So here are the two I recently ordered. The first is a Case Sodbuster Jr. in yellow and CV. The second is a GEC Barlow in Sawcut Yellow Goldenrod Bone. I'm very happy with both.
I've had one other Case knife before and swore them off as I was not impressed with the last one I had. The Sodbuster Jr is great though. Although the edge bevel is pretty uneven and there is a huge burr still on it, it is pretty sharp. Good snap and a great size. I'm looking forward to carrying it often.
The GEC is just beautiful. Smaller than expected but pretty robust nonetheless. The springs are stout but I can
manage to get the blades open without completely destroying my thumbnail. The main clip and the secondary pen blades are both relatively sharp and the F&F is excellent. There is no doubt that there are several more GEC's in my near future. Thanks for all the pointers on helping me with my new slipjoint purchase. I am officially hooked
