For $35, you can't beat the Squid.

In natural G10 and D2 steel, this Lucas Burnley design has easily become an EDC favorite.

Its small size allows it to be easily carried as a secondary knife, which is usually in my shirt pocket.

I'm still trying to decide if I want to dye the scale; however, I really like the clean look that the lighter shade of green creates in unison with the stainless steel frame (on the pocket clip side).

I'm usually not a fan of different scale materials/colors, but it seems to really work in this instance.

With my medium/large hand, I'm able to get a 3-finger grip on the knife.

There's a well-placed lanyard hole at the butt. Maybe adding a little paracord tail might provide just a little more purchase, thus just a little more control and leverage when digging in for a cut.

When a non-knife person asks for a knife, I'm more likely to hand them this little guy over one of my larger more expensive knives.

The thumb stud flipper action isn't as amazing as I'd hope, but it gets better with practice. Reverse flipping (using the index finger on the thumb stud on the other side) seems to work best for me.

If you're considering the Squid, keep in mind, we've all spent $40 on worse things, so go for it!

Best of success with your EDC and remember to enjoy the slice!
One of the Greats!

Action great for a small blade, phosphor bronze washers. D2 blade strops up shaving sharp.

G-10 scale knocks down weight considerably, but not as colorful/jade as photos show; more muted/neutral, should take dye nicely.

Fits perfectly in jeans coin pocket. Perfect size for office carry, not likely to scare anyone upon use.
Nice Second Squid

This is my second Squid and I love it. I can confirm it is supplied with bronze washers. My other Squid is the base Stainless Steel model and is my go-to for serious home projects. The new Squid sports D2 and is significantly lighter.
Great little affordable edc
