    Hi Guys - this is my first post/review and I'd like to show you one of Andy's new designs - the Mosquito! Mine is with lacewood over natural liners with lime pinstripes, SFT convex on 1/8" A2. The overall length is 4 3/4" with a 2" blade. This knife is wicked sharp and although small, it fits in my hand comfortably with a 3 finger grip (my hand is small, I wear a men's size small in gloves).

    Here's a shot of it where you can see the handle shape better:

    Since this is a new model and none of the familiar sheath makers had a pattern for it, I went with Jason at Diomedes to create a sheath for it! I sent him my mosquito and we collectively came up with a design to my liking. I wanted something that would fit in my pocket, have a pocket clip, and that was sturdy enough so that the blade would not cut into the leather as the blade has a bit of an upsweep. Jason is a wonderful person to work with and completely exceeded my expectations!

    And a close-up of the handle inside the sheath - the lacewood is just simply gorgeous:

    I am super happy with the Mosquito! It is a perfect little EDC sized knife that is comfortable in hand and great for daily tasks. The sheath is amazing and I would highly recommend Jason at Diomedes.

    Thanks for looking and I hope this has been helpful for anyone on the fence about this super little knife!
