Not really, it's not that touchy, but you can remove the spring (to negate the assisted opening) pretty easily if that worries you. Do a you tube search for "de-assisting Kershaw"... lots of how-to videos.

Victorinox "Pioneer X" New model. It's an ALOX Pioneer with the addition of scissors. I love their ALOX models and this is a sweet one.

Also have a Canal Street Cutlery "Coppersmith" barlow made for Kabar. It has polished copper bolsters with a copper Kabar copper dog head shield. Handles are dark brown jigged bone. An absolute gem!

Haven't seen that Pioneer model with scissors yet . . .

. . . it is a good tool addition to a great EDC knife. I've been carrying a SAK Climber Silvertech lately quite a bit, good for the woods or office environments. Found it in a pawn shop for just under $20 used.

Ember


Tickfaw
Thanks 9x19 for the recommendations. I picked up an Ember today. It was a few dollars more than the Tickfaw where I bought it, about $27. Still not bad. I compared both. The guy there took the Tickfaw out of it's package so I could compare them better.

Felt to me like the Ember is as light as the Tickfaw, and I can tell it's smaller and a lot thinner so I went with the Ember. It does need an edge put on it though. Not very sharp. It takes a bit of pressure to get it to flip open so I don't think it's likely to flip open in my pocket. I also like the fact that the clip, if o e chooses to use it, is reversible on the Ember, which it was not on the Tickfaw.

Thanks again.

Buck spitfire

A big retailer with initials WM has orange-handled Buck spitfire lockback knives on closeout at $21. The internet said this model 721 had blade wobble issues, but I got mine and it's solid as a rock. Shaving sharp 420HC blade, also. Flat in the pocket, never know it's there. Have used it a month and it's a great knife. Grab one if you can.

Got a becker bk16. Haven't used it yet but know Im going to like it. Just trying to decide to buy the mycarta handle or sand one of the pair that came with it for a little more traction. Going to eventually make my own kydex sheath.

Play pretties... Ganzo is a Chinese company but their quality, fit and finish is quite good, especially in the price range most of their knives fall into.

These autos are fun to play with, and represent a total investment of ~$100 for all four. They are legal to carry here, which is why I got them, to see if these types are something I'd want to go with on a regular basis.

Interesting Ganzos. What's the model number of the third one down (green handles)?

I have posted about these three new additions elsewhere, but -

From top to bottom the Ganzo model numbers are 707, 719, 7211, and 7482.

I like that FinnWolf, I've thought about one for awhile, but can't decide between it and a Marttiini folder. I have a number of fixed blade knives from both Mora and Marttiini and really like them.

which knife? too **** many. I will be putting a few in the classifieds. I just hate to see a good price knife sitting on a shelf all by itself.
