Top 2pics are of a Early Trident posted on EBay....bottom 3 are my standard Government and the Recon Gov for contrast...

BE413D35-FAAE-4701-9A9D-7FB73B893E6E.jpeg  86E8FAEC-FF38-4EB1-BC4A-FD8BCE59C8D5.jpegThis is the first of my two Fantoni HB-01 models that I bought..it has a S35-VN blade as a standard model..there are limited edition models with S125V and M390 that I know of...whether it’s a standard or limited model, the fit, finish and function qualities are all of a high level...this Italian produced knife reminds me of the Taichung Spyderco models....I know some single-minded Spyderco only collectors that put the Taichung pieces above the USA/Golden Colorado models...they’re THAT good.
The stonewash on the blade is even and deep with a light polish over it...every edge is broken, the hardware is both stout and beautifully finished..it’s a amazing folder, a classic flagship model that comes in 3 different sizes to suit any had size...the design is courtesy of Bill W. Harsey....

If you look up the “evolution of the Yojimbo2” on YouTube you will see Janich explain everything AND you will be shown the prototype he built, and the 1 of 1 knife Snody built based on Mike’s Proto....
Their collaboration lent its DNA to production knives by Benchmade and Spyderco...the Yojimbo and YJ2, and the Benchmade Gravitator 425 Wharencliff and the 426 Gravitator Drop point...
The Snody Custom Reactor is a rare item that I very much want to possess...

This knife can be found on EBay presently...it’s a Seki City produced “scuba” style knife...
its spear point and top edge serrations remind me of the Scuba Demo from SOG, which came out of Seki City...the SOG model has a nicer handle and guard...and it goes for $600+ most of the time  8E2A9482-45C4-40AB-B606-49251EDD2956.png  D042B958-EA0B-4418-9C5A-C05F92EB6A08.png  image.jpg

theres a smaller model that’s probably more like a California legal sized OTF, and a 3.75 or 4in blade model..
I think they all have safety locks on them

BA02B51B-634E-4976-8BD5-7C46743BC307.png  Have a Cold Steel Arc Angel on layaway at ACK....anyone is welcome to go to the CS page and see the obscene price I’m going to eventually payout for it..🙄or just look at the above picture, believe me I wanted to crop it...but, it is a production balisong that is on par with the flipping community’s OG favorite, the Benchmade 42.....I believe the Arc Angel was produced in smaller numbers than the 4X series...AND it is a billet machined piece as opposed to the cast handles of the 4Xs......
A batch of 10 or so AAs were sold on ACK middle of last year and they varied in price from $500-$700+....and more recent sales have been around $1000....much like current Benchmade 4X Knives...
