    Love the Grey G-10 on the Caly Super Blue and looking forward to this one. Just noticed the jimping towards the tip of the blade.
    Cheers!

    I read the description two or three times and I couldn't figure out if it was Peel-Ply or smooth G-10.

    I know there was a poll a while back to help decide.

    dapagco, you have any idea?

    Thanks.

    Illustration on the web page looks like peel ply to me, and I think Sal said it was going to be peel-ply a while back.

    Look at the bottom of this add in the highlighted features.

    Limited edition - only 600 pieces.

    PS
    I have one and I know of someone else who has one. That means only 598 pieces left. Better hurry!

    Welcome to the forum. I think the Jester is a great little knife. It's the best one I've ever owned that size anyway.

    I know this sounds silly, but I have my Jester Sprint and Yojimbo II sitting here and I hold them both the same way. With my thumb on the spine of the knife. Of course if I was in a knife fight I'd pick the Jester over the Yo 2

    I'd pick the Jester too. Less weight to carry as I'm running my a** off.

    I have 2 so that's 4. From what I've read on this forum I've known of 10 at the most including ours. I don't think many were made available by Spyderco for some reason. Several people have mentioned they want one so I doubt if they last when the appear. I've never been a big fan of knives that small but I really like the Jester.

    I've seen kydex sheaths for the Ladybug for a while now. I'm wondering if the Jester would fit in one. Does anyone have one of those Ladybug sheaths and a Jester? The sheath holds the knife at the pivot end and covers less than half the knife. You can use a lanyard for your neck if you want to.

    Here is an example on eBay for a Ladybug and two other knives. I sent the seller a message and he said he didn't have a Jester so he didn't know if a Jester would fit. If anyone has a Ladybug and Jester I guess you can look at both and get a good idea of if they are much different in size.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Choose-a-Kyd...item35b8f4264a

    I'm not sure if I really would use one of these but I might and thought someone else may be interested. I don't think Spyderco sells anything like this for the knife.
