Every place that sells knives needs pictures in hand and in pocket! Cool design but too small.

I was intrigued and immediately started reading reviews. After that it was easy to make up my mind not to order this. I currently have a small buck on my keyring which replace a small Spyderco that was really getting beat up. I prefer blades between 3-4". I have a few ridiculously large folders from Cold Steel but they don't get carried.

I really liked the look of the knife ... until I realized the blade was only 2.1". If the blade had been 3-3.5", I would have been tempted, but $99 for a ~ May 15th shipping is no great deal, especially when ebay has lots of the options at $111.

Yes, with that small size and the shape of that handle, I can't imagine being able to hold on to the thing.

Looked like a steal until I saw the size -- 5 inches at full open.

I'm just looking at all the concave surfaces. Convex ones are easier to sand with a band sander or even flat sandpaper and care. Concave stuff, for me, is a lot harder to polish evenly. I don't think I'd want to try and polish that surface. Even if you're using a benchtop buffing wheel it just seems like it'd have uneven wear. Why, does it turn out that it's actually crazy easy somehow? :)

Oh, well, not crazy easy lol The right diameter flapper wheel on a dremel might be a possibility, if you're looking for power tool option. But would be difficult to do evenly, as you said. To do by hand I would try to find something to wrap sandpaper around. If you can't match the diameter perfectly, go slightly undersized and softer. Cork works well. Firm, but not hard. Just enough give that it will spread the pressure a bit. Unlike a hard dowel rod that would only sand right in the apex of the curve Orrrrrr.....sandblasting/tumbling, then buffing? P. S. Or, if you just want a shiny surface, and don't care if there are bumps in it from the milling, look into "rust erasers". They won't be tough enough to sand siren the mill marks, but they will clean up the surfaces. Use them to follow the "grain" of the mill marks, working your way up through a few grits, then final polish with a paste polish on a soft sponge that can get down into the grooves.

Looking forward to all of the 1 and 2 star reviews from people who don't read the spec sheet and complain about how small it is.

These small knife offerings Boker+/Countrycomm Albatross, Rike Hummingbird, and now this one. I've started looking at the Spyderco models instead: Dragonfly, Manbug, Ladybug, Grasshopper, etc. as alternatives.

Love my Dragonfly! So light it disappears but still a usable size.. It's always in my pocket at home.

Just watched a couple of reviews. Wow, this thing is tiny. A pity it wasn't made in a 3" to 3.5" blade size, would have been an easier decision to pull the trigger on this one. I'm still left wondering if I can even grip this knife effectively with such a small handle.
