I got this because I loved the style and shape, I knew I'd hate the steel. I basically bought it to see if the custom Alan Folts knife would be something I'm interested in. The custom versions come in 154CM or ATS34. I didn't want to drop the coin if I didn't like the knife, so I bought the CRKT version for less than $30 including shipping off the 'bay. You can see some of the actual Folts knives here;
The CRKT version uses 5Cr15MoV. Not exactly my first choice when it comes to steel but for the price it will do. Over all a very nice little knife for the price, great G10 scales, decent sheath too. Comes with a nice little lanyard as well.
This knife, (or the Folts version) will serve as a belt worn (centerline) defensive/weapon retention blade. (However I'm coming to find the handle is just too small to get a good grip on.) I am trying really hard to find something better than a Street Beat, and having a very hard time. We'll see how this works out. I'd really like to pick up the custom version, but I'd also really like to pick up a Street Beat. And a Techno... And a new Matriarch... And the Southard flipper... Damn you !!
Anywho, here are the pics.
Size comparison with an Endura. It's actually a very small knife. Smaller than a Delica as well.
On my belt with a Tec Lok. Need to find all the G clips I have lying around here somewhere.
