Nice work knife!
This is a work edc for me and used for a variety of heavier duty tasks such as cutting leather, canvas, cardboard,nylon webbing & cordura. It also turns sticks into marking stakes. As it's the knife I have with me it also gets used for opening bags & boxes, cutting tape and cord and slicing apples. It was even pressed into service to slice a pizza we had delivered to a training site.The grind makes it a great slicer/parer. The finish is classic mil-tac - tough and kinda slippery with a greenish grayish sorta black. The handles are grippy and comfortable in both open and closed positions with the g10 providing grip and warmth and the metal liners providing rigidity and strength. The red liners add a little extra edge of cool. The finger choil (when opened) and guard are really nice...adding quite a bit to utility, tactile reference and safety. The prybar/tang looks functional though I haven't had occasion to try it yet.The pivot screws needed loc-tite but once adjusted, frog lubed and broken in (took about a week) have held fast with no detectable handle play, quite a trick for a bali.As a bali I doubt it would win any prizes for the ultra fancy flipping some use balis for.That being said...it is a more than adequate flipper for basic forward and reverse grip openings/closings. No issues with the magnetic "latching". No sheath but it's been living in my front uniform pocket with no issues for three weeks now.I like this knife a whole lot and will continue to edc it at work.
