Ok folks......got a $250 visa gift card and only thing I can think of is getting an auto knife. Ideas? Needs to be $250 shipped. My EDC is an Emerson CQC7 so I would like something around the same size. Thanks!

These aren't out just yet.

http://www.bladehq.com/item--Benchmade-5400-AXIS-Dual-Action--23860

It opens with the thumb studs or just pull back the Axis lock for auto open.

What I like about that is there are times when whipping out an auto might not be the best idea. It's the best of both worlds IMHO.

Look at the Benchmade 5270.

Microtech ultratech, or throw some cash in and get a combat troodon.

Killswitch is a nice one too!

Why not a Protech CQC7 auto? Seems made for your situation. I have a Protech CQC7V and like it better than my Emerson CQC7...

Also, protech>benchmade when it comes to button lock autos. Better build, stronger pivot, button, etc.

Axis autos are probably stronger, but slower.

This! I've carried my Ultratech every day for a little over a year, and it's been dead nuts reliable, and closing with a flick of a thumb is way more handy than i ever thought it would be.

Thanks for all the advice folks....but unfortunately no blades in the current future......just blew my cash on an AAC 762SDN6.....which is a hell of a lot more than a knife.

I second the Protech CQ-7 . Benchmade also made an auto version , which are now collectible . The blade is about 1/4" longer .
