    $57 shipped from ebay buy it now auction, quality feels good, it's much bigger than i thought it was, but I don't think it's too big for daily carry. The clip is really tight though and when i clip it in the pocket of my work slacks, it pulls the pocket lining inside out when i remove it. Maybe that'll break in.

    Blade opens very smooth, but it isn't loose which i like. It's pretty sharp out of the box but I'd like the blade to be a little sharper - course I'm used to dealing with our Wustoff kitchen knives and I keep those pretty damn sharp for my wife.

    Overall i'm happy with it so far for what I paid. I'm not sure i'd be very happy though if i had paid the MSRP of $130

    I was too lazy to throw the rest of my carry gear in the pic :o

    It'll probably fuck your pants up.. my CRKTs have.. so does the AK. The Strider nearly shreds them. So far, I'm happy with the wagner.

    I've got a CRKT M16-01K and love the shit out of it. Carry it everyday and it hasn't fucked up my pants but I wear it on the inside of the waist of my pants.

    I found a 13SF in a temporary barracks room I was in about 2-3 months after I got to Okinawa. It needed to be sharpened, but it fits very nicely in my extra mag pouch while I am on duty.

    Came in handy a couple times too. :cool:
