    Things have not gone my way for the last few weeks. I also have not carried my peanut for a few weeks. Partly by choice and partly due to travel. Coincidence? I even lost a knife....

    I'm glad to have the case peanut back in my pocket. I'm a fortunate fellow and truly have nothing to complain about. Using my peanut today for a few chores was enjoyable.

    It turns out I really like the half stops on a small knife. Anyone else? I have been looking at other brands of peanut and may not get them because of the lack of half stops.

    I find that half stops on small knives like peanuts are really convenient when closing the knife one-handed. With them I can push the blade with my index finger to the half stop position, then reposition the knife in my hand to finish closing the knife with my thumb. Takes a lot longer to describe than to do it. :D

    It has been a full week with the peanut as my only knife in the pocket. It has taken some getting used to as I used to be a tacticool knife kind of guy but my eyes have been opened since I got this nut. It has done everything I have asked of it without a problem. No more mall ninja knife fantasies for me. This knife, and other traditionals for that fact, are plenty of knife for me. And we don't have a mall where I live. The peanut is going to be in my pocket for a long time.Thanks to my kids for such a great Christmas gift.[emoji41]

    I also use the pen blade as much or more than the main clip.

    I like that the pin keeps its thickness all the way to the tip. Makes for a stout little blade for heavier work.

    I am guilty of light prying, but never with the clip. :p

    With a little care, the pen blade tip can be used to make a starter hole for a wood screw. Gently!

    I am finding the peanut is a very handy companion. I still like my trapper but im loving my peanut. I find the peanut does all my cutting as good as the trapper.

    The mighty Peanut... Is there anything (within reason) it can't do? :thumbup:

    I'm finding that even though I have carried smaller pen knives, there's just something beguiling about the compact but not-too-small peanut jackknife. It really has served well for every task I've asked of it.

    I have been carrying a Case peanut (I think I have seven or eight of them now) for about six months. I carry one every day no matter what, usually paired with a SAK and another larger slipjoint. My peanuts easily see more action than any other knife I own. Although, tonight I did use my SAK Sportsman coupled with an allen wrench to install a new seat on my bike. [emoji1338] I find numerous uses for my peanut every day. I've probably used the blue bone Case peanut in my pocket at the moment ten times today. So useful! This is why I often gift peanuts to people. [emoji4]

    [emoji106] im the same way. Every time I need to cut something I go to the peanut more and more. I used to think I needed a top notch steel of the month tacticool blade. Then I got a trapper and even dull it cuts better than those thick bladed modern knives. Should have known better as I was raised on traditionals. Guess I have came back to my knife roots. Now the peanut has a permanent spot in my pocket and gets called on without hesitation.
