Pros: Blade Material, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Handle Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use
Not bad, but not as good or as sharp as I expected
Overall, this is a nice looking knife that appears to be well made. It opens easily and very smoothly and feels great in the hand. It locks up solid and tight, consistently. That said, it has some shortcomings I wish I'd known more about before buying it as an edc. First, the rotoblock -- it's loose and in a place where my fingers engage it when I open the knife, locking the knife inadvertently. I was able to fix this by tightening down the block and using loctite, hopefully that has solved the issue permanently. I can no longer engage it with one hand as was probably intended, but that's better than having it engage accidentally all the time. For a knife this size, I wish they'd have just left that feature off and trusted the job to the liner lock. The second problem is it's dull. It will only shave a little hair with some effort, and then not well. It will not slice paper at all. Even my two year old never-sharpened Benchmade blows it away in terms of sharpness.That's inexcusable in my book. So, all in all, I'm mildly disappointed in this knife. The issues it has can be addressed, but in this price range they should not be issues at all. I'll keep it. Hopefully with a good sharpening and some time it will prove me wrong in my initial impressions. If so, I'll try to remember to update this review.
