    I have fairly small hands and I can just barely get 4 fingers completely on the handle. However, given the lack of guard and the "all edge" blade, I'd opt for a 3 finger grip with my pinky curled behind the butt if I was going to use it.

    Its such a classy knife. I really really like it. I wish spyderco would make more small knives built as well as the nilakka and techno. I would suggest a mini Gayle Bradley 1 or a mini Advocate without bearings.

    I really, REALLY wanted one of these, I hope the demand earns it additional runs or even a permanent (or semi-permanent) spot

    Sal, is that in the ballpark for future flash batch runs as well?

    I absolutely love mine. Class for days! Tucked spydie hole, beautiful shape open and closed. The ratio of blade thickness to overall thickness is wacky but on something this small I don't even mind. It's just fun.

    Not since the Burgundy, ZDP-189 Caly Jr have I been so drawn and attracted to one of Spyderco's smaller blades like I am with this Lil Nilakka. It's got some really interesting ergonomics that I'm really being drawn to. There are times even though they are very few times when I end up carrying a smaller folder>> I've always loved my Dodo and ZDP Caly Jr but I most definitely want to score one of these. Not to mention it is an absolutely gorgeous design.
