I've been looking through the thread and haven't seen the one I was going to mention; more in a minute. I agree the Proper is pretty great looking from a user stand point. The knife I was going to mention is the Cold Steel . . . wait, wait, wait . . . come back ! Anyway the Cold Steel Lucky One. Carbon fiber handle, slip joint with a half stop (I could care less about that but some like it) and are you ready ? ! ? ! S35VN steel. Not my fave alloy but it gets big time support here, think Chris Reeve. So light you can carry it in a shirt pocket, has a fairly narrow blade like a smaller slip joint but the blade stock is thicker so is more robust for . . . I can't imagine what . . . but the blade is very stout if anything though it is not a wide blade so it cuts curves well enough. I have use for that. Even has finger grooves. I like it so much I have two; a plain edge and a serrated (long story I'll post a link if you care to see it).
