The Inversion is a knife that will take some getting used to when it comes to how it looks and how it handles. For those also familiar with Spyderco's P'Kal folding knife, it functions in a similar manner primarily for use in the reverse grip with the cutting edge facing inward. The main objective is not flowing drills with your opponent but rapidly and effectively striking and surprising. It has a flipper tab and ambidextrous thumb disk plus caged ceramic bearings for smooth opening and the titanium frame lock provides solid lockup. This is not your typical self-defense or everyday carry knife but can definitely be used for more than protecting your life; we especially like a recurve blade for opening boxes around here.
