    Nice knife.

    Kershaw makes some nice pocket knives for not a lot of money. My everyday knives are a Kershaw Zing and a Spyderco ZDP189 Delica.

    You don't know the definition of money pit until you get into folders. The folder guys like Elishewitz and Onion are the ones making the bank.

    I say go there Scott! Folders are a design bonanza!

    However, being performance minded, you might well find out, as I have, that folders are really not optimal for much of anything other than taking up very little room. This is why they are so fun to see, play with, design and collect--they are creations that almost don't make sense--a very sharp cutting tool, on a pivot that closes right where your hand goes, has small cracks and gets put in a dark, dusty, lint-filled pocket, and are made to be attractive, and then hidden away.

    But fun nevertheless.

    I still think people need to carry toys--folders are just so tempting to fiddle with, open and close, and flip around. We really should be carrying yo-yos or something.

    Yeah, thought that looked like a Kershaw.

    Neat little knives. The "Speedsafe" feature really works.

    My EDC for years has been a plain little "Chive" 1600. Small enough to clip into the watch pocket on your Jeans, takes a decent edge & is a pretty handy little tool.

    Recently picked up a Columbia River Koji Hara designed "Ichi." OK knife, but don't like it nearly as much as the Kershaw.
