seriously thinking about getting a second one
It is beautiful. I wanted a folding knife with linen micarta scales for a while, and here it is. Titanium bolsters make it look even better. The knife also has very appealing shape. It is very well designed - if you carry tip down. Few companies that use spydie hole on a knife for opening get it right, besides Spyderco. Here, the opening hole is done just right and very easy to use. The pocket clip is low profile, although not deep carry. The clip is short enough so that the micarta part of the handle doesn't rub against your pocket and ruin it. The quality is good. I found no blemishes, except the blade is very very slightly off center, which is not unusual for liner lock knives in this price range. The lock has nice early locking, and looks thick enough. The knife has bronze washers and the opening is very smooth. The blade is shaving sharp out of the box. The blade steel is 440C, which is a good steel, but not a super steel. Overall, very good knife, and most definitely a good value.
