It came in yesterday. The first thing I noticed was a strong spring and a stiff opening blade. The spring is not nail breaking strong but close to it. What saves it is a deeper than average nail nick. The knife came to me very sharp but I have the feeling that was Scott's doing.
The next thing I noticed was a big beefy blade, sporting a larger than average clip to a very sharp pointed tip. My first thought was, "you would need to be careful with that tip because it looks like it would be easy to break off if you were not careful how you used it".
The back spring sits level with the liners and frame with the blade in the open position.
But with the blade closed, it does not sit flush but slightly depressed. Makes me wonder if they're all like this or if it's just this one.
I don't recall seeing a knife whose back spring stopped short of enclosing the bottom pin. Odd.
I'll carry this for a couple of days, report back, then send it on to it's next stop, Colonel26. You can suspect to see it the first part of next week, Cuz.
