This is a beautiful little classic Frank B switchblade. It is made well but is quite inexpensive. Some of the finishing details reflect the price tag but it’s still an excellent value and a quality piece. I didn’t read the description close enough and I was expecting briar wood scales. These are formed shell-style apparently made from plastic or acrylic. Again, for the price, this should have been expected. The scales are attached by screws, though, so it makes a great project knife if you were so inclined to replace the scales with a natural or otherwise more premium material. I’m very happy with the product and highly recommend.
