Review: Fura Gear "Shrapnel" titanium flipper - an amazing deal from GearBest

Fura Gear "Shrapnel" titanium flipper
Solid titanium folder with excellent ergonomics 

Fura Gear raised the bar again with this titanium frame-lock flipper! It's unbelievable how they could add so many features to this folder what you could see only in the $60+ price range so far (titanium frame-lock construction with blind screwed milled titanium pocket clip, ball bearings etc.).   

Pros:
- excellent fit & finish with nicely chamfered / rounded lines
- superb ergonomics 
perfectly centered, shaving sharp, light stone washed blade
- excellent flipping action with smooth opening & closing thanks to the ball bearings
- blind screwed milled titanium pocket clip
- solid, early lock-up without any movement
- steel lock-bar insert
- comfortable flipper tab and lock-bar design

Cons:
- the pivot screw needed some thread locker because it got loose
- I could live with a smaller "Fura Gear" logo on the blade
- sharp corners at the lock-bar cut out in opened position (it can be fixed easily with a piece of sandpaper) 

Details:
Blade length:       3.58" (91 mm)
Blade thickness:  0.157" (4 mm)
Blade steel:          D2 (~ 60HRC)
Open length:        8.3" (211 mm)
Closed length:      4.72" (120 mm)
Handle thickness: 0.5" (12.9 mm)
Weight:                 4.79 oz (136 g)
Handle:               titanium
Lock:                   frame-lock with steel lock-bar insert
Pivot:                   ball bearings
Carry:                  right hand tip up

Review: Fura Gear titanium friction folder / bottle opener

Fura Gear titanium friction folder / bottle opener
High-tech titanium friction folder

It’s a fine mini folder with nicely finished chamfered/rounded lines all over it. It’s a non-locking design (like a friction folder) but it’s also equipped with a kind of “detent lock” which helps to keep the blade in opened or closed position. The handle, the backspacer and the pocket clip are made of titanium and the blade runs on bearings. In closed position it’s disguised as a bottle opener. ;)

Pros:
- awesome minimalistic design
- excellent fit & finish with nicely chamfered / rounded lines 
- titanium handle, pocket clip and backspacer
- perfectly centered, shaving sharp, stone washed sheepfoot blade
- nice jimping on the blade spine and on the backspacer
- smooth opening & closing thanks to the ball bearings
- milled titanium pocket clip
- it functions as a bottle opener in closed position

Cons:
- none, although a slightly bigger version would be awesome

Details:
Blade length:       1.73" (44 mm)
Blade thickness:  0.154" (3.9 mm)
Blade steel:          S35VN
Open length:        4.33" (110 mm)
Closed length:      2.91" (74 mm)
Handle thickness: 0.43" (10.8 mm)
Weight:                 2.01 oz (57 g)
Handle:               titanium
Lock:                   non-locking "detent-lock"
Pivot:                   ball bearings
Carry:                  right hand tip up
Extra:                  bottle opener function
