    I don't want something that is Navy SEAL approved for hand to hand slaughterfiesta or is the latest and greatest internet mall ninja "tacticool" blade that can cut through UN buildings.

    I'm looking for something with a very good serrated edge, polymer frame, with about a 3.5" blade or so on it. Something you could cut through a seat belt, cut a rope, etc. with. One of those handy tools to have around kinda knifes.

    Any suggestions?

    I've got a Benchmade Switchback that I think would work real well for what you're wanting. It was named Knife of the Year a while back in American Handgunner magazine.

    Besides the main blade, there's a small blade on the back that I use for general pupose (cutting open boxes, etc.) so I don't dull my "social" blade.

    Here it is, at Impact Guns' website.

    My daily carry is the CRKT M16-13. It's light, cheap, and holds a great edge. I'm not a big fan of serrated knives but this one is offered in both plain and serrated. Some bash them because they're from Taiwan but they are as good or better than a lot of domestics for the price. I picked up mine for around 25 bucks.

    I like that one. They have a full hilted version that I found on EBay for about $45.

    I have a CRKT and a SOG. Both fit well into your criteria. Inexpensive enough that you don't have to fall on the sword if you lose them too.

    Look around in here. http://www.agrussell.com/ I don't remember if the K-Bar folders have a serrated edge or not but the price is right. S&W and Spyderco make knives in that price range too.

    Might have a look around this site. I never bought from them but they have a good selection and their site works well.

    Anybody ever buy from them?

    I carry a benchmade auto knife but if price is an issue you can get a good gerber at wal mart.

    There are LOTS of mentions of Benchmade in here. I've casually looked at them but what makes them worth the money?

    I don't mind forking over good money for quality... I just don't know much about them. Input is appreciated.
