    This has been a great passaround for me.. It has taught me to always look for a blade that locks

    well maybe I will see if I like the non locking blades for ease of use but who knows I tend to like to have that security insurance of the lock

    BobT and Kiwi on their way today to DallasSTB. He will likely get them tomorrow.

    Thoughts on both:

    BobT" It is not a knife for me. I did like the CF scale texture, but the knife itself did not inspire me. The choil was too small to ensure the knife couldn't close on my hand. It was also too difficult to open 1-handed. I know this is due to it being a slipit but it was annoying. It just felt 'cheap' somehow in hand...

    Kiwi: Now, the Kiwi I liked, though the blade shape is too radical for my preference. Still, it fit the hand well, and the choil was perfect to perfect accidental closure. It sure makes a nice little gentleman's folder, or maybe with a different blade shape, a knife my Mom might even carry.

    This is similar to my own impressions on these two knives. I too was underwhelmed with the Bob T. I was expecting the extremely high quality levels of the Gayle Bradley and Sage series, but for some reason it had a sort of cheap feel to it.

    The Kiwi was more impressive especially considering the price point, but I would have also liked a different blade profile, maybe a full flat ground drop point would be nice.
