Great for the money
I recently recieved mine. First off mine came the more expensive M-VX steel and while it has the red rings at the pivot but not the back spacer as advertised. I actually like it becuase it conceals better with the black backspacer/ring. Lock up is bank vault solid. No up or down or side to side blade play. Lock up was so strong until it broke it it was quite hard to manipulate and unlock. But now after a few days of breaking in I can flick the blade out just fine and fast. and locks up solid. Phonsphor Bronze washers were a surprise since I expected teflon at this price point. The blade and opening is smooth. And mine came razor sharp out of box. Tt has revearsible pocket clip that allows for tip up, left or right carry, standard or revearse grip draws.With this you can also put a zip tie on the opening hole and zip tie wave it in either grip, with practice even allowing for a draw strike. Also the ring is nicely sized and should fit most people. I don't have small hands but find it to have plenty of room and I have no problem performing various karambit tricks.
