Superb design by Nashorn

The Beluga has excellent ergonomics without any hotspots or sharp corners. Attention to details like the hidden lanyard hole, the fuller on the blade, the pocket clip & the liner-lock bar makes it a smart and practical design. 

Check out my video and size comparison
 with the PF929, Sanrenmu Land 910 & Sitivien ST110:

Pros:
- outstanding, practical design with very nice details
- excellent ergonomics
- perfectly centered, robust blade with great cutting performance
- solid, early lock-up
- the fuller on the blade also servs as a secondary opening method
- excellent flipping action & smooth opening - closing
- ceramic ball bearings (+ washers as replacement)
- hidden lanyard hole
- smart deep carry pocket clip design with recessed screws
- set of black screws, washers & micro fiber cleaning cloth as extra

Cons:
- I prefer stone washed blade finish to bead blasted one
