Benchmade

I have been in the military for a while and have been issued serveral knives. I love my benchmade switchblade. It is so sharp. It's lifetime guaranteed too.

I voted Buck, just because they stand behind thier products. My dad has had his Buck knife for as long as my memory will remember and he busted a chunk out of the blade doing something dumb with it. I think he was prying on the truck mirror for some reason and when he contacted Buck they told him just send it in and we will fix it, or replace it. Turned out that Dad bought a Lansky sharpening kit that had all the different stones and he (actually I ) honed out the chip and he didn't have to send it back, but the point was they were willing to fix or replace it for free.

I also just got a Knife magazine in the mail the other day and although I can't rememebr the name of the company (it wasn't BUDK) and I was really suprised to see that the prices of Buck brand knives have come down quite a bit.

Dad always carried a Buck growing up so I have one or three in my hunting bag.

I have several of both, and I do like each maker. I think I like the style of buck a little better overall. For your price range I also like the Kershaw blade trader.
