    Just picked this up at Blade Show West. Man I love this knife. Such a classy folder and great fit and finish. Well done.
    Just found the Auto Version for sale. Purchased and cant wait for it to arrive 20191104_182340.jpg 20191104_182353.jpg 20191104_182418.jpg 20191104_182434.jpg 20191104_182513.jpg 20191104_182527.jpg 20191104_182551.jpg

    Those are definitely good looking folders. That model has been one that I’ve always wanted but never jumped on.

    This thread may change that!

    When I saw it in person. Ed Schemp went over it with me in the Spyderco booth I had to have it.

    I like how the two stop pins on the blade nestle in the handle scales/liners.

    Plus it has that nice sleek profile with an exaggerated spydie hole and gorgeous scales.

    Thanks for sharing pics of yours!

    I've own a manual and D/A Valloton.

    They're among the most attractive knives in my Spyderco collection. A little to wide bodied, heavy and "nice" to carry IMO but I feel very fortunate, happy and proud to own them.

    One of my favorite knives regardless of price. I own 2, and will have a 3rd once my DA version arrives :)

    A few times very close to pull the trigger but never. The blade and the handle are both too thick to me, also making the knife a bit too heavy IMO.

    I picked up a Lil Sub Hilt from Knife Centers for $129 in a closeout sale. I was super stoked because I had had that knife in my "save for later" list on my Amazon account for months where it listed for $201.00.
    The fit and finish is amazing but at the same time I don't want to carry it and risk scratching it up. So it sits in my collection and I flip it open a few times a week and just admire it.

    Auto came in today. Quite a knife. Fit and finish is spot on.

    Zero blade play in any direction.:thumbsup:

    Style wise, it's amazing.
    When I chanced to see one in a local retailer’s display case, I thought I’d be walking out with it.

    It’s build quality is amazing—I mean that!

    But “thick” only begins to describe it—I mean that too!

    Not even the hilt ((drool!)) and polished G10 ((schwing!)) could get me past it’s thickness.

    THICK

    I left without it. :-(

    Who wouldn't want their sub hilt folder to be thick? Gorgeous just like mine. :cool:
