I have a Delica, but one with the SS handle rather than the much lighter weight FRN. What disappointed me was that the blade came with a saber grind rather than flat grind. That’s just the way Spyderco made them. Now that summer is here (in SOCAL summer comes early) the weight of a knife is noticeable particularly when wearing lightweight nylon. That brings me to the Delica at the link, however, the Dozier’s $21.38 is like 1/3 the price of $74.72 - nice.

Jeanette - The obvious answer is to get both the Dozier and one of the cheap utility knives. The Dozier goes with you as part of your EDC supplementing your EMT shears; the utility knife stays wherever you open packages and cut up cardboard. $.02, but that’s how I’d do it and it’s a rationale to buy another sharp wink

Aren't Mora knives fixed blade? I need a folder.

Opinel knives are mostly folders IIRC.

I think it fits since the reason I joined this forum is that I asked why is the knife is the primary tool. Eleven and a half years later I'm asking which knife to get.

I picked up a couple of Doziers on clearance, some years ago. No regrets.

Good little utility folders. Decent steel, thin in the pocket and sturdy enough for any reasonable task.

I would take one on a hike without reservation.

My 2c.

Dozier knives are usually good. A Spyderco Dragonfly or Ladybug would also serve you well.

I quite like the Dragonfly for a keychain knife -- handy to carry, but just big enough to be useful. But WAY too spendy unless (like a young chap I know) you snag it for half the outrageous MSRP. Great buy, dude, but why didn't you grab one for me?

All these posts and no one has brought up the Swiss army knife in its various permutations? Gotta be something there...

The OP specified a locking blade. Otherwise a SAK would be first in line.

I'm concerned for Jeanette: why don't you already have such a knife? IS SOMEONE HOLDING YOUR KNIVES HOSTAGE???
