This folder has seen a little pocket carry but has been an unused trophy. The blade is .12" thick and 4" long, made of VG-10 steel. Liner lock. Best action I've run into in a folder-- glassy smooth pivot, perfect blade centering, zero blade play. Fit & finish is truly remarkable. Design by master knife maker Kirk Rexroat. At $130, I'm asking far below what you could buy one for (retail seems to fluctuate between $179 and $198). I'm based in the Portland metro area.
