Is the clip bead/sand blasted? It looks darker and less shiny than the wire clips I have. I like it!

Looks like a really well-made knife, but I don't understand the logic of putting such a thick blade in such a small knife.

I stumbled into Plaza Cutlery today and was enjoying just browsing around that very cool store. Nothing really struck me as a must-have, so I was heading out when there it was - the Techno in the window. Now, I had never even heard of this one before but it caught my eye and I almost got whiplash as I swung around to take a closer look. I asked to see it and in the millisecond that it first hit my hand, I knew I couldn't leave the store without it!
I have big hands and yet it fits great - love the size! I love how stout it is - the blade is very thick and yet it feels totally usable. This thing reeks of quality - fit and finish is spectacular. I'm usually a bit leary of the Taiwan thing, but not anymore - this could be custom, it's that good. Something this good SHOULD have the origin plastered on the blade...they should be darn proud of this one. I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of the best designs I've ever seen. I was convinced it was an Anso design until I got home and did some research.
Anyway, I could go on and on about it (and I rarely go on and on about anything), but I'll stop here before I sound like an advert. But I really cannot imagine anyone being less than thrilled with it. Yes, the price is a bit steep, but like I said - it's pretty much at the level of a custom, so I'd say it's well worth the price. This one is definitely a keeper.

A little too small for me, but it looks pretty neat.
I have had mine in my pocket since it arrived on Saturday! It will be awhile before anything replaces it I am afraid.

This looks to be a really cool knife. Love the stonewashing.

Ugh, my local shop received a Techno the other day, and I come in today and literally like five minutes before i walked in, someone bought the [only] Techno... So, I bought a small sebenza instead (just kidding, well I actually bought it for real, but that was actually planned). I would love to pickup a Sage 2 as well as a Techno soon. I'm in a titanium frame lock mood, and I need something with a Spyderhole now!
Can someone post a picture of he/she holding the Techno in their hand? A comparable photo with a delica4 or something similar would be greatly appreciated for size comparison.
Here you go. Crude shots. But I just took them .
In handle cutout.
I just got my Techno and think its perfect for a robust small blade - even liking the blue spacer much more than I thought I would. Now I just want spyderco to bring out something similar with a 4" blade.
Im hesitant as well. I read elsewhere that this guy was disappointed with the small size. I kinda want to see one in person first i think before i order one.
