Anyone see one in person in regard to thin or thick the tip is?

Haven't handled one myself... but at 3mm stock for the blade, should be fairly thin and slicy. And the flat grind, rather than hollow, should keep it from being TOO thin at the tip Just my guess

Well I've been pondering buying a Bestech for awile now. This one really looks cool and it's a great price to boot. How do you find the action on the ones you own Kavik?

Most are really good, if you're asking about how snappy they deploy and smoothly they shut. My only semi-regular complaint, about 35-40% of the ones I have can be whipped open. Some could use a stronger detent if that's a concern for you

Yeah I just didn't want to buy one if they sucked at flipping. Sounds good to me I think I'll try one out. Thanks. πŸ‘ŠπŸ˜Ž K

No problem. Here's hoping this is one of the stronger detents πŸ‘ If not, you'll see my review and what might be done to improve it, if you like to tinker πŸ˜‰

For sure! Do you have a YouTube channel of your own? Or did you mean the review your going to leave here at MD?

Nah, I'm camera shy lol I just post the reviews here. Here's a link to a post that has links to a bunch that I've reviewed so far....it's far from complete though, i have a bit of catching up to do from purchases in the past 6 months or so. But it'll give you a general idea of what I think of the brand πŸ‘ https://www.massdrop.com/talk/8620/anyone-else-caught-the-bestech-bug-here?utm_source=linkshare&referer=94FC7J

The blade tapers down really thin. I definitely would not want to put any stress on the tip. Here's a silhouette next to a Manix 2 (Manix on the left, Barracuda on the right, looking down at the top of the knife).

The blade has a very high flat grind throughout and is very thin behind the entire edge. You can also sort of see how the grinds (both primary and secondary) are asymmetrical toward the tip of the Barracuda (not a big deal considering how thin it gets up there, and how inexpensive the knife is). I'm pretty happy with the knife overall. Except I paid $20 more than what Massdrop is offering it for!

Thanks for sharing that.... Looks like it'll be a beauty for delicate slicing tasks up in that tip area

Excellent info, thanks. I'm pocket clip conscious and it's hard to see, but I think it's probably typical here: -deep carry with screw heads not recessed and therefore clogging the space for pocket edge material. Can anyone offer info on the jeans pocket destruction issue?

The clip screws do stick out. I haven't had an issue though (jeans and sweatpants).

Looks to be the same basic shape and exposed screw heads as some of their other clips. I've never had an issue with them either

It does look decent. Thanks for the view. I wish my ZTs had that room!
