    Hello all ive been lurking on TFF for a few months. I recieved a letter from my cousin who is serving with 1/7 marines in iraq right now, and he asked me if I could find him a 6-8 inch blade folding knife. Im not sure if he wants a straight or serated blade. His budget is around 150. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    While I can't vouch for this seller, the knife is AWESOME!!! It's a Kershaw Tactical Blur. The handle has a sandpaper-esque finish to it for enhanced grip. It's assisted opening and has a half-serrated/half-straight tanto blade. I've had one for a few about 7 months and love it.

    my suggestion would be an assisted opening gerber, maybe like a fairbairn, or a benchmade...

    from what i hear SOG knives are pretty good too..

    hope ive helped with the choices...

    These are GREAT knives. I have carried one every day for 2-3 years. The open like a flash, hold an edge and, considering his budget, he could get 4 or five of them for his budget.

    Camillus Heat...eBay about $30.00 +-. The little nub you see on the closed knife is the opener. VERY fast.
