WTB: knife with partially serrated blade

I am looking for a 'combo blade' knife. I want something along the lines of the spyderco delica4:

 

I know exduct (navy) has something similar but they are all sold out. Does anyone know if another place has them in stock? I am looking for something similar to this and quality but on a budget of under $50 shipped to me.

 

I want it on the smaller side and pocketable as well

 

Thanks BLF!

If I remember correctly from my days on EDCFthere are some problems with customs in Canada so you may want to request them to tighten the pivot screw. (The way they check is if it is a gravity knife is to try to flick it open) Can't offer more than that. Good luck though, knives are always fun. Smile

The main problem with most Chinese knives is weight. Most are heavy. Spyderco does light weight better than any other company. If weight is not your primary concern, the SRM 707 is a solid knife for ~$7. I have one in combo egde and it is really good. I also have a SRM T01 and the quality is simply outstanding. It is a deep hollow ground combo edge that is a better slicer than my combo edge Delica 4.

The other problem with Chinese knives is that (in my experience) they do not do serrated blades very well. You can get a pretty inexpensive Gerber or Kershaw with a nice serrated blade for less than $25, you might want to give that a try.

I have a Gerber Paraframe, it is very light, and has a nice blade. I think they run about $16 online, full list is $25

Rats, finally sold my 2010 509hp Mustang...now I can buy more lights!

Sold the red one too! Now guess what I drive, doing my penance for 500 hp commuters...

Look at the gerber BG scout knife, it is a nice light half serrated knife.

i think you already have chosen the best knife IMO pay the $60. its a great knife

if you get a vg-10 steel you will appreciate the edge retention and ease of sharpening.

alt option $40  Spyderco Dragonfly2 - it doesnt come in a combo edge , small

Here is a killer option Spyderco Native  $52 !!  >>>  CPM-S30V steel !

Spyderco Delica4 plain edge, $50+couple bucks . i know you want a combo blade i would suggest a plain one.

Why? easier to sharpen , and good steel kept sharp will negate some of the serrated edge benefits.

Sierra trading Post

They have some good knives with good prices. If you sign up on the site they give lots of coupon codes to offset the shipping and sometimes they give 2.95 shipping.

Lol. OK. So amazon.com will not ship to canada, and amazon.ca has those same knives for double the price or more (all over $100). Would someone order me the Native, (free shipping I think?), and then ship it to me? Lol. I'll paypal the money before hand to purchase the knife, and then paypal money for the shipping. Anyone? lol. 

 

Damn ripoff being in Canada!

If no one else volunteers I may be able to do it but I can't order it for about a week. (Not at home)Also whoever does this you may want to tighten the pivot screw to make sure they get it. Good Luck. Smile
