SMG1552: Gekko Mini 1552
Steel Will Knives
 
The Gekko Mini’s smaller footprint and reduced weight make them practical companions for daily carry. Designed to excel in the great outdoors as well as common utility tasks, these Italian-made folders are as beautiful as they are functional. The Gekko Mini’s deploy smoothly with a simple flip of the thumb stud, rotating in a smooth, fluid motion on the pivot. The 1552 displays elegant class with a maroon Micarta handle which may not be a typical color combination for folding knives, but emphasizes the individuality of its owner.

Love this knife
Great size for EDC. Not a light knife, but I don't mind the weight. Holds a great edge. I haven't tried sharpening the N690Co yet so I can't speak to that, but that because it holds an edge well and it came very sharpe. Only complaint would have to be the gimping on the lock bar is a bit aggressive. I'm thinking about filing it down a little. Handle is great, very beautiful, clip is nice, easy to get in and out of the pocket. The blade is great for EDC, and the multiple swedges look very sharp (as in nice). Best pocket knife I own out of 12.
