    Does anyone here own/carry one of the Spyderco Jesters? What are your thoughts? I'm giving serious thought to purchasing one of these, but would like to make sure they're worth it before I drop the money they're going for these days.

    the jester has jimping at the tip of the blade which can be used with your index finger to make more precise cuts.

    also the jester had a run in burgandy micarta which is very attractive.

    They're out there, Defuse kit. You just gotta look hard! :) Banana boy, does the jimping help blade control? How does the blade shape work out? Thanks for the replies!

    I have used one and I prefer it to the Lady Bug. The blade shape is nicer, the jimping is in the right place, and the micarta one is sweet looking. The one I handled was green frn. I still prefer the Dragonfly though and the new Dragonfly looks even better. You should be able find a Jester for around $40. I have been watching them for some time on eBay and that is around the average closing price.

    I would choose the Ladybug anyday.

    The new one has VG10 steel and a bigger thumb hole, which makes it easier to open the knife.
