For most budget knives on the market, you get what you pay for. And while they're usually fine for light tasks, they don't exactly inspire confidence when taking on real hard use. The few that do, however, tend to be fixed blades or designs that are just too bulky in general for EDC. StatGear's Ausus pocket knife aims to buck the trend as their latest Kickstarter project set to deliver this December. It's an overbuilt folding knife with the premium materials and EDC-focused features to match at a solidly affordable price point.

The hard use potential of the Ausus begins with its 3.5" D2 steel blade. D2 is a tool steel that's high in both carbon and chromium, giving the blade excellent sharpness, hardness, and edge retention even after frequent hard use. While the Ausus was designed with large tasks in mind, it features jimping on the top of the blade for added control during precision work. Deployment of the blade is easy with its oversized, ambidextrous thumbstuds and internal ball bearings.

The Ausus's large 4.5" handle lets you get a solid, full-handed grip on the knife for when the task at hand requires a little elbow grease. The knife comes equipped with a liner lock, which also adds some proportional thickness to the handle to let it stand up to batoning and other more extreme situations. The canvas micarta handles will stand up to rough and regular use, plus they provide excellent grip even when wet. Micarta doesn't just lend durability and grip, it also gives the knife a more elegant and luxurious look as it's a material traditionally used on classic gent's knives.

Despite the Ausus's size and beefier design, it isn't a problem for your pockets. It's mostly thanks to its extremely deep-carrying pocket clip design. It allows for sleek low-profile reversible tip-up carry to make the knife practically disappear in the pocket.

The Ausus is available in two different colorways: full-black with an oxide blade and brown with a satin finish. With its rock-solid yet elegant design, you might think the Ausus would cost you a pretty penny, but that's not the case. A pledge of 43 dollars or less to its fully-funded Kickstarter can secure you one of your own. Back the project at the link below.

Is this a UK legal knife?
I just pledged for one. We'll see, but these guys have done several (read: close to twenty) successful campaigns. I got one of their other small pocket knives, and the quality was superb.
Like the knives!
Looks similar to an Ontario Rat 1
