QTRM5TR QTR-6TT Orville Rick Wright
The Orville Rick Wright is easily the most EDC-able model in Quartermaster Knives present lineup. It's size, blade shape, ease-of opening and overall feel make it a perfect candidate for daily carry. The construction and assembly are based on QTRM5TR's less hardware, less repair theory of design. The handle and frame sides are secured around the pivoting blade by nothing but their Tri-Spoke Pivot Assembly & two oversized chain-ring bolts. The blade style, traditional in some senses--it's shape is utilitarian, known as a drop-point. It's dual thumb studs give you the touch you need when blind and help to get that steel where you'll need it, fast. The machining of the G-10 scale is unique to the QTRM5TR brand. It's tough to develop a pattern that's unique in knives these days, but they've achieved it with this piece. Finally, the flipper device doubles as a finger guard, it moves the blade into position with an intuitive flick with the help of the ORB®. An amazingly solid knife at every angle.
About the ORB® Pivot System: The ORB® Pivot System is a sealed ball-bearing technology that is widely considered the second generation of an open-bearing system that is being used by some manufacturers today.
The ORB's advantages are plenty: dirt and pocket lint cannot impede the track of these rollers, they're encased. The ball-bearing system tightens the tolerances in and around the pivot of the folding knife, as a result the lock-up is vault tight, yet the rollers allow for almost effortless rotation.
The lack of play at any point on the rotational axis of the blade is truly unlike anything currently being made at this price point in the United States.
I was able to find an Emerson Mini A-100 which was unavailable or back ordered elsewhere. The price was good and shipping was very quick (two days). I will definitely buy though them again.
