I got my Tripwire from Dwaine a couple of days ago, the knife is a beast! Here are some pics next to a SMF for comparison. My knife is all bead blasted, with subtle green/black G-10 side. I will go a little fancier next time, probably satin on the blade grinds. Fit and finish are excellent, the knife opens smoothly, locks up solidly, zero blade wobble. Check out the thickness of the frame lock, it's as thick as the blade on other knives. The blade was pretty sharp when I got it, though a few minutes on an ultra-fine ceramic got it screaming sharp. Hard to believe that a blade that thick could get that sharp. The knife carries well for its size, though I think that the pocket clip is too long. Seems to take forever to come out of my pocket.
