    Hi. Anyone have any recommendations on a knife.. with a small blade with a full sized handle. Example, the original Spyderco Yojimbo. I am going to pick up a Hogue Microswitch with the sub 2" blade. Thanks.

    Folder or fixed blade?

    For a quality but affordable handmade knife, look at the Landi PSK.

    It's a fixed blade... I will have to do some thinking about a folder...

    Your best bet would be to buy the platform you like the best, and have the blade reground.

    The newly introduced Sog-Tac California Special may be up your alley.

    Emerson CQC-14

    This is my CQC-14 that was modified by ferrrk and has a Tom Krein regrind. With the regrind and extra thickness of the handle the blade/handle ration is even more skewed than the factory configuration.

    Spyderco's Paramilitary 3 may fit the bill.

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions! I am going thru them now. Not exactly what I am looking for.. since I am not really sure either. Guess was hoping for a modern day Yo1. I like the idea of having a knife reground though. Never had that done before, so not sure where to go. Will check out the people recommended in this thread. Thanks again!

    The spyderco lava may be what you are looking for.

    Emerson makes a model designed exactly for this. The Emerson cqc-14 stubby.

    Alternatively you could get someone to shorten a blade for you.
