The untimely demise of the lil matriarch was due mostly to a misunderstanding of its nature. Given its name and it’s connection to the original, I think a lot of folks assumed it was strictly a Self Defense knife. That is not a fair assessment though. The “lil” is a completely different knife than the Mattiarch and due to its smaller size and less aggressive tip it is FAR more suitable to normal tasks. I think it was completely overlooked as anything like an EDC knife and by the time we started to figure out how great the design was in that role it was already culled from the herd.
I feel confident that if the design were released again as a Salt, there are enough of us now that already “get it” to spread the word (and pics and videos) of how great this knife is as a daily user. I believe once the knife stops being pigeon holed as a pure SD knife then it will open up a whole new market. I suspect it will outsell the Tasman as it’s simply a much more useful design. In a pinch I could carry a lil Mattarch as my only knife while kayak fishing...I would never do that with the Tasman which is a far more one dimensional design.
