    If you don't mind, I'd like to know your impressions of that Lionsteel. Several of their knives have caught my interest.

    Fortunately for your wallet these were pre-order only and the extras at all the dealers who had exclusive variants are long gone! :rofl::(

    The fit and finish is great. It’s tip down only but that works for right rear pocket carry for me.

    I will report back after I’ve had a chance to use it for a few weeks. I plan to sharpen it up this evening.

    Lionsteel did the production on my Spyopera and that knife is fantastic

    How do you like it?

    I've been tempted for 20$ at Wallymart locally

    I think it will be a nice little tool. I will use it in a couple of weeks when we hike the SNP.

    I really like it. Lionsteel makes quality knives for sure. I do have to say to me it seems small enough to be better off without a clip. Gentlemen do not clip knives to their trouser pockets.

    I got this one just about the same time as the 118 I showed earlier.

    New knife hat trick! Three days in a row, Day 2! Got a grail coming in tomorrow, and finally fixed the fact that I don't have a pocket knife (weird, I know, but for a bit there I thought I could get by with just fixed blades, and I really found that the 3-4" pocket folder is a requirement.

    An inexpensive Boker Plus Intention II. It's a decent automatic with a D2 blade. Not recommended due to poorly designed pocket clip that leaves far too much of the knife riding outside the pocket.

    Mine opened in my pocket the second time I carried it. It ruined a new pair of shorts and, luckily, I didn't get cut or ruin my car seat, any furniture, etc. I hate using the "safety" button on an auto, but I guess you need to with this one.

    I'm really hoping someone will come out with an aftermarket deep carry clip for this knife!

    I’ve not had a chance to completely put this through the ringer but I think you will appreciate the fit and finish on their knives.

    For size comparison, next to a kershaw blur and a custom. It's BIG!

    I love that Wharncliffe edge! I don’t think I’ve ever seen one where the blade ends so abruptly. Very neat design. Can you thumb and spydie flick it with the rectangular cutout?

    It's 90% of the way to a cleaver blade more than a Wharncliffe, really. It would be Spydie-flickable by most people judging by the videos everyone else who owns one posts, but I've never mastered the technique. There is a flipperless variant for those who exclusively prefer the Spydie flick.

    When I first looked at it I thought somebody broke the blade.

    How do you like the angle the blade cuts at? It’s a cool looking design.

    Just got it yesterday, haven't played with it yet. Bringing it to work with me as another guy I work with is into knives also.

    When I texted him the pic, I think he was more excited than I was!:D

    So I told him that I would bring it so he check it out.
