Today while mowing I lost my knife. I always have a knife on me and I am going to have to get another before I go crazy.

Im looking for a knife, not a multi-tool.
About a 3 inch blade, partly-serrated or not.
Thinner is better.
pocket knife, not a pouch knife.
folding, with lock.

If anybody knows of a good everyday knife they would recommend I will take it into consideration. Thanks for any input!

These are the knives I use the most. The little Winchester stainless steel one is the one I lost and was my everyday knife. The middle blue one is a cheap one that stays in my room and I really only use it to open things. The wooden Winchester is a pouch knife that I carry when I go in the woods or fishing or any other place my little one might not be enough.

I can't remember the name of the knife I have, benchmade or something maybe but I really like it because it is all metal, aluminum body with stainless blade and with the way the thumb opener is it can be opened with one hand almost as fast as what a switchblade could be.

Bummer about loosing the knife, maybe you will get luck and happen to to see it in the grass somewhere.

My every day carry is a cheap Chinese special from Napa. This is the 3rd one of these knives I've had. I lost the first one, I think a paramedic 'borrowed' the 2nd one when I wrecked, and my wife bought my current one at Christmas time. It's a good little knife, it takes & holds an edge well. The only thing it needed was a spot of loctite on the screws that hold the clip.

George, Ill check out benchmade and see what I can find. Last weekend I was mowing my neighbors yard and I lost it. I was only mowing 5 minutes before I noticed it was gone. It still took 4 of us 20 minutes to find it. I figure that lightning doesn't strike twice and with much, much more area for it to be, I dont think I will find it.

AcreFarm, thats a good looking knife and something like that is what I had in mind. I forgot about places like napa and autozone that sometimes have knives!

Ryan, my first impulse was to tell you any Spyderco knife. Then I thought that perhaps you may not want to spend that much. I would recommend this Byrd knife.

I thinks that these are made for Spyderco in China.

I gave one to my stepson. He broke the tip, using it for a screwdriver. It is still a pretty good knife for the price.

I carry a Spyderco sometimes. They are great knives.

Ever think of the Case brand??

I need to find one to carry still. Last year I bought one at yard sale and cleaned it up and sharpened it to use figuring it to be from the 1970's

Carried it three days before I found out it was from 1914-1920... it now sits on a shelf LOL. I will get a pic in a few and post with my iphone.

The "middle" blade is a file.

I was right on my thinking the one I have is a Benchmade but it wasn't one of the high dollar ones either. I think I bought it at Gander Mountain a couple of years ago.

I was just browsing on Benchmade's site and seen this one, a little pricey but man it is sweet looking: http://www.benchmade...products/111H2O

Ryan, my choice has always been a Old Timer or a Case . They have alot of choices of single, double or triple blades. Losing a knife- Hate that when it happens.

For a pocket knife I have always carried one of the Swiss army knives. You can get them with any number of implements depending on how big you want the knife to be and how much you spend.

key the word knife in search on ebay...LOTS of choices there. Buck is making some nice affordable lock backs. buy you are hard-pressed to find USA made knives anymore, except for Case. An older Buck would be a good choice. Old ones are USA made. Case is a good choice too. Good luck.

I looked on Google and eBay for awhile. I searched for Case, Benchmade, Winchester, Swiss Army, Old Timer, and Gerber as well as some general searches. I found the one below and other then not having a lock its exactly what I want. For less then five bucks I dont think it could get much better. Even if I dont like it, its cheap enough that I can just carry it until I find one thats better and replace it. My mom has to go to Walmart later to get rabbit food so I will tag along and see if they have anything.

Not that it matters much anymore, I just found a knife identical to the one I lost.
