These are all integrals and designed by Tashi Bharucha. Made by David Deng of Reate Knives and are excellent made knives with incredible fit and finish. The bottom knife is called the Baby Machine and I have 2 on order. It's not a flipper, but will deploy just as fast with just a nudge of your finger. One vendor I know is selling them at $320 00 and they will sell out quickly.

Here's a few I found by just limiting the search criteria at KnifeCenter to $150-$350, made in the USA and 3-4" blade length. I then just selected some that caught my eye. They don't necessarily tick all the boxes - for example, a lot of really nice modern knives are now flippers. I'm partial to titanium and carbon fiber, so you'll see some of that here. I make no endorsement of of any of these knives - I just think they are kinda purdy...

Right now I am leaning tword the Pro Tech TR-4 Manual folder,,,plain edge,,satin finish
it has aluminum handles and I could then send the knife too someone
to anodize what color and what parts to do,,, a one of a kind-der
I found one that the knife outfit that will have one in in 2 weeks for $169.95 shipped
maybe 75.00 or so for anodizing and I got me a custom type knife
least thats where I am at now,,,but we all know how that rolls in the knife game

Will, autos are legal now in Michigan. I picked up this Protech and it's completely legal with a 3" blade. Check your mail as I sent you a message.

I posted to the auto forum that Michigan like some other states has changed their switch blade law. Which was both out-dated and handy-capped people had trouble opening a regular knife. Does that apply to all possible types, I do not know!

Only requirement in Michigan is the blade be 3" or less. This applies to OTF as well. I've carried knives that were larger than 3" blade and never had a problem. Even the LEO'S I've shown knives to never had a problem.

Howdy there Jim...how is Northern Michigan treating you these days ???
I knew about the Law change
I just prefer a Manual opening tactical vs the automatics...
and I really like that Pro Tech TR-4 Satin finish...and its a bit bigger with a 4 inch blade
I like the bigger knives for EDC
Good to hear from ya tho Jim, you came to mind when I went thru Dundee last fall....

This one is below your price that you were looking at. But I have this Bear Marigold Bone tactical that hits a lot of your specks and I would sell you this for 50 bucks. If nothing else, it would make a good back up knife. This yellow color would be very hard to lose.
Let me know if you have an interest in this.
