51 is the standard.

    My biggest problem with the 51 is that it's not a 32.

    Yup, it's a standard alright... it's the standard dust collector in my collection. Anything BRS or HOM blows it out of the water IMHO. The big advantage of a 51, like you said, is that it is available any day of the week if you want one - HOM and BRS not so much.

    While the 51 tends to get a bad rep from flippers, it is still a nice knife. I would not consider it the best (w/ or w/out Ti scales) for either flipping or edc but a nice knife none the less. I prefer my 32 and just about everything else in my collection over it but still have love for it.

    Well until I get a nicer knife ( and I did just pick up a tachyon ), I’ll like my 51 just fine.

    That's the thing. You won't find or buy a better knife.

    No but I have a wet dream every night of a 51 with SS scales that are hand rubbed to perfection. Hand rubbed metals get me going. Especially on the 51.

    Yeah the scales are perfect. Needs no upgrades to flip it. I am going to go insane.

    You ever flip a Hom or a good bearing pivot knife? I love my 51, but those knives do make it seem rattly.
