I was looking for a new EDC folder and browsed around for ideas/info. Brownie was most helpful and on his blade forum the MOD Trident caught my eye. I researched it some more and decided to get one. I stole one for $102.50!
It arrived today and I am most impressed with it's construction and ergonomics. The Trident came sharp enough to shave with no effort. The metal pocket clip looks strong. I can't wait to field test this beauty. :cool:

I have to say, it's very intimidating.

Well, I'm loking around for a good folder, and that just became one of my options! Where did you get it for $102?

:scrutiny: Looks like a knife to me, not a trident :D

Is that the same MOD that Blackhawk owns?

Good score, I think you are going to like the knife the more you use it.
One of my all time favorite linerlocks.

Used it over the Holidays to open gifts, slice meat sticks, trim/fit gift assemblies.
I really like how this knife feels in my hands. Overall I'd say it's a tad bit smaller than knives of the same class, but that doesn't hurt it at all. The knife feels very secure and with the notches on top of the blade I was able to do some very fine work with it. Although used mostly to cut plastic, tape, paper, and some light wood (not a real heavy test), the knife still shaves hair like it did when new.
