A friend just sent me one of these, I had never heard of them before:
[yobotool.com]

Nice knife, VG10 at 60-61 HRC, on ball bearings, flipper tab, G10 handles. Came very sharp for a production blade.

JDW,
Yeah, the one I have has mostly steel construction and isn't milled so it is handle heavy, but the overall weight isn't noticeably too heavy. It is 4.5 oz for a 3.5" blade. Most of the weight comes from a solid steel backspacer that runs almost the whole of the knife, and it only has partial G-10 scales, the rest is steel. I really like it. I would like to compare it to a Tangram, Civivi, Ruike, or Steel Will. The edge was very sharp, hairwhittling.

Sound like you got a good one! A lot of choice for a budget knifenut at the moment.
