Delica 4 FRN VG10 FFG PE. Paid full retail at a brick and mortar over a decade ago; likely in the $50 range. There is no better pocket knife ... for me ... period. Still have it, still beautiful, still going strong!!! Tabulations indicate my cost is now less than a penny a day.
Moral of the story: buy quality, buy what works for you, use it but don't abuse it - in other words take care of it, and your rewards will be compounded significantly over time! I have yet to find myself wishing I had bought the $12 China knife.
So many knives - so little funds!!!
