This knife was a splurge even if I did get it at a closeout price. For all you old time CPFers out there when I first saw it it was like looking at an ARC LSH for he 1st time. What a beautiful knife.

The blade is M390 steel and the handles are titanium. Having titanium handles forgoes the need for steel liners making this an extremely thin knife. The knife comes with a titanium pocket clip. The thumbstud and spacers are all machined so they look like sprockets. The bottom of the handles are also machined with what looks like jimping breaking up otherwise smooth lines. It makes for an elegant looking knife. Almost to elegant to carry.

The thumbstud is only for right handers, southpaws beware. It takes a little practice to get the blade open. Mine does not snap open like the reviews online suggest.

The build quality and materials used make this an extremely durable knife. This will be my travel knife when I go overseas. It has a look that says, "Nice knife," not "Oh shit it's a knife!"
