Eric G. on Dec 30, 2019

The thumb disc is the worst opening mechanism I’ve ever used.

JACK W. on May 7, 2020

-blade off center and hard to center -action worse (not smooth, not crisp or snappy, not fun to open) than almost every budget flipper I've owned -thumb disc is very slippery can't use it with wet or damp hands. -lock binds on micarta -it's missing a screw by design. The knife literally comes with an open screw hole. -apparently it came with a lanyard loop stuffed somewhere in the packaging, but it doesn't tell you about it anywhere. Neither retailer or manufacturer mention this feature. I had to watch a youtube video to discover it. -Decent quality micarta and quite sharp. -Good ergonimocs.
