Great and Fun Design
Tristan M. on Oct 31, 2019

I like the looks of this knife especially the blade shape. It fits well in my hands, but airs on the small end. It disappears in the pocket. My only complaint is that the deployment is inconsistent and i have to lube mine and play with the pivot to balance deployment and blade centering

I am glad I own this knife a very unique and modern material slip joint. The black G10 blends well with the carbon fiber, I must say for a slip joint this one is definitely unconventional as far as style goes but nonetheless definitely a great little knife but just a fair warning it’s actually smaller then one might think. But if you’re into slip joints I would highly recommend adding this for some different flavor to your collection.

What a cool and well-executed little knife. I love the blade shape and the m390. It is light and you don't even notice it's on you when you carry it. A very unique knife in my collection. I bought one for myself and one for my dad for Christmas, and I hope he likes his as much as I like mine.
