The Gentlebug

Postby dialex » Fri Jan 17, 2003 1:00 am

Tired of big folders? Here's a suggestion - the Gentlebug <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> My smallest folder so far. Fitted with an oversized hole (almost as big as a Delica's), compression lock, backspacers, G10 scales and steel of your choice <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> It may come even with a clip! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

How do you like it?

Looks nice, but I don't think the compression lock would be practical on it. It would be too hard to disengage, IMO, because of how small the release lever would need to be.

I find the best release of a compression lock to be holding the lock open, and wrist flicking...

don't think there's enough mass to do it on this model.

Wow!!!

Alex - I think all your ideas are winners!... But this one is Great!

And friendly enough that it would be a sell for anyone.

One wonders why we haven't seen a <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>/Dialex collabration as yet?

Aside from your knife design skills, your artistic talent just amazes me... Good work, once again!

Sort of like a G10 dragonfly.IMO it would be good with a lockback and PE.Nice design.

Wow! Nice. You two would make a great team!

Dialex = Knife design
Simona = Ad design

Perfect! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Nice. Very nice, as a matter of fact. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

I wouldn't worry about the lock type. On a knife this small, anything that holds the blade open will work.

Never underestimate the impossible.

Beautiful knife! Would love to have one with the same dimensions as a Standard, preferrably with a liner lock. Reminds me of a small Emerson Commander with a blade hole.

Is the hole big enough to put your finger through ala SPOT?
