Another solid entry into Bestech's line of D2 flippers, the Texel is a collaboration knife between Bestech and A Purvis Blades. The two-tone finished D2 tool steel blade has a sweeping sheepsfoot design with a large amount of belly and a smooth profile. The blade deploys quickly and smoothly thanks to the ceramic ball bearings in the pivot assembly that Bestech has perfected. The handle scales are made from durable G10 that has a lightly textured finish that gives a solid grip. A large finger groove and smooth bevels add to the already great ergonomics of this knife. A stainless steel pocket clip and extended spacer with lanyard hole top off the features.

The knife is extremely well thought out. Sexy lines, mysterious jade scales, and razor sharp blade which conforms to the overall look of this beauty. It's almost too stunning to actually put it to use.
So for now I will just stick to flipping it and marvelling at this outstanding piece by Bestech.
