    Folding knife

    Have managed to lose ,y current knife which was a gerber paraframe.

    What have folks got lying in the drawer they arent using before i go buy new? Has to be able to be opened one handed, thinner profile the better it rides in the pocket. Not too worried about steel type, 90% of its work is opening boxes so it is usualy blunt. 2-3.5" blade. Dont want a spring assisted ope er (had a gerber that was and used to cut finger whilst ope ing it)

    Have had the likes of crkt m21 before and its too heavy, liked my spyderco delica but thats a bit pricey considering how often i lose them!

    So what do folks have they arent using?

    Don't have one for sale but just get a mercator light, slim and great steel if you decide to take it hunting

    Knife's no use blunt.
    For box opening what you want is a 90's car and just use the key.

    Hard to get lighter or more slim than the Gerber LST

    Don't even feel it in your pocket. Cheap too

    Should add that it needs a pointy bit on the end. Tikka, have had one of those tiny sypdercos before, good knife and keep it in my pack as a back up. Works fine for most things but there is the odd task i find the short blade lacking.

    Gwh i like that gerber but lacking a thumb stub or ring to open easily.

    Id say you shot the hare, posed the knife there for the photo, then chucked the hare to the dog uncut to save having to clean the knife

    They are stunners from Terry on here from Knives 4 Africa. Great to buy from. These are both giraffe bone handles.

    Damn. You know me too well. Took 5 minutes to decide to stick knife into the log.
