I like blade "hole" opening designs, a lot. I'm not a huge flipper guy, but I also don't have a lot of time with them and if I have multiple options on one knife, so much the better. I also really, really like wire clips. Not a deal breaker, but something I do take strong note of. Steel type isn't a big deal to me. I have a strong bias for stainless but I don't get overly worked up about VG10 vs. S90V, etc. I actually lean toward the so-called "softer" steels just for edge maintenance reasons and toughness is much more important to me than edge retention. But again, not a huge issue. I like slicers and am a thin blade kinda guy. But, again, that is not wholly exclusive. I don't hard use my knives too much any more and generally attack rogue apples, box insurgents, and the like. The Spyderco Manix 2 LW and Dragonfly 2 are probably my most used knives the last couple years. And I tend to be a function over form guy. So, with that in mind I'm very interested in the Giant Mouse Nimbus, the Fox Vox Core and the Manly Peak. Admittedly, there are things about each that violate things I just said, but for various reasons, I'm digging these three offerings. The Vox Core might be too thick for me to ignore but there's also a lot to like there. I freaking love the 110-esque style of the Manly Peak but man that Nimbus is talking to me pretty hard as well. Or maybe there's something I haven't considered. I'm not going over $200. So, I just thought it might make for some fun conversation and I can learn and gleam things from all of your thoughts and experiences. I know these type threads are highly subjective so I'm just looking to see what thoughts it sparks. Thanks in advance.
