    Nice review jj! I've just been waiting patiently for a tanto with inserts. Watching all these go by has been hard. :bwah:

    A flipper model does sound pretty cool though. I love all the options!

    Less is more:
    To make it less top-heavy, put a swedge in the blade or re-profile it into a pronounced clip point.
    If you stick with ti, do without the holes along the channel, turns out in this case you don't need them.
    If you switch to ss, same amount of holes. This might make the end product cheaper(relatively based on what grade of ss you use) which would be a plus.
    Latchless is a good move.

    Thank you everyone, I'm working on the flipper model.
    I plan on reworking the flipper until it is right. Even if it takes doing several redesigns

    An update on the flipper version, I looks like i am going to do a solid handle with a diamond texture on it the handles will have much more weight, the total weight will be 5.0-5.1 ounce. I have material coming and will post some pictures after the first set of handles are cut

    This flipper will have
    -hardened stainless bushings lapped to +001
    -press fit hardened stainless pivot pins
    -hardened stainless tang ping
    -blade holes will be lapped to 10 micron for smooth action
    -hardened stainless washers

    Solid handles with this texture should work well. Looking forward to seeing how it turns out.:thumbsup:

    That is a lot of ti, the thing to remember with these is one pound of titanium end up as around three and a half ounces between the two handles. This is enough ti for fourty knives
