I wish it had a flipper. Ball bearings would be icing on the cake. A cross between the Yo2 and Kershaw Tilt would be perfect.

MBC was created with exactly this in mind.

BTW, there is an affiliate instructor in Amarillo listed on the MBC web site.

I don't like to work on other people's knives right now because I'm trying to get through a PharmD. program and my time is extremely limited. There are a few folks over at BF that could help you out if you send your knife and a picture of mine.

After a little use, The blade shape is growing on me. I hated the idea of this knife until I handled it.

Oh, sorry. I misunderstood the question. The knife was around $110.

Hey Clem -- I really love your waved Yojimbo 2! The Cutting Edge

I'd like to get a Y2 myself, but between my gen-1 Yojimbo and my Perrin PPT, I'm just having a hard time justifying it...

Yeah, yeah -- I know, I know -- what does "justifying" have to do with anything? The Cutting Edge

I think the Yo II is a significant improvement over the original. But the original is definitely the more collectible of the two.

I do like the Perrin design on the ppt I just haven't warmed up to the Taiwanese Spydercos.

At some point -- since you appear to be a fan -- you really ought to give the Taichung Spydercos a look-see.

To be honest, I was hesitant with the "made in Taiwan" stigma myself. But I loved the look of the PPT enough to give it a shot. I'm glad I did. It's a solid piece of workmanship, with the hair-shaving blade you would expect of a Spydie and such sigh-of-relief-inducing pluses as a blade perfectly centered on the pivot.

I liked it so much, that I also wound up getting a Taichung-made Sage 1 -- same comments as for the PPT.

Although there are enough great Spydies coming out of Colorado and Seki City, that you could certainly stay occupied with those also...

No doubt that they are good knives, I've handled a lot of them. I really dig the Vallotton Sub-Hilt. It's just Something I'm not used to yet.
