    I am reasonably sure the MicroJimbo is going to end up with an SOS mold. And some investigation if a Wiseman Fang or 5x5 Pickpocket will fit it.

    It looks like a phenomenal choice for sub 2.5" environments. It also has reshaped scales relative to the other Yojimbos with a more neutral looking handle. I will need it in hand to determine if a reverse grip works with it, but looks promising so far.

    Microjimbo is interesting. Having a bigger hand, I'm wondering how much smaller the grip will be both in dim and feel from the yojimbo.

    Agree: that Microjimbo is looking more and more intriguing.
    Skill and experience weigh nothing, and you have them with you all the time.

    As someone who has to potentially deal with this on both sides of the equation i.e. someone who may carry a knife, someone who could theoretically consequence someone who carried a knife that was too big:

    I would advise someone to carry a knife that had a blade length that is clearly less than 2.5 inches.

    I would measure the blade in a manner such that the blade is 2.5 max at any point along where the ricasso meet the bolster/handles of the knife.

    I fully understand that many knife have sharpened edges less than 2.5 inch but when the knife if "bottomed out" against the edge of a desk or ruler, the "blade" is going to visibly measure longer than 2.5 inches.

    One could then argue the blade is really just the sharpened edge, not the dull choil, flipper etc. Knock yourself out being that test case. Notably, many of the larger retailers do an excellent job differentiating between the blade length and the cutting edge length in this regard online.


    YMMV- to quote Stephanie B " I wouldn't do that s@&* if I were you."

    Agreed, I know it had been getting some discussion but didn’t realize it was about to on the street. That may be the inverse gateway drug into finally just buying the OG Yojimbo.

    I hate sounding like a steel nerd, and I’m definitely not, but would like to see it offered in a “Salt” steel. One of my favorite travel things about the Dragonfly Salt is that I can stow it in my boardshorts and go in and out of water all day and maybe rinse it in the sink.

    Sound thinking. Another point in favor of this new microjimbo offering.

    I’m glad to see this. I want to like Spyderco knives for so many reasons, but the deep finger grooves and in-swept blade angle don’t work for me.

    @vcdgrips and @PNWTO addressed that better than I could.

    I had Ban Tang reprofile a Spyderco P'Kal's blade down to 2.5 inches. Neat package.

    Decided to return the Spyderco Dodo as the grip was to small for my hands. Ordered one of the Michael Janich custom Jandela's.
