    DLT sent me a nice one ! Para 3 LW and absolutely love it and it will be a great carry on my bike . Blade centered and great action out of the box .

    I may have just lucked out but all mine are very smooth and the detents seem perfect. With that said, the Redencion flipper is pretty great and probably the best action of all of them. These are my first exposure to Reate though, so...

    Nice. I'm Jealous. I "preordered" one from BladeHQ but it's still not in. Can't wait though.

    I think you’ll be very happy :thumbsup:
    It’s so light but feels solid in hand and of course Spydie razor sharp out of box .

    I have a few Microtechs but this is my first custom Mafione and Strider (and integral) all-in-one. Should be a safequeen, but it's too cool to not carry. This is all I need is to start loving Striders too.

    IMG_3375.JPG The sage 5 showed up in the mail today which replaced my old sage 5 that had a good 1/8" of blade worn away from sharpening. Love compression locks.

    The more i see this little Guy the more im thinking about getting one. I sold my para 3 s110v blurple bc i prefered the PM2 but this LW just might be the ticket with a more rounded handle as opposed to the blocky feel of the G10 version and a lighter carry. I do hope they will come out with an s30v or better steel version but ive never had any issues with BD1 either.

    Got the same one in the same color. I love the Rat 1 & 2. Best budget knives in the game, still.

    I know huh?! I know it's not G10/CF/Ti scales/handle. It's not frame/Axis/assisted/button lock. I know is not "super steel". I know it's not supposed to be, this good. But...it...just...is. BTW...Rat1 in D2, same color...will be at my door in a few days.

    I wanted to start shrinking my collection this month, but “shrinking” took an unexpected direction.

    It's great. I can't believe how much I love the I and II. I picked up a couple of Ganzo clones and they just weren't the same.

    Those look great. Killer lanyard colors too. Been thinking about another Hinderer. I only have the Full-Track and Half-Track. They're great and all, but I think I'd like something else from Hinderer better. After my last purchase, I'm forcing a brief hiatus until I'm sure my upcoming anniversary weekend is a success. I spent WAY too much on my last knife. :)

    That Strider is sick. I just picked up my first Mafione custom and it's a Strider. I'm wondering why I'd held off so long. I'm really impressed. I heard the new models are better-made. Any truth to that in your experience?

    Cheburkov Scout and Russki:

    If anybody is curious I could do some brief reviews. I might add a Toucan to the collection as well.
