I'm always telling my wife, "its never the size of the object matters, its all about the effort." Sounds like we're on the same page MC 🤣

The aesthetic is great, the flipper tab not protruding at all when open is even better, I just can't afford it haha.

It is in my opinion that every review should quote A Christmas Story at some point because that was excellent

Yay, Ralphie! Lmao. $345 is not unreasonable. Love a hand-filling knife. Beauteous clip and spacer. It's wanty

I like the XL better. I keep checking on the Impulse 2.0 I think that one speaks to me more than the Axom and Synapse

I landed a gen2 regular synapse in the last drop, and it is a great knife. I Really wanna try the xl someday

Well, I sold the "mini" Synapse and kept the XL, so XL is better 😂. That's the same one I have and I just can't let it go even though I mainly use my XM-18.
