Thread: Best sub 100 knife

    Best sub 100 knife

    Hi all.

    Wife has been asking what id like for xmas. Fancy a nice knife. I currently use a mora. Did quite fancy an eka swingblade but recently heard they dont hold their edge very well? Looking to spend up to 100 although cica 60 would be preferable.

    Thanks in advance

    Fixed or Folding? I like my Spyderco Paramilitary II as an EDC.

    Get your wife to order you one from Bogdan the 'Badger' handmade in O1 tool steel with a Skandi grind.
    Will be razor sharp and you will easily maintain the edge with a Strop but also invest in a combination Japanese stone.
    You wont be disappointed! You will need to order now to get in time though.

    Hi KS

    In my experience both the OutDoor Edge & EKA Swingblades hold a good edge, the OE version is Japanese Steel & the EKA is Swedish Sandvik steel - so both certainly good quality & will hold a good edge with a good quality sharpening system.

    For under a 100 the Casstrom No 10 Forester Knife (fixed blade) takes some beating - custom feel & high quality leather sheath.

    Just had a Casstrom 10 bought for my birthday and pleased with it so far. Nice green micarta scales and shaving sharp.

    These are about 80 and worth a look.

    What species do you plan to use it on?

    Any particular preferences - fixed/folding, wood/synthetic scales, grind, blade profile??

    Plenty of nice Helle and Enzo knives at that price, although the Spyderco Bill Moran might be another (https://www.heinnie.com/spyderco-bil...n#product-tabs).

    Alternatively spend the money on a good full tang blade and make up the knife yourself - it's a satisfying project that anyone with a few basic skills can enjoy.

    +1 for the EKA - I've had mine a few years now and it's still holding a good edge.

    For that money, EKA Swede 10 and a Lansky system to keep it sharp.

    Well well well !
    I have just had a long 'inter action' on facebook about knives and I have been assured by those that know better than me ! that any knife sub 100 is not worth buying as it will not hold it's edge, the point will snap and another replacement will be needed before long.
    I know better but have given up trying to convince them and am glad to hear that I am not the only one of the opinion that price is not always a sign of quality.
    I have several varying in price from 'Cheap-ish' to 'quite expensive' and all do the job but I do like the look of the Badger so I may end up adding to my collection !!
