A friend gave this to me today, in a sealed box, etc. and I am kind of delighted with this cute little knife. No idea, really, what I have here, so if you can provide details, great. Granted I have huge hands, but this is really a very small blade. I can not manipulate the thumb stud, my thumbs are too large to get a good purchase on the stud, but the flip lever is good to go.

I'm going to sharpen it up on my SharpMaker. It's not very sharp, frankly.

I suppose I can easily use this to open letters, packages, in a pinch, cut the end of a cigar, etc.

It comes in its own little sheath with a pocket clip and it appears actually to have mother-of-pearl inserts. Pretty cool.

Awesome! So many people watching this are going to be so jealous of you! I love the sheath, that’s a great pocket clip for it too!

I have one of those. Model #1610. It is a little different but basically the same knife. Mine has a pocket clip on the knife and the scales are a different color.

I like the knife but I wish it a little bigger.

That's a cool little flipper:thumbsup: The smallest folder I have a Kershaw Ember which seems cheaply made. I definitely have more respect for that 1615.

Centofante - Italian: from the personal name Centofano, an omen name composed of the elements cento ‘hundred’ + fante ‘child’, presumably bestowed in the hope that the recipient would have a large family.

That is a sweet little blade.

Don’t everyone knock me at once, but I’ve never been a big fan of Onion’s designs...but Frank Centofante, brilliant designer and knifemaker. RIP.
