Fixed or folder. Tax money will be here in Feb, and I want to enjoy a little of the return before the rest is ripped off me. Recommend the best with consideration for steel quality, ease of sharpening, no liner locks if folding, and something that I don't already have! For fixed, I've always drooled over a Esee 4, folding I'm stumped. I was hoping a Manix in Carpenter steel, but they appear out of my range.
