    More or less for the rest of this week:

    > LF pocket, on dangler: LM Squirt PS4
    > belt sheath at 9 o'clock: LM Blast.
    > Coin pocket: Spyderco ClipiTool, VG-10; SE secondary blade
    > RF pocket: BM mini - griptilian with 'modified' sheepsfoot PE

    I'll be in a suit a few days; on those days I'll probably limit myself to the LM Squirt PS4 and an Alox Cadet

    L'chaim!

    I like the overall shape and feel. And it carries nicely, especially considering its size. It’s shape doesn’t shout “tactical” to casual observers.

    What I don’t like, so far, is that it’s not easy to start to open. I had expected a better finish or assembly tuning, maybe. I do expect it’ll smooth out over time.

    I have a different model, from Emerson, that’s maybe 15 years old and it’s as smooth as can be.

    The titanium liner typically is gritty, making opening difficult when new. You may want to try loosening the pivot a tiny bit to see if that improves deployment. I understand the "better finish or assembly tuning" aspect, especially given competitor finish (take Spyderco, ZT, or any well-reputed brand)... but its typical Emerson.

    No oil or grease. If you want to help it break in, use graphite powder. Helps against lock stick on titanium frame locks as well.
