    How do you like the ACE Biblio? How smooth is the flipping action? I’ve been considering getting one for those less than 3in locations.

    The fact that it is the only knife I have four different versions of probably tells you best how I feel about it! :D It's really a great EDC knife, I love carrying it. I find the overall quality of all four Biblios very good, they are all centered and have solid lock-up. The flipping action however is the one thing where they all differ. The bronze and one of the micartas came with great action out of the box, perfectly balanced detent, smooth action. The other micarta needed a bit break-in, some oil and some pivot tweaking. Now it is decent but not as smooth as the other one. The titanium version feels very gritty. It still flicks open but if you don't trigger it right it tends to get stuck half way. I'm wondering if the darkwash finish has something to do with it but I also haven't played around with it as much as with the micarta...

    Thanks, for the info. I will definitely keep considering. It seems so many good flippers either do not have reversible clips do not have a less than 3” version.

    Interesting point! I think especially over the last 1-2 years there has been a flood of terrific sub-3'' flipper designs but you are absolutely right about the reversible clip. It seems like more and more companies are dropping that option in favor of a cleaner look.

    I understand the desire for a cleaner version and wouldn’t mind, if they made a left-hand version. Kizer makes a left-hand flipper but it is just over 3”. Or if they want cleaner design the clip such that it attaches to the end of the knife and can reverse, that also gives deep carry.

    I got this one from AliExpress where it is sold as something like Vintage Brass Steampunk Lighter. There are several similar models, all from Chinese sellers, also on Ebay. I have looked around but was never able to find an "original" design that those might be based on...
