Tom wrote in with a deal tip (thank you!):
I came across this deal today and wanted to flag it for anyone still in the market for an EDC knife for the holidays. I have no personal experience with it, but the reviews are solid and it’s less than half price right now.
The Kershaw Brawler (1990) has a 3″ tanto-style blade, black glass-filled nylon handles, and a SpeedSafe assisted opening mechanism.
They say that it’s “a reliable companion for any backpacker, first responder, hunter, angler, gardener, hiker or landscaper,” and can be used for tasks such as “opening packages, piercing holes, cutting cords, opening cans, wilderness rescue and breaking down boxes.”
Sale Price: $18.64

Personally, I’d recommend springing a little more for a Kershaw Dividend knife (reviewed here). Walmart has some exclusive Dividend colors. But, the Dividend is nearly double the price of this Brawler.
The Brawler’s tanto-style blade can be useful for general work tasks. It’s not something I’d carry or use myself, but it looks to be a well-reviewed knife for under $20.
