Benchmade can't be beat. There is some excellent knife options out their, but their folding knives are my favorite. I ordered this knife as a Christmas present for my Dad, as I already had one. He is a pipeline technician in the oilfield, and he carried an old Gerber that was dull as butter knife and had a broken tip. I got him this, because it will stand up to hard everyday use. The steel is excellent, holds edge for a long time, easy to sharpen with the right system, and I love the handle material. This knife is just big enough for for large tasks, but not to large for EDC. Get one and you won't be disappointed.
Pros: USA made, sharp, great steel, great handle material, affordable
