Description
TM1221: Vallotton Signature
Timberline
 
Lightning fast assisted opening folder with liner locking system. We have seen few assisted openers faster than this series. Handles are G-10 shaped to be very confortable to grip. Steel liner flexes over to lock in the open position and is easily accesible to move to unlock. Dual thumb studs allow for quick ambidextrous opening. Deep pocket belt clip. This is a great series at very reasonable prices.

Another High-value knife
I added this folder to my collection of folding tacticals, and am glad that I did. I made a mistake when I ordered and did not pay attention to the size! Make sure you order the size you need. I have big hands, and I accidentally ordered the small model - KC took care of it and sent me the large one as soon as I notified them of the error. By "High-Value" I mean you get more than you pay for. This model is a great design, works perfectly well, is made of quality materials, and looks to be well made(put together), and is relatively low in cost. I'm glad I finally got the large one (and it isn't any too big for me). For the price, you have no excuse for not having at least one of these - they really are a great design and are well-made.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Handle Material
Opening mechanism leaves much to be desired
The quality of the blade is excellent. Stands up to the shaving/prying/cutting I have to do on the fly in my telephony work. But the assisted opening is difficult- it flies open, but the studs on either side of the blade are hard to manage whether you try a wrist-flicking, singlehanded open or a "pry open" with two hands. The knife is sturdy once opened into its locked position. This knife would have benefitted from just being a standard folder/lock. You can't even elect to use it that way (ignore the assisted open mechanism entirely) b/c there is no notch on the blade to pinch & pull it out. BTW the belt clip is strong as heck -great for denim pockets but has to be handled with care if you're wearing khakis or pants of thinner material.

Timberline Vallotton Medium
I use this knife as an every day knife. it is very sharp. And SUPER FAST. The medium version is a nice size. The pocket clip is a little long and i have gotten it caught on somethings. but all in all great knife
