    Saw these at Blade. The show special was $315. They come in clip and tanto blade. There was a tiny amount of wiggle but not very much. To be truthful I did not delve into it very much assuming it would be on the website but it isn't at the moment. I snapped a couple of shots.

    They were showing the OTF at shot show in Feb. Same handle but different blade. The blade on your photo looks much better.

    I was really excited about a new OTF option, but the blade-to-handle ratio is way off, to my eye.

    Have d/a otf lost there luster for the knife community? It looks interesting to me but I dont find much about them. That usually means it is either not good, or people are too busy w/ balisong :unintroduced:

    Haven't heard much about them myself.

    I hacked Doc's PB pics above so they'd show...

    Well they look nice, are available, have decent reviews, Im just wanting some first hand experience. I know Hogue is MORE than a legit company.

    Thanks Greg. PB did a number on me. I have photos everywhere that are useless.

    If you want to do the hack thing Doc, just copy the non-showing pic's URL with a Right Click and add ~original to the end of it. Then it'll show when you hotlink it as usual.
    Right Click one of your pics above and take a look at the URL I did for it to show.
    Works wherever you are...

    It looks better than the ultratech but not as good as the scarab? Or am I wrong on that?

    I lined up the handles with a ruler before I shot this photo. The camera is closer to the Scarab so it looks bigger, but the blade lengths are all withn 0.04" of each other and you can see how the tips are basically in a straight line. Now look at the handles. The Hogue is definitely out of proportion compared to the other three.

    Care to repost it...?

    Hmmm, it's a long-ass link, but it seems to work on several computers, even ones where I've never signed into Google, so I'm not sure what's wrong. I added the link at the end of the post so you can try that.
