    Well, if you ever to get to the point you can’t stand not having one, hit me up. I have a spare on display that I’m not eager to sell, but I would probably do so if the guy asking was a particularly nice fellow.

    These have all been carried and used, but don’t have the wear the first four have. OH

    thanks, time flies can’t believe 8+ years have come and gone.

    thanks Carl, I think my very first post on BF was of my peanut, I’ll need to check.
    The blades especially the pen blade have thinned a bit, I had to remove a bit of steel from behind the edge of the clip blade a while back as the edge rose higher and the blade stock became thicker. The mark side scale cracked after the 2000th drop haha, but other than that it’s held up under heavy use.

    It definitely is impressive. Has that been your sole carry? Or do you supplement with others?

    No, I am a mere mortal powerless to the lure of a sharpened edge....heck I’m a knife nut, I’ve gone stretches with it as my only knife, but I usually have more than one knife. The peanut is my always knife I’ve never not carried it since it was gifted by my wife and daughter, the pen blade sees a ton of use it’s usually my go to blade for mundane tasks, scraping, probing, awl type tasks. My first Case was a 6201 I got in 1980 when I was 8, that saw pocket time from then until around 1993, I’ll have to dig that knife out.

    It took me a double take to work out why your fingers looked so weird. :D

    Yep - 1976 Mini Copperhead. The design has changed slightly since 1976, for the better in my opinion. (Edited to better show the comparison of old and current designs.)

    Most currently available Mini Copperheads have a Wharncliffe main but I prefer the clip.

    These two Old Timers have seen a lot of pocket time over the years.

    Whereas, this Old Gent-knocking on the door of a century- shows a lot of pocket wear. Mostly not mine :D But I do let him out under supervision from time to time;) Remington Sleeveboard.

    I looked a good while for the two blade #14 with a clip main blade. Found one at a knife show from a GEC dealer. Saw it, handled it, said I'll buy it. I prefer the two blade #14 and they are a perfect watch pocket knife for me. But I have this little SAK problem..... I carry the Vic Small Tinker but own a number of the 14's (the two blade clip version, the two-blade barlow version, and the two blade spear point version). I may have to take a picture of the little Small Tinker for this thread as I don't believe I've photographed it yet. It lives in my watch pocket every day!
