    I'm quite liking these tiny Spydero blades.

    Any other nice, non-locking tiny blades worth looking at? Are those Boker credit card size (is it Vox Ti?) worth a look?

    What he said.

    I've had a long running love with the Case peanut. Available in many nice trims, like chestnut jigged bone, stag, and the amber jigged bone and damascus that I've been carrying of the past year. Case uses the Devin Thomas damascus, and it's some very nice stuff. Cuts great, holds an edge very well. Case also has the mini trapper, tiny toothpick, Esenhower, and other very small pocket knives.

    Also, check out A.G. Russell's ultimate pen knife. Available in non lock and lock, with handle scales of different materials.

    The little guys are fun, ain't they?

    the SOG Micron is very simmilar, and for something a bit more old school, I've heard good things about the rough rider knives, who make a couple of small classic pen knife style blades.

    and of course, the small frame victorinox tools like the classic and the manager.

    course the best thing about a lot of the little knives is that they are pretty inexpensive, so you can pretty quickly build up a collection.

    I've got most of the ones mentioned so far, Case Peanut and tiny Toothpick, SOG Micron, all 3 sizes of the ti AGR pen knives, all three small Spydercos, and a couple of the smaller SAK's. I really like the Case Baby Butterbeans as well, might be pushing the definition of a tiny knife, but it is a smaller version of the 2-blade Canoe model. I really like the little Boker Keycoms as well, although their blade does lock.

    I have owned a couple small blades such as the Spyderco Lady Bug, Bug, and Honeybee. All great knives but I just did not like how my hands (even though they are only medium sized) struggled with the small blades. I ended up selling them and the only small knife I have is a Wenger Swiss Army Esquire, smaller then the Lady Bug but it also has a file, scissors, tweezers and a pick in it. The smallest knife I will use frequently is the Dragonfly, enough blade to get many jobs done but small and light enough to forget you are carrying it.

    I know you said non-locking, but someone has listed a bunch of old Spyderco Spyderkeys on eBay recently. Also known as "Hummingbirds," they're the smallest locking knife Spyderco has ever produced. Neat feature were they came in a variety of elaborate handle materials and edge configurations. They're really cool and very rare, so each one is fetching quite the pretty penny.

    It's a Rough Rider knife that I bought for laughs.

    Glad I could help. They're really cool knives and you NEVER see them. The ones on ebay right now must have been a collection.

    Here is a photo of two well known tiny blades next to one not so common. Top to bottom is a Vic classic, a Buck 565, and a Spyderco bug. The Buck 565 is titanium and non locking. I really like it. I think you can also find them rainbow anodized.[​IMG]

    These have a frame lock, don't they?
    The Boker Keycom is similar but smaller, and it also has a frame lock.

    The "42" variants aren't locking. They just have a ball detent to provide some closing resistance, but the frame doesn't lock the blade out.

    Video showing the difference

    I have a SOG micron, and it won't take a decent edge at all. I can shave hair with any other knife I own, but this seems to be a butter knife for hobbits...

    Looks cool though!
