Mine arrived today!
It seems a perfect sample and I am very happy.
The fit and finish is great, and I love the ergonomics.
The scales are beautiful, and the semi-polished texture is comfortable and fitting for this classy knife.
Mine is a free dropper. However, I agree that the size of the cutout and strength of the lockbar make it less of a fidgeter than a PM2. After an hour my index finger is fatugued and I’m noticing I really need to jam it in there. Guess my finger needs to toughen up!
I think that, for me anyway, this knife strikes a good ballance between jewlery and utility. I see myself putting it to harder use than some of my other beauties, which will make me like it more in the long run.
Thank you Mr. Phillips and Mr. Glesser. I made a good choice with my limited knife funds.
