So what’s a good folding knife?

So for my 19th birthday that is coming up real soon, I'm very likely to be getting a new pocket knife to replace my old worn out one, I would prefer it to be a folding knife. Knife length isn't a problem due to the laws of my state. So what do you recommend for a folder?

Just bought the RAT1, but with upgraded D2 steel for a bit less than $50 shipped. I had been watching this for a few years, and I noticed nearly all reviews of it raved about the original feel of the knife. But their takeaway was the AUS8 steel blade should be switched out for improvement. Rat Knives listened and I took it - lets see how it plays out.
