Looking for a good folder with specific criteria
I'm looking for a folder for EDC but I have a few "must haves" and I'm having some serious difficulty finding one locally. I'd like a fairly heavy duty everyday use kind of knife.
The criteria, in no particular order:
Blade length: 4 and 1/2 inces
Blade type: Spear point, drop point or tanto
Edge: Semi serrated
Opening mechanism: Assisted or flipper
Lock: Liner (though I've seen some other locks which are easily closed one-handed, willing to take recs here)
Body: Metal, not Zytel or other plastic
A big thing for me is that knife is flat, I don't care about wide from front to back but a flat body is a must. I carry in my back pocket with my wallet so a flat knife is better for me to sit on.
Price isn't too big of a deal to me. I'd like to stay under a hunny and if the equipment is good I don't mind inexpensive.
So, expert GTers, what say you.
For comparison, I've carried a Leek for about 10 years and really like it for weight, flatness and quality, the blade length is a bit short though. I really liked the CRKT M16 but, again the blade is too short for my tastes.
I can't carry automatics in Texas, I don't plan to go to San Antonio so lock blades are no problem (in fact, it's a must).
If I left anything out, feel free to admonish my oversight. :D
