Folder with less than 3.5" blade, preferably slipjoint.
Well, then I guess I stand corrected
What do you consider not to be a candy ass knife ?
A stupid ass " tactical folder " that's so conspicuous that it fly's a red flag ?
Actually I've seen a ton of so called 'tactical knives' that look like a candy ass knife.
At a minimum one of these. A Patriot, or Secretary or Bantam.
For the more sophisticated an Executive.
Second knife from top
. . . and for the gentleman who wants to “geeter DONE !’
a Gayle Bradley One
First a Gentleman's knife is never openable one-handed. A gentleman is never in such a hurry as to need his knife quickly, and his valet is always at hand to hold whatever is necessary to allow both hands to be free.
Second, it would never be a knife that would be used for self-defense. A gentleman would never deign to use more force than good old-fashioned fisticuffs to settle a dispute... and even that would be considered a failing, in that his words could not defuse the situation.
Third, a gentleman's knife would never be a knife without a story. It's only after rescuing the Baroness' favorite hound from a thistle bush, or cutting free the diamond stickpin that became entangled in Her Grace's bonnet, that a dress knife or a pen knife becomes a Gentleman's knife.
Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, a Gentleman's knife is one that does not draw attention. It is always a Gentleman's actions, not his accoutrements, that define him. It should be subtle, understated, refined. A knife that draws attention is... uncouth.
It would be cool if my pocket pal had a clip point secondary blade, but since it is a classic pen knife pattern I don't mind too much.
Very nice. Not familiar with the model / maker. Who makes it?
Try putting either in your pocket. Enlightenment will quickly follow grasshopper.
ya... no. That thing is smaller than my thumbnail. lol And I'm gonna go out on a limb and guess that it isn't VG10 steel either.
Like this? I can see that making the group.
Can't argue with a drunk or a crazy person.
Not sure it works for me, but I see where you are coming from. Good looking knife.
Interesting choice. Brings back childhood memories.
Are you asking about the Pocket Pal ? Or the first ones I posted ?
In both cases Swiss Army Knife and or Wenger. Some body bought out Wenger recently didn't they ?
Very nice! Can't make out the markings. Is that from Lone Wolf?
I get what you're saying. Nice little knife.
Victorinox now owns wenger.
I'm a big Boker fan. Not sure how I missed this one. First time seeing it. Doesn't fit the category for me, but I like it and may pick one up in the near future.
Definitely a classic style.
