I have always enjoyed large folders and tend to gravitate towards those. Recently though I wanted to lighten up the things that I EDC so I purchased a 556 from KnivesShipFree. I had never given the mini-grip much thought because I thought it would look and feel cheap compared to Benchmade's more expensive models and I was wrong. I initially bought my old man one of these for a gift as he prefers a smaller knife and he has used the crap out of it. Although 154cm isn't the flavor of the week but the steel holds a great edge and is easily brought back when it goes dull. I liked the knife so much that I bought one and now EDC it! Really love this as an EDC/utility folder.
