Just got a f3 shirogorov ,not all shirogorov knives are created equal, take my advice, stay above the thousand dollar range in a shirogorov, the f3 would definitely be a decent user, if you are willing to pay 700 for a work knife.

One of my Grail knives. For a blade that size, I've never seen anythig as smooth! Does Shirogorov make a thumb-stud knife. I'm a flicker, not a flipper. LOL The detail is perfect! Even the back of the pocket clip is milled to flow with the rest of the pattern.
I read somewhere, that the Russian Spetnaz (sp?) are issued this knife. Do you know if that's true?

I have 4 Shiro's and they are incredible. That being said, Andre Thorburn's knives are in a class of their own. If you ever feel like getting your mind blown, try a Thorburn out. Love it, and keep up the great work!

Finally got to sit down with my cosmic brownie in one hand and my shiro in the other to watch the review for real. I think you 100% nailed it and were able to verbalize the emotions and irrationalities like "it's the best" perfectly. You definitely did it justice. 10/10 would recommend sending MC your insane knife purchases to help justify them in your head.

Yeah, there's a tool they sell for a whopping $200. Be careful with a flathead or it puts divots in the screws. Also something I didn't realize was the loose bearings. I took it apart to clean (probably sat in the KC warehouse too long and had old, thick oil) and ended up with bearings all over. Only lost one, haha. Still super smooth, though.

I own a Shirogorov Neon Zero, and it is Tony the Tiger Ggrrrreat! It really is an astounding piece of work, action only paralleled by a Holt Specter or Grimsmo. My only complaint was the pocket clip was so tight I had to do some work to make it work.

2 days after getting my first hinderer (Eklipse Gen 3), it already has rust on it. Also, it’s slightly off centered, and I don’t have the $60 tool to fix it. Probably my worst purchase so far.
