My two newest knives are a 0561, cutting edge of modern knife technology, and a Case/Bose Backpocket, a combination of modern and traditional. I didn't realize exactly how big the Backpocket was until I set it down beside the 0561 one evening. The funny thing is they are almost the same size.
I've been carrying them both since I got them. The 0561 is light weight for its size, silky smooth, razor sharp, and an all around great modern knife. The polished G10 handles of the Backpocket hooked me. It is impeccably finished and razor sharp. It is very slim and definitely rides well in a backpocket. A great combo of modern materials and traditional design.
Keep em' sharp!
What a blend of "New/Old". Very cool.
And I agree, the 561 is right on the edge of modern folders. Damn what a knife.
What Would Gibbs Do?!?!
Two fantastic knives. Funny timing, one of the guys I work with told me this morning that it reminded him of a modern Backpocket. I laughed out loud when I saw your post. Love both knives.
