    It's the Giant Mouse Ace Biblio with green micarta scales and M390 steel. I held out for a long time due to it's smaller size, even though I liked the looks of it from day 1 (especially with the micarta scales) and being used to larger (Sebenza, BM940, etc) knives. I'm digging it a lot, and glad I finally got my hands on one.

    Yeah Contego silver edition.

    I didn’t think I’d like it after handling Emac’s once. Then I was offered this one in a trade for my TOPS MSK and upon getting it I chucked a grinding bit in a drill and ground the jimping down along the liners. I love it now, definitely my most carried knife.

    Man, I can’t seem to pull the trigger on the Adamas. I get a funny feeling like I have to buy one NOW every time I see yours. Lol :p:D:rolleyes:

    It’s a great knife and I still carry it a fair amount, but it has lost a considerable amount of pocket time to my Contego only because the Contego has a much smaller carry profile in my pocket. I’d rate cutting performance to be very similar.

    I felt encouraged by @Mike Smith to carry this one today.

    Today it's my Milwaukee hawk bill folder they issue at work. Blade holds an edge like hot aluminum and a belt clip that a toddler would have a hard time not bending out of usefulness....

    I wish they'd let us carry personal knives in here...
