    Simple yet Sophisticated Style

    Elegant, unique, and ultra-functional, the Vosteed Psyop strikes a great balance between its sleek minimalistic aesthetics and its high functionality. 

    True to Geoff’s design concept, Psyop is filled with surprising small details: the show side pivot and collar are flushed with the Titanium handle; the 3D milled Titanium pocket clip is fixed onto the handle with hidden screw sets. 

    This backspacer also has a dedicated lanyard attachment hole. Furthermore, to enhance comfort, the inside of the Titanium handles is CNC milled for weight relief.

     

    Workhorse for the Tasks

    Milled from a 0.157”(4mm) thick Elmax steel blank, the blade of Psyop has excellent wear resistance, good corrosion resistance, and high dimensional stability. The 0.137” (3.5mm) thick (finished) Elmax blade has both a generously ground belly for effortless slicing and a pointed tip for accurate piercing. Whether you're slicing through packages, performing detailed tasks, or tackling outdoor activities, the Psyop is up to the challenge.

    Available in four configurations, the Psyop comes in two colorways and two handle finishes:

    (1) Curved Versions: The Titanium handles are contoured to maximize its clean aesthetics and ergonomics. Combined with a light glass bead blasted Gray PVD Titanium Coating, the handle is not only great to hold but also has a sense of grippiness in adversary conditions.

    (2) Patterned Versions: This version features CNC-milled diamond patterns on a well-chamfered flat handle. The geometrical patterns not only add a retro and more traditional appearance for the Pysop but also offer additional tractions for great control over the knife for challenging tasks.

     

    Intuitive and Fun Action

    The Psyop features a button-operated Top-liner lock, which combines intuitive operation, high sturdiness, as well as fun fidget experiences. 

    The oval-shaped Titanium button is easy to access and fits the overall knife style seamlessly. Equipped with a ceramic ball-bearing system, the Psyop can be smoothly deployed with both a front flipper and thumbhole.

    Especially, the height and angle of the front flipper are precisely engineered for ultimate thumb swipe open action. Once the knife is deployed, the front flipper will merge with the continuation line of the handle to form an eye-pleasing sleek profile.

    Well built but confusing design

    This is a fidgeteers dream but far from being a utilitarian's go to. A cutting tool with too little cutting edge. The blade tip could've extended to the butt end, the button could be round and not rectangular to accommodate more edge, even a few mm makes a difference. Just my 2 cents.

    Several design flaws

    Really wanted to like the Psyop, but after having it in hand for a few weeks I've noticed some design flaws. Vosteed loves to have as many deployment methods as possible and it seems that there should have been a back flipper on this knife, but for some reason it was taken off. The problem is that the handle was not changed and you can still see the design for it. On top there's a scope where the flipper should have been and the biggest issue is the handle poking into the finger choil area, again where the flipper would be when opened. Lastly, when closed there's at least 5mm more handle then blade. Is it because of the lanyard hole that no one wants?

    This could have been a great knife if they just would have just fine tuned the handle.
