Spyderco C28SBK Dragonfly UltralightA good choice for the ultra light backpacker (full weight of this knife is only 1.2 ounces) this also is a solid favorite as a pocket knife choice for everyday urban users. The 2 5/16 inch stainless steel blade and serrated edge serves well for the usual tasks (opening mail, opening boxes, wishing you were somewhere else doing something you liked, etc.) as well as the occasional real and satisfying cutting chore.

In the woods, if you find frequent reasons to cut rope or fabric the serrated edge is a plus. If you like to whittle, find a plain edge style (Spyderco sells many different models in this same range). If you intend to sharpen it yourself rather than send it back to Spyderco for that, the plain edge models are mandatory.

This lockback knife includes a pocket clip, so it won't get lost in the depths of your pants, but again this is more an urban solution than a wilderness concept; going through heavy brush, it wouldn't take long for this knife to get flipped out and far away, if you rely on just that pocket clip to hold it.

The synthetic nonslip handle will be a blister maker if you do much work with it, but that's no reason to shy away from this knife if you aren't the sort to use it obsessively. Most of us just need a knife now and then. This one is backed by an excellent warranty, and you can even open it with one hand.
