This thread must have been communicating telepathically with me
-- 10 minutes ago I was thinking about starting a thread asking for more nishijin (black is my favorite). Then I thought about entering a shot of my nishijin R and Cricket in the calendar contest. Then I scrolled on down, saw this thread and Darby's shots of his black R and Cricket
They make a great dressy combo, and the Cricket is a snazzy money clip, but I too wish I'd picked up the Dragonfly. I carry my Super Blue D-fly every day in my shirt pocket, and if I got the nishijin model, I'd be tempted to transplant the SB blade into it.
The R is probably one of my top 5 knives. I love the ergos and wish Sal would include it in the next Seki sprint series. The choil and hand fit put it above the Endura for me.
