I just would like a bigger knife. Ive had the multi tool knife, too annoying to get the blade out when i wanted it. And I've had a smaller knife before and it never stayed sharp. It was a cheapie.

The main purpose of the knife would to 1) cut open the boxes at work (kitchen and bar use). 2) whittling

but i would like a larger more "agressive" type of knife

you won't catch me without a gerber paraframe in my pocket. great little pocket knife. lightweight and thin, i can hardly notice i'm wearing it. Plus they're pretty damn cheap, so if you do loose one its not the end of the world. Iffin i was you id buy one of theese myself and ask for something else for a gift.

my everyday knife. 22 bucks and its one hell of a buy. I used mine for everything and anything. I sharpen it maybe once a year and it stays that way no matter what I cut.

Gerbers stay sharp, light weight. Thirty bucks and works well. Look at a sod buster forget the name brand no locking handle, but are a good knife. They have a little more weight to them and are solid.

If you're planning on using it for these purposes, buy a cheap gerber, or something similar. I wouldn't spend more than $40 on a knife for those purposes.

My recommendation :



In all seriousness, Gerber makes nice affordable knives that sounds perfect for the kind of use you're looking at.

SOG Trident

If you look around, you can find it within your price range. It's a little bit bigger and more "aggressive", good quality, and it opens quick. I picked mine up for 60 bucks.

Now, if price wasn't a factor, the Emerson CQC-7 is probably one of the best quality knives out there.
