If only it had a slicier blade, a ring lock, and maybe a rounder handle. Now that would be a knife.

😂

I just want you to know, MC, that you have single handedly made me go from being pretty meh about Hinderer, to having plans to shop for one early next year!

I'll be checking out a Hinderer soon..not a slipjoint..but I'll definitely be owning one in the near future.

The more I look at this the more I kinda want it! Not gonna lie though I wish they had done a different, more modern steel with a vintage style finish but the O1 mixes things up a little and definately fits with the theme. Good video as always man!

Hinderer have said that disassembling this knife voids the warranty. I'm not ok with knives that cost so much that the company doesn't allow you to take care of yourself.

I have this knife. I love the color scheme on it. The green, bronze and brown appeal to me. I bought it just because of its beauty.

Half-stops aren't necessarily an indicator of quality. Rough Ryders and some Victorinox have them. It's just a matter of preference. If the tang end is squared off, you will feel the half stop as it clicks into place with the backspring. If it is rounded off, there will be no half stop it should feel smooth all the way through closing.

Love me a hinderer, I just picked up a harpoon spanto in the stonewash dlc finish from the first run and am absolutely loving it!

yay, a hinderer that I can legally carry (with pre-prepared "reasonable excuse" )rather than only in the cabinet and I never knew they came in such a classic look ! the walnut and dark blade are superb looking, could the slippy be my first ?
yes, I think it could. great review M.C

You converted me MC I'm now a hinderer owner and i have a titanium scale coming for my new swedged spear eklipse the sickness is spreading lol
