  1. I like mine. Same negative as you on weight, plus the flip action isn't always reliable as the detent is fairly week. Overall, amazing for the price.

    1. But it's still light weight compared to the Medford Praetorian clone which weights 335g. :)

    2. True. I have that knife too. Horribly impractical, but a lot of fun =)

  2. Why not the titanium version? We all know how much you like titanium ;) You seem to buy almost all the knives I've been checking out. If I see something I like I usually wait for a bit and see that knife here in your blog :D

    1. Great minds think alike. :))
      I had to save some money to buy the next knife in my wishlist. ;)

    2. What's next? I just picked up the KJ Shirogorov Fliper 95 Pattern T

    3. I have that. It's good, but the blue + CF is still the best version IMO :)

    4. But this is the new version with different blade shape and two-tone handle finish.

    5. That is a good point. I wonder how much difference the changes make.

  3. Im just waiting for a titanium decepticon clone that would be anodized blue. There is one gold/blue but cant make up my mind if I like it or not.

  4. The black stone wash looks great!
