New arrivals: QM Qwaiken steel handle, AirBorne and Voltron V17

Quartermaster Qwaiken style folder with steel handle
The budget version of the Quartermaster Qwaiken with steel handle,
ball bearings and 9Cr18MoV blade

You can buy them on Aliexpress:
QM Qwaiken 9Cr18MoV: ***HERE***
QM Qwaiken M390: ***HERE*** 
Dicoria carabiner - fidget spinner: ***HERE***
and Zanflare F6 brass flashlight at GearBest: ***HERE***

Because of a stupid rule of Aliexpress the sellers are forced to photoshop
 the locking mechanism and the "blood grooves" on the folders.

- AirBorne compact sized flipper (ball bearings, D2 blade),
- Voltron V17
Qwaiken, AirBorne and Voltron V17

The AirBorne is a decent compact sized flipper with a full flat ground D2 blade and ball bearings. The Voltron V17 feels like a much more expensive folder thanks to the nice fit & finish, polished G10 handle scales, brass pins and satin finished bolsters.

  1. The Voltron looks like a classy little gentlemen's knife. How is the action on it? PB washer? Smooth? Strong detente flicker or weak detente slow opener?

    1. It's a fine little folder for sure. It reminds me the exclusive Fallkniven PXL folder a bit. It comes with teflon washers and the action is quite smooth. It's a slow opener, I like it that way. I think that suits better a gentleman's folder. I'm planning to order the wood handle version too.

      This is my 3rd Voltron folder and I'm quite pleased with all of them. So I have two more Voltrons on the way to me. :)
