They look really useful for popping open packages, slicing tape on boxes etc. It's just that when I have a folder clipped to my pocket I can usually have it out and be done cutting whatever needs cut before I fish one out from inside my pocket and orient it the right way to open it etc.Bradley wrote:Vivi wrote:hawkbill ladybug.
Love h1, love hawkbills, and it would pair well with the large folders I carry.
But I never use the blade on my pocket multitools, which leads me to believe the LB woyld suffer a similar fate and live in my knife drawer.
I use my ladybug hawk allllll the time. Probably more than any other knife in total, because the others get rotated and the ladybug is always there, ready to work.
I ran into the same problem with my Swiss Army Knives and Spin. I love that little knife, the FFG wharncliffe blade is ideal for a two finger knife IMO. Gets wicked sharp and is great for opening mail, small packages etc. But I lost the clip and never got around to ordering another.
I've pretty much settled on carrying my modified Tasman Salt as my small knife. It's small and light enough that I don't notice it, and just as convenient as my big knives to deploy and use.
