Size comparison of the various sizes the Sheepdog comes in...mini, "regular", and "XL"...the XL is a lot bigger than it looks in pictures. Roughly 5 3/8" closed, 9 1/4" open.

Very interesting blade, is it sharpened to an edge or dull for prying?

Sharp enough to slice through phone book paper with ease. I don't think it was deigned for prying, the blade is not all that thick.

Maybe just the magnification/angle but looks like a squared off edge

It's the angle and the light. Single flash and shooting at an angle, with a macro lens. The lines are stepped, so it has a "rough" surface feel to it, but it definitely has a sharpened edge. I can get some shots of it if you want.

Arrived today...three Eafengrow knives...

One, the EF932, I only bought because it looked so crazy similar to the Kizer Sheepdog that I just had to have it. Funny thing, side-by-side it's just a shrinky version of the Sheepdog. If the dimensions were any closer I'd say it was a Kizer Sheepdog...

As a retired, Social Security recipient, so are mine. :-)
My Norseman was a gift from a (rather wealthy) friend in California. I had done a favor for him, and although I reiterated repeatedly that I didn't want anything in return .... that knife showed-up in the mail one day.

Well...I guess today is delivery day, just got this in. No branding, except for the Microtech sword emblem on the clip. I'm assuming this comes from the same factory that puts out "SMKE/Hong Kong Knives/Uragon/Eafengro​w/Etc.". The blade was super-guillotine fast on the close so I had to grease the bearings to slow it down. Way, way too fast even for someone who'd been playing with knives his whole life. Incredibly impressed when I get a clone/copy that's cheap, and winds up being so freakishly good in build quality. Full titanium except for the hardware...

I'm calling this knife the "Buster" because it looks like a WE Buster. It's a no-name knife I found on DHGate. Small, 2.75" cutting length, 6.5" overall. This is not an illusion, there are two in the photo...
