"Adahn, post: 2564322, member: 47047"]For a gentleman's knife it's safe enough, for tough jobs a fixed is the best choice anyways.[/quote] I try to avoid carrying a folding knife at all costs. As Ethan Becker once said " a folding knife is just a fixed blade that is already broken.....". My go to small knife has always been an ESEE IZULA worn as a neck knife 24/7/365. Had i known you wanted a "gentleman"s knife", I would have suggested a nice little Case pocket knife without a lock.
