Congrats RobDigi, and welcome to the forum! You've got an excellent little tank of a knife there.
The titanium on the lockbar is softer than the steel on the tang, so you won't hurt the knife steel. Cycle it a few dozen times and it'll probably work its way to an equilibrium. Razzle's advice is good.

The Techno's handle is similar in dimensions to the PM2 (handle thickness and width), just shorter. It's about the same grip length as a DF2. It might end up being a three-finger grip for you, in which case a lanyard would help. My hands are small-medium and I could get a full grip on it, but I rarely ever held it that way in use. The Techno is perfectly shaped for riding a finger along the spine, with the thumb to the side.
