Sometimes it's guns and sometimes it's knives. :) I just now came home with a new Spyderco "Stainless Steel" scale "Cricket". It's a wonderful, thin little knife! Plus, while at the shop, I purchased a thin little Benchmade "BenchMite". I've got this thing for titanium and the "Mite" has blue Ti scales. An interesting feature is the lock. The Mite locks open OR CLOSED. No chance of an accidental "blade opening" in my pocket!
Mite blade steel:154CM
SS Cricket blade steel:VG-10

KR :) Happiness is a couple of new pocket knives!

I sent Darrel a couple of e-mails once. He answered them personally, nicely, and quickly. That makes a person go up a couple of notches, in my book.

I reckon there are NO photos of it, but I wish you had been able to post a picture of the stainless steel scale "Cricket". It really is quite different. It does not have a liner lock. It has a "frame lock", kinda like a Sebenza. The frame lock makes for a very thin knife.

Sorry, KR. Even the Spyderco site doesn't show it.
