Looking for a good folding single blade pocket knife. Must be light weight and durable, $150 or less.
Not sure if I want a full straight edge or part serrated/part straight.
Primary use will be for anything needed during hiking, camping, or fishing.
I don't have a lot of experience with simple folding knives, so take my advice with a grain of salt.
I've always loved Leatherman
multi-tools, and a few years ago I bought one that came with a 'free' C33Lx
. At the time I didn't really even know Leatherman made knives
. It's a nice-sized folding knife that I've found quite useful when I just needed a simple knife. It's light, and has both a belt clip and carabiner attachment. Same high build quality that I'm used to in the multi-tools, just in an easily-totable folding-knife.
Might be something to check out, as I think you can find them at just about any camping/hiking/outdoorsy kind of store, as well as online. They're well within your budget, and guaranteed for 25 years.
