I have been carriying my new Timberline Vallotton Discovery lock for about two weeks now and I have grown to love it. It is lighning fast, even faster than my Kershaw Boa. It is a small knife (about 7 1/4" OAL)and it sits comfortably in the pocket as well as the hand. Shaving sharp and the locking mechanism is great. It passed the same spine whack test that the Boa failed. Anyone else have some input on these excellently designed knives? If you haven't played with one yet, go try one out, they are good knives at a fair price.
