Spyderco Barong Folder
This is a great folder. It has a great blade reminiscent of the LUM design- leaf shaped with an oversized hole for easy access. The handle, though, is minimal made of G10 with steel liners. It really stays out of the way. The blade is 4 inches of flat ground VG10 stainless and the knife is made in Japan. The action is smooth as the blade just flies open with minimal effort and the liner is easy to access to release the blade.
