Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I received this knife as a gift and loved it so much that I bought one for my girlfriend almost 2 years later. I've taken the knife on several multi-day backpacking trips and it's my go-to blade. It's small enough to comfortably fit in your pocket, but the handle is still sufficient to get a solid grip on it quickly and easily.
Some other reviewers have mentioned difficulty with a one-handed open or close of this knife - I have had no such problem. Like any new toy, it takes a few times practicing to get it just right, but I can one-hand open or close this knife in my sleep without ever missing.
The colors are great too. Mine is the dark army green with the black blade and the one I bought for my girlfriend is turquoise-blue with the silver blade. Both have the combination blade, which I recommend. The pictures are true to the color.
Overall, this is a great, sturdy knife that looks sharp and stays sharp.

Unless you're racing at an extremely competitive venue, I can't imagine why you would want more of a pole than is offered in the Joystick Spicolli. It's a pole. It's an aluminum tube with a basket on one end and a handle on the other.
The Good: This pole has unique paint which is kind of fun and will set you apart from the crowd in the lift-line.
The Bad: The grips that come with these poles are a low-quality plastic. If you're like me, that's a not a big deal. If you want something better, the grips are easy to replace.
The Bottom Line: Why would you pay more for a pole that will do the exact same thing and not look as cool?
