    Channel construction, spring latch, retractable clip.

    Looks like a marfione custom but will likely make a cheaper version, I'm assuming they learned some stuff from the metalmark, or maybe it's comparable and the only real difference is that the handles are straight. What is the overall impression of the build quality on the MM? What about the aluminum version? I'm sure they'll offer it in ti. Looks cool.
    Proprietary hardware might be a turn-off, hopefully they stick to torx.
    I remember way back I was saying that maybe the MM would encourage them to do more channel bali's; guess they listened.

    The milling pattern seems pretty minimalistic so hopefully it's not too heavy. Overally, a very very pleasant surprise from Microtech.

    That's pretty good!

    If they keep the price for the T3 around that mark would be awesome!

    *** Still not buying one though :bwah:

    Maybe they'll use a better grade of butter for the handles this time...

    I'm getting a balzano feel on this. Maybe it's the groove on the village, maybe the minimal milling, maybe both. Interested to see happens though

    If bladehq is aggressive with the price point it could be interesting for sure.
