I am a big fan of the Chinese Folder design by Bob Lum and Spyderco. I have all the variations I want – which is pretty much all of them, except two (the black blade Moteng exclusive and the infamous cranberry version). So I am positive I will add this smaller Lum Chinese Folder to my collection. According to Eric, the clip on this prototype is too long and a new clip will be made for the production version. Apart from its size, the Lil’ Lum has another difference compared to the regular (medium and large) Chinese Folder designs. The smaller blade is a bit curvier in the edge than the other designs that feature more of a straight edge. This smaller blade is almost like a spearpoint design. The Lil’ Lum also features skeletonized liners and will be made in Japan. I’m sure this small classy utility folder will see plenty of pocket time, and not just collect dust in my display cabinet.
