Great knife, but one thing....
I sent for this since somebody stole my small Drifter in a federal courthouse. Was really looking forward to the larger blade....loved everything about the small Drifter and a larger version would be perfect. When it arrived it looks beautiful and definitely sharp...but when I was playing with the action opening and closing the knife I found one very critical important difference from the smaller drifter...the frame lock does not have the jimping (thumb grooves) and flattened area that you use to close the knife. It has only the same shape as the rest of the frame edges...mostly sharp, making it VERY tough on the finger (usually thumb) that closes it... after a few times closing it my thumb became sore. I sent the knife back since this was not going to work for me (and I have tough construction hands). Everything else is great about the knife, but for the life of me I don't understand why they changed a proven design like the smaller drifter.
