My slightly modded Whaleshark G10

Next to my DAMM

Pros:
- awesome unique design with good ergonomics
- strong titanium frame lock with steel insert and hidden lockbar limiter
- solid early lock-up
- excellent flipping action thanks to the ball bearing pivot system (after cleaning and oiling)
- extra large thumb studs (they also serve as blade stops)

Cons:
- you need special tools for the screws
- out of the box it needed a little fine tuning (cleaning & oiling)
- sharp edges around the blade grooves and the flipper (10 minutes work with sandpaper)

 I enlarged the cut out on the G10 scale for an easier access to the lockbar

Details:
Blade length: 3.89" (99 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.157" (4 mm)
Blade steel: 9Cr18MoV Stainless Steel (58-59 HRC)
Open length: 8.58" (218 mm)
Closed length: 5.19" (132 mm)
Weight: 5.18 oz (147 g)
Handle: G10 
Lock: titanium frame lock with steel insert
Carry: right hand tip up

Because of a new stupid rule of Aliexpress the sellers are forced to photoshop the locking mechanism on the folders. So don't worry these folders come with solid frame-locks!

This Wild Boar version is discontinued but you can buy the new high quality Green Thorn version of the F95 with dual track ceramic bearing washers on Aliexpress: ***HERE*** 

The Green Thorn version comes with milled handles:
