This little thing is just right, from design to execution. Every outside edge has been rounded or chamfered, including the liners, which are also polished. Jimping on both the upper and lower sides of the blade. It looks a little odd when closed, but flip it open and the lines are clean, the taper of the handle smoothly extends along both the spine and cutting edge of the blade, with just the flipper protruding. The flipper is large and flat enough that you can use it as part of the grip. The detent ball rides against the "hub" of the blade so it climbs an incline rather than an abrupt step making the action that much smoother. Some makers have put a tiny little chamfer at the edge of the blade to make it easier for the ball to climb onto the side of the blade, but on this knife the edge approaches obliquely and the edge is chamfered. Double smooth. This little knife flips like nothing. There's no play in the blade and with the bearing pivot it still flops open and closed on its own. The liner lock is so easily accessible across the recess in the front scale without having to have made the recess about the size of half dollar. I wasn't sure how thick the blade would be but they came in perfectly proportioned at 0.117" for this stout little knife. I thought the nail nicks (who knew they were on both sides of the blade?) were a "cute" addition, but they're actually useful. You can pinch the blade between thumb and forefinger and flip the handle down and it just pops open.
The blade is tumbled, not one of my favorite finishes, but they've taken the time to go back and line sand the flat sides of the blade. There's a lot of surface area, it makes for great contrast with the flat grind to the edge of the blade and the engraving/laser etching really stands out against the finish.
There's a lot packed into this little knife.
One question: Is the inset Finch emblem fired glass? I don't want to go poking at it too hard just to find out.
And after I talked to you, it glows! Very brightly!!
