Flat head screws are against my religion! Can you imagine slipping off that hardware and scratching it and the frame in one heart braking millisecond.

After owning a ZT 0609BLK with it's see through pivot I learnt a valuable lesson on proprietary hardware.

Still a gorgeous peice though!

That very first click on the slide-shut (way better than fall-shut) about snapped my head back and instantly had 100% of my attention; I wanted to hear it over and over and over

and over

It's a nice knife. However, if it's more than $450… NOT worth it. The Kunwu Orion is basically the same and MUCH less. I'd go with the Kunwu. It would have been nice for a link. All your links do not go to this particular knife. Let us in.

Just got a Shiro F95 with black micarta inlays. It’s a safe queen and it’s $700 I couldn’t imagine $2200 oof it’s beautiful but my wife would use it on me lol

I would love to see that knife after someone carried and used it for about five years, like it was designed for. Probably would still look special.

Can you shed some light on the SBD tempest. If it’s anything like the typhoon, I don’t want to miss the pre order

Sleek as heck.
I imagine this would go so well with one of those custom 2K+ USD Ti flashlights and a similarly priced Montblanc pen.

you know that nick shabazz video with that yellow hype knife that keeps bouncing around from 'fall shut' on plastic bearing cages.. yeah no.. try glide shut on roller bearings..

My wife said “ what are you watching with all the commotion” I said just another knife channel!! She said “what’s he freaking out about” I said this beautiful knife then she just said umm 🤔! They will never know until you get in the knife game /gang !

.. in Mother Russia.. knife make you.. you don't make knife. Shirogorov laugh at American "precision machined" titanium
