I was pretty stoked. Here it is. Its a gun metal color. The box is a bit damaged but nothing too bad.
Agree! Sharp utility, I use for many small tasks daily!
I have been practicing opening and closing it one handed It is much easier with 2 hands but can be done easily with one hand The small size makes it a bit awkward at first but after a few minutes it was much easier I just hope I don't have to use it like that pilot did but glad to know that it likely saved his life
I have mine on a chain with my house keys and it works easiest for me if I have my little finger through the key chain to anchor it so that when I slide the blade forward the handle does not slide forward in my hand
Thats exactly the way my father showed my sister Anne and myself to use the knife. Also, with the little finger through the chain, and the blade extended only to the first notch, your thumb can conceal the blade and its ready in hand if things get hinkny.
I had taken the chains off for the pics, so you could see the attachment point of each knife, and have not put them back on Guess I need to put that chain back on and practice opening that way Good tip I am glad the knife helped her be able to defend herself as well
When I started in the fire service these were de rigueur for my department, so of course I had to buy one. Never cared for it though; I thought my SAK Pioneer and Buck 110 did what I needed them to do better.
Nice write-up VICMAN

Great pics William! I have a Mariner and Traveler on the way.
Thanks,Christy knives can grow on you.The company story is a tribute to an American company that has hung in despite all the new stuff out there.I was asking questions about purchasing via email and the current Mr. Christy was responding. Finally he just told me to call him which I did. Wonderful person.
Yes, they can grow on you. It is a nitch item, but it gets the job for what its designed for done very well. But I tend to like nitch items like the Christy knife, the little North American Arms mini revolver, Vespa motor scooters. I have a love of weird witch stuff that works well.
