It's time for a Vantage Force 2...
Pretty impressive knife. Knife handle is a good size to hold on to. My only gripe is the handle is too smooth. It is very slippery. It's time for Buck to come out with the next version of this knife.

Could have been great.
Bought this to retire my excellent Kershaw blur from my every day carry spot. The design is nothing short of excellence. The thumb hole gives great purchase and the flipper is nicely jimped. The steel takes a great edge and especially easy to sharpen. The handle scales are medium traction from, but the butt end of the handle flares out, providing you with great grip on the knife. Unfortunately, the materials in this design are very low quality. After 6 months or so, the lock up has failed. The liner lock has been worn away to the point that it is touching the other liner. There is a few millimeters of movement in the blade from front to back and I can't seem to adjust the pivot to a point where it flips easily, and doesn't have any side to side movement. This will be getting sent back to buck.

58 HRC!
My first Buck in a very long time and I'm not disappointed. There's a lot of bad reviews on the blade alignment when closed; no problem here. Blade play is next to nothing, excellent. One thing I must say is that this knife is without a doubt the sharpest manufacturer's edge I've EVER received. Sharper than Spyderco, CRKT,...anyone! You can cut fine ribbons off sheets of paper. After 3 weeks of light duty use(cardboard mostly) the edge is still nearly that sharp so I am impressed. Way to go, Buck! So, 58 HRC, that to me said "don't buy the Pro, save the money" and it'll be very close, but
