A real step (including price, too)
This is a real improvement over the prior versions of the Zieba Manhattan Special, including the Shinola version. Fit and finish are great as always, and the blade is incredible (Hakkapella, which is different here in a good way compared the example on the Zieba site). The handle is hallowed-out to make it lighter (might have been true of the prior versions), and there are subtle cut-outs/relief at the end of the lock-bar and opposing scale to make closing the knife easier (that wasn't on the Shinola version). Just really well made. This is a tiny knife, however, with an even smaller blade (but still a usable length), so it's a gentleman's knife at best. Not for someone with large hands. Dollars-per-inch, it's a horrible deal. But for fans of small knives, it's a unique knife from a small US maker, and that means something to me.

Perfect Gentleman's EDC
When the blade is closed, the only thing that sticks out is the tiny flipper tab. Else, it is a very beautiful, streamlined, slim and lightweight carry. The action is incredible, as it should be on a gem like this. The Damasteel blade demands respect and admiration; it's not only gorgeous to look at, but sharp and ready to handle all of your edc tasks. Simply a functional piece of art.
