    My normal length Olfa snap off blades fit. I got two extra packs of blades specifically for this knife just to have spares. My plan is to save all my Olfa blades when they get snapped off to the proper length and that way I'll have a continuous supply for this knife.

    That's great. I'm all about open standards. Those blades are so cheap, you could just break brand new ones haha.

    got a new little knife in today, the Spyderco Squarehead. I wanted to compare it with the Kadima. so i did:

    the squarehead comes to a sharper point since it doesn't have that thick front-swedge, which is nice. the kadima wins on length, ball bearing pivot, and not pinching my fingers between the spine and the backspacer on account of the hidden stop pin (is under the pivot collar).

    How do you like this? What's the size? I've seen these online and in books for years but wasn't sure the value matched the price. Do you recommend it?

    Well, for me it was perfect: I can't actually carve anything any more with one knife blade, so the addition of all of the other tools really helps me. This does allow me to carve anywhere.

    Improvement areas:

    1. The grip has these wood inserts. Maybe it's just me being older, but I would have preferred more comfortable grips.

    2. I would have also liked the ability to take the knife apart to switch out a damaged blade ... hasn't happened yet, but I'm concerned that I'll accidentally drop it and put a big chip in one of the tools.

    Size is 4.25" overall. Since I bought this one, Flexcut has come out with a "Pocket Jack". From what I can tell in online photos: fewer tools, more comfortable grip, and about half the price of this one. Shop around, because deals are out there! Hope that helps.

    I consider a 4" Slip Joint to be a gentleman's pocket knife. Large Trappers or Large Stockmen.

    For even smaller knives, I like the Mini Trappers, Barlow, or Canoe.

    That pretty much covers my entire appreciation for traditional non locking slip joints.

    A Canoe is pure class, cuts a steak very well, and doesn't scare little old ladies who see it.

    Still carrying these three as my go-to pocket knives. During the big move from Maryland to Texas, they were the real workhorses of my pocket knives since they were so small they were always in my pocket vs the Stanley Utility knife I had set down someplace. The Leatherman squirt was worth it's weight in gold. Almost. The Christy cut a heck of a lot of bubble wrap, shrink wrap, and packing tape.

    I recently was gifted this great little Boker 240 pen knife in rosewood and carbon steel by someone who knew of my love of the little knives. A tad larger than a Case peanut, has nice thin flat ground blades that get razor sharp.

    I've had this one for a long time, not sure where it came from or what it is. Looks homemade/handmade but don't know much else. It's the only shelf queen I own. A Vic rambler for comparison
