    How come there is smoke rising from my wallet??
    Uh oh!! Was hoping you were going to say it was a hot mess!!! At least tell me there is blade play in every direction??
    Aaaaah.....can't fight it!
    Thanks Liam!! I'll tell you, my 761 is the smoothest knife I have! It flies open with the slightest pressure! Just an amazing build! I knew I couldn't resist this one!
    Congrats, enjoy it and thanks again brother.

    That's the first comparison pic I've seen of the mini, looks great!

    Second to the 531 Golds, the 761 was one of sharpest out-of-the-box BM I've ever received.. I prefer the 761, but in seeing your pic, you couldn't go wrong with either :thumbup:

    Gotta love that belly :love-struck:

    This one showed up yesterday and I can't get enough of it! Have had my 581 for a year, love it, and when I saw this one pop up on the Exchange for a great price I had to check it out. Not really fond of small blades, but when I got this one in hand it changed my mind!
    What a great little knife with an incredible build!! Pretty decent blade steel also!!

    lol right!?

    Maintenance is super easy with a strop.. Just a few drags at the right angle with a good polish compound and your back to a mirror shine! I know there are other knife-specific polish compounds, but Flitz works just as well.
