    It is a China blade, that's why it was $30, but don't let it throw you. It's a great knife for the price.

    Weighs 4.1 oz. It's the only knife I've carried consistently though, so I can't tell you if it's too heavy or anything. However, I never notice it's with me, unless I'm reaching for something in my pocket.

    I love those applegate fairbairns. They're a little big for my hands, but its a sweet knife all around.

    I think I have the opposite of that.
    Except for Japanese blades I don't own anything yellow.

    well i've got all these and about a dozen more since that post.
    If life slows down a bit I'll get a round to updating.
    A couple kershaws, spydercos, a buck or two, a couple new skinners, and I think some others too.

    And thinking of it, those lower end gerbers might be chinese. I didn't pay for them...

    Honestly I've never even carried the nimravus. I'm doing a 7 day backpacking trip in a couple weeks that will be its first real use. I love its weight and feel, though its a thinner hilt than you'd expect, which I haven't yet decided whether I like or not.

    Its actually a scallion, not the chive. I like it for an EDC a lot, but as I mentioned the blade lock is a real shitty design that I've broken on 2 knives. At around $30 standard internet price I don't know that I expect too much more, but I feel like kershaw could fix the problem with little effort.

    So I've carried the Tenacious for like 3-4 weeks now, and I've come to the conclusion that it's too big. It's not too big for EDC outside of work, but at work, I just have too much shit in my pockets, and would prefer to not have as bulky of a knife to get around. I'm looking for something smaller now, like a Kershaw Scallion/Chive/Cryo or something.

    If one of you guys have a recommendation, let me hear it.
