If you’re looking for a reliable knife at an affordable price, you should absolutely check out the Kershaw Thistle. It’s a manual folder with thumb studs and a great grip you can pick up for $13.

The Thistle features a 3.25” stonewash finished 8Cr13MoV drop point with a blade thickness of 0.11”. It smoothly and easily flicks open with easily accessed ambidextrous thumb studs.

This linerlock has a push button release. When you push the big button in the center of the K-Texture GFN handles, it disengages the linerlock. That makes for a super easy open. It also has an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip. It weighs about 4 ounces and is 4.4” closed.
