Thanks, James! I'll be honest: even with the Axis being a "Mini" it's still comically large for my everyday carry. The thick blade and obtuse edge angle on the D2 steel is great for zip ties, but not so much for my more delicate uses. I'm hoping to pick up a KME soon, so I think I'll reprofile it and see how it does. I am a sucker for the deep carry clip I put on it, too.
