Looking at this one in particular:
Modus M390 steel assisted opening
Looks nice to me and the price puts it in line with my limits, but I know nothing of the brand.
Never heard of the brand so I was curious. Looks good from a random sampling of 1.
The butcher with the sharpest knife has the warmest heart.

I'm a huge fan of my Modus D2. Terrific EDC with great flipper action. The Modus M390 knife is discontinued by the manufacturer so whatever inventory that is left at the distributor(s)is all there will be. Compared to the D2 model, it runs on bearings as opposed to bushings and, of course, uses far superior steel and carbon fiber scales. The M390 knives are made in Italy as opposed to the lesser models (like mine) which are Chinese made. This is not an assisted opening knife but it does have a silky smooth light flipper action. If you want one, now's the time to buy before they're history.This message has been edited. Last edited by: elde,

Thanks for the info.
They are sold out on amazon but still available at Grand Prairie Knives.
Received a couple days ago.
Sure looks like a hell of a lot of knife for the money to me.
This is my first flipper and I am very pleased. The description says it isn't assisted opening, but it certainly flies right into the locked position fast enough to fool me.
As for the sharpness, I haven't looked at it under a microscope but I believe it is about as sharp as the metal will allow.
Doubt it will ever be highly sought after by collectors, but the serial number is below 20. My guess is it was made on the first day of production.
Now I have to get some less expensive versions for carry - I just don't wanna scratch this one. This message has been edited. Last edited by: apprentice,
