    If it’s mainly for a defensive situation, look at the spyderco Matriarch. The blade is a little longer than you want, but it looks like a nice little slasher if you need it for defense.

    I carry a $20 kershaw compound and never had an issue. There are nicer knives out there, but if i lose this its not a great loss. Many friends like zero tolerance and benchmade, but i would flip if i lost a knife that costs what some of them do.

    Value-priced knives have a place in life... a big place.

    Been carrying a $18 Victorinox Recruit for the past month. I've grown to appreciate the utility of having the few extra tools on board. Granted, the main knife blade isn't nearly as stout as many blades out there, but as long as you don't push it past the point of thinking "I probably shouldn't use it this way" - you'll be fine.

    I'm sure I'll come across a situation where I would rather have my full size Griptilian...

    I love my Spyderco Centofante 3. Certainly not a heavy duty work knife but it's done everything I need it to over the last few years. As far as for defensive purposes I'm sure there are better. This thing carries cuts anything and while not as important looks interesting and isn't what everyone else is carrying. I have a CRKT CEO on order to possible lighten my workday carry.
