A very general post. The first knife I ever got was a simple, small black pocket knife (2.5" blade), I got it from Wal-Mart for only $1 (at the time I was psyched that the price was so low, but worried at the same time, there are a lot of crazies after all). It wasn't the best quality knife by far, but for simple low impact tasks it worked perfectly. Fast forward a few years later and I'm now in the market for a new knife; something small, durable, multi use, and preferably black, due to financial reasons I will not spend more than $45 on a new knife and would prefer something around $20-30. Any suggestions? And thanks a bunch.
Spyderco delica 4 will last you a llifetime
Kershaw I don't like, they feel cheap...
If you want even cheaper, a gerber evo (mini or regular) is a great knife, superstrong and holds an edge
And yes, i use my knives, my edc is my spyderco peramilitary in D2 or my delica in ZDP189.

I don't think you ever spent one day in the woods.
Too busy writing survival scenarios.
in a real shtf scenario you'll use whatever knife you can find. A butter knife or a dollar store kitchen chef knife, or whatever you can find. I bought a decent survival knife off ebay for 10 bucks. I could gut a deer I'm sure with it.
