    Indeed. Spyderco has done a great job making small knives with enough handle via their 50/50 choil.
    Even the Dragonfly has enough to hang onto because of that and the high arch of the handle, which means it doesn't twist in the hand. It's not a fist-grip knife, but it works. Most knife companies are too fixated on the blade/handle proportions and just shrinkify things.

    Of course if you actually HAVE small hands, I'm sure they work great! It's important to remember that just maaaaaybe not every knife is intended for the average adult male hand...

    I think I wear size large in gloves. Everything I hear about the mini bugout it that it is very small in hand. I’m expecting a grain of rice with a blade attached. It supposed to be here in the next couple of days. I’ll let y’all know what I think

    Looking good there. The axis lock was designed by my neighbor, passed away recently.

    I wear size L glove as well but my hands aren't that wide, just longer. The more basic handle shape is nice and is more accommodating than a lot of other knives out there. Let us know what you think when you get it! What color did you go with?

    I wear a large glove but can usually get my hand into a medium if the need arises. I can't imagine the mini after feeling the full size.

    This was key, unboxing the mini bugout right after opening the Kershaw Launch 10 ;) Mini Bugout feels great in hand and incredibly light at 1.54oz sick couple if knives 8E9FB77D-F477-4E8E-9A0A-5CC32568CC75.jpeg

    I really like S30V. Touched up the edge this morning and stropped it.

    @mwramos76 how do you like the mini?

    I’m really enjoying it. It’s like a sharp toy it’s so light. The white scales are getting dirty already though lol
