I have this G10 stainless liner blade since January. Among all my pocket folders in the under $500 price range, this one is the most comfortable one-hand operation folder. For everyday use around the house, this is the one I'll reach for simply because of the ease of one-hand operation. The process of getting the Brous blade out of the pocket, flip it, use it, close it, and go back to the pocket is so effortless that you don't even remember you've used it.

PS. I did take it apart and re-grease the ball-bearing pivot so it is a lot smoother.
If massdrop decided to bring back the CF version with titanium liners, I'll jump into the drop
This knife AGAIN!!! Why?????? Bring on the VR-71
Got my Brous Caliber flipper today. Cannot flip it open or pull open the blade. Using a torx wrench, I tried to loosen the pivot but it still did not work correctly. I was able to pull the blade out of the hand by grabbng the back of the blade. However, it made a raspy metal on metal sound. What to do?

Same issue with mine. Some lube helped a lot.

The pocket clip took a ugly gash out of the paint on my vehicle today while getting in. Yes, my own fault where someone parked very close and the knife was clipped on my right pocket. My previous knife didn't have such a pronounced edge on the pocket clip where it didn't do this.... for those who care. Still a great knife. 179/300.

I feel your pain, man. I scratched the shit out of my leather steering wheel in my new car, the first day carrying this knife. Not the knife's fault, just myself to blame.
I got the Titanium and Carbon Fiber version of the Caliber flipper and it is my absolute favorite knife for a multitude of reasons. One of my favorite features that I haven't heard as much praise for is the pocket clip, which I think Brous does perfectly. It is secure yet minimal.

A picture is worth a thousand words:

I'm not a fan of deep carry pocket clips because they tend to get in the way of gripping the knife. On the Yojimbo for example, you'll notice the pocket clip is nearly unnoticeable inside the palm.

And due to the holes they typically need to access the screws, along with the clip being folded over, I find deep carry clips tend to flex and wiggle inside the hand during use.

Also some have weak retention and wants to hop out of the pocket if you jump or sprint.

Interesting - thanks for the insight! I didn't even consider the hole or the fold being a drawback but you make a great point.
I assume this will start at 301 or whatever the next numbering would be? It wouldn't make sense to have a numbered knife or anything, if the sequence is always the same as the previous, limited run.

Hey Ronaldo71 -- Massdrop does not sell counterfeit items, period. The original release was a limited edition of 300 with carbon fiber scales and titanium liners. This knife is also limited edition of 300, but with G10 scales and stainless steel liners. The description here correctly states that these flippers were designed by Jason and made by Brous. Thanks for your vigilance, I hope that clears up any confusion.

Just my guesses:
- I'd be more inclined to assume that the current drop is for leftovers from the original 300 that were produced.
- I believe the 500 limited production was for the Titanium/Carbon Fiber Calibers, and the 300 limited production was for the Stainless/G10 Calibers.
This again!! Why not the VR-71 -OR- if you are going to rerun the same model at least change the material handle or the blade, come on now!!
Is this for the Brous Bionic 2.0 ? If not, there is a difference of smoothness with the flipper between the two...btw for $20 more, Brous auto's are available..
