Gerry McGinnis -- how about a making a real "mini" -- with a 3-inch or just under blade that's easy to carry and legal in more places; a detent that isn't "tough" and scales that aren't so shiny! A well-priced model like that would fly off your shelves. Thanks for listening.

Hatman, the link below, while not a McGinnis, seems to fit what you described to the teeth...

Absolutely -- got one as soon as they were available! He's one maker who understood the demand for 3-inch and under folding knives. Thanks!
This folder is nice but too expensive for my wallet. No doubt there are people paying half a grand for a custom knife, just like there are people paying 3 -4 grands for a custom Shirogorov from Russia.
End of the day, it's a demand and supply thing. Willing buyer and willing seller
jeaseless. 500$ for something that probably won't leave the shelf and isn't even pretty.
That price is steep! Can get two nice Bemchmade knives for that price. Hard to buy a knife at this price without feeling it in your hand.
Finally got mine today!

This is a knife with a "tough guy" personality. The detent strength is quite strong and it's going to take some technique to flip it open without wearing out the finger. The checkering on the handle is very well-done and can provide a soothing massage if you run your fingers over it. The beauty of having the checkering directly on the titanium handle is that there is no carbon fiber or G10 layer to "chip" off due to some heavy pounding for whatever reason. Therefore, this is a solid folder made of three solid pieces of metal- the blade and the two sides of the titanium handle. In summary, this knife will last a life-time without any non-metal material to break apart from use or accident.

The Spyderco Southard, in comparison, has a "nice guy" personality. The detent strength is "about right" and is friendly with the finger. I could flip the knife multiple times without wearing out the skin on my finger but it would tire my finger if I did too many times.

The G10 Brous Caliber, on the other hand, has a "playful" personality. The detent strength is quite loose in comparison. It is quite easy to flop the flip due to lack of "sudden force" from breaking thru the detent resistance. Thus there are two ways to flip the Brous Caliber and still have fun. One is to push from the "tip" of the flipper button and imagine your finger going forward as you push. It is definitely a different kind of "push" compared to the McGinnis and the Southard. The second way to flip the Caliber is to push the flipper button gently to free the blade from detent and then use the wrist action to "throw" the blade out. I enjoy throwing the blade out 'cause the eventual "click" when the blade locked into position is a very satisfying feeling. It feels almost like the blade is part of you.

Having bought these three folders, I began to understand and appreciate the uniqueness and personality the creators brought to their custom knives.

Cheers!

Many better quality flippers are a little stiff initially, but will loosen up after a few hundred flips. Think of it as a break in period.

Thanks for the comment. Since this has a titanium frame-lock, the ability for the titanium frame-lock to loosen up is slim since the thick titanium frame has strong memory; however, I'm sure my finger will build up strength and the skin will get toughen after a few hundred flips such that the flipping becomes easier. In other words, the break-in period is actually my finger.

Despite the tough detent, the flipping sensation of a fast release of the blade breaking thru detent is very unique and one-of-a-kind. While I don't flip away like I do with the Brous Caliber, I do enjoy flipping the McGinnis on an occasional basis.

Cheers!
I just got mine, and I am extremely happy. Fires like a rocket. And is smooth as glass. Thank you, MD.
It's a go! The order for the McGinnis Pro Line Mini Exo Flipper was placed just after the drop came to an end. Now our vendor will be working hard to prepare it for shipment to each of you.

As soon as we receive word from the vendor about the shipping schedule, we will update you all with that information.

Look forward to another update from us by the end of the day Pacific Time on 1/18 or earlier if anything comes up.
Half a grand for a flipper? Well, alrighty then.
Why is a simple lock back flipper so expensive when the steel is only a CPM154?
For this kind of money I'd expect Elmax steel and ball bearing with assist opening.

Also, I'm sorry that you feel defensive. Psychology, being the study of the human mind, presents one with dozens of potential "case studies" every day; being as we are human minds, surrounded by other human minds. Was it the use of technical terminology that has upset you? Using technically correct terms helps me to communicate meaning clearly; especially when discussing maladaptive things, because the colloqial jargon for maladaptive psychological symptoms often ends up having pejorative implications attached, and that's not intended.

So yeah, I gave the so-called "psychology 101 case study" under a third of a comment; and, as I say, that's just a perception that you've formed because I tried to avoid insulting you. So it goes, I guess. Still - if I were doing what you have claimed I am doing, I could happily give your most recent comment 500 words or so; among those words would be "antiprocessing", "cognitive dissonance", "effort justification" and "true believer syndrome". While your first comment was unexceptional, I always do enjoy seeing someone express their objection to being called an "X" by suddenly turning into the Platonic Ideal of X's.

But I'm not a troll, and even though I type fast I'm busy, so have a nice evening.

No apology needed. As long as we are human, there will always be a psychological "label" for any human responses which included yours as well. I dare say that the only one who can respond without triggering a psychological label is probably Buddha himself; but then someone will surely find a label to slap on him as well.

Keep it simple, enjoy the folders we chose and bought and continue to share our thought regardless.

Cheers!
I really wish this was available in Canada.
Just curious if anyone has received the EXO yet...since I've signed up for this, I've gotten a strange (fraud) email from my bank in regards to this purchase...I have bought stuff through MASSDROP before so i'm not really worried, but it is kind of strange that I haven't heard anything from MASSDROP ever since I signed up to get the EXO...hoping to this goes through and I get the knife soon...
