I finally ran across an affordable knock around fixed blade in the size and price range I was looking for. It was the Daybreak on a pee stop at Dicks. I just happened to see red sale tags and they were marked down from about 32 bucks so I figured I would give it a try. At least it's not another Sharpfinger which seems to be the only non-tacticool knife I run across anymore. Yeah it's Chinese but the Chinese Schrade canoes I got last thanksgiving have served me and my father well so I figured I would give Chinese steel another go based on fair results from that knife. Time will tell if it's a junker or a keeper but so far I'm pretty happy. Feels good, handle heavy. And sized right for a lot of daily tasks my canoe or toothpicks aren't good choices for. Reviews on usage to come, but for a 20 dollar knife with a decent leather sheath I'm more than satisfied. It even passes the paper test with flying colors, but I doubt I could shave with it.
