Benchmade Altitude Fixed Blade Knife
So I have 170$ to spend but don’t know what to get, any suggestions?( not brands but actual knives, I’m between spiderco and benchmade)
Benchmade 15200 Altitude. You might have to shop around to find one at your price, but they can be found. Amazing little fixed blade that is great at holding an edge

Kershaw
Dangerous. Check carefullly before you have injury. Defective build quality.

Benchmade Altitude Fixed Blade Knife
Sharp and light!
Handles well, this knife is awesome especially for my sheep and mule deer prairie hunts where I carry a lot of gear. I didn't know if i'd like the orange but it's great, you never have to look for it. Great purchase

The hump on the back strap of th...

Price/value Ratio

Benchmade Altitude Fixed Blade Knife
Benchmade Does It Again.
This is a spendy knife but it is well worth the price. I purchased the firstlite edition knife because it is $30 cheaper on Amazon than anywhere else at the moment.

Kershaw
A good knock for the price
Initial impressions: the knife has a very beautiful color and overall I really like how this knife looks. The knife is a bit smaller than I anticipated and feels a tiny bit awkward in my hands but this is not a negative. I have really really big hands. The action can best be described as stiff and h...
