Cons: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Handle Feel
There's a lot of hype
Honestly, this knife is great for it's purpose, a lightweight, useful knife. But I also think this is a 100 dollar knife at best.I'm disappointed with it for 2 reasons. The first being blade centering. A knife nearing 150 dollars should have essentially perfect blade centering. On a scale of 1-100 and 50 is dead center, this knife was about 25 out of the box. Which is literally unacceptable for this price point...The second reason this knife let me down is because the CF Elite is still not enough to combat the flex of the scales. You can still squeeze and pinch the scales. Looking inside the knife the scales are milled out. For no reason! I'd rather them be filled and have even better rigidity than being milled and save 4 grams of weight... (that being said, I will be getting Flytanium scales)Other notes are, the axis lock sticks SUPER hard at first. Which I've read that it's a piece you need to break in, which is fine enough, it's not a big deal. I just feel let down by the price point compared to the finished product. Don't let my initial thoughts fool you though, the knife came amazingly sharp and does the intended job being lightweight and effective, it's just probably over hyped. (The deep carry pocket clip is more than welcomed)

Much Improved
The scales on this knife are so much better than what came on the original bugout. The handle feels a lot sturdier. Knife came centered and the action is perfect. An excellent upgrade over the previous model.
