    I only carry an Opinel clasp knife at home, it does all I need to do from work in the garden to opening feed sacks.

    I carry the larger version when I am trekking. I have had a lot of knives in my time, but I think the Opinel is the best clasp knife I have ever owned. Light, simple, locking.

    Agreed. I carry one with a ferro rod attached on a piece of leather cord in a little pouch with an old HH silnylon tarp which folds down to nothing, a Sawyer filter and one of their scrunch up bottles and a length of (maybe) bankline that I scored/stole/secured. Oh, and a pen and a small notebook. Covers all the good little things I need as such.

    Wow, that's a very impressive collection Wave Man. Hey did they changed the laws recently regarding wrist flick opening knives in OZ? Any recommendations on a decent one (that's code for cheap but not junk)? I had one when I was the dock boy at Kangaroo Tent City Many,many moons ago. Darn handy tool but it got pinched.

    thanks mate, yes the law changed a while back, we can now import most one hand opening knives (except assisted opening and auto opening) without problems.

    Concerning recommendations, from my collection any of the Real Steel or Ruike are quality folders at an affordable price. Both Real Steel and Ruike offer bearing pivot flippers that fire reliably and come with good blade steel (almost exclusively 14c28n for their budget line) and they mostly sell for between AUD$40-$100

    Nice one Wave Man. Thanks for getting back to me with such a detailed response. I'm thinking the Ruike 841 has my name on it. Or maybe their gentleman's knife.. I think it's the 108 flipper. It's nice to see a little common sense come back into our laws again.

    not a problem mate. I don't have the 841 but do have the 108-SF. The Ruike 108-SF is a great 'gentleman's' knife. Of all my budget flippers I have it is among the best flippers, with a snappy action that doesn't disappoint. Here is some more detailed pics of the 108, including one of its lockup (which is very late around 90%)
