    Do it, I started looking at these when they were $13, finally got one last month at the best price I could find, $21.

    It is quite similar in appearance. It’s much smaller from reading the specs. I haven’t handled the benchmade proper but I do think I would like that knife as well.

    I agree on the size being too small. I had an alox minichamp that I at first thought was the end-all, be-all of little knives. It didn't take long to realize that it was too small to be useful to me. I gave it to my daughter and she loves it; so happy ending.

    I debated whether to create a thread or to post in this thread....

    So, in praise of the 'Peanut' pattern.

    Why you may ask?

    Well, most of my life is in a suburban or semi-urban environment. I rarely need to do anything that requires a large blade or most of the various options in a SAK , an Alox, or a Leatherman (or other multi-tool). Now anyone who sees any of my posts knows I do carry all of these and enjoy them.

    But I also have a nice little sub-collection of the 'Peanut' pattern. Although I think Case is usually associated with that term, many of the others who offer products in the traditional categories (e.g., Boker, Queen, Frost, Rough Rider, etc) also offer 'Peanut' knives.

    These are basically a mini-Barlow. Sort of. Not in terms of the bolsters, no way. But often with a primary clip point blade of say 2 1/8" or so; 1 5/8" pen blade or so. Closed length maybe 2 3/4" or so. Totally disappear in a pocket or even a coin pocket. Perfect for lightweight duty: opening envelopes, opening packages, cutting threads, etc. Doesn't matter if I'm dressed in a suit or jeans.

    Yes, like other traditional slip joints, available in a wide spectrum of scale materials, colors, textures, etc. If you're an obsessive collector, there is much to love here! ;)

    No, I'm not giving up my larger knives. But I do love the Peanut pattern!

    L'chaim!

    Anyone who has been carrying a knife for more than a few years should have a favorite traditional pattern. Mine is the trapper. I like the aesthetics of a sodbuster but for some reason have never owned one.

    Once avoided these as I thought it gimmicky... but then fell in love with the feel in hand. Only wish that they were available in the super steels.

    Oh, I like trappers as well; probably have as many of those as I do peanuts. Just that for the environment I'm in I've developed a real appreciation of the peanut. And it seemed to me they didn't get enough praise! :)

    L'chaim!

    @Tony Sal: I think you're right about it being made in China. I have one also albeit with different scales. But these are so small that I don't view them as hard use; so for just light use seems OK to me.

    L'chaim!

    Just did some updated pics of my Victorinox stash. They're like children, all fighting for 'equal-time'. :rolleyes:
