New outstanding Y-Start folders



After testing an awesome fixed blade from Y-Start I decided to try their new folders too. It was a good decision because they managed to produce unique high quality folders at a budget price.

Pros:
- stylish & sturdy folders with an excellent fit and finish
- solid lock-up without any blade play 
- comfortable micarta handle with good ergonomics
- useful bladeshape with a nice stone washed or satin finish
- definite jimping on the blade spine
- symmetrical blade grinds (which is not common in this price range)

Cons:
- I rounded the edge of the liner-lock bar with my Dremel to make it more comfortable to unlock
- The satin version needed a couple of days to break in (smooth opening / closing)

I found the clip on the stone washed version too shiny for my taste so I modded it. I think a mat grey clip suits this version better.

Details:
Blade length: 3.5" (89 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.157" (4 mm)
Blade steel: AUS-8A Stainless Steel (58-60 HRC)
Open length: 8.26" (210 mm)
Closed length: 4.72" (120 mm)
Weight: 7.05 oz  (200 g)  satin version with steel bolsters
Weight: 6.1 oz (173g) stone washed version with G10 bolsters 
Handle: micarta with steel liners and G10 or steel bolsters
Lock: liner lock
Carry: right hand tip up
