I agree. It is beautiful. It truly is lightning fast. It is spring loaded both opening and closing. So I do have to be careful closing it, it is not a big deal, but once it is with-in about 2" of closed the spring closes it. It is not super high speed on the closing, but it comes very sharp.I would love to try out the claim for its "lightning fast one-handed "Assisted Opening" mechanism.
If you get it, let me know about that part!
I love how it looks; it is beautiful! (I have enough tactical, utility knives.) This looks like it could be a good EDC self-defense knife for those special times and places when nothing else will do...
Edited to add: I just watched the video in the link. Wow, it is barely legal; it opens as fast as a switchblade.
I would really, really love to have this knife someday!
RE: the part that I bolded above... I noticed that in a different video that I watched, the spring on closing seemed to activate in the last inch or maybe half-inch, which may be much better than the 2" closing clearance...??I agree. It is beautiful. It truly is lightning fast. It is spring loaded both opening and closing. So I do have to be careful closing it, it is not a big deal, but once it is with-in about 2" of closed the spring closes it. It is not super high speed on the closing, but it comes very sharp. The "Release" that locks the blade open, is a little hard to reach. It really is a beautiful and evil looking knife. The blade is intended to look evil, but it would actually work well for skinning big game. Worked fine at opening four large boxes today from Amazon.com. I paid $79.00 plus $3.99 shipping.
This is "NOT" the type of knife I ever purchase, never. But like you I watched that video about 15 times, and there are at least a dozen other videos, I watched several times. I am not into tactical knives, or fantasy knife fighting.I watched that damned video three times already.
Nice.. Blade design wouldn't, personally, be my 'EDC choice', but yeah, could certainly see it making quick work of Rabbit-prep, et al.. And, re: 'Evil looking', indeed, I could Easily see it tucked into a 'garter' of the likes of someone like, saaaay.... It really is a beautiful and evil looking knife. .. but it would actually work well for skinning...
Not sure. Something he learned in military training & psychological warfare. I actually thought about it and sort of see what he's saying. If I looked down at my arm and saw it filleted I might be more shocked than if I saw a 9mm entry wound. But I guess we won't know for sure unless it actually happens.How would he possibly know that?
