Thanks for the review! I hope someone reviews the dual bladed one. It would be nice to see the size difference.

luv that rounded back spring!    would like to have the two blade micarta version.  the wharny is my thang.

The best thing about traditionals is that they don't freak people out when used in public. They just don't instinctively read as weapons unlike a lot of modern pocket knives. Flip open a ZT in the lunch room and someone is liable to call security, take out a GEC and people will look at you as a trustworthy gentleman just like grandpa.

I like the looks, and have come to trust Lionsteel, and it fits my recient "affair" with slip joint traditional knives. Even the squared off shape is appealing (brings to mind the Emerson A100) …all good. If this becomes available in my area, I might give it a go.
Very good and unbiased review, and maybe a bit careful also!

I have one nit-pick . . . the handle is completely symmetrical, and I have to sort of do a double-take to see which way to open it.
FYI – the 2-blade version is ridiculously fat, I sent that one back.

There is something very appealing in kinda of a slick way but at the end of the day for a user knife with squared edges just goes against the grain of what a knife needs to be to melt in your hand, a classic example of design over function, but I still like it, Lol, I typically avoid olive wood because unless you can personally select it you can commonly get one that is very bland looking, yours is very nice in respect that it has some figuring.
