    This is mine. Just got it at Blade. Love the blue and the fit and finish is perfect.

    How's it flip? The tab looks a little on the small side in pics.

    Actually flips great. The IKBS is really well tuned. Seems to be more or less the size of a small Sebenza.

    Great work Gianni and Moletta!! I can't wait for FedEx to arrive on Tuesday! (It takes an extra day to go to Canada for some reason)

    Great little flippers! Fit and finish is excellent. Milling on both the full titanium and G-10 assure a good grip. Nice light, narrow, trim and slim package. The flipper action needs a full light switch motion since the detent is not that strong (the blade will not fall out without the flipper) and the flipper tab is fairly low profile (less leverage). It's very smooth and the M390 blade is centered, nice grind and very sharp.

    Since I have both the G-10 and full titanium I definitely prefer the blade of the G-10 since it doesn't have the hole nor swedge. My ideal one would be the G-10 blade on the full titanium handle. I may try that...

    G-10 weighs 2.37 ounces and the full tutanium 2.87 ounces. Blade length is 2.9 inches.

    Pictures later...

    The G-10 models should sell well since I think the price at U.S. dealers should be around $200-$225.

    Thanks, Ram.

    I wonder why the different blades for Ti and G10.
