Aluminum handles are such a huge turn off for me. Every freakin time they get super slippery and I just pull out my swiss army knife for the heck of it. Yes, I'd rather have plastic than Al handles. Also, am I the only person who isn't a fan of button locks? They always get in the way and I always seem to unlock the knife when I'm using it (normal tasks, like cutting fruit) That being said, asides from the Al and the button lock, this is a pretty good deal, made in US by Protech (pretty sweet), 20-CV (my top 5 favorite steels) and it has that huge front choil like the falcon! That being said, still not joining the drop because of the Al handles. IF this is as smooth as they claim, I'm going to have non-functional fingers in about 5 days.

It's more grippy than the blasted finish on the Buc and Dogtooth, about the same level of texturing as the original Crux and Falcon runs.

I think I'll stick with G-10/CF/FRN.... it's getting pretty cold where I live, and metal handles are pretty uncomfortable. Either that or I'm getting old hands =/

It's a Pro-Tech, they're a known quantity when working with aluminum. And I've got one of the preproduction samples to get familiar with. It's a great knife and the two main criticisms of it don't apply to the real thing. The texture is grippy and the handle is strong. Someone was suggesting that it would be flimsy, and that they don't like knives that have flexy handles. Well it doesn't have flexible handles and it isn't smooth.

Wow lucky man! Good I’m glad we get to hear from someone in our immediate world on this knife ... I never had a doubt it was quality myself but glad everyone now got to hear it from you with one in hand!

Yeah it's a surprising and super nice chance to get a pre-production example in hand so far out, I'm pumped about it even beyond how much I like the knife. Pretty much all the points have been hit with it, right down to nesting the pocket clip in the scale. Plain, I think in this case the cheaper one is also more my speed.
