Simple

It’s just USABLE. I wanted something I could use and know it is reliable. No hard use tool but a quality one that doesn’t weigh down the pocket. This one does it. I also love that there are no tiny intricate pieces that I can expect to have break on me

Perfect little key-chain knife

My wife asked for her own knife when she saw my Carter. This little blue number fits the bill, and the best part is that it will end up in my pocket if my wife ever decides she doesn't need it.

Elko Replacement

I've owned an Elko for over 5 years and unfortunately, while recently going through the TSA check through at O'Hare International Airport, I was asked to surrender this small pocketknife that I always kept on my keyring. Not thinking, I unfortunately was in violation. I didn't know how much i depended on this small knife that was given to me as a present, until I had to live without it. After two weeks, I ordered a replacement. I appreciated the quick shipment response.

Awesome Multi-Use Tool

I've had this small knife now for about 3 years and it lives on my keychain. I love this thing for it's size, durability, and how it gets out of the way when I don't need it. It has aged very well and the quality is really high. I'm not really and EDC guy or one who cares a ton about knives or things, but this was well worth the investment as it's lasted much longer and stayed sharper longer than any other knife I've ever had.
