I am looking for an EDC switchblade and am seeking input from the knowledgeable people here. But, there are stipulations. I am NOT looking for tactical / weapon knives that everyone carries these days. It will not be stuck in my pocket rim by a clip. It will be carried completely in my front pocket with other EDC stuff. 3.5" - 4" is my target size. I have carried a 3 blade Stockman German Eye (gentleman's folded) for years. It must be a "Lever Lock". I don't think they make one, but I have no interest in Benchmade. Price should be <$500. This knife will be carried and used daily as a tool. I generally prefer German knives... not a big fan of US options. OTOH there are a few custom knifesmiths whose work I admire.
