G-10 handle is discontinued. If you look on Ebay, you will find at least one, if not more than one G-10 Harpy for auction on a regular basis. Good luck.

My only expertise on this subject is regularly rotating my selection of "gent's knives". Since I am an urban dweller (San Francisco) I only carry folders that have a blade less than 3 inches long. Without question the "liner-lock" is the most useful for me. Easy to open and fast to close. I have nev...

Between the Ladybug and the Cricket, I would recommend the Cricket. I think it performs better for small chores like opening plasting and small boxes. I bought my wife a CRKT (Columbia River Knife and Tool) Delilah. It is a very small, one hand knife which she keeps on her key ring. The only problem...

Original Worker - Question for Sal or others

I just received an old-style Worker (circa 1982) that I won on Ebay. There is no steel id stamped on the knife. Do you know what steel was being used at that time? Also, the clip side scale is much thicker than the other scale. I notice on the new style Worker that the scales are balanced. I like th...

I'll put in a vote for white (or ivory) micarta. One of the first best synthetic handle materials and still very underutilized in the industry. Also, the contrast with gray's of a damasteel would be very dramatic. My other suggestion would be for a lanyard liner tube such as on the Calypso Jr. Micar...

Benchmade Mini Stryker, plainedge. I have found the thumbdisk on this model to be as satisfying to use as the spyderhole. Klotzli KLM-2 (red/black carbon fiber). The only reason this isn't my everyday carry is that the thin wharncliff blade and 440C just don't work for medium to heavy tasks. But I t...

I am dredging up this thread since 4 months have passed and this is one that I am looking forward to using (Ti version). Any progress? After using the steel Dragonfly for 6 months now as my EDC, I still wish it was a liner lock for better one-hand close. I also second the previous reference to the C...

I have to agree with the comments about the name Calypso and the fact that it would be hard for people that are not infatuated with knives to try to sift the differences between the likes of the Calypso Jr., Standard, Rookie and Delica. I started off buying knives when I was six years old (Case yell...

Recently, I was having appetizers with a client from the US Army Corps of Engineers and an a consulting engineer (I am an architect). Since there was very poor service at this particular restaurant and we needed a knife to split the order, I pulled out my plain edge Dragonfly to do the cuttin and my...
