Good, but a weird thing happened
I just got this knife in the mail half an hour ago. I opened it and found a smudge on the blade, so I started to wipe it off with my thumb, when the blackwash on the blade started to come off onto my thumb and fingers!! I have a number of blackwashed blades, and I have NEVER seen this before. I took a damp sponge and continued to vigorously wipe off the whole blade. The finish came off the grind on both sides, and off the swedge and off the flipper tab. Oddly, the finish stayed on much of the spine and the flat, but not all of the spine. Now most of the grind and swedge area is sort of gray. Just plain weird. Overall, I like the knife, so I'm going to keep it and use it for what I had planned for it all along - a knife to beat up a bit, that I don't have to worry about at all, which is great, because I have a lot of knives that I want to be somewhat careful with. The detent is a bit soft, but if you flip it vigorously, or flick your wrist as you're flipping it, it zips right out, and locks up well, and unlocks well. The handle is SO ergonomic; I love it. The clip works great. This knife looks cool. The backspacer could have been evened out with the handle edges a little better, but no big deal. It's never going to be in somebody's showcase, I don 't think, but overall, I like it a lot and will definitely put it to hard use. I wish it were a slightly better grade of steel, and stainless, because I presume I'll have to watch out for rust a bit on the D2 blade.

Silly issue
I swap this out with 4 others as edc knifes and it has held up fairly well..... . My biggest con is the pocket clip it loosened up about a month in or approx 6 “carries” and when I tried to tighten it it appears the screw or handles are stripped. Unfortunately now there is no way to keep the clip on kind of a bummer for a mid range priced knife.

An absolute monster
I purchased this knife when I was looking for a hefty knife in my favourite steel (D2). I watched maybe two reviews on YouTube before I was sold on it. Be warned however, this knife may not be an EDC for you. It is bulky and strange at first. The instant you open it you feel that top heavy blade and may think the centre of balance is off. At my job I always like to show off my new knives with a few knife nuts there and almost no one liked it at first. The flipper itself is a bit much to press and it really takes some getting use to... However, much like anything else you handle for long enough, eventually it feels like a legitimate extension of your hand.A heavy blade that came extremely sharp out of the box and held a very good edge for a long time. The D2 on this one is well heat treated. The titanium handle *may* have a hotspot or two for the average person, but I found this to be a non-issue after using it.Bottom line, it's just a serious heavy duty hefty folder. If that's what you're looking for, drop the cash and click the buy button.
