Thoughts on the Cadet.

I am completely spoiled by the Cadet. It seemed like a cool little knife when I forst got it, something to wear with dress pants and the like. It is a tad bit thinner then I would like a knife to be, but since I started carrying it, I just can't do without it. I carry my Wenger SI, and it seems too thick, the blade too big for me. I carry one of my traditional slippies, like my beloved Case Peanut or a Case Stockman, and they just don't seem to stack up to the Cadet. The alox construction just makes it feel...... indestructible. It is thin, but that makes for an extremely comfortable carry. A friend has a Case Mini Copperlock, and it is about the same size and width as the Cadet. However, the Cadet is way more functional and useful, what with it's can opener, bottle opener, drivers, and file/reamer. Sometimes I leave my Wave at home, depending on where I am going, but as long as I have the Cadet with me, I never feel under knifed/tooled. Try as I might, I can't seem to go back to my other knives. The Cadet has just taken over my pocket.
