Price: About $650
The Good: Immaculate fit & finish, super smooth action, it’s a Shirogorov
The Bad: Somewhat dull visually, ridiculously expensive for a production knife
Bottom Line: A clear status symbol when it comes to high-end production knives
Price: About $300
The Good: Incredibly well built, solid lockup, great steel, definitely a looker
The Bad: Miserable pocket clip, disappointing action due to heft/geometry/Teflon washers, heavy, pricey.
Bottom Line: Like all things metal and Italian: beautiful, pricey, and charismatic if slightly flawed.
