Unboxing and first impressions of the Yon Xanadu YX751

In this video I'll unbox a very interesting new model from Yon Xanadu knives - the YX751.
It is a budget version of their YX750 which has a titanium handle and VG10 blade.
The knife is quite large and has a 4" blade made from 14C28N Sandvik steel.
From first impressions the pros are relatively low weight (for the size), smooth action, nice grippy handle material (contoured micarta) with good ergonomics and thin straight symmetrical grind.
The cons are a high position of the pocket clip and limited access to disengage the liner lock.
If you liked the video please give it a like and comment your thoughts on this blade and Yon Xanadu knives in general.
