The Timavo offers sleek EDC style with a Voxnaes design and a solid MKM Italian build. This model is built with a black G-10 handle and a satin Bohler M390 steel blade.
I really wanted to love this knife. The designer's work is amazing, and I've heard great things about MKM's fit and finish, so when the Timavo went on sale I snapped one up. Here's a brief summary of my thoughts. Pros: -great fit and finish -excellent blade in terms of material, grind, and performance -a big fan of the wire clip -crowned spine and choil area are pleasant to hold. Cons: -Action....had a detent so weak, I'd say two out of three flips the blade won't deploy. -Poor ergonomics (XL sized hands, long skinny fingers) -When closed the tip of the blade protrudes enough to get caught on things. Kind of dangerous.... Overall I'm disappointment that a knife so well finished had two flaws that even budget brand knives consistently avoid. Namely, the poor action/deployment, and the dangerously protruding blade tip. That sort of discontinuity just makes no sense to me. (Four months later: The action has smoothed out a lot. Now the flipper has become fairly reliable. Much better than initially. I'm adding a star to my review)
