The pinnacle of the EDC.
First off...hats off to knife center. I ordered this knife, (my third blade from KC), knowing it was on back order, and after a few weeks, I contacted them to ask about my order status. I was emailed back within the hour and given an update. They truly are a customer first retailer and I'll do all my blade shopping with them as long as my money and blade obsession holds out. Secondly, the Osborne 470-1. To say this is a perfect EDC is an understatement. The fit, and finish, and sheer craftsmanship is really something you have to have in one's hand to explain. The edges are smooth and refined. The aluminum powder coating is superb. It came (nearly) razor sharp right out of the box and frankly just felt like something from a custom shop. Very little blade play, (some is expected from an assisted), and nothing short of damn sexy. Get one, it's worth every penny.
