Question For The Knife Aficionados

Alright, I am in the market for a new knife and need a little bit of help. I am willing to spend $150.00, no more.

Here are the specs I want:
No longer then 4in blade (overall length no more then 8in)
Foldable
Grip material does not concern me
Ridged blade (preferable, not necessary).
Blade material- S

Here is one in particular that I like:
Heckler & Koch34 Tactical Folder

All suggestions are appreciated.

No...
Best butterfly knife under $150 would definitely be a Benchmade, which is currently "Made in USA". And I'm not aware of ANY popular German or Japanese butterfly knife manufacturers. And balisongs aren't for everyone. I think he's looking more toward folders.

I retract my previous statement....

You are correct sir.

*bows head*

Benchmade is one of the best knife manufacturers on the planet.

Great butterfly knifes are make from them.

Are you talking about gravity knives or folders?

Most Benchmades are waaay out of my price range.

He's talking about neither. A Benchmade 42 is around $125.

- Butterfly or "Balisong" knife, a folding knife with a split
handle, did not have blade released by force of gravity or
application of centrifugal force, and did not constitute a
"gravity knife"... (1987).

I'm not sure if I'm getting what you're saying, but butterfly knives aren't "folders". I like them because they're fun as hell. Check out this vid:
