Check out the 806-901 limited AFCK run. M4 blade steel is good stuff! They made 250 plain edge and 250 part serrated ones. Can be pricey NIB, but a used one shouldn't be too bad. They have the original round hole instead of the interim oval style version.
Back to the 970 series, if you like a little larger one, check out the old BM975 model, it's one of my favorites, and to me, has a better feel than the EKI Super CQC-7.
