    I wanted something pocketable - in a sheath - with a fixed blade. I want it for a 'woods-walker' application - the most tactical use being cleaning fish, etc, while camping, etc. It must be unobtrusive - not a belt-sheathed knife - has to be pocketable sheathed. Below is my previous co-favorite, a Buck 192 Vanguard (Tied with my 102BR - whose handle is a tad short.), with my newbies, thanks to Santa - a (L-R) Bark River 'Huntsman' (A2 blade) and a Benchmade 201 Activator+ (D2 blade). They are great - easily repointed a .5" maple dowel with all three, and shaved forearm hair afterwards. The B R is the nicest, but it's handle feels about 3/8" too short. Of course, it gives me a reason to buy another one... once I sell a kidney, of course. I thought I'd 'share'!

    Look at AG Russell's website. He's been providing just such knives for a while.

    Here I was thinking a pocketable fixed blade was a feature.

    But you just stick the blade in the sheath in your pocket, don't you.


    booooooooo.

    At least make a supertacky kydex/foam rubber quickdraw pocket holster for one of 'em or something.

    Why do you want it in your pocket when you can have it on your belt? I mean these I make are great size but I'd have to have a different sheath made for your application.

    These have a 2 1/4" blade and are 7 1/4" long:
