Review: Fura Gear FG-15 heavy duty flipper

Fura Gear FG-15 heavy duty flipper
Robust folder even for demanding tasks

Pros:
- good fit and finish without any sharp edges or corners
- practical, perfectly centered stone washed blade
- massive construction with thick steel liners
- very good ergonomics with grippy handle scales
- convenient to use liner-lock and flipper tab
- excellent smooth flipping action thanks to the ball bearings
- solid, early lock-up without any blade play
- good price 

Cons:
- I recommend to smooth the G10 scale under the clip with a piece of sandpaper otherwise the pocket clip tends to grab the pocket seam
- the edges of the pocket clip are not as nicely finished as the flats
- very minimal detent play
