any jester owners

Postby AllenETreat » Fri May 23, 2008 9:20 am

My SE lime green jester has been seeing pocket time with my CF SE cricket...

...anyone else own a jester ( or two, or three? )

I personally am attrached to little big knives. They -

* don't attract the cops

* don't frighten the sheep

* are usually lightweight

and in the case of :spyder: they're sharp !

What say the augurers?

i recently got 2 off of ebay, a pink one for my girlfriend and a stainless steel one for the storage case, i really like the blade on the jester more but because of the fact its a discontinued knife i use the stainless ladybug SE for the keychain.

No Jester here Allen, but I do carry a white LB 3 on my keychain. Before I got this little gem, I hadn't carried a "keychain" knife for quite some time, not since I had gifted my little LB 2 to a co-worker several years back. I had forgotten how handy it was to have a second, smaller knife on me at all times.

Twelve Jesters here, in different colors, handle materials, PE & SE; I prefer Jester's blade shape over Ladybug.
Congrats to your Jesters and I share your happyness!

I love my SS jester. Don't carry it everyday but it does see quite a bit of pocket time.
I also got my wife one as it is (so far) the only knife she will EDC as it clips to her purse along with her new Fenix E01 :D

I got them all, including the rare burgundy micarta, and blue and red FRN versions for the Japanese market. :D I carry mostly the Ladybu III now, as I like the tip better, but I can often be found with a Jester. THey make great watch pocket fillers that don't startle the NKPs.

Hey wouter, I was just going to mention you and your collection ;) . IIRC, Our knifebro zenheretic has quite the Jester Collection also. Maybe he'll chime in here soon and give us an update :cool: . I don't own a Jester :o ... I know, I know :eek: :p . Need to grab one to add to my SS collection ;) . Take Good Care All and Be Safe Always.

God Bless :)

Have twelve. Six black FRN PE and six SS PE. It's a great little knife. I think it complements the Ladybug fairly well. Recently showed both to a buddy of mine and he liked the Jester more than the Ladybug. I like both but the Jester a little more.

I've had a burgundy micarta one on my keyring for five years Allen. And then there's this little guy that occasionally finds its way into my watch pocket...

Like Peter and many others I prefer Jester’s blade shape to Ladybug's.

I carry SS PE Jester daily for more than a year. It’s good enough for all my daily chores.

I think it is almost as good looking as Jester with burgundy micarta I have on display at home.
And btw, this beautiful fob is a courtesy of my australian mate :)

Hi Allen,

My wife still carries the green Jester from you :) attached to her keys. For my part, I got too attached to my trusty old Ladybug to let her go :o
