    It's the same size as below. Surprisingly comfortable in hand despite the very small size.

    I know a guy who may be able to help ya out on that.

    Does anyone else find it virtually impossible to find the perfect EDC? I've tried about 5 in the past few months, and I keep going back to my Gerber Paraframe for daily stuff and my SAK Treker for work. I kinda feel like steel, etc is a bit less important with an EDC, because of the abuse they take. Or, mine do anyways. The SAK is an incredible tool and I've cut bumpers and dashes off of cars with it, popped open melted cupboards, and picked locks with it (and a haligan). I don 't know if I'd be as likely to do all of this with a $350 knife, with S35VN, or another similar steel.

    Kitchen knives are easy (as an owner). I can honestly say I have at least 5 blades I could use every day for the rest of my life, if I had to.

    I agree. Nothing is really perfect, since there are a lot of things that you often ask a pocket knife to do. For me, my choice of what to put in my pocket has partly to do with what I'm doing that day, and partly with what I'm wearing. I'm in Texas, where it can be hot 8+ months out of the year. I *hate* having a knife bouncing around in my pocket in shorts of lightweight pants. So -- everything has to have a decent clip of some sort. If I want something with a decent blade, I usually carry a Spyderco Dragonfly or Caly 3. Often, though, utility trumps blade quality, and I carry an alox SAK Cadet with one of these little clips. It makes it hang flat in my front or back pocket, without making a lump or flopping around:
