QAQTR12LT: QTR-12lt General Lee 2 Folding Knife, Limo Tint, Designed by G&G Hawk
QTRMSTR
 
The General Lee 2 from QTRMSTR is affectionately known as the "pace car" for the knife industry in 2016, released on January 1st. It features many design innovations Grant & Gavin Hawk are known for in a unique design that you probably haven't seen or held before. It's quality through and through and truly an awesome blade.

The QTR-12 is a collaborative effort with the Hawk Knives design team from Idaho City, ID. The full-titanium rocker chassis is unlike anything that's ever been made in the history of tactical knives. Each piece is individually milled and assembled by hand to exacting tolerances. Each part has been cut by wire EDM, milled to shape, black coated, then smoothed by hand, for a perfect fit and durable finish.

Out in front, QTRMSTR has installed a black coated CPM-S35VN sheepsfoot blade with blood grooves and milled holes that glide effortlessly with the help of its design-integrated flipper. The dual thumb studs provide ample purchase and double as the blade stop when in the open position.

Beware - no knife in the world has opening/closing action like this one. It operates more like the suspension of a Formula One race car than it does a traditional folding knife. Its action is fascinating, innovative and tough to put down.

About the Ceramic ORB Pivot System

The ORB Pivot System is a sealed ceramic ball-bearing technology that is widely considered the second generation of an open-bearing system that is being used by some manufacturers today.

The ORB's advantages are plenty: dirt and pocket lint cannot impede the track of these rollers as they're encased. The ball-bearing system tightens the tolerances in and around the pivot of the folding knife. As a result, the lockup is vault tight, yet the rollers allow for almost effortless rotation.

The lack of 'play' at any point on the rotational axis of the blade is truly unlike anything currently being made at this price point in the United States.

Fascinating Knife
My initial impression of this knife was that it is indeed one intimidating looking piece of engineering. Second, I was struck by the opening and closing mechanism designed by G&G Hawk. Since it is different than most other typical knives out there, it does take a few tries to become proficient with it. The flip on the blade is by far the easiest way to get the blade deployed, and with some practice I have found that it can be closed with a ring finger while using only one hand, by placing the finger on the pocket clip. There are a couple downsides to the opening of the blade: since the handle is of open construction, placement of the hand is important in order to keep the rocker that deploys the blade from pinching. The other, also pointed out in most videos, is that the thumb studs aren't the best option for opening the blade. But aside from these, this is easily one of my favorite knives by far. I own the QTR-12 and the QTR-11, so I'm definitely sold on this design. And Quartermaster and G&G Hawk have pulled no punches with the construction and finish of this knife. The blade is very durable and indeed razor sharp. Overall, this is a thing to behold and striking in its design. The handle ergonomics are quite comfortable, with no real hot spots generated on the hand and is easily carried in the reverse position as well. The jimping is quite tactile, and the pocket clip is reversible. With a lifetime warranty covered by Quartermaster, and the quality you get at this price point, you really can't go wrong with this knife.

Cool mechanism and quality knife, poor ergonomics
The locking mechanism is great to mess around with, especially if your a fidgety person. The overall quality was great and the blade was razor sharp out of the package. Not a great edc knife though, the edges of the handle are pretty sharp and it is quite large.
