Well, three packages of illuminating and cutting "tools" arrived at the house today, and I helped myself to the one from NGK as I knew it held my new Spin in it. (Thanks, Honey! I left you the bandaids--and the other Spin.) :smitten: The Spin is my first Wharncliffe blade on a folder, so I will have to wait and see for what tasks I grab it over the Cricket. It does indeed have a wicked-sharp edge, and I imagine its first test will be easy as a cigar cutter (it is Friday afternoon, after all). It is quite petite as well, so it will probably share my pocket with the Cricket for a while at least. I know many remove the clips to slim them down (they are the same thickness), but since warmer weather is here, I need the clips for skirts and dresses without pockets. It is still a little stiff upon opening, but I am sure that will disappear quite rapidly, and it locks with that satisfying click I've come to know and love. I find the shape, as with the Cricket, very aesthetically pleasing (my daughters call it "cute") and I love the spider on the blade parking in the web when you close it. Ergonomically, the Cricket is more comfortable in my hand at this point, but that may change. And so far, I love this knife. O0 Will provide an update after I use it a bit. Since my Cricket is pretty much the one I reach for, for most tasks, and the one that often pops up in comparison, I decided to photograph those two together and separately to give an idea of size. I have a medium-size hand for a female for reference.
