    Get something small that you will carry.

    I'd say Spyderco Delica, Case Canoe.

    I don't like SOG folders and I have a hard time recommending Kershaw though may folks love both of them.

    I agree with you on Kershaw though. I don't feel they are on par with Spyderco or Benchmade. I really don't like assisted knives of any flavor.

    The thumbstuds on the Umnumzaan are ok because they are close to the handle and unobtrusive. I am also of that clan of heathens on axis knives, I close them with the same motion in reverse.

    I wish they weren't smooth, makes it harder to open with wet hands.
