    I have nearly bought the Wharncliff bladed Urban so many time I have lost count. What stopped me each time was the fairly high price in relation to the many other cheaper slip-jointed Spyderco...

    I'd like to add my vote for a slipjoint - something slim, light, low profile and pocket-friendly :) 2mm blade thickness, maybe a wharnie shape, smooth G10 scales or FRN with no liners ... a...

    Ahhhhhhh, right ... blade width is a strange criterion to put on a knife - especially if the length is only 2-inches ... I wonder why they care how wide it is? :S

    Exactly why I asked ... I have held-off buying the existing slipit Kiwis because they're nice but I am not a big fan of steel or bone/antler scales. I prefer G10 or CF in the hand :)

    Am I missing something? What about the Squeak? It's non-locking and sub 2-inches.

    Great photos Wouter - very well done :)

    I love the lines of the Kiwi G10 (though I agree that CF would be better for a gentlemen's folder) but is it possible to have it non-locking? :) For such...

    I'd avoid taking any knife in my pocket or cabin bags anyway - just put everything in your suitcase and if you have to open it when you arrive then as long as it's a folder and non-assisted you...

    I'm not a church-goer, unless I get invited to a wedding, christening or funeral. But my gut feelings are that you shouldn't carry a "weapon" in church but a knife isn't a weapon per-se ... it is a...

    It's probably next on my list to get hold of actually. I just bought the new UKPK FRN BD-1 because it is a tried & tested design and it was a bit cheaper :)

    I'd have thought that, as long as it isn't an actual rust-spot, that any oxidation would be a microscopic layer over the steel's edge. In that case it might make the cutting edge minutely rougher and...

    I've just received my full-flat UKPK Lightweight in black and can confirm that the back-spring holds the knife open *much* stronger than in both the old FRNs and the G10/CF. It really takes a hard...
