There are no knife too large, just too small pockets.

Kershaw Shuffle II (I’m just a babe in the woods when it comes to blades).

This is probably my biggest knife disappointment ever. I was VERY excited to buy this blade, only to find out the tanto tip is annoying, the shape and design is very rough for front picket carry, and the clip catches on everything for back pocket carry.

I’ve been carrying the Boos Blades carbon fiber Smoke every since my wife gave it to me on Christmas.

If you need something small, kershaw scallion about the same size and light years better or a spyderco dragonfly, both very light and easy on pockets

How about to heavy? Anything heavier than my Super CQC 8 may as well have bullets in it. Wink

I’ve got one of those and it’s a really handy knife. It lives in my grab and go bag and goes everywhere with me.

A few things I like about it:
The saw is sharp and a decent length to be usable. I’ve used it to get tinder and small kindling together many times and it cuts like new.
The blade has the serrations and the plain portions in the correct spots. I use the plain part for controlled cuts in wood for making feather sticks and stuff like that. The serrations on most other combo blades interfere with this. Having it towards the end of the blade allows them to be used to cut rope, twine, fibers etc. very easy. I like it.
It also has pretty usable tools and nothing you really don’t need. I don’t need a corkscrew, magnifier, nail file, fish scaler or multipurpose hook.

Got this one recently from a friend on BLF. Great knife. Been carrying it lately. A bit on the large size, not suitable for summer attire but works out fine in a pair of jeans. One of my favorites for sure.

They should bring this back with their Sandvik steel from the 910 series and make it with polished red G10 scales.

Yes, it’s a bit on the heavy side. Not sure of the exact weight. I don’t have a small scale to weigh it. The grip is also quite slippery when pulling it out of your pocket and manipulating the flipper tab. Once you have it open and a decent grip on it it’s just fine but, it’s pretty easy to lose a grip on and drop. I imagine it would only get worse when it is wet. I don’t grab it when I know I’m going to be doing heavy work with a knife. Everybody who see’s it really likes the look and feel of the knife though.

Sanrenmu 9165 slip joint with hidden locking feature:
!{width:70%}https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-scAXN1LMNt0/XCDKv5tX5kI/AAAAAAAAjgk/1va-OL9vT...!

Is that simple enough to remove the pin from the handle (from both positions)? Can the knife be used safely without the pin?

Yes, it’s quite simple. You can lock the folder even in closed position by the pin. The spring of the slip joint mechanism is strong enough for safe use and there’s also a half stop when you open / close the 9165.

By the way my Sanrenmu 1161 weights 137 g (4.83 oz).

Ganzo FH12 (review here). It’s a nice surprise because it’s slimmer than the G10 version and it weights only 3.91 oz / 111 g.

Thanks for the info on that. I saw that the other day and was wondering about it. Think I will pick one up. I have a FH11 so I think I will grab one of those as well. Thanks again.
