    I have just ordered one of these, can't wait to try it. It will be my office and airplane carry(if the blade lenght is longer than 6 cm or 2,362" it's bye bye knife in europe).

    12C27 steel and a nice hollow grind.

    I'm thinking this is a great RFP floater as it is only 2,625" folded.

    That is a custom build by Alan Davis with a reclaimed old saw mill blade and Koa scales. It probably has the smoothest action in my entire collection.

    Other than Swiss Army knives, I don't have too many "mini" knives, and those I do have are kicking around in one of my knife chests somewhere because I don't use them. I have larger hands, so I don't tend to enjoy knives of that size. That said, I do have several knives, like the Kershaw Shuffle, an ESEE Candiru, and a few others.

    He's right here on bladeforums. I actually have 2 pieces from him. Great maker with a ton of talent. You can check out some of his work in The Knife Exchange.

    I use both of these almost daily. Obviously not for heavy work but both open with one hand.
    Christy and Korcraft.

    I've had a Christy knife or three since the late 1950's. My dad was an enthusiast of the little slider, and gave both my sister and I one when we were kids. My sister Anne used hers it stop an attempted sexual assault when she was 20. They have a fascinating history with both the U.S. armed forces and certain government agencies. I use mine daily for small cutting jobs like opening packages and cutting twine in the garden.

    I'm curious about the Korcraft. Does it use regular X-acto blades?

    A little keychain knife is surprisingly useful

    Cool story.
    I think it is an X-acto blade but not 100% sure. Comes with extra blades in different shapes, a bottle opener and extra bushing. Quite handy little guy. You can remove the blade with a coin (unscrew the nut) if caught at the airport (in the old days).

    Yes. That little knife is hanging round the neck of an ex-girlfriend...... :(. (See post 31!)

    So need to make another!

    Awesome comparison picture compared to the Mnandi. My edc is a Mnandi, it was my office/work knife. I wear a suit so I can't get clip anything on my pocket. However based on the weight and sleekness of the Mnandi I made it my always knife. I never came across anything I couldn't do with it.

    Congrats on the purchase.
