I bought this knife, #953, from Todd on Dec. 5, 2012. I have sliced paper and shaved arm hair to enjoy the feel of 'sharp', but no real use.
3 1/2" closed, blade is 1/16" ATS-34, hollow ground with Rc of 60-61, handles are carbon fiber, no liners. This makes for a very slender, but strong pocket knife. Weight: 26 grams (28 grams = 1 ounce).
Todd has made linerless knives of Micarta and carbon fiber. They are as strong as knives made with liners. He does not make them very often and when he posts one it gets snapped up even faster than his knives with liners. And the carbon fiber ones are the most sought after.
All snaps are crisp, with half stop and zero play. Blade is very sharp as with every knife Todd has made.
I think this might well be the most slender and lightest weight of any 'real' folding knife. By "real" i mean it is a fully capable folding knife just the same as if made in the traditional manner.
Price: $325, shipped.
I believe Todd's current price for a similar knife would be about $500-$550
