Pros: Blade Material, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
There's a reason Peanut owners call it "One of my favorites"
When I was first married in the mid-70's a Peanut was my EDC knife. As I became a home owner (in the country) and learned to do more and more things well, I felt the need for a more versatile knife, and switched to a Medium Stockman, which is still my EDC knife. But "once a Peanut owner . . ." This is now my "suit and tie" pocketknife. But it's size belies what it's capable of. Superbly well made, with excellent half-stops on both blades, and the most satisfying "snap" you ever heard on closing them, this little doobie emerges as a truly versatile knife, beyond what it's diminutive size suggests. Unlike many, I actually prefer Cases' "Tru-Sharp" (440HC) blade steel, as once a good edge is put on it (and it is from the factory) a quick steeling at the end of every day you use it KEEPS it that way. I have read that their handle synthetic is both Delrin and Zytel - I honestly don't know which this is, but no worry there: Both are *excellent* synthetic handle materials. A wonderful little knife, and a tribute to "American Made". I just know I'll be ordering one of these eventually in a dark jigged bone or stage handle, too!
