    I enjoyed my Superleaf, until I got my Para2 which is better in every possible way.

    I could not get over the hook at the end of the handle, it dug both into my hand and into my pocket.

    It's all relative.

    The BBL (steel ball bearing with a coil spring) is complicated compared to a liner or compression lock (steel bar that's part of the frame) but not so much compared to an Axis...

    The Yojimbo is a great utility knife, but if you drop it and it lands point first the tip is likely to break. Ask me how I know :mad:

    Is there anything coming up this year?

    Very cool, love how dinged up they are.

    I'm currently wearing a Mudman, the solar is very cool and it weighs very little for such a big watch. Oh yeah, it's got a digital compass as well :D

    This is what I'm thinking of right now.

    My Bravo 1 (S35VN :p) is my favorite fixed blade. Even with it's stout .20" thick blade, it is an incredible cutter thanks to the convex edge.
