Gingrich Tactical Innovations
 
From the innovative mind of Justin Gingrich / Gingrich Tactical Innovations, comes a sturdy titanium flipper with a new, incredibly strong mechanism, the Delta Lock!

The centerpiece of this new blade is the patent-pending Delta Lock. Whereas a traditional frame lock only engages the tang at a single point, the Delta Lock forms a V-shaped cutout that interfaces with four different surfaces on the tang, preventing movement in any direction and creating one of the strongest setups we have seen here at KnifeCenter. You feel it in your bones when this knife locks open - truly vault like with no blade play. When you are ready to close, it is as easy to use as any locking liner or frame.

Another bonus to the Delta Lock - the point of the tang that rests in the bottom of the V doubles as a glass-breaker when the blade is closed, adding a fearsome dose of aggression to this knife.

The BD1 stainless steel blade rotates open with smooth and repeatable action from the flipper or dual thumbstuds. A broad drop point profile promises versatility and hard-use durability.

This blade isn’t all action either - the titanium frame is plenty stylish with a dimpled finish. Not only does this look great, but it also adds texture for increased traction without being uncomfortable. There is certainly plenty here to hold and this knife won’t get away from you in hand or in the pocket, especially with the robust clip for easy carry.

I like it!
I was really interested in this one when I heard about it, and waited for it to be released. I'm impressed! The overall fit and finish on this ended up being very nice. I was initially concerned when I opened the box, because I had a lot of blade play. It turned out the pivot was just loose. I cranked it down, and even with significant tightening, the blade flies right out. The lock works as advertised. This knife locks up tight! It really is impressive. You work it just like a liner lock, so it's easy to use, but it feels much more solid than a standard liner lock. I also have had no issues with the pivot coming loose again. The blade came razor sharp with a beautiful satin finish. The pocket clip works very well with the handle texturing, having good grip but not tearing my pockets. I also really like how it feels in my hand. The handle is not overly thick, but it is a tall handle, so it still fills the hand really well. The only negatives were my receiving it with a loose pivot, the packaging was pretty cheap (understandable though, as GTI is a smaller company), and it is a heavy knife (the solid titanium handles are not milled out at all). I am not bothered by weight, but a lot of people are. All in all, this a really high quality blade. Definitely recommend.
