I ticks all my knife-boxes so to speak: it’s got a perfect bladelength, lowered edge for ergonomic cutting, a slender design easy to carry, lefty-friendly wireclip, and a cool carbon fiber handle with a nice red accent, i.e. the spacer. I absolutely loved it. As a bonus I got to meet Alistair Phillips, who is a very knowledgeable and friendly guy.
Overall Length: 21 cm / 8.26 inches
Blade Length: 9 cm / 3.54 inches

Write your local politician and get involved with Knife Rights / AKTI. You could probably get that .04" off the tip with some time and a stone.MichaelScott wrote: ↑Mon Mar 26, 2018 6:29 pmI liked it immediately until I saw the blade length: 3.54". Now the all-knowing legislators in Colorado divined somehow (maybe they used the old Roman sacred chicken gut reading thing) that a knife carried concealed, like in your pocket or under your jacket, with a blade longer than 3.5" is considered a concealed weapon thereby illegal.
So, we are dealing with 1.016 mm of "excess" length. It would be fantastic if that blade were a wee bit shorter for us here in Colorado, and perhaps other jurisdictions as well. I'm trying to imagine how to take that off of the tip without screwing up the knife. Any ideas?

I, too, was totally ready to immediately buy a Phillips Redback until I got to the specs in Mr. Blonde's much anticipated Amsterdam Show post. I live in CA (Los Angeles) where the folder carry limit is 3". How disappointed am I? This Phillips has everything I look for in an EDC folder--sleek, slim, and sexy. Please, Sal, consider producing an exact downsized "Phillips Jr" for those of us who really want this knife but can't buy it--at least not for carry and use outside the house.
