How does Gerry McGinnis keep his grades up as a student at North Carolina State University and still keep coming up with new and interesting knife designs? We don't know, but we just couldn't resist putting his new Premonition™ line into production.
Premonition™ 1163K. This black-bladed every day carry (E.D.C.) features a precisely angled flipper for extra-fast one-hand blade opening. Because of the flipper, the knife does not need either thumb studs or nail nicks for opening.
The frame is a lightweight open build of hand-contoured, layered blue/black G10, with a stainless steel strip lock inlaid into a machined relief in one handle frame. The frame is curvilinear to fit the hand, and is amply skeletonized with nine lightening holes on the other frame. The black glass filled nylon back spacer is forward on the handles, allowing maximum blade length for this length of handle.
The 3.25" drop point blade is premium 8Cr14MoV stainless steel with a high hollow grind. It features a black oxide coating with combination Razor-Sharp and our patented* Veff™ Serrated edge, which gives superior cutting through rope, webbing and canvas.
The stainless steel strip liner and removable pocket/gear clip are blue titanium nitride coated to match the blue G10 layer in the handles.
Awesome little guy, not too big and its good looking, so its good for a gentlemen knife. nice annodized clip and liners to match the blue G10
If you are someone who also doesn't put heavy pressure on your knives, i would get it.
everything about it is perfect for its class, G-10 was a little rough on the finishing around the holes and what-not, but everything else was spot on.
no blade play on mine, and no sticky spots. blade was sharpened evenly from the factory even, that's a first
