535

Product Review (submitted on October 1, 2018):
The 535 has quickly become my daily carry, replacing the Mini Grip. The first thing I noticed is how light it is. Under 2 oz. Feels like it's not even there. The deep carry clip is great to have right out of the box. The clip is a little short, so the pull out of my pocket and transition to full grip is not quite as smooth as some knives, but just everything else about it more than makes up for that. And I'm sure there's plenty of options to install a longer clip if needed.

The handle is a full four finger grip with my hands, whereas the slightly shorter Mini Grip left my pinky hanging off. The blade is also just a bit longer, but still under the 3 inches that some locations limit by law. There's a little play in the Grivory scales, but I've not found a job that they can't handle yet. The action is incredibly smooth, has a nice solid lockup, and the action is not as springy sounding as the MG. It's real quiet. The blade doesn't bounce back when it closes if the axis lock is still pressed down if I'm snapping it shut one-handed. It also has the added benefit of looking awesome. The blue anodized thumb stud is a nice small feature that really pops against the satin-finished steel.
