Baladeo 22G is Svelte, Lightweight Pocketknife

To utter the words, “There are a lot of knives on the market,” would be a pointless understatement.  So many have similar visual style that it can be difficult for a company to design one that cuts through all the others as both eye-catching and offering something new to the potential buyer.  Thumbing through my Cub Scout Leader magazine, the Baladeo 22G Pocket Knife managed to do just that for me.  The stainless steel, über-slim folding knife is extremely slender and lightweight—the 22G stands for 22 grams.   That’s a lightweight knife.  The locking blade is non-serrated and features a narrow point.  Also includes a removable clip.  Several variants exist, including an even lighter 15G and an All Black 34G commando-style with partially-serrated blade.  Baladeo has a wide range of interesting gadgety products, and its worth a browser through their site.  Their products are available online through various retailers.  I found the 22G here at for $28.49.  I’m thinking about picking one of these up for an EDC knife.

    I see no mention of blade length at their website, usually a standard fact needed by knife shoppers.

    @Lex The treefort link pins the 34g at “over 4 inches”. Too long for EDC here in Michigan.

    @Lex – Hmm. You’re right. Perhaps the fact that Baladeo is an OUS-based complany has something to do with that? It does seem odd that they would omit the blade length.
