    My favorite knife that I carry daily is a Spyderco Manix 2 LW.
    It is blue, plastic, and wide... so in rare occasions where I am wearing a suit, it looks very off.
    I do have a CRKT Crossbones, but I never carried it because it looks ugly.

    I'm looking for something that is:
    - under $50 and must be new
    - Looks good with a suit
    - Steel can be any budget stainless steel like AUS8 or 8CR
    - smooth scales (opposite of what I look for usually)
    - wood or some scale that isn't too flashy or tacticool
    - light weight (3.5oz and under)
    - MUST BE LOCKING
    - NO ASSISTED
    - Can not be Buck knives (the clips look too ugly)
    - Slim profile

    If u guys have any knives in mind that u know of, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    I think you can consider the civivi Elementum or some models from ruine, I have a 801 that is very impressive in term of action

    2nd the CRKT CEO. My go to suit & tie knife is an urban trapper, and the ceo is very similar in design. Carries as light and clean as having a pen in your pocket.


    CJRB RIA or Ruike P865 would also make the list for me, if you wanted something just a bit more sturdy & robust feeling in hand.
