Kershaw Blur

Good all-around knife. Something along the lines of $100 or so suggested retail but shopping around takes it down to about $60. Spring assisted opening allows for a quick presentation, and while it isn't a Schrade Old Timer that can lop off medium sized branches, it's as sharp as a reasonable priced blade can be, retains the edge and can be resharpened with a decent stone. And I do mean stone, not one of those useless burr-removing sticks that chefs employ. Not comparing it to a $750 ninja special such as those advertised in many of the gun magazines, but for the price it's hard to beat. 3 and a half inch blade, weighs 4 ounces, and the carrying clip can be adjusted or removed altogether.
