    There are a few models that I sorely miss. The Kopa and Kiwi were great folders to carry. I really like bolsters and had a Harrier, but it felt huge compared to the Kopa and Kiwi. I have been...

    The Harrier reminds me of the Kopa. I love the micarta scales and pins. This could be a gentlemen-style folder that could come out with different interesting scales even if they were just various...

    I have two CRKT's that I like a lot. The Lake's P.A.L is a beast and so is the Graham Stubby Razel folder. I cannot speak about the one's you mentioned.
