A Great Knife
After many years of carrying pocket knives, including several sebenzas, I have decided that my favorites are the mercator K55 and the opinel #8 - especially the K55. In terms of ease of carry (thinness), blade size, shape, and grind, I would guess that most people would find it ideal, even if it is not a one handed knife. The carbon steel takes a slightly better edge than the stainless, but both are good. There is a reason that the K55 has been produced and popular for about 150 years. It may not have fancy inlays, micro-precise machining or a pocket clip, but it is a beautiful knife in terms of overall design, practicality, and ease of use.
