    Inexpensive OKAPI folder. Made in S. Africa. Nifty carbon steel bladed knife. Supposedly, it is used extensively over there for farmwork, dressing game and self defense. It really is an incredibly well made knife - one pulls the ring to close the blade...The ratcheting lock is rock solid. I'm sure the carbon blade could take a wicked sharp edge. I use mine to cut fruit while on the road at work. I haven't dressed any game with it, yet. ;)

    Lately I've only carried either a Leatherman Wave or a Victorinox Climber. They cover all I need from knife/multi tool, and they don't scare people off if I need to use them in public - like a big black folder may do.

    What else indeed? My Cryo fills that niche but lightness isn't one of it's charms!

    Oooh, a ToughBook! I haven't seen one of these in quite a while. Do they still make them?

    As far as I know the Neckers are only available in 12C27. I got mine directly from Brisa.

    All the ones I see now are marked "X55", for X55CrMo14. Brisa's web page still says 12C27 in the description, but the two knives in the main heading are marked X55.......

    X55 & 12C27 are close in composition, I was just curious.
