    Do you know what model that far left citizen is? I like it a lot. Hard to beat an eco-drive for a daily beater and that case looks like it's up for some abuse.

    Not quite into two digits of the new year and my 'plan' has failed miserably ;) but, it also succeeded in providing a knife that I tend to reach for constantly and from that set of knives the Mini Freek stands out among the crowd.

    For a few reasons;
    Size, handy blade shape and length as well as ground down fairly thin for excellent cutting.
    Texture, the contrasting texture of the scales provide a secure grip in use, much appreciated!
    Clip, well, I did change the clip out for one that is used on the Bugout, and that works great.

    Most of the set have moved on to new homes, a few were traded and I am waiting their arrival, they are more 'Gents' knives but good cutters too.

    So, for now, the Mini Freek rules the roost !

    I must be a little different. I edc the same three knives for years at a time generally except for a day or two when I'll try something different and find I'm more comfortable with my old knife load. The way I live and the way I've been trained, is to use the same known items and keep them in the same place for easy access. SAK huntsman in belt case on right hip. Buck 303 left front pocket. SAK money clip left front pocket. The buck is newest as I let the Wenger patriot go in the box. Testing the Buck. I'll probably go back to the Wenger. I've got enough knives to satisfy myself but the every day use one's I like to keep the same.

    That makes sense, I've had more knives than I can remember pass through my hands, some I have bought over and over again, I keep forgetting why I parted with it and get it again only to find that I was right and sell it off, only to get it a few years down the road again. But, I am working on that scenario, well, not real hard, but I am making strides in the right direction ;)

    I don't make new years resolutions but I'm still dragging around the same three knives. Huntsman, Wenger patriot, SAK money clip.

    6 months, give or take, does change things ;)

    Only the Manly folder remains in the box of choices, a few new ones have come and gone since as well, but for the current situation I carry the following;

    On my person;
    Right front pocket clipped is the WE Practic in M390 and it pretty well situated there, good cutter too.
    Watch pocket is a new SAK Cadet silver
    Right front pocket bottom, SAK Pioneer and Executive

    in my bag for work
    Manly Peak
    SAK Tool as well as a few others in the bag as well
    Carothers EDC

    So I have reduced the choices to one...the Practic and for now that seems to be handiest
    I have a like new Cold Steel AD10 that I have been trying to part with but with the ups and downs of the price on that, it's not an easy sell...
