Agreed. I was around when Dwaine started showing his knives on the forums and a lot of people mocked him. Little did anyone know he was on the forefront of an entire generation of overbuilt folders and his fixed blades have skyrocketed in value. I would define his folders as Simian with their off the shelf hardware but once you have one they really are well done, the clip design is simply fantastic and has no hot spots while allowing the heavy knife to stabilize in the pocket. I've carried it while at a couple of shows and let dozens of people put it in their pocket and almost universally the reply is that it does not feel like a 9 pound folder in the pocket. Shame he kind of burned his reputation the last few years and I doubt will be making more knives due to his health, but I am glad I have one.
