Incredibly smooth.
Nico A.
This knife stands out from every other knife in this price range for 2 reasons, liner lock and needle bearings. The combo of these two makes an almost drop shut action. My knife came full of actual thick grease on the bearings, but once I cleaned it out and added some 10 weight oil, this thing became a new animal. Itís lkke you supercharged the thing. Handle ergonomics are good, while being a little slippery due to the nature of aluminum. You arenít using this for hard use though so it is fine. Overall, Iíd rate this knife 9/10.
Smoothest flipper ever.
Renae B.
First this has needle or roller bearings, not ball bearings. The difference this makes is it combines the smooth feeling of (good) bronze washers with the low friction, free action of ball bearings, you can't feel it rolling on the bearings.
Yeah it's a front flipper, it's my first one and it took maybe 10 minutes to learn to open it reliably and I'm not a genius.
The blade is slim but doesn't fall into the trap of being thick behind the edge, it's nice and thin.
Tip: if you have a ruike hussar or p801 you can retrofit their deep carry clips onto this, that's how I carry mine.
