    well @blackmetal1181 the fl mini is awesome!


    i like how it is very low key around the pivots, not much excess blade material

    almost doesnt need a zen pin stop in the open position because its so compact, low key, tiiiiight

    i can post pics against my hellcatV2 to explain

    i wonder what that effect would have on the hellcatV2

    personally between the two i prefer the fl
    mini. the hellcatV2 is a bit more on the handle bias side.

    i like the super rounded handles with zero holes. its very solid feeling against the fingers. super nimble. i always wanted a bali with solid handles and no holes

    the blackened finish is durable as fuck, good texture

    the straight spine to the tip gets me sometimes when passing over my wrist/arm.

    to see pictures of the fl mini doesnt do it justice. its a big knife. very sleek and hides it well. i like the balance, its perfect

    easily one of my favorite knives i’ve ever flipped and glad i have it.

    if you are reading this you should own one too:hypnotised:

    Making this blade for full length mini this one is the template of this blade. IMG_20200919_140954.jpg IMG_20200919_141021.jpg
    Think i should call it something like hellcat slim or something cause its same size as hellcat v2 just slimmer
    And mini for the smaller 4 inch blade version to make it less confusing.

    Blade and handles look superb. I just can imagine. This is just my style. Mirror polish blade and some nice ano like that blue one. Holy shit I know it would costs a lot but I'd buy it if I had the money.

    So, is that made with thinner stock? Or, just a slimmer profile?
