  1. Mine arrived. As you observed, overall build quality is good. The blade is well centred and locks up solidly. The blade is ok out of the box, but far from the sharpest I've seen. Opening and closing are smooth, but not easy. For me this is a two handed open and close. Also, perhaps I've been spoilt by bearings, but there's a lot of resistance in the movement of the blade. Finally, the handle is not as comfortable as I'd like. The first finger gap is too large, making my hand slip back a little. This leaves my pinky finger often griping uncomfortably at the back. Finally, the pocket clip tends to get in the way. Overall it's a decent knife, but this beats the crap out of it: http://steelreviews.blogspot.co.uk/2014/11/total-ko-top-notch-flipper-with-bearing.html

    1. The original AFCK was a legendary folder and it was out of my price range when it was production. Maybe that's why I appreciate so much this high quality homage. :)

      If you like that KO Shirogorov look-alike have look at the new smaller version with a slightly different blade style.

  2. It's not that I like it so much, it's heavy and I'd rather get the WB frame lock version. However, for the money, it's very nice. Do you know if the mini version uses bearings? In that size, I'd probably stick with the Neon.

    1. The smaller version also comes with a ball bearing pivot system.

  3. Is the steel believed to be actual D2?

    1. I suppose it's 9Cr18MoV at least.
