Looking for a new knife

I lost my old folder a few months ago and am looking for a good, durable everyday carry folder. Assisted opening is nice but not necessary. Has to be american made. Anyone have opinions or what has worked for you in the past?

    I am a big fan of Kershaw knives. The Leek is the perfect everyday carry size. I don't notice it is there most of the time. It stays sharp a long time. I had an issue with the assisted opening not fully opening the knife. I sent it in and they said there was a build up of lint and tape inside. They cleaned and sharpened it and sent it back. Didn't cost a dime. I also like the cyro and cyro II. But they are made in china.

    I like the Kershaw also. I bought a Ken Onion with 420 HC steel blade. Great to sharpen and holds an edge better than any knife I have owned. Assisted opening as well

    Scored a nice Tidioute from the factory guys who set up a folding table in front of the Ace Hardware in Tidioute. AShould have seen their 4th of Julky parade. You could see the whole thing in one block. A Model T, a gal on a horse, a dozen marchers in Union uniforms, and the rodeo clown in his go kart car. Anyways, made at the cutlery factory been there in NW PA for like ever. Nice big knife.

    I love Spiderco, but if you want the American made one you need to buy the more expensive blade, the less expensive blade is made in China.

    Benchmade is a nice blade also......

    When i used to buy knifes for boy scouts i used to buy Gerber but that was in 2008 so i have no idea what is good out there. Gerber is a good pocket knife that is pretty simple but good

    Cold Steel, it is the only place I'd ever buy a knife from. They actually use quality carbon folded steel, none of that stainless crap. check em out. www.coldsteel.com

    Made a mistake and gave my Spyderco to my stepson, that won't happen again. It was the best on the belt folder I ever had and sharpness was never an issue.
