I am considering this knife and had a few questions, any insight would be great. 1. Thoughts on the BD-1 steel? 2. Thoughts on the handle material? I'm more used to heavier knives with wood or dymondwood scales and steel liners. I just bought a Buck Sprint with glass filled nylon handles and if you check for blade play the whole dang handles flexes. I'm not a big fan of that. 3. Is it a USA made knife. The reason I ask is b/c DLT puts a little flag next to the USA models. All the other Manix has the flag but this one. It looks like it say USA on the blade tho. I'm getting this for a general, do it all edc. Also, I really dig the looks of the Translucent blue. Anything else I should know? Thanks!!
