A beast indeed
Maybe I'm the only one who appreciated the ergonomics.. Or perhaps I have the only hand it fits. Orrrr.... It was just designed for fighting. It's great for that, point up/ down, blade in/out. Where thumb placement is set up, the angles allow for optimum grip and thumb pressure. Learn knife fighting, and you'll see how this actually is a great design, save for the thin liner lock and it being slightly recessed (good luck closing with gloves). I've abused this thing for over three years now. I've reviewed the ST6, which I had used for two years at that time (yes, i use multiple knives on a daily basis), and in it I praised the carbonitride titanium coating. Now, after trying to stonewash this just a few weeks ago today, I have more appreciation. Normal coats (coats that aren't this) take me 3+/- hours to complete by hand with a bottle and river stones. About 5 hours or so barely did squat so I gave up. Glorified paint? Not in this case.
