The Ed Schempp Khukuri (C125)

This my current EDC knife.

I generally abhor liner-locks since I'm left handed but the interesting design of this folder overcame my feelings and I managed to snag it off the CPF marketplace for a decent price. I have ground down some of the liner, where it contacts the thumb, in order to make closing a little easier on the pad of my thumb and my thumbnail. Other than that it works suprisingly well for a lefty.

Overall the knife is very comfortable to use. The negative blade angle changes the way force and stress interact with the hand and wrist, to the user's benefit I believe. The blade is fairly thick for a small folder and feels very strong during use.
