You can’t miss the major changes to the QTR-3fTT “Templeton Peck”. For starters it’s almost 40% lighter and has a much slimmer profile thanks to its frame lock design. It’s stronger and lighter, a deadly combination. Instead of thumb studs, this model now has a flipper for much quicker opening. It’s subset against the handle of the knife so it’s highly unlikely to open in your pocket. See everything new for yourself at www.knifecenter.com.
