    The Promate Titanium knife is one of the best out there in my opinion and it is used by Bear Grylls - you will know how much he uses it if you've seen Man vs. Wild. I own this knife and wrote a product review on it It's also on sale at Amazon for under $60. Hope this helps :)

    Someone mentioned the Akona 950 to me recently. I can't speak to its qualities, but it fits the bill for this thread: a titanium dive knife coming in well under $100.

    This is the only part of this forum that I can confidently post in. You should checkout the Spyderco Caspian Salt. I've been sick at home for the past two weeks and I looked at so many knives before I got this one a few days ago. My criteria were good material and good sheath. Titanium is obviously the best material, but I had faith in spydercos choice of H1 steel. Additionally, the knife doesn't need to be taken apart to clean (theres nowhere on the handle that any dirt could really build up...I don't think water een gets in between the plastic and metal of the handle). Size is perfect for me, its sort of bigger than a bc knife, but you could easily strap it to a waist or should strap. Lastly, and most importantly is the sheath. Thensheath uses the (insert famous knife makers name here) hole to secure the knife. I don't have much experience with other dive knives, but the two or three that I have examined have the lamest sheaths...you either simply yank on the knife or you depress two very loose tabs that hold e knife in place by the hilt to unsheathe. I didn't want my knife to move at all when sheathed, and these style sheathes allowed the blade to wiggle. Eek. Keep in mind that plastic slides on metal easier under water too.

    You can find the knife for under 70 bucks. Blunt or pointed. I'll be posting a somewhat more formal review under a new thread soon.

    Sorry for all the typos, I'm on a wonky device.

    I'm new here by the way. Hello!
