This knife is starting to appeal, a lot. But I want the auto!

Cool!

Maybe I should wait and see if they make an auto version of the MPC? The folding knife that intimidates dinosaurs :wink:

I've met some of the Extrema Ratio guys and handled several of their knives. Both are top notch. ERs are a bit pricey but they are well designed and very high quality. I've always wondered why they didn't get much attention in the US. Are they popular on your side of the pond Milu?

I don't think they had any autos when I met them but they were all very intrigued and interested in the MicrotechLCC I showed them. Good to see an auto. The action on this one looks to resemble the Benchmade Axis lock. Has anybody handled one?

There was a moment some years back that they built up quite a following in the US. I don't know what happened but their main agent walked and founded "Dark Ops" aka dork ops.


They are very popular with collectors I know, and Righi, my favourite bricks aand mortar shop, sells a lot of them. Typically the owners I know have them as safe queens which is sad, it's the brand that screams "use me, I can take it" more than any other I know.

You're right. I bought on of these:

It cuts like a BEAST and holds an edge very well. Definately a workhorse.
