2 low performance blades instead of one high perfomance one ? Is it really a substitution ?
What about a multi-tool with nothing but 10 identical flat screwdrivers ?
How comes he was not struck with an idea to have 2 different blades ?

JSCT,
Funny thing is that I think the flipper blade was supposed to be the high performance blade.

JSCT,
Yeah, I think we must have different ideas of performance.

He was most excited about the point on the flipper for its "piercing" ability. I never pierce anything with a knife so that is not particularly exciting for me. Does he explain in the video why it is a combination flipper and slipjoint?

Larrin,
He starts to a few times but really doesn't explain it more than a thin point knife for delicate cutting (flipper) and a thicker point knife for more abusive work (slipjoint).

I like the folder because it is definitely a very different design; and that is what Jeff wanted. I am glad that he is excited about the end product. The idea that some one from YouTube can have their idea fully implemented and produced is very progressive.

However, as a practical pocketknife the design is not only a failure, but it appears to be a bad joke as well. As described, it is thick and heavy for a small folder, and the blade length to handle ratios are poor. Also, the saber ground blades will not have high cutting ability.

To be fair, most cutlery is not designed and marketed for efficient and practical use.

RFL,
Yeah, I think it is cool that he got a knife made.

Any of you guys can have a knife made as there are plenty of makers that take custom orders.
Its pretty much the same.
And most people who ever used a folder would be able to put together concept that
design-wise would not be less advanced.

I certainly cannot know how well he knows the maker perhaps
from my point of view as a maker it was interesting for them to make a knife
for someone with a popular yt channel.
