The CJRB Taiga is a perfect sized flipper knife. With tough steel liners and carbon fiber scales, you won't have to worry about structural failure. Following the smooth action of the flipper, a liner lock secures the D2 blade in place, ready for heavy to light cutting at your will. Includes a deep carry pocket clip and a lanyard hole.
When it comes to traditional knives, the Taiga is a wonderful modern variant. At first glance, it's kind of simple and boring. However, its straightforward design makes it an effective cutting tool that's comfortable to hold and put to work. I feel that CJRB has another win in their product line, especially if you like a good ol' fashioned drop point. This blade sports a swedge towards the tip that gives it a slightly more aggressive look. Also, there's a subtle curve in the spine that makes it visually appealing. However, I don't believe this curve is meant for your thumb. It's too far forward, and even with my medium/large hands, I still have to overstretch to reach it. The handle is comfortable but lacks jimping at the blade junction. I always appreciate a little texture for my thumb, even if it's subtle. The flip action is amazing. It closes smoothly. The flipper tab has a great striking angle for opening, but is somewhat large and sticks out in the open position, which works well as a guard. Again, I would've liked some jimping on the flipper. Overall, this knife has some nice heft and feels solid and should make for some easy cutting. Enjoy the slice!
