    If only this was UK-Legal...

    Posted by AndyW on 24th Feb 2016

    This is a short follow-up to my earlier review. For one reason or another, I never quite got around to giving this to my French friend as a gift and so have been using it myself around the house. If this knife was UK-legal, it would without a doubt be my EDC when I am in the UK. It is just such a handy blade shape that holds its edge well, and the handle is perfect for everyday tasks. In addition, the pressure of your thumb on the back of the knife when using it actually helps the backspring to hold the blade in the open position, making it very secure. Come on, Heinnie, please have a chat with Robert David and get them to make a UK-spec blade length in this knife...

    Big & well made

    Posted by AndyW on 25th Jan 2016

    I received this knife this morning and it was bought as a gift for a French friend of mine, so the review below takes place in the absence of any usage... Pros: - Absolutely beautiful to look at it - Fit and finish is superb and the detailing on the back spring and the beginning of the blade spine looks very good - Blade came shaving sharp OTB (OK, so I had to test it on my arm hairs to check) - Good blade steel (12C27) that should keep a decent edge and sharpen up nicely when it needs it - Slim blade profile should make for a great slicing blade. It is also thick enough to be pretty strong - the slip joint is very strong (think Boker XS territory here) - the handle is very slim when looking to it from the side but surprisingly stout when looking at it from the top, making it very comfortable in hand Cons: - The mechanism was pretty rough when I first opened the box but it smoothed out quickly after being oiled with some Blu Lube There is, however, another question that needs to be asked: Would I ever actually carry it? Other than buying the knife because it is simply a lovely piece to look at, I am really not sure where this knife would fit from a usage point of view. It is too big to be UK legal but yet doesn't have the security of a locking mechanism. I would therefore carry one of my Benchmade, Emerson or Zero Tolerance knives, that have either an Axis lock or a liner lock, long before I would ever carry this when I am home in South Africa. I have given it five stars for the positive reasons I mention above but I am not sure that I would ever actually use it on a regular basis...
