    Is it just me, or do the top two handles look longer than the other ones?

    If the hole on the bottom is for the latch why it is on the same face that the pivot hole ?

    I love the blade design, but seems like they could be focused on an edc here. Hope not though.

    I'm okay with edc. I have had my 32 for almost a year and even though it could be a bit heavier in the handles it is a perfect edc knife. I would like this new knife to flip awesome but if it's a great knife then it's a great knife.

    Interesting the weight to handle length puts it right in the middle of the barebones and the alphabeast but you could by both of those knifes for $600. Kinda steep on the price.

    I would imagine it will street for quite a bit below 600. Regardless, it's high.
