This is a great, sturdy knife. Made in Italy with m390. Love the micarta because you don't see as many folders with it. The blade shape is great for edc tasks. My only thing that is a negative is the action could be a little better for the price tag.
Best impulse purchase I've ever made

If they get more of these in stock I would jump on it.
Pros:
The Biblio design is stellar. I am a huge fan of sub 3Ē blades, and this one has become a frequent carry for me. The well-shaped drop point isnít a letter opener by any means, but more suited to tougher daily tasks. The green micarta is handsome right out of the box, and develops a really cool vintage patina as you carry it. M390 is a great steel, so no complaints there, and the blasted finish is consistent, done beautifully, and makes me happy. I really like that they blasted the wire pocket clip too. I am not a big fan of Spydercoís shinier version, and often wish they would do this too. Also, the ergonomics are perfect for my (large) hand. Iíll talk about the tab below, but once you get the flip action down it is fun to handle, and makes a very satisfying click sound when the lock engages.

Cons:
I wasn't sold on the flipper action right out of the box as the detent is a bit strong on mine, but it has loosened up significantly in the months I've owned it. There are, however, still times it fails to flip all the way open. This could be due to the small flipper tab, which I appreciate in the pocket, but you don't always get quite enough purchase on the tab to give it a good index finger flip. You're relying on the action to take over, and like I said, it doesn't always take over before the tab disappears into the handle. (Of course, as I wrote that I was unable to get it to NOT work) You definitely get used to the flipper tab, though, and the action of the knife becomes second nature (like any great tool should). The strong detent mentioned above also makes it harder for other opening options. Flicking it open using your thumb is easy enough, but a middle finger flip has yielded questionable results with the detent holding on tight in the closed position. So I stick to the flipper cuz thatís what itís there for. If Iím nitpicking, I would also like to see a slightly larger cutout for access to release the liner lock, and maybe smoother jimping there too.

The cons sound worse than they are. Given my experience with the Biblio, I am happy with the purchase, and would buy this knife again. 4 stars only because I think thereís still room to improve the design, and GM could make a Biblio II that would be perfect.
