I had been carrying a sog flash II for a while and loved it, before that was a Kershaw. Both have gone down the same way: LOST.

I give up on buying a good knife for a pocket knife, tired of losing good ones and don't feel like shelling $50 out for a new SOG.

What's a good cheap pocket knife that keeps its edge?

If you really want something inexpensive, check out the Spyderco Native. Wal-Mart has just started selling them for the price of $39 bucks. They are usually close to $70 anywhere else. It totally outclasses anything else in that price range. I mean, a knife with CPM-S30V steel for under $40 bucks? How can you go wrong? It is an awesome little blade. You can only find them at select Wal-marts right now, so good luck. Heres some pics of mine:

Just piched up a Spyderco Endura II off Ebay. All stainless, VG10, half serrated. Great knife for $43. And probably one of the thinnest quality knives out there.

Just bought that spyderco native for $40 at Wallyworld and I am very impressed. Its a stout, tough little knive that will be carried daily by me. Its also razor F-ing sharp so be careful. The S30V steel is some of the best out there and should hold an edge for a while. Not all Wallyworlds carry it right now as its only being tested in some stores. I had to drive about 40 miles round trip to find a test store. What I dont like about it is that it can't be disassembled and cleaned like my benchmade's, but my cheapest benchmade was about $100. For the money the native can't be beat though. Its an outstanding knife at an incredible price.

I like the "USA Earth" on that blade.

I finally decided on Benchmade - bought 2 551s and 1 556.

When you say "cheap" - here's one: Schrade 50T. I've been using them as a work knife for years. They cost $20 at Wally World.

Unfortunately, they went out of business

I scarfed up 3 from Ebay shortly after I heard the news. They last a coupla years. When they're gone...

I'm going to check my local WMs now for the Spyderco natives.

Thanks.

Take the time and look for the WM Spyderco Native. This is my new every day carry. Sharp as hell and S30V for $40. It is the perfect size in my opinion.

The Cold Steel Mini-Tanto II is a neat little knife. Quite a bit smaller than a Flash II, slim and pretty easy to sharpen.

That SOG Flash II will be hard to beat, though! I've had one for years and it is a great knife.
