I have been looking at these and have considered owning one for the sheer utility of the implement. Slim, light and the steel takes (and holds) a wicked edge.

The fact that the newer knived can be had for less than $30.00 is encouraging. Are the new Mercators functional, working knives? I am hoping that this is the case. It they are, they seem well worth the purchase price.

So many knives... so little money.
