Carried a Buck 110 until it got stolen. Got, and carried another until I used up the blade. Had a Boker Kalashnikov until I gave it to a friend that just fell in love with it. I've been carrying a Kershaw Link (link below) for the last few years without issue. Pretty good, general use, type knife. I use the serrations more often than the flat, so the flat holds an edge for me pretty well. I think I picked it up for about $25-30.00.

I was disappointed with a Boker Kalashnikov. Did not hold an edge well at all. Maybe I just got one that was not heat treated properly.

Didn't carry that Boker for long, maybe a bit over a year. Never had much trouble with the edge on mine. Once again though, it was a serrated version, and that edge got used the most often.

I’m left handed and needed a knife that (1) had a reversible clip so I could carry it left handed, and (2) I could open one-handed.

Benchmade axis lock knives fit that bill perfectly. Fortunately, I bought all of mine used, and I bought them before Benchmade crapped the bed with that gun destruction business.

I know you said you wanted one with a clip, but I have been carrying a Swiss Army knife. It is the tinkerer I believe. Blade holds a edge pretty well. It isn’t tactical, but it is functional. I have carried one of these for 20 years. Around $30 or under.
This one has some good reviews

I like the Boker Kalashnikov auto knives. I have 3 of them in my knife/holster drawer. :) They are pretty decent knives for $35 or $40. But my EDC is a Ken Onion Blur.
