    Other than the Cruwear Millie only Taichung Spydies are on my radar at the moment.

    Agree with you about the PPT. If only they had swapped the steel liners and back spacer for titanium it would have been perfect

    Contemplating getting a Techno and Domino..

    I'm a little torn on it. I like it, but I don't carry it anymore because my keychain got quite a bit bigger very shortly after I bought it this summer. I was going to make it my camping knife, but I'm after a fixed blade for that now so I may sell the Tuff. I've never sharpened it, and it's only done some light use on cardboard/electrical tape/cargo cord. I could probably be convinced to let it go for the right trade or offer, but I haven't fully decided yet. I like the choil, it lets you choke up close and it changes the blade's angle with relation to your hand doing so. You can also unlock the blade and swivel it closed about 10 or 15 degrees before it hits the detent in the lock, and this allows you to choke up even more, and your index finger holds the blade from closing. I found it useful cutting something underneath some equipment racks. I'll try to snap a picture of what I'm trying to describe (Probably poorly).

    Locked open holding it behind the choil (Yes I have the hands of an old man).



    Locked open holding it by the choil.



    Not locked open, but not closing due to finger in the choil, and the detent in the lock, and thumb choked up onto the spine of the blade (It's surprisingly comfortable held like this).
