    Blade: D2 Tool Steel (0.19") w/ Tumbled finish
    Handle: Black G10 (front); Titanium (back)
    Pocket Clip: Titanium
    Extras: Black Storage Case
    Blade Length: 4-1/4"

    Here is some shots in hand and next to a Spyderco Endura for size reference. Also my hands are a size XL to XXL and pretty beat up from the work I do as an automotive mechanic. What first drew me to the knife was the wave feature for pocket deployment or bottle cap lifter. I noticed that the hollow grind is much finer and thinner than my 187DP. This one came seriously sharp as well it really is a phenomenal slicer for having such thick blade stock.
    Yes 187 DP is the Vulcan finish. I like it but I have been thinking of forcing some more patina with mustard to make the blade a little darker overall.

    Really awesome Vulcan finish on these two Drop points @Banks619 .
    A Micro and a Genesis? The Tanto is a full Praetorian?
    Kind regards,

    @balder77 how do you like your Spartan Enyo? Is it comfortable? How is the coating holding up?

    Hi @Dingle1911 ,
    I really like the Enyo, carries good, good ergonomics, love the design, but I really cannot say something about the holding up of the coating,
    because mine never had to do hard work, signs from drawing are very little.
    Imho it is a really awesome knife, but my daily user is , most times the Izula.
    Kind regards,
    Chris

    Hi friends, wanted to take this thread back to life, because I am still a big fan of this blades.
    Hope it is no problem taking the photo from another forum, if it is , please just delete and let me know.
    Computer dyslexic as I am, I did not know how to manage otherwise, so Sorry!
    Not too actual, I know, but still my horded Medfords ;-)
    Another Praetorian Genesis with cool custom engraving on its way.
    Kind regards,

    @balder77: I don't know what is more impressive. Your Medford collection or the implied budget you have available for the same! :)

    L'chaim!

    Hi Moshe ben David,
    thank you for your kind words.
    Collection is grown over years, and depends on both hard work ( every day two hours extra) and saving up the money. Family first ,collection a while after it !

    Kind regards,
    Chris
