Just a bit disappointed, I send two mails to drop, to show that the blue luminous backspacer as mentionned in description is more glow. They don't give me explication.

I don't understand what you're trying to say? There are no pics of the spine in daylight, but that's pretty much what I expected it was going to look like

Great reviews in the review section. It seems like the folks who have received and used theirs love them and are really passionate about them. Lots of great pics!

Tashi Bharucha isn't from a knife background, he's from a designer background, so when I saw something that he intended this as a folding food prep knife I was kind of like 'whatever, it's a slip joint'. I mean, designers, right? Live in their own worlds. Mine arrived today and now that I've held it I get it. You can throw this in your pocket like a gigantic folding pocket knife and it'll do that -- it's put together really well. Another thumbs up for RSK management of quality. But holding it in the hand -- yeah, it's a folding chef knife. Kinda like a slipjoint Spydiechef. Most slipjoints have a nail nick or something, this doesn't, and that's a bit odd. You end up smudging up the blade opening it. But you'll be smiling. Also not for nothing? But brilliant ergonomics on the handle.

There's a little bit of gap. I haven't taken it apart to see exactly how the pivot works -- but it's not a standard leaf spring setup.

Not much gap. Some, tho.

Drop invited me to join the discussion while I wait until next year for shipping. Am I supposed to consider praising them for shipping and fumbling methods. Should I ask them to clarify just how I am supposed to join something that I have already joined? Psi.

Perfect modern slip joint except for the size. Make this 2/3 or even 3/4 of this size and I'd buy it in a second.

Well there are others in the size you want, I actually like that it's big, good for food prep. Not too many slipjoints in this size so I appreciate this one.

I love the design sense of this knife. Clean, simple, calm lines. No unnecessary protrusions, buttons, studs, etc. It might not be as practical without a clip, but this is truly a knife designed with visual aesthetic in mind. It has a very Japanese design sense to it, IMO, which is very cool. I just sprung for one. I think it will be a great addition to our family road mess kit, for cutting things like hard sausages, fruits, sandwiches, etc. The larger blade is perfect for that.

Compared to 3Cr13, it's fabulous. Compared to 8Cr13MoV, it's very good. Compared to CPM-154, is similar. Compared to M390, it's OK. I had a Shun Nakiri in this. I was very pleased with it. (I gave it to my son-in-law.) I have a Spyderco Endura in this. Another very good knife. I see no reason to shy away from this knife because of the steel. Unless you want to attack cement blocks and assault steel cars. Should this be the case, run from this and get yourself a Cold Steel in 3V.

More infos and pictures here : https://amare-knives.com/messer-blog/creator-tashi-bharucha-design Tashi Bharucha has designed a foldable Santoku in his well-known and great design language, which is second to none. The mechanism is Amare Knives' own A-Joint system, which enables the blade to be held open and closed with two different spring forces. The A-Joint is hidden under the handle scales and is absolutely maintenance-free. The prototypes shown here now go through a test phase and then go into series production. Then it is up to you how you prepare your food while traveling and in your holiday home.

Source: https://knifenews.com/amare-knives-continues-to-grow-with-latest-releases/ Hennicke reached out to Tashi Bharucha for an Amare design, and the final product is the Folding Creator [see feature image above]. Like many collaborations between makers, the idea stemmed from an admiration of the other’s work. “I was watching Tashi’s career from designer to designer and knifemaker, and the design and work he made is great,” Hennicke tells us. “So at one point it was interesting and important to ask him and he said ‘Yes.'” The lines of both the blade and the handle should be familiar to fans of Bharucha’s work, and Hennicke tells us the Folding Creator is designed to function as a folding food prep knife. The santoku-style blade and high, arching handle that puts the user’s hand out of the way for chopping are keyed into this end goal. The Folding Creator will be the first Amare product not designed by Hennicke himself to use the A-Joint mechanism, a patented slipjoint design comprised of an angled, two-prong spring, Each of the two prongs are set at different tensions, which makes an A-Joint knife easy to open, but harder to close. Hennicke says he wanted to use the A-Joint in a larger-than-expected design. “The A-Joint really works well at any size, and it is not always necessary to have a locked-up blade in the open position.”
