If you are looking for a great everyday carry option, the Skyline is one model that you should quickly put near the top of your list. This is a knife that was made with convenience and comfort in mind. It has a slim body design, a 3 1/8 blade made from 14C28N stainless steel, and a sturdy locking liner.
Easy to Open
While this is not an assisted-opening knife, it is a blade that is relatively easy to deploy with a single hand. You shouldn’t have to worry about fighting with this knife to get the blade out –nor should you have to worry about it slipping in your hand, thanks to the textured G-10 handle. As an added touch, there is a pocket clip which can be reversed, meaning you can carry the knife in your pocket in either the tip up or tip down position, depending on your preference.
