    I Want a New OTF Assisted Knife. What Sayeth Ye All?

    I have two of the Schrade knives pictured below. It was admittedly inexpensive (around $40), so I suppose I am not surprised that they have crapped out. I got it for a Father's Day Gift from the only people I love, and they are by no means experts on knives. They just knew that I wanted to be able to go in my pocket with one hand, and deploy the blade for use in the plant.

    I will not bash Schrade either, because when the first one crapped out; they instantly gave me another one to replace free of charge.

    So here is what is happening to these two so those of you that actually have these types can advise me on ones that are not as likely to have these problems.

    After a while, the deployment button starts getting stuck. Took it apart and fixed it once or twice. Then the lock release starts being ineffective and the blade will not lock in the open position. That is way too dangerous to keep using them. Happened on both.

    I don't mind spending money on good quality equipment, but it is a utility knife. I don't need to tag along with SEAL Team 6. What brands should I be looking at?

    For a utility OTF I'd say go with the Lightning OTF if you can find one. Definitely the best bang the buck. I have a couple of high end OTF's but for utility I have used the Lightning for a couple of years and still going strong. Never had any problems with it.

    This.
    Not the best otf in the world but penny for penny I consider it the best value for money.
    Mine has been faultless for many years and it’s easy to sharpen.

    I looked for a second for my one for my tackle box a while back and couldn't find one. I see they are available now. May have to pick up another one.

    Which model do you have? I kind of like a double edge blade.

    No idea which model I have.
    Looked on bladehq.com and they no longer list it.
    It is a single edge version, though.
    Never failed me and it’s cheap.

    I also have a benchmade infidel but I never use it.
    Kind of silly to have an expensive knife and prefer to use the cheap one...
