I had to look up OTF: Out the front. Were they once called switchblades?

I haven't been much of a carry-blade aficionado before but I'm going to start. I may have a relative working for Microtech Knives in NC. https://microtechknives.com/ They have some mean looking blades

Does anyone here want to chime in on brands and styles?

This one doubles as a money clip.

Nah, I have swords not knives. Swords are too hard to
conceal.

I carry a Kershaw Blur. If I'm somewhere that's not problematic to openly carry a knife, I carry a Helle Alden. I would still carry my Benchmade Bedlam daily, but it's got a 4" blade, which is illegal to conceal here for the most part.

I have a knife collection that numbers about 45 or 50. Mostly autos, some OTF, mostly side openers, Gerber, Pro-Tech, Micro Tech, Benchmade, SOG, Buck, AGA Campolin, Kershaw, Piranha, Rigid and others.

I don't usually carry a knife, but, if I do it's usually my Leatherman Core.

I have almost 200 knives.

From my collection and what I've learned. The best OTF for the money is Microtech. Best switch for the money is Kershaw. Build quality, blade material and function, you can't beat those two brands for relatively low price. :)

I have several of both makers. Every one is tight and still functions wonderfully even after a shit ton of use. :)

The Kershaw "Launch" series is fantastic. I have a few models from that line.

The Microtech Ultratech is the best OTF I own. I have a ton of OTF knives....
