|It's a nice friction folder. I like the long blade, red bone handle and the silver shield. That shield shape always reminds me of keystones.|
|I'm not a huge fan of fiction folders, but I like the way this one is made with the brass liners. Everything is flush, tightly fitted and deep red jigged bone is spectacular.|
|The Queen tang stamp has changed over the years making the knives more collectible. The addition of 92 shows it was made in 1992. Thank you Mr. Clark!|
|I'm more comfortable with blades that lock open. I just think they are simply safer!|
|The clip is mounted so the knife sits deep in your pocket. I prefer the tip up especially with an assisted-opener. I wear these things with the blade pressed tight against the back of the pocket where it can't open.|
|While I really like the way the fabric shows through the G-10, the Kanji characters worry me. Could they mean 'fried rice' or something more sinister?|
At this point I’m hoping they stand for something innocent like 'fried rice.' Other websites indicate the 1st character means soldier or military (hei) while the 2nd pertains to technique or strategy (ho).
Combined, they signify heiho, or method of the warrior. That’s much better than fried rice.
