The Medford Micro Praetorian brings a completely overbuilt design quality to a manageable EDC-sized folding form factor. This little big knife features a 2.8" long, 0.19" thick blade in a drop point geometry and many options of steel (where available). While it might be on the shorter side of the knife spectrum, it's still built like a tank with beefy proportions, measuring 1.25" wide and 0.5" total thickness. Closed, it's just under 5" long. Aggressive jimping on the spine of the blade and handle, combined with a G-10 or other textured scales on the show side give plenty of grip on the knife.

Elongated thumb "nicks" in the blade allow for ambidextrous deployment, securing into a beefy liner lock. An emergency glass breaker pommel and a straight pocket clip round out the details of this made-in-the-USA knife. If you prefer an overengineered, tactical EDC with a premium feel, check out the Micro Praetorian by Medford Knives at the link below.

Is it really a $600 blade?

Not really. I don't see the value. Other than their brand name is known to make overbuild, i.e. thick and chunky.
