    I've got its bigger brother, the HB-01 made for Beretta.
    I'm not a big fan of liner locks in general but the quality is on point.
    It's a nice knife and with all the titanium, it is lighter than it appears.

    I had an HB 03. It's an excellent knife. The liners are ti, very close to a large 21 in size. It's a very strong liner lock that locks up like a CRK.
    It's been out of stock at the only US dealer for several months, the same one that sells carbon fiber scale CRK's.

    I had an HB03 M390 but was not happy with it and sold it. For the pricetag the fit and finish should have been better, there was a gap between the scale and the liner. Moreover, i didnt trust the lock, a gentle tap of the spine against the palm of my hand and the blade closed.
