Anyone else find this incredibly neat?

Too bad they're ~ $200, illegal to import, illegal to own, and illegal to carry in Texas.
From an outsiders perspective it's a bit funny, that this tiny knife is illegal, but firearms are "no problemo"

You must be new to US laws.

Scary is bad. Therefore, all scary things must be banned.

The ban on switchblades happened largely due to their prominent part in West Side Story, Rebel Without a Cause and movies at the time. The news media played up gang knife violence with switchblades, whipped the public up into a furor, and poof, bye bye switchblades.

Fast forward a couple of decades, and The Outsiders featured balisongs. Same media song and dance. They got patchwork banned, with some locales lumping them with switchblades, some locales lumped them with gravity knives, and some banned them by name.

Same for nunchucks and other "Eastern" weapons like "ninja" stars with the popularization of martial arts films.

Yet good ole 5.5" fixed blades are perfectly fine for carry in Texas. Go figure.

I wonder why Chris_Himself has a knife juxtaposed around his expensive ALO cable--seem like there could be trouble.

Skeletool CX

Not out yet, but looks like it'll make for a great multitool with a usable knife.

I have a Kershaw Leek and a CRKT M16-10KZ so far, but I am always looking to buy some nice knives if the price is right.

I'm still very shallow (feet-deep, maybe? ) into the knife-fi world, but so far I've managed to pick up the Boker Wharcom and Benchmade Griptilian Mini (Doug Ritter edition) for daily carry.

Fairly annoyed at the knife hobby right now. Picked up three knives recently, a Spyderco Waved Endura, a Benchmade Mini-Dejavoo and a Kershaw JYD2 SG2/Ti.

The latter two are going straight back to the factory. The Benchmade's linerlock doesn't lock and the Kershaw's grind is noticeably unsymmetrical and has a pronounced "C" curve on one side.

The Endura is a pretty nice knife, but not a fan of the wave after using it for a couple of weeks. I've found it to be unreliable when wearing a jacket, not significantly quicker into action due to the initial backward motion and need for a significant grip reposition, and hell on pocket seams. My hands aren't large enough to use it as a true one hand knife either. Closing the knife is a chore as it's difficult to depress the locking bar and fold the blade down without the use of two hands.

I never understood the wave deal. I like Benchmade's Axis locks for their one handed opening and closing, but I prefer Spydercos now, because of their use of good steels.

I just got this Kershaw for Christmas. I'm not very deep into the knife hobby at all, but it's a nice solid little knife to have.
