David, your Pulitzer is not in jeopardy
They are both stellar smalls
@JB in SC thank you for the nice remarks. I frequently carry small knives at work; rarely at my office would I need a larger blade.
In over 2 years I haven't found any reason to carry anything but this:
3-1/4" Queen... This is bound to find a lot of coin pocket time (sorry #14).
I love seeing all the nice “smalls” posted here!
You don’t often see Bob Sims’ knives but I sure like carrying this one. It’s a little gent’s folder with a long pull, file work top and bottom, a slender blade, and some fine looking antique ivory, which gives it a heft that belies it’s size.
Great Sims David, I haven’t seen any of Bob’s knives in years. They don’t show up often.
Pemberton with white bone. Stays in my pocket most of the time.
A good 2 3/4" stockman is much more capable than it looks.
And, a couple more:
I didn't notice the MOP damage in the dark garage. Still, worth $4. W. H. Morley and Sons, Germany. The other blade is a tiny nail-file/cuticle pusher.
About 2 & 9/16".
Smooth Bone Sunday Smalls
My gerber silver knight. Before courthouses stoped letting you bring knives in, this was almost always in my pocket. Also when gerber was still a decent knife
Page 10? This thread needs a bump
Just under 3" folded Rodgers
Both of these congress knives are 3". The two blade is in the top tier of very practical small knives in my opinion.
Another 2 3/4" stockman. Still my favorite small pattern but the small congress rivals it.
Case Sparkx baby Butterbean
A few of my smalls with a couple biggies for perspective.
When talking about the usefulness of small blades, my mind often turns to small fixed blades. Fun with variety, eh. I enjoy dropping small fixed blades in my back pocket. Usually wrapped in a thin slip, usually without any form of belt loop or clips. Some leather, some kydex, some both. So here are my favorite fixed smalls that often see pocket time. We, Becker, Esee, Boker & Boker Plus.
Some Rough Rider/Colt, with a peanut sized Beagle for size comparison.
A few more, becoming a little more unique.
Going from unique to odd, but still in the fun zone. The pen knives are hits for cheap Christmas (or white elephant) gifts. Not sure what that CRKT is good for. Kind of an odd micro Ulu.
I absolutely love the Boker San-You-Go. Who doesn't need to have a 3 inch Santoku handy for a spontaneous mini meal. And the Boker Cop Tool seems like it would be good to have in the car for emergencies.
Hope I'm not stepping out of bounds by including some Small Fixed.
my smallest knife, 2 3/4 inches closed
Elosi made in germany
