I've had both auto and manual MOD Dieter's (I's), and observe the following:

3) The blade "bushings" are integrally milled highspots in the frame. Again, hardened tool steel rubbing on anodized aluminum. Hmmmmm....
MOD has some great designs, but (to me) leave something to be desired in the execution.

I carry the Benchmade 9100 Stryker Tanto . . . excellent feel and solid. Also like the CRKT Desert Cruiser SF - it's affordable, solid and all around great knife. Just ordered (e-bay) Cold Steel Recon I. Will see if it is as good as my research says. Happy Hunting!!!

Anybody try an M.O.D.?
I don't have an auto, but I have a manual Dieter mk IV.
Here's a pic w/my carry pistol, and some of my collection.

Take a look at http://www.pvknife.com - more auto openers than you could ever want. I've not personally dealt with them but a close friend has and is impressed with their service.

No laughter on the forum and absolutely no having a good time.
You were warned.

<<<rolls a flashbang at the feet of the "Lead Moderator" and remembers the saying......"Its all fun and games till someone gets hurt......then its hilarious".
I am pretty sure that its goning to be the MOD Mk 2. There is a knife show later this month here in Dallas so I'll wait till then. Hope Sal Glasser is there because he is an awsome guy and always gives great advice. (Much like you guys...but without the no laughing rules)
