This Limited Edition Cambria model sports a stonewashed blade and a black anodized aluminum handle with a black stainless steel pocket clip.
The Cambria is the first flipper folding knife to join Pro-Tech's extensive lineup. It offers a slender, easy-to-carry build with a ball bearing pivot and button lock for smooth one-handed operation. The curvature of the handle provides a comfortable and natural grip, with the flipper serving as a guard for added security during use. Complete with a deep carry clip and a lanyard cut handle, the Cambria is a top contender for a slot in your EDC rotation.
This was a knife that I had heard some rumors about so I decided to sink a little cash and pick up the base model. Without a doubt it has quickly become my favorite edc. Pros: Amazing action Good to go steel Fall shut action Unique look and feel Great ergonomics Cons: The pocket clip while being deep carry rattles a little on closing The aluminum scratches if dropped NO DISASSEMBLY. Conclusion: this is a knife I can't praise enough. If you're looking for a great knife for a fair price look no farther.
First, let me say there is nothing wrong with this knife, it's beautifully made. There are just several things I'm not comfortable with, but they may occur with any flipper knife. I don't know, this is the first flipper I've bought. First concern, if you let the knife close itself, depending on the angle at which you're holding it, the blade may free fall into the case and bounce out again and inch or two. Of course you can do a normal two-handed closing perfectly well. When I first bought the knife, I called BladeHQ with some of my concerns. The person I talked to said he started using the knife in place of a fidget spinner to get used the action needed to effect a positive opening. Since that time, I have practiced opening and closing this knife literally hundreds of times and I still wouldn't rely on me getting it deployed in a stressful situation. I also am not fond of the radical change in had position to move from opening it to holding it. Of necessity your index finger which pulls the flipper has to be moved back around the knife handle to get a proper grip on it. I will use this knife around the house, and it's fun to play with, but I would never use it as an EDC because I don't feel comfortable that I could get it successfully deployed in a self-defense situation. YMMV.
