Let me start by saying I did not buy this knife, instead it was gifted to me as I am "into knives" by a friend when a renter left it in his place when they moved out.

I was a one knife kid. I had one sak until I snapped the blade. Had one Opi till I snapped the blade. Had a first blood replica I broke in 2. Along the way I learned the limits of steel, and after stopping to abuse and break knives the collection started building up.
My Lionsteel SR11's clip doesn't press against the handle, if I open it without the clip touching my hand, the clip seems to act like a soundfork. The shock from the blade against the blade stop resonates to the clip, and it "rings".
