That was my exact carry for several years before I bought my current, a Launch 11 also by Kershaw.

That Cryo is tough to beat in their price range.

I've been super happy with small Kershaws. Super sharp, fit as you described and inexpensive enough you won't lose your mind when you lose your knife.

But an insta-karma CRKT is nice as well.....

They don't have clips, but a Swiss Army knife might be good for you.

Another choice would be either a Spyderco Delica (but would be more like $80). A Spyderco Dragonfly would be a little smaller and close to $50. In fact, if you need a small knife, the Dragonfly is the "biggest" small knife you can get, I think. They perform all out of proportion to their size.

Kershaw Emerson.

THIS

Knives are tools, and I've lost many, many knives over the years so, the days of carrying around a $300 craft folder are over. I do like a good knife but, I'm not making precision cuts or, looking to storm the gates of Jerusalem with a folder. I want it for utility and should the need arise, a get-the-fuck-off-me slice & punch blade so, Emerson wins. Proven knife maker in a value package.
This is what I've been carrying over the last year, Kershaw Emerson CQC-K

I carry 2 daily - a Swiss Army Cadet which has a black aluminum case - one blade, two openers/screw drivers and a nail file - The other is a razor sharp Kershaw by Lee Williams.

Nice complementary pair - one is utility and the other is business.

SOG Slim Jim. https://sogknives.com/slim-jim-black-clam-pack/ If you don't need it to open fast. I would say it is more of a "semi-" assisted opening. A faster opening knife of about the same size is the Kershaw Leek. Either are in the $50 range. I have both.

Solid suggestions. Couldn't go wrong with any of them. In fact, my daily carry knife that I use for all utility tasks is a Swiss Army Day Hiker. No need for a pocket clip as it rides comfortably in the coin pocket of my jeans, and it doesn't draw any attention when using it.

That said, I'll put in my vote for a Spyderco Paramilitary 2. That's basically the "get a Glock 19" answer of the pocket knife world, but that's for a good reason. Yes, it's out of the budget you're talking, but if you buy one and hate it, you'll be able to turn around and sell it or trade it without problem.

Ah, come on, Hobbs. You're being modest. I've seen your threads in The Essential Edge. You must have dozens of dozens!

To the point, though, I have a bunch, too, and I use an Olfa snap-blade retractable more than any of my knives.

I agree on the Dragonfly; I have a couple and they are as you describe. But I carry an even smaller one, the Butterfly, daily, irrespective of anything else I carry. It is surprisingly useful, and truly disappears in your pocket.

I've been carrying a Case pocket knife for years and I hardly know it's there. A clip just adds bulk and gets in the way.
