I've had a Lil' Temperance for a couple of years now and I still love it.
I bounce back and forth between the Millie and my Lil' Temperance Leaf. I like the blade shape so much, I ended up buying the Lum Chinese Folder (which is longer than the Temperance).
I live in Pennsylvania, but I work in New Jersey. When I'm going to be in the Garden state, I carry the Lil' Temperance as it conforms to that state's possession laws (3"<img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>.
One way or the other, you pay for your tools!
