I've seen these, interested in the opinions of people who have purchased and used one. ::nod::

What do I think, you ask?

I’m not impressed. Don’t think I’ll be buying one.

I would rather pass down an old Case or Keen Kutter.

I don't believe I care for one of those.
They buried William in the old church yard, And Barbara there anigh him,
And out of his grave grew a red, red rose, And out of hers, a briar.....
They lapped and tied in a true love's knot. The rose ran around the briar.

They're not for this ole' country boy. More for the Metro Man, who values style over function. JMHO

One, folding knives that have blades that are not fully covered by the handle scare the living heck out of me. Always afraid of reaching down into my pocket and having my finger sliced open.

Secondly, this looks like a Chinese design sold by a French company that was less than $20 at a local department store. And UGLY!

I have several traditional and tactical designs, and I think even the worst of them is 100X better than this thing. It's more of a downgrade from what I carry, not an "upgrade". I carry what works. Personally, if I were even into a knife like this, I'd buy a Toothpick (which I'm eventually getting one that is NOT a fish knife, coincidentally).

Well,,,,,,

At least it looks like it had a half stop, a locking half stop at that. That’s about the only interesting thing I see about it.

Lest my OP is misleading, I did not approve of this knife. I just thought that the knives and the website were just..... odd. This one is more to my taste:

Classic case of an answer to a question no one is asking, or a solution in search of a problem.

OK. To me, it's overpriced crap being touted by lofty marketing claims to people who A: don't normally carry or use knives or B: whose best knife is something from Frost Cutlery.

And, uh cheapest one of this is $30. Rough Rider's Toothpick is $10, $5 more can get many fancy options. I just stick with the yellow versions because I like them, and they tend to be the cheapest.
