Like the title says I'm looking to get a few knives: an EDC, one for my dorm room, one for the workbench, and a keychain one. My experience with knives is fairly limited only having owned a Schrade 'Old Timer' Pocket Knife
. It was okay but a little big to carry around and didn't hold an edge very well.
I don't really know what I like for things like assisted opening or locks or what not and I plan on going to a store to handle them but I'd like to go in there with a little knowledge of what I might be looking for. My budget isn't huge and I don't want to spend more than 40 on each one, and preferably under for each of them. I'm really looking for "bang-for-your-buck" products.
Basically here's what I'm looking for in each product:
For an EDC I want something light, not too big, and not too aggressive looking. I was originally looking at the Kershaw Onion Leek but the blade is 3in and the limit for MA is 2.5, I will probably get one of these though when I go to college as TN has a 4 in limit.
For the dorm I want something that is a little bigger and more heavy duty. I want it to be something I could use on food too.
For the workbench I need something tough and sharp that I can beat up. I definitely want something partially serrated for this.
For the keychain I want something tiny that I can have in situations when bringing an EDC isn't okay. I always have my keys with me and this would be almost a novelty but still useful for little things. I was thinking this
Any help you more experienced guys *cough* cat and faden *cough*
can give me would be greatly appreciated.
I wish I had more time to devote to airsoft...
