CRK451XXP: K451XXP Eros Small
For those who want five stars, here's the pocket knife version.

When Ken Onion designed the original Eros, he invented "gentleman's tactical" - knives that look swanky AND get the job done. Now, the Eros with flat handles brings the beauty of this gentleman's folding pocket knife to the folks who don't have a country club membership and they wouldn't know what to do with it if they did.

The New Eros is a church knife, suit knife or gent's knife that sits slim and discrete in the pocket, yet doesn't require a fat wallet to get your hands on. It's got flat, stainless steel handles that are perfect for customization and a sleek blade that keep it quiet, yet confidently infused with testosterone. The IKBS pivot ball-bearing system makes opening this blade silky smooth.

The Eros comes in a large size or this small size. Being a gentleman never felt so manly.

My Idea of a Good Gentleman's Pocket Knife
The Blade Design of this little knife is excellent for all the things a gentleman may need a pocket knife for while dressed for a pleasant night out — sharp and pointy for catching a thread that needs to be snipped, slim and pointy for dealing with a sliver or some similar delicate task, great for opening envelopes or cutting ribbons ... it's a small, pleasing and very useful shape for a nice, classy gent to have in his pocket. I'm never without a knife, but one doesn't want to walk around with a 3.5"blade (or bigger) in one's tuxedo :) One sad point — mine was a bit sloppy when opened and locked, so I carefully tightened the pivot screw until it wasn't sloppy any more ... but now the opening action is a bit stiff and awkward. This is a production line issue, not a design flaw, and hopefully yours won't suffer this problem.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
A drop in the pocket
Great for people who want a small edc that need not be clipped on the pants. Especially in a professional environment. Ultra fine tip. Flipper should be slightly higher above the pivot though.
