Response to Matt, when you get your Mercator...

I mean, it's tempting to claim that you could get a better knife, a modern knife, for the same $$.
OTOH, stainless handle... probably decent steel in the blade... knock the lanyard loop off and put a pocket clip for tip-up carry..... tempting....

Stainless is a dollar more....

Oh man now I have to go to bladeforums.com and read about how much cardboard they can cut, stainless vs carbon.
