Though anything but new on the market, one of my favorite smaller folding knives remains the Boker Trance with the almost full flat grind AUS8 blade. As compact as the Trance might be, it offers a hand-filling grip and thanks to the frame lock and flipper (which acts more as a very effective handguard), outstanding security. It makes a perfect EDC knife. I just wish there was a version for southpaws. When I like an item a lot, I usually keep a spare in case it is discontinued. The Boker Trance is one of those items.
