Not to be an ass, but you need a $200 self defense knife bud? I mean for a few bucks more you can get another decent self defense PISTOL

Treat a knife just like a firearm in that any knife that fits well in your hand and you are comfortable using is a good one. Don't just go looking for the tactical/defensive/end all knife and get something that YOU like. I carry a Kershaw everyday.

Quick into action and strong blade.Slice and dice or remove limbs it is in want. I like my USMC K bar,I carry a kershaw assisted opener.It will break on really rough treatment. All in what you plan to use it for. Don't bring a knife to a gun fight.Bamn box openers killed 3000 at WTS.

SpyderCo Tim Wegner partially serrated linerlock folder-nice heft to it and flips open easily. Bought 3 on Ebay for $55-67 each when they were disco'd. Now they're fetching top dollar again.

I looked at the Spyderco knifes on Ebay....so many models to choose from.
Not sure which ones are better than others.

I am a big fan of Emerson Knives. He has quite the selection. Local place up here has most of them within your budget...

This is the newer version of mine... http://newgraham.com/store/product/7...7BW-BT-w-Wave/

Great knife, made very well. Have had mine for around 10 years.
