    My Google-fu is failing.. I turn to the experts..

    I'm looking for:

    1. production knife
    2. semi tactical/law enforcement folding knife
    3. Single Blade (prefer non serration)
    4. Ambi clip (he's a lefty)
    5. 4" blade

    Prefer to keep it under 55.00 or so.. that's the kicker for me, otherwise I'd go with SOG or Benchmade.

    any suggestions from the masses?

    Ka-bar's a good brand in that price range. The MULE and TDI Folder variant might work for him.

    I think the Spyderco Endura is the standard. I think the price is in the ballpark.. not sure.

    Those companies all make multiple knives that fit your parameters. It would be best if you went to a web retailer like knifecenter and sort by price and see what looks good to you.

    I have one of the Smith and Wesson M&P assisted openers that I sometimes alternate with my Benchmade HD Hardtail. It has taken quite a bit of abuse and does well, and takes an edge very well.

    I'm never shy about recommending some style...Kershaw Ken Onion; just under $50 from Amazon

    Yup. The Blur is an awesome knife. The clip is permanent, but blade is ambi, and has their trademark assisted opening.

    I never liked liner lock knives, until I started carrying them. I'll never go back now.

    The Spyderco Tenacious only has a "3.25 blade but otherwise it meets your criteria. Price on Amazon should be around $30 plus s/h.

    Its gotten great reviews too. Love mine.

    There are one or two bigger ones in that lineup. As well as two smaller ones. I think the biggest is the Resilience.

    I almost forgot about Cold Steel. They have several that will meet your criteria for under $100, like the Recon spear point ($70 on Amazon):


    Very good knives, I have four of them. But I carry Kershaws because I like the assited opening and the liner lock.
