1 people found this review helpful...not a tool-like gem. Luxurious and drool-worthy but sturdy and useful. Lovr the blade profile. Got the replacement screw from CRK, which is necessary if you want to use this knife without the pocket clip. Interestingly, the blade is more perfectly centered with the screw in place than as shippe with the pocket clip. Anyway, this is a perfect light EDC/"dress" knife that will not cause any stares or screams (though maybe some oohs and ahhhs). I have a small insingo in S35VN and wanted to go all the way, so I got the beautiful, but not crazy-busy ladder damascus. The snakewood inlays are very snakelike, with beautiful figuring on both sides. This is surely a once in a lifetime purchase for me. Opening can be done slowly with just the thumb due to the "grip" provided by the damascus, but for me it is not a flipper. Easier to open by pinching the thumb nicks on both sides with thumb and index finger and finish opening with thumb (I am right handed), but can do same deliberate "pinch" opening with left hand. This arrived in 2 days frm KnifeArt, to New York State. I like having an appropriate pocket knife on me at all times, and this will be used for those special occasions.
