In the spirit of my two blade choice being the GTI folder, I think this might be my next folder buy, depending upon my finding the best price. This is the Mini.

I did let it go. I'd love to see a Battle Grade SR101 Leaner. INFI is great but I only kept it in 6" and greater.

I hate even THINKING about shopping for a folder. My criteria keeps me limited to mostly just Spyderco, and only a handfull of Spydercos meet my criteria. I'm hard to shop for when it comes to knives, but I think most of us are.

Folders are tough out here because of the import laws (not possession, just Customs import regs). Many of the folders that I love the look of I can't even handle, when you do find them here even average priced blades (in the US) are expensive !! Think ZT550s selling for $400.

All that said, I have more than my share of folding blades, the Emerson A100 is a true favourite as is the ZT350. For what I use a folder for (mostly) the Buck 110FG I have had for 30 years does most of it !

I think of folders as disposable. I have a couple Spydercos, and 2 SAKs. The SAKs have never been used and are on the chopping block. I'd like to replace them with couple of Delica4 FFGs or similar. I agree with Adam...Spyderco does what I need from a folder (which is: be light to carry and sharp).

Andy will cry after reading the next statement...

I was just showing a coworker one of my original 0.22 Coated LE ASHs and noticed a nice little nick in the edge mad

Regarding the coated LE ASH...

I had selected this one from my horde o' ASH for testing and field carry. The little ding in the edge just makes it easier for me to take her out and beat her.

No no no.... you have clearly breached the "Care and Love" clause in the ownership contract for that .22 and you need to send it to me, where a "Forever Home" is provided to all ASH1s in need... wink

Just before I left for Africa I actually received two coated .22s from the Custom Shop laugh One with Balck/Green G10 and one hand shaped black canvas. They came via Eric at Mashed Cat who did the sheaths. I received my Battle Grade ASH this week as well...now I need to convince Garth or Jerry to make me an INFI ASH in .25 as that is a sweeeeeet size !!!! I will of course still be buried with a .32 Sabre Ground ASH.

My soon to be used .22 is black with black magnum handsmoothed micarta.

I don't usually like magnum scales, but on the ASH 22 with handsmoothed finish....it is pleasing. Very pleasing indeed.

She is still sitting on my desk...longing to be out in the wilderness displaying her virtues.
