*** Pros / Cons ***

+ Unique, futuristic looking design with crisp lines
+ Good, solid fit & finish

– Steep angles and corners on the handle are not overly comfortable
– One-position pocket clip

*** Verdict ***

This is not the most pragmatic design, but not gimicky either. It sacrifices a bit of comfort and ergonomics for a very distinct visual style reminiscent of science-fiction. It’s well put together and has no significant flaws other than the handle which would feel a lot better in the hand if it was more rounded (or beveled). But it’s almost polygon-like shape makes it highly subject to personal taste, so it may very well be it a love it or hate it kind of deal.

William Spears says:

based on your reviews I am leaning heavily toward the Persian Folder for my EDC knife but it's nice to have someone else sort through the vast mountain of folders out there

Braden Matthews says:

please review the ratwork mrx it is the strongest auto knife they cut it through a car door for with an air chisel

Colby White says:

Why would you not like having a safety on a firearm?

Chi Ho Ko says:

Looks pretty cool, but it seems pretty thick to keep it in my pocket…

Blightlotus says:

You said you didn't like manual safety, but what other types of safety are there? Cause I want to buy a knife that won't open in my pocket, and I thought Shrade knives were the only knives with a safety. BTW, I bought the SCHA3CB a long time ago because of your video, now i'm looking for a new knife.

Chris McPherson says:

where can I buy one of those?

Gavin Kendig says:

looks like a cool outside belt knife

Wavester64 says:

Excellent video! You're right – does look like something Robocop would use 😉

blipblip88 says:

I dunno, looks like some sort of Batman fantasy knife….

MathisRH says:

Assisted opening is illegal in Germany. Just saying.

Sonny Smith says:

why are switch knifes bannned? like oh no he could take the blade up faster that will fuck some shit up! lol

VicariousReality7 says:

Taylor seems rather decent as long as they have a sane designer at the helm

Scott Mew says:

I'm guessing its angled design and small silhouette make it totally invisible on radar but alas it still shows up on metal detectors.

TheDerpFrog says:

Good vid once again man
