Have the Carter Trinity and kinda finds the same problem with the shorter frame. Nice price for titanium tho! Thanks for the video

Honestly I was excited about this knife when I first saw it, but after seeing this, I’m gonna pass on it! I appreciate the honest review though! 👍🏻

Not high on the list but i always kinda want one cos i like how it looks, and it should be sturdy enoug for popping of a paint lid and some rough cutting.

The only thing I don't like is the Carter prime billboarding on the side, probably just me though. Beautiful knife otherwise

My major hesitation is because of the D2 blade, other than the loose bearings. I have a enough D2 knives and don't have diamond sharpening stones yet so it'd be a PIA to sharpen along with the whole "semi-stainless" thing.

I love the ano work on the scales, looks like a smoky purple-bronze and it works great with the acid stonewashed blade.

I'd like to own at least one loose bearing knife just for novelty and comparison. That font 🤢 though 🤮. Looks like a powerpoint slide.

Lol your enthusiasm was very subdued. I was going to be shocked if you recommended it. Unpopular opinion…I actually kind of love IKBS bearings.

I’m honestly about through watching YouTube for a month until the same political ad stops 😭 every video and half you can’t even skip smh
