Benchmade is the way to go
I carry a Benchmade Auto and have for about 10 years. As a matter of fact it has been through 3 pocket clips and one spring. I have sent it back to the factory each time for repairs and resharpening. I have lots of knives but love my Benchmade. If I dont have my Benchmade with me I feel Naked !! I find it comforting to know that I have it with me should I need it, but I dont feel like I carry it as a backup weapon. Hope this helps !!
