Ballistic MT-A705
MSRP ($):

If you are looking for a knife that is not just well built, but also looks very impressive then the MT-A705 by MTech USA is worth some serious consideration. While it is very much a budget priced knife, it definitely doesn’t look like it and will serve you well on fishing trips too. The design of the MT-A705 is very sleek, but it still feels very sturdy to hold. As with all spring assist folding knives, this one can easily be opened with one hand, which is very useful when you quickly need to cut something out on the water. It also locks securely into place with a liner lock to make it safe when not in use.

MTech uses what they call titanium coating for the knife, which certainly makes it look very nice, but it also scratches very easily. The coating also appears to be applied a little unevenly, which is something that a closer look at the knife quickly makes obvious. The ergonomics are decent enough, but the bottle opener at the end does have a tendency to dig into the palm if used without wearing gloves. For easy carrying this knife has a stainless steel pocket clip. The stainless steel blade of the A705 is 3.75-inch, 3mm thick and sharp enough to get the job done.

As long as you can live with the fact that this knife is not going to last a very long time, especially with heavy use, then it’s worth the small asking price. If you require the use of a knife a lot, then it is worth saving up for a more durable and dedicated fishing knife, but for the occasional general purpose use out on the water or during your fishing trip this one will suffice.
