Every screw and backspacer is custom-made in house at Toor's manufacturing facility. The blade rides on phosphor bronze washers for a smooth controlled folding action. Every Merchant is finished with KG Gunkote for ultimate corrosion resistance.
Lastly, every component of this blade is made at Toor Knives in San Diego, CA.

My biggest complaint is that there is not enough thumb cutout on the presentation side for me to easily release the frame lock. I know they are already onto V2, so maybe that is something that has been fixed. Also the the pocket clip was so tight I needed to bend it a bit, and the thumb studs are a little bit too sharp, if it got more pocket time I would expect it to dig a hole through my pants pretty quickly. The price is alright for made in USA though, so I’ll give it 3 stars
