Both knives are 9" open, 5" closed with a 4" blade. Both have IKBS on a .25" pivot riding on grade 5 ceramic balls. They also have a ceramic grade 5 detent ball, lock face carbidized and an internal stop pin.

First up is the linerlock. It features front and rear titanium bolsters, titanium liners, titanium backspacer and a carved titanium clip. All titanium surfaces are orange peeled. In the middle are LSCF scales. All hardware is polished. An Elmax blade rounds it out.

Next up is the framelock. It features a smooth finish on the frames with a little dark anodize. The blade in this knife is HHH damascus from Randy Haas. It is 1095 and 15N20. I chose to satin and polish the blade. The black etch just didn't match the knife. The rest of the components are the same as the linerlock. Thanks for looking.
