Many people believe that great knife should have great weight which you'll be glad to feel in your hand. Is this assumption truly?

The second part of the handle - thick steel plate, which gives most of the weight to the knife. There are several versions of this model, available colors are black, green and orange. Pattern on the handle excludes slipping in palm, so it's really useful.
G722 design, shape of the handle and the blade are very similar to the model G720. Knife has length about 9 cm in folded position, and 21 cm - in unfolded.
The spine of blade has 4mm thickness. There is also two-side thumbstud for one-handed opening. On the spine of the knife you can see wavy thumb ramp for comfortable use. Similar ramp is located on the handle, and it is very practical. Blade sharpening is not bad. Cutting edge continues to the choil. Knife has smooth work of blade and brass washers on its axis.
