I want to buy a manual flip knife for everyday-carry. The blade should not exceed 4 inches (shorter would be better) and the knife should be thin while still being a steel or aluminium body. Weight is no concern and I don't want to spend more than 200 $/€ on it.
I want it to be entirely US-made, since we don't really have competent flip knife manufacturers in Europe. None who ask reasonable prices anyway.
A colleague recommended Kershaw to me. They offer a wide array of knives that fit my requirements, but maybe you guys know more.
Also, the law regarding knives is very liberal here in Austria. There are practically no boundaries. I'm not sure if I can just order one from the USA and have it shipped, though. Does anyone have experience in this matter?
Pic related is the kind and shape I'm looking for (Kershaw Dividend).
