    That looks sick, and I love the tanto. Not sure how those handles would feel for flipping, but they look good, thats for sure.

    Wait, it's missing the duel thumb studs. :devilwag:

    Bet it comes in at a fair price point as Balis go these days. I would possibly snag one for kicks :devilcorn:

    Eh. I think as a group we need to be more fickle and critical.

    Meh, handles look too "gimmicky" to me. Reminds me of the CCCs you see in Chinatown.

    Blade is a winner, though. I have a soft spot for tantos.

    Edit: on second look, this spot bothers me. image.jpg

    Titty Twister Tony...lol

    Look at the blade. There's nothing to it...lots of straight lines. No curves or anything spectacular. Easily reproduced. The handles look like a Bear & Son.

    ***I don't know the specs or the quality...strictly from the picture it looks cheap

    No one said it was. It was at least worth posting for others to see though.

    Quartermaster is a split off from mantis, which explains the design, however I think the quality is above mantis which isn't saying much. The few I have handled seemed well made but style over substance for sure.

    all of the above needs fact checking and is my opinion/ impression

    worst case it ends up being a EDC rather then a flipper. It dose seem stubby but it has barrel spacers but with the design there is still a good amount of weight at the end. Time will tell. How much do QM knives generally run? I can't see this being over 100.
