    Good little knife with a quality feel. Heavy-ish weight so you know it's there, but balanced so it's not troublesome. I understand that the thumb-hole sheepsfoot style with blue/gray G10 was discontinued, which is a shame because without the thumb studs you basically get extra blade surface. Custom orders are still available on the manufacturer website for that blade tho. Fun to fiddle with, but it has springs for the axis lock, and I wonder how long those will last. REC shipping was fast and they included a pack of Band-Aids with the shipment! I'll be looking for exclusives In their store in the future!

    Solid beautiful sharp knife, a bit expensive but well worth the money in my opinion. Very sharp, nice feel and fit.
