    Must have!

    The little Foltses are dandy.

    The silhouette looks like a starving aardvark or something, but for $25 and change, go for it. It might make a good linoleum knife if nothing else. Of course, if you don't need a linoleum knife... ;)

    Ok, here goes - Unless your paws are sized just right for those finger grooves you won't find it a good fit and ulitmately won't carry it. The steel isn't up to yard work. The color is "wrong". It looks too much like a ...:evil:

    It is supposed to be mighty small.

    It is comfortable enough to use as a whittler with no issues.


    Truth be told, I wouldn't mind knocking off a bit off of the height of the finger grooves.

    JShirley and I are in agreement that the minimalist is one of the few fully finger grooved knives that isn't annoying.

    Nope, no way ... don't want Art yelling at me again. :D

    I, too, like the look of it. O'course I already own a couple of Columbia River's more unique designs in small knives, so ...

    I, like a decent neck knife. Though the curve might become annoying for cutting a lot of multiflore rose.

    I don't know?

    I looks ideal to me for fence monsters.

    Stick it behind the offending sapling or vine and jerk straight back.

    I coulda used one last week while ripping out old carpeting at a friend's house. Bugger-all if I could find a hawkbill knife, the one thing that seems like it was specifically designed to cut carpeting out.

    Might have to pick one of those up! I like the sheath, too.

    Well, so much for someone taking some sense into me.

    Too late!
    I just ordered one.

    We shall see what we shall see when it gets here, I guess?

    I guess I'm the only one that likes full size handles. I have a few knives like that and never use them because I can only get 2 or 3 fingers on the handle. When I made knives I made a skinner with a 2 1/4" blade but it still had a 5" handles for real work.

    Yes, I agree.
    I like full size handles too.

    Most all of the knives in my extensive collection are full size.
    I just never owned a neck-knife before, or even a Karambit type knife before, and decided I like that one.
    Or even a fixed blade that small if you don't count a few little pocket knives.

    For my very specific use that Folts Keramin may or may not work?
    But it's only money, and not much at that.
    I spent more tonight on dinner for my wife & I.

    Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks?

    If you feed him different treats?
    And can get him to try them!

    I don't know how I feel about this knife, it looks like a handy item to have when cutting the cheese and salami. Oh never mind, probably illegal where I live anyway.

    That's what I told the wife just today when I "needed" $55 worth of guitar stuff. Could've spent a lot more but I showed some restraint for once. lol

    Sure, go for it. You can always sell it as "LNIB" if you don't like it. :)
