Seems like a good knife. I don't like the way it looks but that's personal preference. I liked your Al Mar the most, very nice. I think you should try another Spyderco, that one kinda seems like a bottom of the barrel one. Maybe try a little bit higher in price before you discount them.
Constructive criticism- if you're gonna make a video that long you are gonna have to give us other stuff to look at or some colors or something. You might wanna crack a joke or two as well. That's just my 2 cents.

Good criticisms - will work on mixing it up scenery wise to keep things interesting and maybe even try a joke :rofl:

Yeh RE Spyderco I have other knives of theirs I like actually and that was a bottom of the barrel. Living close to their HQ has its benefits in being able to go handle them and then pay the discounted prices online...

Do they make that in a automatic configuration?
You have a good speaking voice. Just not how I would have imagined your voice. I dunno maybe it was that avatar you had for years but I guess I expected you to speak in a Georgian chant... :clownshoes:
As of now I bet you got me wrong

Haha - I've spoken in videos posted on here before, maybe before 2013 though, a few MBOs.

Not available in automatic configuration.

It's an interesting company, seem to do a lot of work for Italian military and some of their other stuff looks nice but yikes in the wallet department.

Hows this for a follow up review?

Lock failed on my whilst setting up for IDPA match. 25 mile drive to hospital, who knows what final bill will come to but luckily no nerve damage.

:vmad:

I've emailed their customer service team. I'm not asking for anything but I'm firmly suggesting they make either a better liner lock or move to a more advanced robust locking system. We'll see what comes of it.

Right now it's going to sit on my desk for now.

I have some liner lock knives but I never use them hard for just that reason. Of all the knife locks (leaving out slip joints) It seems to be the weakest and most prone to do this kinda thing. Sorry, that happened to you :( but at least there's no permanent damage.)
