Cons: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Blade Material
Steel is absolute garbage
Just about everything about this knife feels good in hand, great look, no play in blade. The problem I face is the mystery steel. I don’t know where they dug up this “stainless steel” but it sucks. It’s equivalent to safety scissors they have in kindergarten as far as sharpness. I really wanted to like this knife but what’s the point of making a knife that doesn’t hold an edge and can’t cut paper after its been sharpened?

Pros: Handle Feel, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
I wanted to love this knife. I love the blade shape, size, and feel in the hand. But build quality, and overall build quality is abysmal. The lock switch always switches to “safe” in pocket constantly. I learned to just hit the switch when pulling it out, worked ok for a few weeks, then it just started to rattle itself apart. Horrible blade play, even the scales themselves started to wiggle around. No amount of tinkering and loctite would fix it. This knife has potential, but it just can’t compete with other knives that can be had with better materials, and an equal, or even lesser price. This knife has been relegated to the junk drawer to live the rest of its days in exile

Just felt like it was slow to opening and the handle felt cheap. once you got the lock to work or not work it was fair. I gave it a 3. Would I buy another no.
