With the resurgence of handmade knives, tactical blades have taken a backseat. But that doesn't make them any less useful, and the SOG Escape is one of the best money can buy for under $50. It's currently on sale over at Amazon. You can currently pick one up for $32 -- $10 off its usual price.
The SOG Escape features a 3.4-inch (8.6-centimeter) partially serrated, clip point blade made of 9Cr18MoV steel. It also has an ambidextrous thumb stud for one-handed opening, a glass breaker, seatbelt/line cutter, and aluminum handle.
Even if it's not your idea of an EDC knife, it's the perfect addition to the car glove compartment.
