    Depends on what you want. I had a Remington bird knife that was great.

    I have a utility Schrade now that I can almost saw 2X4's with, use it for lots of stuff.

    There's a Case outlet in Joplin, Mo or thereabouts that has some very nice ones to choose from.

    Have had a Schrade for probably 30 years. Are they still around?

    Buck knives used to be pretty damn good. Have they fallen off?

    Sog, Spyderco, Benchmade, Al-mar. Depends on your price range. Don't know who makes them but the Beretta knives are pretty good. Stay away from the Boker ceramic blades. Neat idea, but fragile as hell.

    Victronox---there ain't nuthin' you can't do with a Swiss Army knife.

    I also like Buck knives if I want just a good single blade folding knife.

    Case knives are pretty pricey. Bucks, Schrades, etc. are good. I usually just get the imports from China or Pakistan because I am so bad to lose them that I don't spend much money on them. So far I've been finding that the Chinese imports like Rough Riders are better in quality than the Frost Pakistani knives. My favorite and what I thought to be the best tradeoff in value/quality is Camillus, but I don't know if these American made knives are still around or not.

    Super Tinker Victornix!

    I own almost all brands including the pricy ones but a Swiss Army is the handiest tool I own. Decent SS blades, scissors, screw drivers, even tweezers and a tooth pick!

    I have a knife with a ceramic blade. VERY sharp and difficult to dull. Well worth the money.

    Before you buy, check out Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT). They have the best features and value for the money....I like several other companies products such as Kershaw and Spyderco, but I keep going back to CRKT to find what I use the most.

    The question is who makes or sells the BEST pocket knife.

    There is only one answer . . . Chris Reeves . . . and his Sebenza is the best knife I have ever owned.

    Try one . . . you'll like it.

    I also own Spyderco, Benchmade, Microtech, Buck, Schrade and several other serviceable knives, but IMO the Sebenza tops them all. YMMV . . . ;^)

    Regards,
    Ralph

    My suggestion is to buy 5 different brands, a different one for each day of the week, and then keep your favorite for the weekends! How can you go wrong? :<)

    Up until recently, I would've said Camillus (sic?). But I believe they've just gone bankrupt. But if you can find them - Yellow Jacket etc... US made, excellent quality.
