A little while ago i had a GSO2.7 and sold it. I didnt feel it did anything my Hindere XM18 could do and it was not as "handy" in the pocket. Well after some thought i am seeing the value in a smaller fixed blade. I have used my xm18 on trout a fee times. Just to gut them at the streem side. The folder can be a mess to clean well. A fixed blade would be a simple rins in the stream. I still think something a little bigger than the 2.7 would have been best for me. This is not really worth starting a whole new thread. But what the hell. It is a slow day for me.
