    Heroclip is expensive but top quality. Very good product, and looks amazing attached in any backpack with molle

    I have one of these. It is very cool for hanging things off the back of doors or shelving units where a normal caribiner thing can't cope. It has a rubber foot so it sticks hanging from 90degree ledges without slipping.

    The medium one is big, and the whole thing is quite bulky for anything smaller than say a Rush 12. I use it for a Tumi work bag where doors and shelves abound. It's great also to keep your bag off the ground in other scenarios such as workshops or toilet cubicles or in tight meeting rooms. It enables you to hang the bag above waist height so finding stuff in it is easy.

    The load capacity is not great (25kg) so you're not going to scale the Eiger with it.

    PS. When you get one of these people will want to play with it as it is not immediately obvious how it folds...

    I just got some Fire Red and Ice blue replacement Oakley polarised lenses for my Flak Draft sunglasses. Made by Walleva. As good as the original lenses and a quarter the price.

    I've been looking for a CRKT Journeyer for a while now but have been unsuccessful. I'm in the UK, so I have to abide by some dumb laws. I only ever carry sub 3" slipjoint knives unless I need a fixed blade...obviously. law abiding citizen and all that nonsense.
    I've ordered a HX Outdoor copy (Ba****rd Halibut) of the Journeyer for £16. If it works for me, I may get the real thing. I'm not keen on fakes, but the reviews on this are ok. My Sanrenmu and Enlan knives have always been decent.

    Two blades are on their way from BHQ:

    Mercator "Otter" with polished copper handle and 3.5" satin finish SS blade:

    Real Steel G5 Metamorph Mk II Front Flipper; Navy Blue (?) aluminum handle and 3.5" Satin finish 14C28N Drop Point blade:

    Really looking forward to receiving these! I already have a couple of the Otter knives and love them -- but this will be my first knife with a copper handle. The Real Steel will be my first 'front flipper' -- looking forward to seeing how it handles and deploys.

    L'chaim!

    Let us know how you get on with front flippers. I saw the metamorph knife and it appeared too long for me.

    I have a couple of Real Steel Forager fixed blades and I really like the brand: especially the colourful g3 pukko which will probably be a new acquisiti9n soon based on your prompt.

    The only front flipper I have is a Maserin 392 small carbon fibre scale knife that has the razor style tab to open. It’s an interesting physical thumb sensation to open it, but not one to attempt quickly in company....

    I have had one of those mercators on my list for some time now. Sweet looking, old school knife. I might need to just take the plunge and order it one of these days.

    Never heard of them before but I thank you!

    It's not failure if you learn something from it

    I got this from Ebay for $77. Used, but like new. I’ve wanted one for a long time.

    Both knives have arrived.

    The copper handled Otter is a beauty. It is now riding in my pocket organizer/sheath together with its black handled cousin.

    The Metamorph is also a beauty. Light weight; blade is wonderfully sharp and action is smooth but there is a bit of an issue. Issue is I have yet to get it to fully deploy just with my thumb and no wrist action. The thumb action for the front flipper is something I'm not yet used to.

    I've gone onto YouTube and looked at reviews by a number of folks who review blades. A few 'seem' to get full deployment either just with their thumb or with a slight wrist flick in addition. Several reviewers have noted the need to add in the wrist flick and complained. Consensus seems to be the detent is not tuned well enough to enable full deployment just using the thumb for many folks. There have also been observations by some that the flipper tab maybe is just a bit too short to give enough leverage for effective single action deployment --meaning without using the wrist.

    I'm not sorry to have bought this knife; it is a beauty and seems very slicy as well as light weight and takes up very little pocket real estate. Just wish the action was a bit better.

    L'chaim!
