I like MK Ultra a lot, been looking at different versions for a little while now and may pick one up eventually.Some folks enjoy their knives snapping open with a thunderous 'thwack' that startles animals from the underbrush and makes sleeping babies cry, but me, I prefer a soft sophisticated 'click.'
In my opinion, a good flipper will deploy a blade reliably with a 'click' rather than a 'thwack'--which indicates that the pivot and detent are nicely dialed-in and the action is not exerting excessive force/shock on the stop pin and other parts.
IMO, the best flipper action knife I own is my little Jake Hoback MK Ultra... *click*

love the Wayfarer 247 and really 90% of all my flippers I think work just great but I agree that there's something about the ZT 450 that makes it the most satisfying to flip! I thought I was the only one that thought this knife had some major mojo going on with it's action! It must just be the perfect alignment of the stars with size, shape, weight, etc. Great choice!I have a grand total of 5 flippers, a ZT 0450cf, a Spyderco Positron, a Kershaw Camber and a large and small Buck Vantage. The Vantage knives are not very good as far as flippers go and the Camber is assisted (so that is cheating). The Positron is actually not too shabby as a flipper but nothing comes close to the ZT. However, I do prefer the Positron and carry it more than the 0450cf (even so, I don't carry any of them all that much).
I'm glad I have a few to choose from as they confirm why I don't like flippers, so I won't be buying anymore anytime soon.
Where are you finding the 3LegDog knives? I've been looking at a few at Blade Gallery in Kirkland, WA. I'd like to see what else is out there, I've never seen the one you posted.
