    You are really cruel... I had seen that one and passed it. But seeing your pictures I'm suddenly way more tempted.

  2. I'm so weak... Just had to order a blue one.
    I thank you, isti, but my wife does not ;)

    1. I could resist for a couple of months but in the end I had to order it. I haven't regretted it. :)
      Please send her my regards! ;)

  3. I looked again and apparently I ordered a different version than yours: the seller's pictures don't show a insert in the lock bar.
    We'll see how it goes.

    1. Mine could be a newer version.
      Anyway the original one doesn't have a lock bar insert either.

  4. Agreed, that seems to be a newer version, and most sellers have pictures with no inserts.

  5. Mine seems more green than blue, as the seller's pictures go.
    Possibly a different make?

    1. When they were released on Ali at the first time there were 4 color variations: grey, blue, purple and green. After a while the green one disappeared and they intruduced the dark bronze color one.

  6. That's what I suspected... Well, it looks great and I got it for cheap (15% app discount) plus I don't think the lock bar will wear that much on a gentleman folder without flipper!

    1. The green color version looks nice! I wanted to order the green one when they were released the first time. Green anodized titanium is quite unique, it needs high DC voltage (> 100V) to achive it.

  7. And it arrived today... great gentleman folder, thanks for pushing me over the fence on this one! I did a quick review, but my pictures aren't too great (the light coming on the side and being too harsh, I guess).

  8. I found the TiSpine for € 250 here, what's the sense to pay just a little less for a copy?

    1. That's around $285. They sell the high-end Kevin John version for $209 shipped (without any discount at the moment) with M390 blade. The original with shipping would be over $300 for sure and there would be a chance to pay extra VAT/duty too depending on your location. Another aspect is the balde steel: ELMAX vs. M390.

      I wouldn't be surprised if the Kevin John version was better than the original like the whiskey in the movie "Black Cat, White Cat" you know. :))
