as it is less than $100.00

Thanks

I'd have to vote for a US made knife first. Wouldn't touch a knife made with chinese steel.

My personal favorites are the Benchmades. Their service after the sale is pretty amazing. I carry an old 4" AFCK (about 15 years old now) that they have completely rebuilt several times including a blade regrinding when I broke a tip. They have replaced the scales once, all of the side plate screws and the pivot once. All it's cost me was the postage TO Benchmade twice. I can't think of anything I've ever owned that was backed like that pocket knife has been.

They also offer free sharpening service for all of their knifes. Mail it in and get back with a factory edge. I've used that service on my serrated blade knifes a few times. Wife carries a Benchmade, both sons carry one and I carry one of several.. (-:}

I do have about 30 or so pocket knifes of various mfg. but the only ones I really carry are the Benchmades and ocasionally a tiny pen knife made by Cutco (super little knife and factory backed as well as the Bencmade).

I carry a Benchmade "Combat Auto" My Dad carries the new infidel straight out the top stiletto (even on retraction).

Case is my Gentlemen knife or working around the house/ranch

For cutting rope, cardboard, paper, carving wood.ETC
IMO. I would get one of the super steels. They hold an edge the longest but are harder to sharpen. But then again I would rather be using my knife than sharpening it.
The best super steels out there for knives are:
S90V,CPM10V, CPM M4 and ZDP 189.
Great all-round blade materials that will hold a good edge and will sharpen up easy.
D2, VG-10, 154 CM or S30V

I like buying knives from these guys:

Not sure where your located but if you are in Houston or get to town, every knife lover should see the selection at Turner Hardware on Hempstead Hwy. Theyt have more knives than a good knife show. For the money Moore Maker is a good knife that will be something that can be handed down.
