Full dress 4" version of the discontinued Madd Maxx
Just returned back from spa so it's been tuned, refinished, and sharpened by the maker

Stainless damascus front side and lock side with scalloping on the inside edges
The front has a presentation grade white mother of pearl overlay that also has a presentation grade brown-lip mother of pearl inlaid into it
The entire overlay has been contoured and scalloped, it shimmers in the light and the color changes with the angle so my camera can't do it justice
Rich bronze anodized hardware, standoffs, and deep carry clip
Fit and finish is perfect
Centering is dead on and lockup is tight

3. Curtiss Knives Large F3 - near mint - $625 --> Traded
This one is an early F3 so it's more of a handmade custom than the current ones
There is no finger choil on the blade, there's a small thumb-ramp on the blade, and the jimping is cut differently
2-tone M390 blade with a reflective stonewash on the flats and a working finish on the grinds
Tumbled ti frame
Because there's no forward finger choil, the edge gets closer the back of the frame where the sharpening choil starts
Looks to be centered but might be a hair off to the front side
Lockup is secure and won't fail on you but there is a slight bit of lockslip if the knife is lightly opened, with a good flip it's solid
If you lightly open it, you can push the lockbar over another 5% or just any pressure on the lockbar makes the slip go away
Action hasn't changed too much over the years, runs glass smooth on his SPOT pivot, fires open, and drops shut

4. Les Voorhies Dagger Flipper - very good condition - $400 --> Traded
Full custom from Les
Well designed IKBS flipper with a double-edged dagger blade
You can't cut yourself on it when closed, the part of the top edge that looks exposed is dulled
Working finish blade and frame
Carbon fiber backspacer
Has been used so it shows some wear
Action is very smooth and the detent is tuned to make it a snappy flipper
You have to try pretty hard to get it to not open all the way
The lockside is drilled for a clip but I didn't get one with it
Locks with no play in any direction
Centering favors the front side but won't rub unless the pivot is loose
