Hi guys! Long time lurker first time poster. I'm 12 and I've been edc'ing my Vic tourist since I got it in 09 and have found countless uses for it. I'm homeschooled so I don't have to worry about retarded zero tolerance laws. I've been looking at the zdp-189 version of the Delica 4 but it's way, way, way out of budget. This knife would probably be purchased by my dad for my birthday/christmas online (specifically amazon) or I would drag said father into a knife shop and buy it myself. The tourist has met all of my knife needs admirably but has an annoying tendency to not slice apples fully across the apple, if that makes sense. I've been looking at the douk-douk, but the kind that will be in stock in 3 months and is available on amazon is too big, even though it's quite thin. Chinese "goodies" are pretty much out of the question because of long shipping times and QC issues. Oh and it has to be less than 3/8s of an inch thin. And tacticool knives would scare my mom. Backlocks no, framelocks ideal, linerlocks no. The better the Fit&Finish the better! Also just to avoid repetetive posts: SRN and Enlan and Ganzo knives are Chinese. The Dragonfly 2 is too expensive and too small. The Ladybug is too small. The Kershaw Scallion is too small and it's assisted opening. The Leek has a blade shape that I don't like, it's too expensive, and it's assisted opening. Sodbusters are too thick. The Higo-no-kami would be ok but the little protruding tang could cause issues. (backup option) The Spydie Persistence/Ambitious/Tenacious/Byrd Knives are either too big, too tacticool, or both. Slipjoints are usually too thick, otherwise they are too expensive. Peasant knives are too wide; wouldn't fit in tiny women's pant's pockets. MT's are too heavy! I hope there are knives other than those that work!! Sorry for the post length- I can be long winded a times.
