Review: TwoSun TS162 Micarta - a decent sized flipper with great ergonomics

TwoSun TS162 Micarta flipper
Another excellent & affordable flipper from TwoSun with superb ergonomics

Pros:
- excellent fit and finish & solid built quality  
- great ergonomics
- perfectly centered blade with a nice satin finish
- excellent slicing performance
- smooth opening and closing thanks to the ceramic ball bearings
- excellent snappy flipping action
- solid lock-up without any blade play

Cons:
- the exposed corner of the lock-bar could be more rounded (it's an easy fix with sandpaper)
