Fancy and well made.
Eric J.
This and the Gentleman's were purchased together. Mcusta makes quality and unique folders. I like the blue and orange and the deep carry pocket clip. The D2 blade has the nicest Tanto shape and resembles Damascus. No blade play. Easy thumb stud opening but needs breakin for flip-opening. The price is worth the purchase, but if you're saving for a small Sebenza, there is no comparison Thank you.
Fantastic knife and a great bargain

This has been my first purchase from BHQ and first of all great service. Quick shipping with tracking and the package arrived in perfect condition. The knife itself is a knockout. Razor sharp out of box and more gorgeous in person that I could have believed. It's a lighter blue than pictured here which is good because the gold pairs perfectly with it. Very comfortable in hand although slightly slick with little to no texture on the handle. Lockup is tight and the blade is perfectly centered. With a little thumb "umph" the blade snaps out lightning fast. Clips and carries comfortably and I've had no trouble with it catching when I'm drawing it out. $130 is a steal for this knife which does so much so well. Now I'm planning to buy the remaining color ways very soon.

I have been trying to get one of these for a couple of years, at least. It was on my wish list at Blade HQ, as soon as they notified me these were in stock I bought one. Now I see why they are so popular, it is an excellent knife. You would think it is worth twice as much as it costs. The blue seems to be a bit lighter than in the picture. The blade is extremely sharp. My advice is get one while you can!
