needs jimping on the flipper tab
the flipper tab is small compared to the rest of the knife. I guess they wanted to keep the lines simple and clean, but this dampens a fast flipping action as the index finger tends to slip when trying to defeat the new and rather stiff detent. As far as the scales....I have no way to determine real materials, but it looks and feels like a cleverly tailored carbon fiber sticker over G10. None of my carbon handle knives feels or looks like this one, and a closer look reveals a thin between the surface and the rest of the scale, with no "waves" to be seen at the scale edge. On the positive side, it's a slick looking blade, s35vn (hopefully) with a nice action once you become aware of the slick surface and adjust method; I didn't have the patience for it and dremelled out 4 lines on the contact area. It's also quite sharp considering the tall saber grind and thickness, got a nick on the side of a finger that didn't hurt, felt more like light pressure until I saw the blood flow after a careless pull from the left pocket. I guess some pressure was applied to the tab and the tip was barely presented to make a very clean cut; after stopping the flow, I had to press on the sides to see the cut. Overall an impressive looking blade that could be done better.
