To be honest, I never knew the brand, it was suggested by ReaperWorx but damn what a knife it just feels so natural in your hand. The mechanics and how swiftly it opens is just something, I have not yet experienced. I have had other brands before and getting used to one-hand opening is never a problem but getting used to one-hand closing always took some getting used to but this knife, I was opening and closing with one hand 10 min later. This is my first flipper though so that probably has something to do with it. One and only downside and this is just me and for all I know its was made this way for a reason but the flipper mechanism is so so smooth that my finger slips off it sometimes if I don't get the right grip. Some serrations on it would help me. Oh yes before forget most importantly it is HELLS sharp straight out the box. IT WILL CUT. Titanium so yes it's light in your pocket.
