Most Highly Recommended: Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara II

  • 4 Position clip
  • Spine jimping
  • David Boye Dent
  • Full Flat Ground Plain Edge
  • Handle can be engraved or embellished
Blade Length:  3 3/4 in
Closed Length:  4 7/8
Overall Length:  8 1/2 in
Blade Steel: 8Cr13MoV
Weight:  5.6oz
@ Knifeworks* for $23.95 plus shipping. The full flat grind is fantastic, and this knife is simply the best bang for the buck I've yet to find. Also available in G-10 scales, and that reduces the weight to 4.3 ounces. The original Cara Cara is also a good bargain, though not nearly ground as well, and can be had in plastic or stainless steel scales for approximately the same price. 

I've used 8Cr13MoV steels for years now. Properly heat treated, they'll take a good edge that'll last a while, and are quite corrosion resistant.
