Love the look and the handle of this knife. Blade shape is great. Unfortunately I'll never buy it because the blade is TWICE the thickness it should be with an awful shallow grind. Very poor design on the blade, great otherwise.

Love that musical te-click*. I'd drive my wife nuts with that thing. *te-click*… *te-clickte-click-te-click-te-click-te-click-

It's funny how much sound is a part of enjoying a knife. The general public would probably think we are nuts…. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Very nice knife but it's friggin' yooj, the liners should be embedded. And give me a real finger choil, not some tease that doesn't really do anything.

I like the profile, the size, the price, the carbon fiber, everything except the clip problem and the made in China.

G'day Nick, a sterling design IMO. I'd be taking a file to the underside of the clip and not overly enamored with crud collecting holes but everything else negates those aspects. It is a bit over my price range but certainly worth the dough. If I have a windfall anytime soon, I'm in. Cheers Duke.

What's the point of reviewing a knife with dimensions that you know are going to be outside your preference? And then citing to those dimensions which are known before you even pick up the knife as "bad". Just seems silly to me.

I have a couple of their other pieces. They have a great cutlery shop in Carmel, CA. Carmel Cutlery has been in Carmel for years, the latest owners have really taken the game up a notch. They offer a couple of Laconico designs and have a design relationship with Olamic. If youโ€™re ever in the Monterey Bay Area, this shop is a must! Thanks Mr. Shabazz!

Knife going on a diet. I'd pay to see that. I'd like to see you collaborate with a knife maker to customize a knife like this to fit some of the faults as you see them. Then send the resulting knife back to the original designer for a reaction video. I'd expect 1 million or so views. Thank me later ๐Ÿ™‚

Really nice price for contour cf and m390 in a knife with decent f&f. Too bad about the misfit clip, but I think for having around the house it's ok.
