Great knife

This is a great little knife. It's bit smaller than what I usually carry, but has a great blade and I love the micarta.
Just so good.

-Had it about 6 months. This blade is such a great walk-about knife. Broad and very very slicey, but the tip is precise enough for EDC. If you needed to do some work with it, the handle is big enough to really get a grip, especially with the forward choil and jimping.
-M390 is the real deal. Came shaving sharp and I can't imagine having any issues aside from extra work to re-sharpen... but so far it's held an edge.
-It's a bit fat for dress pants but I've done it. In Jeans or work pants it's awesome. Totally worth the money.

I was initially worried that this knife would be too small in the hand, but boy, was I wrong. Ergonomics are spot on. Somehow it fills the hand and the jimping on the top of the blade make quick work of precision cutting. Love the micarta in hand.
Worthwhile Purchase

I can't add anything new to the praise this knife has received from the community. From ergonomics and hand-feel to materials and aesthetic, this is a special item for those inclined to purchase it. The rest of the ACE lineup will be held to the Biblio standard in the future. If you are eyeing the Clyde or Iona, toss my recommendation in for the Biblio as a first priority purchase.

I really want to love this knife. Ergonomics are fantastic. I love the deeper finger choil and the jimping on the blade is in perfect position. Love the blade shape and came paper shaving razor sharp out of the box. The green micarta scales are the best I've seen. But the action.... the lock bar presses too hard against the blade and slows it down to the point of deployment failure. The only way to get deployment 100% of the time is wrist flick while using the flipper tab. Now I've only had the blade for a few weeks and have flipped it maybe 150-200 times but it hasn't gotten any better. Tried loosening the pivot and lube and it didn't do anything. For $175 I was hoping for a way better action.
Incredible Hand Feel

This knife has a great feel in the hand, and the fit and finish are beautiful. Though it is a smaller knife it has enough mass that it feels great even in my larger hand. The canvas micarta scales take on a great aesthetic wear giving an instant classic look.
Awesome knife.

Opens smoothly, locks up solid. Handle's a little short, 3-1/2 fingers for me, but I love the textured scales. It's cut everything I attempted, no major construction work yet but I have confidence in it. Great ergonomics, it feel's good in the hand. Not my first knife from this maker, and won't be the last.

Amazing knife, sharpest knife ive ever got out of the box. Its sturdy with an amazing flip, feels real good. Fits in my hand great for a smaller knife. The size makes it perfect for any precise work and you can really choke on up on it while maintaining control of the razor sharp blade at all times. The jimping towards the middle of the blade is very nice, wish I saw more blades with it. Overall a rock solid, razor sharp workhorse of an EDC.
Money well spent

This is the smallest pocket knife i have bought, i was unshure if the handle would fit my hand when i purchased it. I have large hands and im glad to say it fits very comfortably, the micarta feels great. The m390 blade came razor sharp out of the box and the gimping provides you with a reliable grip on the knife.
Tired of Spyderco and BM?

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

The design is beautiful, the materials are top notch,it's put together flawlessly, and the micarta gets better the longer you use it. It's a gem.

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.
