New knife from Horizon Bladeworks.

I asked Joyce for a cheaper knife for doing weekend chores. She said she had a Schrade switchblade that fit the bill. I got it today.

Considering the price, wow, this folder should really challenge Boker. The blade rips open with a snap only seen on top-flight switchbades!

The bevel is the widest I've ever seen. And considering that this is an Emerson clone, the edge is only on the left side only. That means this puppy has an extreme edge, and it did nip me a few times just changing hands. Nothing serious, but I learned to be careful.

As I like, this folder comes in "coil drive." It has a secure pocket clip, held in place with a stout bolt screwed into the end-butt--which is capped with a glass breaking point.

The handle itself, also much like a Boker, has three wide, textured finger grooves. The handle spine is completely jimped, you're not going to lose this switchblade, wet or dry.

The polishing made this knife capable of any medium.

It's a great knife at an amazing price, just be careful. Schrade made this thing to slice!

Man, I love me a nice armor-piercing tanto blade. Not the greatest to work with, but nasty enough to justify it anyway.

If I told you what Joyce charges for that knife, you'd call me crazy for sure!

It has all the features and the build quality of a Boker--at about 2/3s the tariff.

I also bought an inch and 3/4 inch SW switchblade for my fob pocket, but my wife stole it.

And I got a very decent and well finished real-deal Sicilian switchblade stiletto.

Delivered on time, at fair prices. And this Schrade is sharp.

Well, I carry mine as an EDC pocketknife. Then again, if I dull it or chip it, I know a guy...

I like this knife so much, I'm going to get a second one from Joyce when I get my next allowance!

EDIT: To be fair, Bada Bing does not carry this knife--you have to get it from Joyce.
