    Looks great! Congratulations on the score!
    I hope that the blade length is not like 10" with that one.

    @Lapedog I find tip down works well with a front flipper as it seems as easy or easier to position it for quick open but maybe thats due to where I tend to carry.

    Check out this Suwanee River Sodbuster front flipper. It is kinda done in that old slipjoint style too.

    Lol, Yeah I seen that he does make some Large Folders. This one looks to have about a 5" or less handle. I will post pics in hand when it arrives. I took it as about large sebenza sized. The video of it was removed once it sold. I managed to,save the pics before hand though.

    I carry this 3" Shamwari regularly and have come to really like the front flipper. I hope to see more front flippers.

    Yeah, Google shows nothing.
    I am quite intrigued by it.
    Does anyone have one?

    YouTube-do is a good alternative to Google-fu. Here's a video from the maker, of (I think) the very same knife.

    Why's your arm and hand so small?... and your deck.

    Fortunately, none of those belong to me. I can only assume that some random, passing by oompa-loompa got ahold of someone's pocket knife.

    I finally followed up on some old advice I got on here and purple loctited my Kizer Feist.. Only, with my caveman hands and lack of finesse, managed to reassemble it to include bad rub near the pivot. It's sat for 36 hours, any suggestions on fixing it?

    Grabbed a JD van Deventer at NYCKS today, and got to meet the man himself!

    Also, very impressed with the busker. It has an absolutely amazing opening action. I may be chasing one soon
