Some flexibility in the price.

What would be similar in style to a Leek but a definite upgrade in materials and finishing? It can be a little bigger but probably under a 4” or so blade.

.25” longer blade than the Leek, but take a look at the ZT0450 listed at $188 from “Kershaw Guy”.

Maybe a ZT Discontinued knife will strike your fancy? The two versions of the 0460 are deeply discounted.

Spyderco Para 3 or Chapparel if you want to go smaller.

I’ve really tried to stay away from Chinese stuff but I did pick up a couple civivi’s and a WE Banter to see what all the fuss was about and while they are all decent knives the WE Banter is a really nice little package.

Look at GiantMouse's ACE line. These are very nice. Consider a Biblio in that size range, or the Iona.

188 bucks USA Made Blades, go to the Zero Tolerance anodized/customized section, ZT 0450. Nice flipper, cool anodize finish on the titanium.

I just got a Monterey Bay Knives Old Guard and I am loving it. They have a Mini Old Guard that has a 3” blade and runs $200.

If you can go Auto, look at the Launch line from Kershaw. I love the Leek and have grown to like the Launch 1, a bit more bulk but they have a large selection now.
