    Why the chain drive? I don't get it...

    {edit: just looked at Nick Shabazz' review. So I see how it works, but I still don't grasp why they bothered....?}

    Sometimes I'm dense...

    @Moshe ben David I have read that it is stronger and the spring last longer. (??) Yes, it will be a lint/dirt trap. I can already see that with just 1 day in the pocket. (Maybe I should clean out my pockets?)
    It's novel and I guess that is my biggest reason for getting it, along with it's size.

    Once you get past the basics of a knife, some embellishment is needed to get you to choose one sharp piece of steel over another... has been that way for more than a century now. :D

    They failed. With me at least!

    Especially at the pricing... IIRC from the Nick Shabazz review, this thing is in the neighborhood of $400? Even I'm NOT that big a fool...

    For me, first it was to have one major model of every major brand. But of course that can only fail. So then it moved to whatever was interesting as a knife. From the Urban Trapper over the Hootenanny to the Gayle Bradley 2 and the 940.
    But I was never interested in embellished knives. After I had a few dozen I started to sell. First the lower tier. Then the middle tier. At then end I sold most of them. Even my Phoenix in white.
    Now, I only kept the trifecta, a PM2, and three very personal ones. Now I’m sometimes eyeing knives and I was very close to buying a Medford. But I knew, after two or three weeks of sweating I’d be ok. And that’s what happened.
    Circling BTT. That left me with four production knives in the higher steels. S35V, S110V, CTS40CP, or CPM 20CV. Thus, why should I bother with anything else?

    Curious design. Any concern about the "notch" leading up to the flip tab?

    My new Rajah 3 is now been added to the rotation, changed the clip-orientation, oiled-it-up, and added the obligatory lanyard. This is a great medium-sized carry folks.

    Here's a comparison snap of the "Raj", and my ZT 0300 "Tiger".
