Wolverine, I completely agree with Spark on this. My Synergy is a beauty. I bought mine at the Blade Show in June. The edge is sharp as hell and the handle is super comfy. If you have any type of problem with it Jim will always help. I call him about the lock and he called me back the next day. I sent him the knife and a few days later he called me back and explained to me that I have added too much lubricants to it. He took the knife completely apart and cleaned it. Then tested it again. I am tell you this is a man that stands behind his product. It's a great knife.
I just got a SpeedTech a few days ago.It has a swept Elishewitz ground blade
#9 out of 25.I was pleasently surprised.I did'nt think aluminium could feel that good.I got the nandina color handle.Even though it feels very smooth,there's no problem with the grip.I'ts contured perfect and it has small file work at the the front and the back of the scales.The persian style
blade was as sharp as I've seen out of the box.The tolorences on this knife is right up
there with C.R.K. and MicroTech.The opening
of the blade is as smooth as I've felt.The
button style lock is solid,and you can hear that reassuring "click" when opening and closing.I was surprised when the instruction
paper said do not lubricate the lock.I wrote
to Jim and he told me If the lock ever got dust or dirt use an aerosol break cleaner.I guess this is compressed air?I dont think there's much of a chance of accidental closure,the button is'nt recessed but the handle sort of forms a "lip" around the button.The clip rides high on the pivot side
and keeps the knife in the pocket well.All in
all I'm very pleased with this knife.
