    A 112 would be be even lower yet; too bad no D/As that I'm aware of in those.
    As an aside I may have figured out both which hoops and how to jump through them in order to post a photo from the gallery (earlier post of mine).

    I remember getting some for about $375 new and want to cry. I had three and just knew there would be tons more. I was drinking heavily in those days so that's as good as any excuse for being a coal bucket.

    I have one of Buck's factory 110 autos. It's single action only using a coil spring.

    I'm hoping that we'll see more options for quality autos and D/A knives now that Colorado, Michigan, and others have made them legal.

    Yeah, d/a autos and just plain old trick autos have always been "cool" to me and some designs are practical for edc. Wish there were more production options available. Favorite I own is prolly an mtx2 for production. Custom would be a tough call.

    Hell, and while we're here, another regret.
    A very rare Triple Black (Blade/Clip/Hardware) Tactical LCC/DA:

    I know some here don't love Microtech (cough...Benny...cough), but I did trade emails with them a couple days ago and told them that it'd be great if they offered new runs of some of their D/A models.

    How come Marphony doesn't make more mtx2? Seems like there is a "new" ultra tech and Halo every week but nothing like these.

    I'm guessing the need to adjust their action is part of the equation accounting for the dearth of MT D/As.
    What about one of these:

    Is that the trick pen blade one?

    I hate tony, he makes great knives but he is a douchebag.
    And I can hold a grudge like a fat girl holds onto a doughnut

    I wound up buying one of the Spyderco Vallotton conversions, but I foresee a D/A collection in my future...

    I would have suggested that but I didn't think they were still available.... was it new or off the secondary market? Either way it is a great choice.

    They are still available brand new for $350, I'll list the retailer if that isn't against forum rules...
