Thought I'd add for those that are wondering, I've dealt with their customer service a couple of times and it's top notch. I even made the mistake of replying to an email after a very very bad day and was a little more abrasive than I normally would be. Of course I apologized, but their customer service didn't seem to bat an eye. They just took care of me. That's why I'll not hesitate to buy their products if I like it.

The flipper tab on these reminds me of the Blink Blades Sphinx, and the action on the Sphinx (I have 2, 1 tanto and 1 regular) is amazing! It fully opens everytime no matter what. I've even tried firmly pressing down on the lock bar while pressing down on the opening tab as lightly as possible and it still fully opens without any problems. It's hard to believe that it's a manual flipper.

Kinda surprised how simple the clip is, The Sumo has a really beautifully machined titanium clip, although the position of it could be a lil better as it tends to dig into your palm if you put a really firm grip on it.

Hey MC. So I know this is totally off topic of the knife you just posted now, but I’m just now getting into the “Spyderco” knife world, and I like the Para 3, but the Manix 2 a lot more. The new Para 3 Mod on KnivesPlus today with Acid wash and Green Micarta/Blk hardware, do you think that’s a good buy? Or way over priced?

How long did it take to discover what your "grail knife" was?,and does it have to be attainable price wise?,or like I would never be in the position to spend $1000 on a Rockstead or something so that can't be my grail knife?

That blade is sweet! I love the design and shape! That's awesome that it comes in a neat box too! Great video!🙂

Not really a fan of the Sliver, it’s just not for me, design wise! Actually all Hoback knives aren’t for me as I can’t afford them! I hope some budget friendly options become available!
