An Elegant Knife
Addison d. on Oct 27, 2019

An elegant knife, with a feeling of quality despite the understated materials. The blade was very sharp right out of the box. I do wish that it had some spring-assist for the opening, but this is my first flipper and maybe I'm just not accustomed to it yet. The only other issues I see are that the pocket clip is very stiff which makes it hard to use at times (both in and out), and that the knife is a little on the heavy side. EDIT: After owning this knife for almost two years and using it as my daily carry, I've had to replace it twice. The first one didn't close with the point below the handle. The second one started to do the same thing, leaving just enough of the tip exposed to slice my hand. Cleaning it helped, but now the action feels gritty. I'm about to send it in to be replaced again. I'm not sure if it just doesn't like the high-particulate environment (I work in a metals shop) or if there is something else going on. At least the warranty is good...
