Guyon Guyon Let us know how you get on with your choice. I'm certain you'll be pleased & would've suggested it too but felt you wanted a small handle. But, you get TWO blades on the one spring and that's always appealing :thumbsup: I'm glad GEC refrained from opting for Longpulls on the Northfields, feel they look awkward on a Wharncliffe.

Here are mine, the Camel Bone is the User and the Jigged Bone & Wood are my 'Enablers' ;) They enable me to appreciate beauty and to seek more of the same :D

This one will do just fine.

Looks like you got a really nice example! I am also a big fan of small wharncliffes - I had the same knife (a 62 in red bone) in my pocket today, and a mini copperhead in the pocket all of last week. Variety is the spice of life! Buy both if you can - they are both fantastic knives.

Here are some of my wharnies... all except one are Case.. the one on the far left is the Queen version of the little Case copperhead right beside it.
I didn't include any of my GEC 62 Easy Pocket, or Pocket Carvers.
The big copperhead at the top has the prettiest blue jigged bone covers I've ever seen.
The 3 SS swayback jacks (limited editions) are easily the equal of any GEC for fit and finish... just beautiful knives. The other swayback jack is a CV version that I bought used, knowing it had a touch of main blade wobble. It's not bad enough to bother me. The single blade swayback gent is very nicely made, as well. I think Case has those figured out....
The persimmon bone HD knife is a single blade mini trapper... a gift from my wife.

I was going to suggest the Case (or Rough Ryder) tear drop, but they're roughly 3 9/16 inch closed.
