    Yeah they had that Viper Krav Maga folder in a few colours at my local knife shop and I was interested in it. I almost picked it up, it is a very cool knife. I actually liked the Viper Keeper folder better because of it's straighter handle and more inline point for pikal edge in strikes. I find "drooped" handles mess up the way the point is presented in pikal edge in unless you cock your wrist weirdly. The keeper had that double quillion which makes a great flipper and great wave.

    However the liner looked very thin on the keeper for me. I was honestly worried if it was strong enough.

    If I was going to get a Viper I would probably want this one. It is STUPID expensive though. Beautiful knife!!! Viper Italo

    Yeah , not bad actually . But displaying a symbol that you'd have to explain to most people would be similar to having to explain a joke . Now maybe a nice skull with a big screw imbedded or something akin might be more self explanatory !

    The liner on the keeper was as thin as on this linerlock version of the Italo. WTF!

    Well , these days I try real hard to avoid " dangerous places extreme " and most would be over budget for me . But nice . The wife says I'm "allowed to look" !

    Those paper thin liner locks look worse for wear.
