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.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.
This was the one I bought. Didn't like the Kalashnikov version. 440 steel is not the best steel but it is ok and I keep a Spyderco sharpner out just in case something needs a touch up.I was disappointed with a Boker Kalashnikov.

This one has some good reviewsI 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.
