  My purpose is to find a smoother clip with less tension than the standard Spyderco, which to me is built like a battleship when what I want is more like a Ski Nautique. The other features are extras, although I think the less visible to John Q Public the better. For walking the dog the old Gen 1 Delica will continue to be my favorite. IIRC it weighed out at about 1.7 oz, but could use a resharpening. I'll be *very* happy if a NIP plain edge comes my way. 
This deep-carry clip will be for the Para Military.    http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/1177897-Deep-carry-low-ride-titanium-clips-for-Spyderco-Delica-PM2-Manix-etc-Run-3
Ordered yesterday a deep-carry ti clip from Casey Lynch. This is the longer version, which should have lighter tension. 
I waffled on choosing the knife arts carbon Sebenza--very cool. The regular version otoh was a more conservative choice for a first, as I can't say for sure I won't end up with a Large as well.Nice blurple. Mine is in queue for regrinding, maybe two weeks out.Thinking real hard on ordering a Goddard Lightweight, the main issue being I might like it better than the Para Military.
   Thanks, warubozu. This is probably the most expensive knife I've owned, and that I've bought for EDC as well. From a utility POV it might be a little extravagant, but the higher quality standards is imo pretty gratifying. This is a user knife for sure. I'm going to have to make it to the next local knife show.
Been under the weather since the weekend, otherwise I would have carried this small Sebenza already, which came in Monday. Need to remove the lanyard first, which I personally find *very* irritating. The action seems a bit draggy, so I'll hone the washers a bit to smooth it out.   Really love the quality on the small Sebenza, the form factor, blade profile, and sand blasted finish. I'm not justifying the money spent, as I'm pretty ruthless about sending down the road...
  Great testimony on the 765 right there. Perfect size too, like a medium Sebenza. 
  Nice additions. I've always wanted a Benchmade, and have been looking at a Mini-Griptilian.  Despite my negative comments on the Spyderco Military a couple pages back, I just ordered the green Knifeworks sprint in CTS-204P. I should be able to warm up to it...
   With the blade tip practically scraping the inside of the scales, I unfortunately decided to send it back. Not before determining how much I like the form factor, function, and weight.  It was a no-brainer to exchange for, or order the LW Dark Blue S110V version, but I didn't. I get gun shy after going through the return/refund drill which I strongly despise.
