I know that the purpose of this list is to sell knives, but I think it is a fairly representative sample of what is available in the sub $50 price point. The Spydie Tenacious is a particularly popular knife that is on my pickup list.
I don’t take issue with what is included, though everyone is going to have a favorite that didn’t make the cut. In my case it is my Boker Plus Kalashnikov Auto. I picked it up for $29 from BladeHQ last year on Cyber Monday.
I actually gave the dagger point Kalashnikov to my Krav Maga instructor, and carry the wharncliffe myself. The Mora Eldris is also under $50, as are most Moras for that matter. I am surprised that at least one was not included.
What blades would you include on your list of best knives under $50?
If I could bump the budget up to $100, I would probably have to add my Kershaw Leek and Benchmade Mini-Griptillian, which is my go-to knife recommendation to friends looking to pick up their first EDC.
