    Thanks bro. Basic checklist:

    No blade play.
    On center.
    Lock release with no stick/hesitation.
    Blade falls with lock held open.

    User welcome. Good stainless steel other than what I already have. Scales aren’t important. I plan to change em.

    The current folder situation. I've decided these are the keepers and I'm content with this lineup.*

    We both seem to be very minimalistic as compared to many who have gotten lost down the rabbit hole (you’re just fine chip, what rabbit hole? LOL).

    For me as far as folders go: Shiro and Spyderco but only a handful at most. Fixed blade, well, only and only CPK but admittedly more than a handful. I admit that I may have a slight issue going on here :D

    In my defense, almost every single one of those has something unique about it...weird locks, hidden mechanisms, etc. :p;)
