As an internet knife bro, that as a serious lack of dumb lyst videos let’s do a dumb lyst best knives under 50 just in time for the war on Christmas. a month or three ago my very specialized and socially awkward skill about knowing more about knives and other bipeds, in my extended social circles came into play when my wife said, Hey, this woman at work wants a field knife under 50. Do you have any recommendations? Okay, so do so I gave her several knives to bring to work. My wife was the buffer between me and her normal human co workers. Are you guys like NARS smart move. Some of the knife brands were spider Ko’s, CV bees, the rat to some other bullshit and she came back home and said all of her co workers Muse the knives were too big and too tall from the side. So tactically reassessing, I sent a Kershaw Showtime trying to not think like a knife person and the co worker chose it does not compute the selection of knives I sent all had locking blades pocket clips, and we’re under 50 bucks so starting with the I like the you like it the Kershaw Showtime is a knife for people who don’t overthink steel aren’t over compensating. Don’t eat purple. This brand names are endorsements from wrestlers, although those are very important. I think the co worker also like the weight of the steel handle and the assistant opening. I assume it’s really hard for me to wrap my head around the whole thing, but for non knife people are people not employed at tops. A field knife is meant for cutting tie line apples zip ties, maybe tape, though not snitches or for self offense, just regular old people who’ve never heard the word bushcraft or think Lynn Thompson is someone’s real nice and steals Okay, so you’ll have to sharpen it more but it’s apparently attractive to non knife people. It’s a compact without being too small about 30 bucks really trying here so it makes a list because reasons okay. links to the videos and places to buy are below this video in the description. Next the knife I’d pick if I hadn’t blown money on expensive ones the spider code tenacious one’s a good size for people who don’t complain about the blade having too tall a profile apparently like some people do. Yeah, but there’s a large hole in the blade there are a few good things about it like easy one handed opening and closing it’s not too heavy as a decent size cutting edge and blade and you can swap the pocket clip to several positions like four of them out about 30 to $40 there are a few downsides like the steel is okay, not bad similar to the show times it’s stainless but you’ll have to sharpen it more than let’s say a paramilitary to one of their you know more moderately priced knives. If you’re not a regular watcher of the channel here things I like from a good everyday carry one under four ounces a cutting edge over three inches. easy quick opening and closing with one hand and a handle area of about three and a half inches or more. The grip areas aren’t the length of the whole handle but the area you can comfortably rest your hand off this fits about all of my qualifications for a good pocket knife however I like spider coast compression lock more and the liner lock found on this knife so that’s amazing reason this is not my everyday carry Okay, spider goes too big. Maybe 40 bucks is too expensive because it cuts into your weed budget How about the cheapest knife with a pocket clip? I’d recommend the K bar dozer you can regularly find this knife on Amazon for I don’t know 18 bucks it’s a cutting tool and not a fashion accessory unless K bar does run and purple locks has an OK steel called us eight and has a hardware and plastic handle called side tell the dozer is a popular cheap knife review I did it on had a lot of people chiming in who owned it who liked it your channel regular you’ll know I own many more expensive knives translated to pragmatists and not people who watch this channel regularly. Were knives aren’t a lifestyle I don’t carry any of the knives with regularity seeing the video I prefer designs features and carry options found a more expensive knives like any internet knife show but with bad spending habits and that vein but larger in the handle and blade department and just over 20 bucks is the bird cara cara to it here’s the second cheapest one and a large alternative to the dozer and kind of uglier, well they’re both ugly. Also a locking knife with a lock back mechanism similar to the dozer swappable pocket clip made in China. A good alternative to the more expensive spider calendar for with the touch of practice you can close this one handed with the flick of the wrist and a twist of your head.
It’s easier to close one handed over the dozer and as
a note, since this is an overview video the links to videos I mentioned earlier in the description are full reviews to these knives so wonderful use of your internet time. What did you do today? I spent
all day watching product reviews on the Internet.
Maybe you want something cheap but American not named Budweiser. How about the buck 110 select comes in a few handle colors. Nearly one of the cheapest folding knives you can get made in USA for about 30 bucks. I think the 112 would technically be cheaper. It’s the only knife in the video made in the USA. It isn’t as small as a dozer and more in line with the previous cara cara to the pocket clip is kind of ugly, but it’s deep carry so it doesn’t stick out of your pocket much the handles made from a plastic called FRN and the blade is over three inches. If I didn’t need a pocket clip, I would consider maybe a case sod Buster as an alternative to this. Those are made in the USA Today. There’s also the buck 112. Like I said, similar styling to the 110 but I don’t own it. The book is not easy to close one handed like the bird because of the location of the lock release mechanism. Alright, one more folding that designed for those who need smaller lighter weight knives the fraction the Kershaw fraction as a two and three quarter inch blade or two ounces and costs about 30 bucks depending on what color you need. Recommended for citizens and taxpayers who live in areas with terrible knife laws like Europe or New York. A large kitchen knife is a Okay, remember, but a small folding pocket knife is suddenly a weapon. Does anyone ever see the vice mini documentary where the chef got
arrested for carrying a pocket knife,
but not his larger kitchen knives? Go figure sounds like satire, but it isn’t. This is a knife I recommend to a co worker who still carries it. Of course unless he doesn’t. How about some honorable mentions all these knives proceeding that certain characteristics. And here are a few others to consider. If those aren’t your thing and so people won’t get mad at me that I left them out of the main recommendation share four main things under 50 locking stainless steel blade with pocket clips. So these particular knives will also be under 50 but may not have some of the other essentials I think are important. Like pocket clips or stainless steel blades. Well, stainless steel for most people, the CVV practice a bit better looking than the spider code tenacious, also kind of big. In the main recommendation list above I was going for variety and sizes and price. I didn’t include this one because it’s basically in the same category as a tenacious with regards to cost weight Blade Size. And with the stainless steel blade. I’d say if this knife is better looking to you than that tenacious, go with it, it’s made by a premium knife maker in China called a knife. The tenacious is a little easier to buy
because more retailers carry it.
Also another honorable mention the honey badger comes in three sizes maybe two colors right now. It’s an easy one handed open and closed lightweight. Get the small if you need a compact knife and the size of the Ontario RAT to like seeing here or you know, get a large if you like the tenacious size. Sorry I didn’t include the rat to here but it’s a good knife you just see it a lot. So I decided to go with some alternatives. The honey badger will be harder to find in stores but they’re under 30 bucks. If you have amazon prime guns those guns get a lot of hate because they basically rip off designs from other bigger knife companies. They aren’t producing fakes, but since say this Gonzo sort of borrows design cues from the 941 people get pissed. The fact that they feel nothing alike in your hand and have many proportional and construction differences. Doesn’t matter. It may as well be exact copy to some people. If you’re a knife IP law, White Knight, you’re giving this video a thumbs down right now anyway, why are there going to be upset in 20 years when the world runs out of ways to make knife designs look different from one another. Some astute people may point out, we’re kind of already there. But the reason I bring guns up is because they make well built knives mostly under 20 bucks. It’s not going to get you points from knife snobs but maybe you want something that cuts and not spend a lot of money. The larger Gonzo g 753 is a good choice. If you want a small lightweight
knife the f
753 m which looks similar is good for a smaller knife. If you want cheap and unusual. The Mercator k 55 k is about 30 bucks and would look great and Instagram pocket dumps there’s a pocket clip version available for a little more. That version is only available at one store in the US at a reasonable price called hairy Jay Epstein. It comes in a carbon steel variety so the blade needs some extra care to avoid rust. And last but not least the Duke Duke no pocket clip, not locking but with an extremely stiff slip joint back spring. For the hardcore who don’t mind the blade discoloration and extra care that comes with the carbon steel blade. Don’t mind the extra strength that comes with closing it either. I did a video about the Best Traditional knives and the Duke Duke and Mercator are in that one so check it out if you like the looks or need some alternative suggestions. And for the two or three people who will invariably post about the lack of Victorian boxes. I want to say Victorinox Sentinel is a good choice. And one of the only single bladed Victorian boxes that lock with the clip and it’s under 30 bucks. However, I don’t own that one. You can go and buy it and make a video about it.

Follow me on Instagram note that these are my opinions and are limited to the scope of knives I have reviewed and owned out every good budget knife will show up in this video but thanks for watching.
