    I know they are a bit more than 40 but if you want a quality blade look at SOG knives. They are sharp as a razor and even have some spring assisted models that are similar to a switch blade.

  2. Gerber makes some decent knives that you can usually find locally for that price. They are durable and the edge is ok, doesn't hold that well but not bad for the price.

    I second the above posters suggestion of a SOG or bench made. Both cost about double what you want to spend but I promise you, you will Be happy. I Carry a SOG flash 2 on my weak side and a bench made griptilian on my strong side. Both great knives and fast to deploy.

  3. I like the CRKT (Columbia River Knife + Tool) particularly this style http://www.crkt.com/M16-14-Special-F...WKS-Veff-Combo

  4. Thanks for the suggestions!

    I'm not worried about spending the money, I'm worried about spending a lot and losing it. I just lost my Gerber paraframe ($18) which wasn't a huge deal, but I liked it and wasn't happy to reach down to my pocket and realize it wasn't there. I know I had it when I started the day.

  5. (Went back and re-read the posts and realize you mentioned knives with a smaller $$$. These then don't fit the bill..lol. I'll still leave the post though)

    My top 3 knives are as follows (no particular order)

    - Benchmade Triage 915/916 (I have the 916)
    916 TriageŽ Product Detail

    - Kershaw Zero Tolerance 0300
    Zero Tolerance 0300 Black Plain Edge Knife at The Kershaw Store

    - DPx HEST/F 2.0 or DPx HEST/F Milspec (I have the 2.0; milspec is better and newer)
    http://dpgear.com/

    I have used each of these on various deployments and each have performed superbly. Absolutely no complaint about any of them. I have exposed them to heat, cold, sand, mud, cut wire, cardboard, straps, foils, clothes, etc. etc.

    *note, I do not personally recommend getting spring assisted ones if you will be exposing the knives to mud/sand etc. Can tend to gum it up and in the end hinder the opening of the knife.

  6. I carry the Spyderco "Tenacious" for my EDC knife. IMO, you can't beat this for the price. It's a quality knife that has stood up to a beating I've put on them over the years. It's light, retains a great edge, and opens flawlessly. It's the best $37 bucks I've spent in a while.

    I like Zero Tolerance knives as well, but I'd take Spyderco over anything else at this point.

    For personal defense, cor-bon dpx all the way. For range day, any cheap stuff with a brass case. I dislike the idea of a steel case.
    AM sucks ass. find me on ASF or IMF.

    I've gotta be honest, here. The first test I make is a gun's ability to cycle steel case ammo. If it doesn't eat it, I get rid of the gun (unless it's a small carry pistol for SD).

    Watching Longmire recently made me want one. I'm thinking a Dan Wesson...going big with my first 1911.

    I'd settle for a nice Springfield, too.

  12. I don't recall seeing steel case 45, but have shot aluminum case Blazers as well as a few others in brass. my 1911 doesn't seem picky, jacketed or plated only so far though, and 200-230gr.

    I'm saving for an Ed Brown. I'll have enough saved in a few years.

    Actually, I'm looking to go Springfield. I need to sell off something in the cabinet that I don't want, and then make it happen, haha.

    Hornady actually makes a steel cased match series now. I haven't shot any yet, though. I need to get my azz in gear and start reloading.

    reloading 45 is soooo simple. I've actually recruited my 5 and 9 year old kids to run the progressive press for me. they are just thrilled to death to be able to

  23. Cert of authenticity that it is indeed a Mk25 made solely for naval special warfare and not just a P226.
