This knife caught my attention from some research I was doing. And I’ve never held a NL knife in my hands before. When I received the knife. I was very impressed. The front flipper action is one of the best by far that I have used. The closing action is smooth and flawless. I have had 100 knives with M390 steel but I’ve never had a mirror polished blade as perfectly polished as this one. Their knives are on the expensive side but you truly get what you pay for from NL. The fit and finish, the quality of all the parts is instantly revealed as soon as you open the pouch for the first time. Some knives are just sexy and this knife is a total knock out. The only thing I can say is really a good thing not a bad thing is that the blade is so so polished and shinny I’m probably not going to use it on much more than paper and cardboard.
