Review: Green Thorn F95 R19 vs F95 Nudist

Green Thorn F95 R19 vs F95 Nudist
Have a look at my side by side pics of the latest 
F95 R19 and the legendary F95 "Nudist"

The main difference between these two are the weight and the detent strength - flipping action (not mentioning the blade spine and the handle pattern). The F95 R19 weights a bit more (4.326 oz / 122.6 g) and it has a slightly stronger detent and snappier flipping action. Both of them represent superb value for the money.

Check out my video previews about them HERE and HERE. 

Pros:

- perfect fit and finish in every detail 
- dual track ceramic bearing washers with steel washers on the titanium side
- super smooth opening and closing thanks to the ball bearing pivot system
- comfortable flipper design
- solid early lock-up without any blade play
- dead centered, light stone washed D2 blade with perfect grind lines
- excellent cutting performance
- despite the size they weight only  4.326 oz  (123 g) and 3.98 oz (113 g)
- elegant EDC friendly slim design
- easy and simple disassembling
- high quality carry pouch

Cons:
- none

Details:
Blade length: 3.78" (96 mm)
Blade thickness: 0.157" (4 mm)
Blade steel: D2 Stainless Steel (59-60 HRC)
Open length: 8.74" (222 mm)
Closed length: 4.96" (126 mm)
Handle thickness: 0.52" (13.1 mm)
Weight: 4.326 oz  (123 g) and 3.98 oz (113 g)
Handle: TC4 titanium
Lock: frame lock with steel lock bar insert
Carry: right hand tip up

You can buy them  on Aliexpress:
