Mine came today, luckily. My mailman handle me a pile of junk mail and said "have a good one" and I was like "I think there is supposed to be a package". He looked for awhile and found the small box. Whew!
Overall impression is this thing is AWESOME! Makes for a great gentleman's folder with the smooth Micarta and the M390. I am glad this is a production piece, but I feel like it is going to still sell out of the first run immediately and folks who miss out will be waiting months for the next run.
It slides out of my pocket much easier than my FRN or peel ply G10 knives, which makes me a little nervous for losing it and not realizing it. I still would love to see a sprint or a production variant in coarse matte OD Green Micarta with Sleipner steel, but I will definitely hold on to this one as a great little gentleman's folder. Well done Spyderco and Lionsteel!
Aaaaand...I just got my first knife cut in years closing this thing.
Gotta remember to choke up all the way with the index finger as there is no room for error like on the Delica, Endura, Native, etc! I figured it was only a matter of time before this happened since I am so used to closing the ones I mentioned, but I didn't think it would be so soon! I was already in "user mode" at the time. I had just opened another box with it and was closing it unconsciously without thinking about it. Doh! Luckily it is small and nothing a little super glue couldn't fix!
