    Thanks for the redirect. :thumb

    As for mod intervention, it came "this" close. Sometimes posters need to know the players a little better, it keeps them from stepping on their dick so much. The old "read more, post less" thing and all.

    Fritz, you and Smithy work in two different worlds, but you didn't see that. You only saw what Smithy does from your own perspective. Not everyone works the way you do. Doesn't make them wrong, just different.

    Well, having lost both my Benchmade auto and my first Microtech LUDT; I found a second LUDT to replace the one lost. I have two dozen other knives I could lose and not bat an eye. That I lost my two favorites causes me rash like you wouldn't believe. :cry

    Anyway, during my search for the replacement LUDT (and it wasn't easy), I ran across the Microtech Scarab. Do you have any opinions on it?

    I thought it was me that was being accused of being a psychophant? Now everyone is claiming the glory.

    This looks like a great edc. What are the dimensions? I like a small, pocket fixed blade sometimes, but most of the ones I've tried have had lots of belly but not a fine enough point.

    Anyone got a good recommendation on a budget ($25-$35) mid length (sub-bowie) fixed blade? Seems to be the one thing missing in my kit.

    I've got big hands, so I'm not sure the truncated handle will work for me. Otherwise a contender.
