Fred you may remember way back when you first started your hunt, you fancied my PXL folder from Fallkniven in Sweden, but it was a little too pricey. They now have another PXL, very nice for about 180 dollars in Canadian money. Below is the description. Check out any Fallkniven dealer in the USA and you will find it.
I am getting old I guess for I can't remember how to post a picture anymore. Everything I try fails. Help!
Enjoy Fred.

As the name says, this is Fallkniven's new work horse folder. A larger liner lock for every day use. Hard working, solid, great engineered knife. Steel is the latest laminate cobalt stainless steel to 60-61 HRC, super strong and a great cutting steel.

Downside is that it doesn't come with a pocket clip :-\

Yeah, it doesn't come with one, but....

Here you go, brother:



Very nice,

(Aside - When did Fallkniven start making knives in Japan? Is that "new"?)

You are very kind mate!
Not new Ken! They have been doing it for a few years now, A lot of the metals Fallkniven use are Japanese. I am not sure, but perhaps the Japanese insist on the knives being made there in order for their proprietary metals to be used.Whatever is the truth of the matter, the knives are top of the line.

Hi LeoMitch,
Initially I *DID* consider the Fallkniven, and this time price really wasn't the issue, I think bulk was...I don't know if I'm ready for something that heavy as an EDC. So I plan to buy a heavy piece of junk at a local flea market and give it a test once it warms up here a little.

So I've made a decision...I pulled the trigger on a Benchmade 586 Mini Barrage with M390 steel.
Its a little chunky, so may help wean me into something near the size of the Fallkniven.
I really waffled over this one, it was a tough choice, but ultimately Spyderco lost because they are all so darn ugly...and I didn't have a place like Smokey Mountain Knife Works to go touch and hold them before buying.

Thanks for all the great ideas!

I'll review the knife once it shows...

The right choice is the one that makes your heart skip a beat, puts a grin on your face and it feels like magic in your hand. Only you can find that. Good choice my friend!

All the best

I think you made a great decision! Their minis are great knives! I have a mini Grip and it is a great little knife. Life is tuff when there is not enough days of the week to carry all your favorite edc's.
Now on to the next purchase :-)
