    Well, with another change in security groups at work, I’m switching my EDC knife setup again. My Benchmade Griptillian is “too large” still but my waved Delica and SAK Tinkerer are okay now. Might switch back to the Super Tinkerer since it has scissors but I haven’t decided yet.

    Is the small one a 'bug-out'?

    Which one is that? Looks like a 0770CF, but my Elmax‘s blade looked way less defined.

    Mid-week change:
    • LF pocket, on Pangea Ti Pickpocket dangler: LM Squirt PS4
    • Coin pocket: Spyderco Ladybug Salt; Lockback with yellow FRN handle; 1 7/8" H-1 leaf-shaped blade, SE grind
    • Belt sheath at 9 o'clock: LM Blast. Also have a 4" Ti CountyCom 'widgy bar' and a PocketWrench II in the sheath. The PocketWrench is for anchoring the blind nut if present whilst I'd be turning the nut or screw head on the other side...
    • RF pocket on a clip: Spyderco Pingo; orange FRN handle; slip-joint; N690Co modified sheep's foot blade ~2.35".
    For those not familiar with the Pingo, this from the Spyderco website (note the Pingo was recently discontinued!):

    "A collaborative effort of Danish knifemakers Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes, the Pingo was specifically designed to conform to the knife laws of Denmark, which prohibit both lock-blade folding knives and all forms of one-hand-opening knives.

    The heart of the Pingo is its distinctive sheepfoot blade, which is ground from Böhler-Uddeholm’s premium N690Co stainless steel. The blade is designed to meet Danish legal length limits while still providing a very functional and versatile cutting tool. Its Trademark Round Hole clearly identifies it as a Spyderco knife and provides a handy purchase for two-handed opening, but the hole is purposely small to prevent one-handed blade-opening methods. Similarly, its stout notched-joint mechanism is powered by a strong spring that helps hold the blade securely in the open and closed positions, supporting its safe use as a cutting tool while precluding one-handed opening.

    The Pingo’s handle is comprised of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a sturdy stainless steel back spacer. The scales feature a molded checkered texturing that ensures a secure grip without being too abrasive. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip provides both left and right-side tip-up carry, keeping the knife accessible for immediate use while blending unobtrusively with virtually any color of clothing.

    Although designed to meet the unique needs of the Danish knife community, the Pingo’s versatile design and socially friendly demeanor make it a perfect choice for knife users everywhere. It not only transcends the limits of the traditional non-locking pocketknife, but also redefines Spyderco’s own definition of a SLIPIT because of its purposeful two-hand-opening design."

    The Pingo was one of the few Spyderco knives not made in China, Taiwan, Japan, or the US. It was made in Maniago, Italy. I'd also like to point out that there are other knives made by Spyderco to meet stringent knife laws. These include the Spy-DK (which uses the same steel as the Pingo and was also designed to meet Danish requirements), the Urban, the PITS, the UK Penknife, the Squeak, and the Roadie.

    L'chaim!

    Weird. Mine was, maybe, quite heavily washed and it looked like it was molded rather than ground. That was the reason I sold it. The 0450 has defined machining to it. But that’s too small.

    Would you mind snapping a closeup of the blade against the light? I’m curious if mine was just botched.

    Was brave, and left my Climber at home to carry this knife I bought back in 1979-1980. To me, this is such a beguiling little piece. It's certainly telling of that post-Buck 110 period. But, it's small, light, all stainless, Saber ground, drop point, solid, thick liners, and no scales.

    I think it's got an identity crisis, and I haven't seen many knives like it.

    Advantages:
    Thick blade
    Thin, very pocketable profile like a douk douk, but heavy duty.
    Locking

    Disadvantages:
    Handle is curved enough to cause lateral torsion tendencies when bearing down for a draw cut.
    Blade thickness keeps this from being a great slicer, but it is strong.
    Blade is really difficult (for me) to get a sharpened well.

    Are Any of you familiar with this knife? I know it didn't cost much when new, but heard Jet-Aer was a decent brand back then. What's interesting about this knife is that I bought two that day; one for me, and one for my grandfather who died years ago. I inherited his knife and now have both.

    May I ask where this was taken? The landscape looks vaguely Norwegian.

    I'm carrying my favorites today, minus the pen. Left that at home since I have a dozen pens on my desk at work.
