I stopped by a knife shop that was going out of business and having a 40% - 70% off sale. I bought a few sharpeners (because they made me a deal I couldn't refuse) and picked up this little knife for $6.

Grips feel like genuine immitation G10 and blade as that cool zebra print that is sure to last at least 3 days.

Anyway, for $6, it's pretty neat.

It is worth $6 bucks just for coolness factor. I have a few cheap knives, and they reside in a drawer, but it does not mean I don't think they are cool to play with. They are. But I suspect at $6 that the pretty blade would snap like a twig under any stress. Cheap knives usually mean cheap steel, which is usually very brittle.

Hey hey hey... it was originally $14.95. ;)

I know it's junk. It's just about the best looking junk I've seen in a while.

Shoot, the sheath is worth 5 bucks alone!

I also bought a Gerber diamond sharpener for $5 and 17 ceramic sharpeners for $5.

I would have loved to have picked up an Emerson CQC-7B for $40 or a Microtech LCC for $90 but all the good knives were already moved to their new location. Guess they didn't want to drop profit on their nice knives.
