I promised myself that I will buy a knife when I come back from my conference at the Philippines this month. I wanted to buy a knife, then I got the balisong that was damn crappy, so now I will buy a good knife that will not fail on me. Basically there are two choices.
Cold Steel Ti-Lite 6
This knife is a monster, but in practical is not very convenient to carry as it is damn long. Maybe for value purposes, since Cold Steel does not produce them anymore. I know one shop that has one, and it costs RM300.
Has a very good reputation, and is more people friendly, unlike the Ti-Lite that will cause people to flee in terror. Its around RM220, if I am not mistaken.
I saw one knife that I cannot afford as it costs around rm950. Its a Swiss Army damascus knife. There are only three in Penang, and two have been taken already.
