The knife market has long been waiting for an inexpensive unique friction knife.
For 2 days, the knife pretty well raised the money for kickstarter. There are still several samples available for purchase, but the author claims that the series will be very limited due to manual assembly, exactly like retrocars.

This picture shows the solid stainless steel liners. The stop pin is part of the blade, and you can see the liner cutouts behind the rear of the blade that the stop pin rides in.
About a 1/3 - 50% lockup, depending on how hard you flip the blade. There are no cutouts to access the liner lock, you have to wedge your thumb between the stationary liner and the liner lock to unlock the blade. Not as difficult as it sounds.
I like the kwaiken type blade design, but I feel that the Boker Kwaiken is a little too delicate in my large...
Had to settle for a folding knife because I couldn't bring my full Ka-Bar USMC fighting knife which my cadets gave me some years back 🤣 The Ka-Bar M98 folder is a beast of a knife. The M98 comes in at 5oz with an unimpressive 5Cr15MoV blade on nylon washers and full G-10 handles. Honestly, the I bought the M98 for purely for the knife's aesthetic--a homage to Ka-Bar's fighting knives. The knife is functional but heavy and the clip appears to be a generic, three-screw, shallow carry China-made knife clip. 5Cr15MoV is definitely nothing to write home about but is serviceable.
Fun fact, the 4th Marine Regiment fought in the defense of Corregidor in 1942.
Hello everyone! I'm the type of knife-enthusiast who spends way too much money collecting aftermarket scales for my favorite knives. I've got scales from 4 different makers for my ZT0640 alone. I always wonder why production knife companies have never tapped into the market of buying extra/different scales for existing models. Outside of TRM, Hinderer, and some CKF, I don't think anyone does it. For Drop-made knives in particular, ones that have G10/Wood/CF options, it would be really cool to be able to buy just the scales by themselves. It can be a lot of fun to customize/accessorize your favorite knives, and the posts here are full of people wishing they could swap configurations on models beyond the standard factory options. Perhaps, since Drop has a relationship with their manufacturers, they could look into the idea of allowing purchase of scales. Could even just use the units that get sent back for replacement to cannibalize for parts. Food for thought. I'd buy something like...
