1) Benchmade Mini Griptilian
We’ll start with one of the most beloved knives under $100 by knife enthusiasts — the Benchmade Mini Griptilian. The Mini Grip is the go-to knife for anyone looking for a solid and reliable American-made EDC (it’s currently my personal EDC too). It’s hard to top this knife.
The Mini has a 2.91-inch blade made from 154CM steel. You can get it in a sheepsfoot blade with Round Hole, drop point with thumb stud, or tanto with thumb stud. Another great aspect of the knife is that the grippy (hence the name) nylon handle comes in several different colors, from pink to blue.
2) Spyderco Delica 4
Spyderco makes a ton of great knives at a budget cost, but for a true representation of the quality and design elements of the brand, there’s the Delica. This is another truly beloved knife from the knife community because of its versatile size, excellent construction, and interesting design.
