Thin is in. We've made our long-favored Cricket model even thinner by integrating the handle and lock. Custom knifemaker Chris Reeve invented the idea of making a linerlock's liner out of backside scale of the handle. In doing this, thickness and bulk are shaved off the handle for an ultra-thin folder that locks up confidently with fewer moving lock parts.

We've incorporated this design into a rounded handle with a reverse "S" shaped blade. The distinctive blade shape curves into a keen precision tip for intricate/detailed cutting. Made of VG-10 stainless steel, the blade is hollow-ground and when folded closed creates a rounded package that rides nearly invisibly in the pocket. The pocket clip carries right-handed tip-down but also attaches to a tie or makes a fashionable money clip. Create your own one of a kind Cricket with engraving, corporate logos or a personal message.

What a Pleasant Surprise
I originally bought one of these as a novelty, because I wanted a watch pocket knife and I like Japanese fabrics - mine is the apparently now-discontinued version with the Nishijin scale on one side.I would up buying four of the Nishijin Crickets because a) I was astonished at how useful it is, b) it is beautiful, c) it fits perfectly in the watch pocket of jeans, and d) I got one for each of my three sons.I don't see how you could effectively sharpen one of these without using the Spyderco system (I'm open to enlightenment on this), but since I have that system I'm able to keep most parts of it sharp enough for my purposes.I admit to being crazy about this little thing, though it's possible that if I were doing it over, I'd have opted for the Lil' Lum Nishijin version, though it is twice as expensive and probably would not work in the watch pocket. So...nah...I'm very pleased with these little things, and highly recommend them.

Spyderco Cricket vg10 plane blade
I've been carrying this knife for about 6 years and use it a dozen times a day. If you're in an office, it's unobtrusive and won't get you the strange you carry a knife looks. Opening it is a pleasure, pull it out of your pocket grab the Spyderco hole and flip the handle down and it opens right into your palm, perfect. The blade shape is perfect for opening boxes, cleaning your fingernails and opening a beer when you're done with work. Buy this knife and you will use it the rest of your life.
