Just got my D'Allara Drop in the mail.

I'll write up a review in a few days, but here's the biggie:

The D'Allara now works for those of us with fat fingers and short (or non-existent:) ) nails. It's still not quite as easy to disengage as an Axis - I got a BM 710HS in the same box :D - but only because the smooth ball bearing doesn't grab your fingers the way a textured stud does. And actually, that may be largely due to the brand new knife lube still coating it as much as anything. As a guy who literally almost could not disengage the original model, this is an incredible improvement.

Serious winner. Out of the park. I'm talking serious knife nut competition for the Griptillian here, in the "great user, value price, fun new lock" style. And this is from a guy who owns five Spydies and twenty BMs.

Sal, as soon as sure you're done tweaking the design, this bad baby needs a sprint run in ZDP. :thumbup:

Hi Nick,
I agree 100% with your accessment of the D'Allara Drop Point. I have had mine for a while now and I love it! It is a great knife. IMHO it easily competes against the BM Grips!! I think the knife is a real steal for the $$. Great knife!

Thanks for putting it out there for me to like, Sal. :)

Quick note - indeed, once the excess film of factory lube disappeared from the ball, it got very nicely easy to close. Still not QUITE as easy as an Axis - that smooth surface thing - but something that requires only a little concentration, not real effort. :thumbup:

Little booger opens like a dream, though. The positive pressure keeps it secure against accidental opening, but does a Brownie pop like butter.
