SP199TIP: C199TIP Nirvana
Spyderco has teamed up with Peter Rassenti, a custom knifemaker from Canada, for another amazing collaboration; the Nirvana. Produced in Taiwan, this integral handle titanium folder is more of a mid-tech piece than a production one. It has all the feeling of Peter's custom model without the matching price tag. The blade is made from S90V stainless steel with Spyderco's trademark Round Hole that is actually part of the original design. The handle is machined from a single piece of 6Al4V titanium with a broken glass pattern finish. The handle is thin, durable, ergonomic and absolutely beautiful. Jimping on the thumb ramp and near the butt end of the knife is perfectly executed and really locks this knife into your hand. This is Spyderco's first integral handle design and it's simply extraordinary.

Reviewers stop using lubricants on your lockbar.
You can't completely fault the knife company for making this knife the way they did without a steel lockbar insert If you've been putting lubricants on the d**n lockbar. The reviewer that said he used oil, galled the lock face for sure. You use compounds or graphite like mentioned but not in conjugation with oil ever. Be careful the oil doesn't run down the blade onto the lockbar either. I'm sorry this isn't super relative to this knife. I just don't find it fair to fault the knife design when it's user error that's not allowing proper break in. The knife is an awesome design wit some great features for sure. There's a reason why not everyone has had a bad experience with this knife, the ones that haven't are the ones maintaining their knives the right way and breaking them in the right way. The 4 and 5 star reviewers

Cons: None
Amazing Integral
Absolutely amazing action with great lockup, perfect centering, and no stick. I'd prefer a full flat ground or hollow ground blade but it still cuts well. Incredibly smooth with fall-shut closing. In handle retention isn't as high as a flipper would be but I've had no issues with that. Get it while you can.
