This is similar in that it’s black, Spyderco, liner lock, S30V steel, etc. $91.32 shipped via Amazon.
Hmmm.. Maybe the Zebra F701? It’s an all stainless steel construction with some nice knurling. It seems to be popular enough in the EDC crowd so it must have something going for it (highly moddable too). Maxing out at maybe $6-15 it couldn’t hurt to try it.
if you mean what I would recommend personally to anyone (non flashaholic), not considering their needs, tastes, budget, etc…I’d say Zebralight SC50w+ for click, 4sevens Mini AA for twist.
Now hit up candlepowerforums and start reading. B)
Firstly, it’s kind of disconcerting to see Hype and Fashion used interchangeably. Secondly, how does that impact what knife purchase you are going to make? I assume if you buy a knife, you want to buy it for ‘EDC credibility,’ which I would probably call ‘utility’ and not as a fashion statement. Are you asking for a stylish, sheeple-friendly, non-tactical looking knife? If so, look into “gentleman’s folders.” Opinel seems to be a popular knife amongst the HYPE WORLD and if you’re just cutting boxes open it should serve you well. I personally like Al Mar but those can be a bit pricey…
Hopefully that’s a good start. Just do some research on your own and I’m sure you’ll find something you like.
EDIT: Re: eBay. Just don’t buy fakes. You can probably feel more comfortable buying from popular knife dealers or from respected members on knife forums, too.
