    Criteria:

    1) Must be locking (no slip joints, etc.)
    2) Must be a folder (no fixed blades)
    3) Cannot be Spyderco (I know about the Chicago. Wanting other suggestions)
    4) G-10 scales, FRN or similar material

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

    Sanrenmu GR5 605. 8Cr13Mov 1.71" blade, linerlock, G10 handles.

    I don't know if it's the best, but it fits the requirements.

    To quote the cinematic masterpiece, Deuce Bigelow - European Gigolo, "Fine, I'll take my three inches elsewhere!" ;)

    Probably not what you're looking for but I actually love the little Buck Metros. They're cheap, totally non-scary and fun to play with.

    The nice thing is you can get the budget Boker or the Fancy Curtiss!

    I've never sampled anything Al Mar. Seems a little pricey though for AUS8 steel. :unsure: I do like stout blades though... even in a small knife.

    Cold Steel Micro Recon 1 for size, but the Cold Steel Mini Tuff Lite for just the BEST knife with a 2 inch blade. You can get an amazing amount of grip on it, the blade shape just puts a zipper on EVERYTHING in the world, and CS put their Triad lock on that mini monster. Amazing.

    Why no Spyderco? The Manbug G10 is a great little knife.

    Spyderco makes some great small blades. The Ladybug 3 is by far my favorite little blade, especially with all the steel options.

    Leaning towards the Cold Steel just because I think the Al Mar is pretty pricey for AUS8 steel and pinned construction. Any other suggestions?

    The Al Mar SLB is plenty tough, and a very high build quality. I wouldn't fret too much about the AUS-8, it does a nice job.
