    I have handled one and they are Solid.

    I have not used it for anything.

    I would say that it seems like it is worth the asking price but I might not be the best Judge of Tactical Folders.

    Looks like a complete xerox of the Mercworx Clotho.

    I recall there being some discussion about this previously - google it, see if there is any conversation anywhere about failures, warranty hassle, that sort of thing, but I liked the design then and it's still appealing.

    I've owned two and both were stellar. The only thing that kept me from keeping them is the edge. The guy does not put an edge on them worth a hoot and it is a bear to sharpen. Don't rightly know why that is but that is what I experienced. keepem sharp

    I think that Mercworx discontinued this Model and the New Owner of this Company ended up with the design and the parts from the Previous Sub-Contractors.

    I had one. It seemed to be a good knife, however I traded it away and the new owner has it up for sale last I heard.
