i carry an esee izula for a necker, but i do have to say +10 on the carbon steel mora! i have many knives that are much more expensive and one of my mora's is always in my kit. they are cheap, light, razor sharp, and dont let the price fool you, they are a great knife. i just wish i would have discovered mora's earlier on in my knife buying
+1 Mora w/ cobra braid lanyard, part of the 5C's.

Hmm don't get to wrapped up in a name!
look I am a huge enthusiast in knives and old weapons... I do not own many... But I came across this old Shrade that is out of production and 3 ounces... I misplaced it a year or two ago and found it at the bottom of a pool many months later and not a touch of rust. It locks it is easy to open it works wood and fuzz stick well.. and serves me. Has a clip on quick releasse for backpacks. Keep an eye out at farmers markets... $10
There was an Old Man with a owl,
Who continued to bother and howl;
He sat on a rail, And imbibed bitter ale,
Which refreshed that Old Man and his owl
Have you considered SOG knives? I know it's a little out of your price range, but for $40 to $50 you can have a really nice knife.
I carry this one with me all the time when I'm camping. It comes in really handy and the sheath is very nice. You can wear it in a boot, in your belt, or around your neck. You get two blades and it just plain works. I think it looks cool, too.
I really like the Becker Necker...I think it's the BK11 now... I also have the BK9 which is an awesome camp knife..(just have to get someone too carry it for you) :-)
Columbia River Ikoma Keydashi Knife
I have a BK 11 and like it a lot but I came across a an interesting knife I had not seen before at REI by Columbia River called the Ikoma Keydashi. I had a store credit from a return so I pulled the trigger. It has a very interesting sheath design. I am pretty sure there is a youtube video out on it.
