Ordered from Amazon mid Dec. Would that be new maker's nice piece?
Edit to add:
It arrived. A nice package indeed. The spine is more straight than most of available picturea. Perhaps as result of CQI?
Lockup is tight, no up/down nor side play. Pivot isn't gritty at all, the edge is shaving sharp (yes, I tried shaving my chin)
. Can't flick it yet, need to practice more. The pivot torx is same size as the rest, so I assume it's to make one tool fits all a la Sebenza (?).
Feedback: the clip screws were so tight, after heating the clip & screw on hair dryer until it's too hot to touch, I managed to unscrew 2. 1 of them rounded immediately. Of the 2 taken out, one has some whitish residue on it that made it very tough to unscrew (white loctite?) Perhaps the maker has to use less strong adhesive, as some might want to move the clip. Didn't try any of other screws as there was no immediate need.
I have to find a way to unscrew the last one, as I want to move it to lefty carry, perhaps converting it to flat driver, but I might end up destroying it altogether.
