Similar to CK who says snap is a 6 while W&T is 4 of 5. I'll post my impressions when the first gets here (had to order from 2 dealers to get 2 knives). I turned out not to be too disappointed on the change from green camel bone to aqua blue and I think the size of the 12 is right in the wheelhouse for this pattern.

As a follow up to my review, I am finding the user knife to be quite excellent at what it was designed to do - cutting. The blade is broader than comparable Case medium toothpicks and about the same as the #112 from Queen. The 1095 is holding an edge rather well and it is slender enough to vanish in the LFP. It's a looker, too, really validating my preference for camel bone over bovine (sorry, cows) and drawing comments from bystanders. GEC has got their hooks on me when it comes to camel bone and houndstooth shields. I'm glad to have another muskrat clip in the user pile, too. Unlike some others I'm a little overwhelmed with standard clip masters like the GEC #1 blade.

Oh BTW, in the box with the knife was a surprise. Frank sent me this nice display! It has 2 magnified pins to hold the knife in place. It works perfectly. Thanks a lot Frank!
