ZBAMS3M390: MS3 Manhattan Special Folding Knife, M390
Michael Zieba Custom Knives
The MS3 Manhattan Special is the perfect refined everyday carry knife. It has even won the heart of our company owner, beating out all the other knives in our building to be his personal carry. This slim folder is super easy to carry with an eminently useful blade shape that is ready to slice like an X-acto knife, snap-quick action and one of the hottest new steels on the market. 

The slim, contoured titanium frame is now extra light due to some hollowing inside. It slips into the pocket with ease and is extremely comfortable to use. The thin scalpel-like Bohler M390 blade can perform every task you need of it and won't draw any looks when you flip it out. 

This EDC masterpiece is outfitted with a blasted backspacer and pocket clip in addition to a replaceable lockbar insert/overtravel arrestor. The flipper tap, spacer, and thumb ramp are jimped for more purchase and the blue titanium hardware sets the aesthetics off nicely. It features improved lockbar access, edge profile, and includes internal lightening pocket to save weight over previous MS3 iterations. We can't recommend this lightweight, fast, ergonomic, easy to carry, and enjoyable to use knife enough. Get one while you can!

Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Powdered metal developed for knife blades which provides good corrosion resistance and very high hardness for excellent wear resistance during hard use cutting.
Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.

Pros: Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Ease of Opening, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Refined EDC Quality
High quality fit and finish, snappy deployment and easy unlock. Fantastic clip that needed no adjustment, not too tight where it will wear out seam on pocket, but grips enough that it will not slide out. Blade comes from the maker able to shave hairs from back of hand. Elegant thin, tapered handle, but full-hand length for great control. Titanium scales have a buttery smooth finish and a subtle curvature that must be felt to appreciate; they have a worry stone quality that compels me to handle this knife even when I am not using it!
