Comparing the sizes of the Benchmade Bugout 535 %26 Mini Bugout 533 The Kershaw Leek is the perfect size for most tasks and fits comfortably in a pocket.

Among many knife fans, the Drifter is constantly featured in conversations about the best budget EDC knife.

The ULA Alpha Knife: A ridiculously lightweight fixed blade knife that was designed specifically for backpackers and hikers doing daily trail activities such as preparing food and opening packages. Sanrenmu isn't trying to run his knife through Sebenza, so the company isn't counterfeiting (which is a big problem in the knife world), but the similarities are hard to deny. If you are not willing to do these things, the longevity of your knife will be shortened and therefore you might be better suited for a pocket knife that can be easily replaced. In addition to that, this knife also comes with a patented compression lock that could be the strongest and most reliable one ever equipped in a folding knife.
USE: A good pocket knife will certainly come in handy in all kinds of unexpected situations, but keep in mind what you plan to use your knife most often for. You can maneuver the knife and do it with one hand by pressing the lock and bending the closed knife against a leg or other solid object, but that's uncomfortable. The knife should rest inside the pocket with the blade closed flush with the front or back seam so that you can easily grasp the knife and prevent the blade from accidentally opening. Another thing to consider when choosing a knife is to find a blade shape that suits the intended use of the knife.
That said, the Twitch is a high-quality knife for the price and a great choice for anyone who needs a small knife for daily commute.
