Since losing my EDC (every day carry) pocket knife, the Ken Onion designed Kershaw Leek in stainless steel, I’ve been feeling kind of naked. I thought about getting another Leek since that knife is so damn awesome, but figured I would take this opportunity to try something new. I did some research and came across this beauty, the Cricket by Spyderco.
What initially drew me to this was the shape of the blade. It looks like a stubby hawk beak or claw. Also, it is really thin, which makes carrying it pretty comfortable. The only real drawback is that it is a pretty small knife, which I guess is okay. Opening it with one hand will take some practice, but I think I can do it.
