Better than expected!
This is my new EDC knife and has quickly become my all time favorite. The large textured scales provide a secure, non slip purchase when handling. The blade has three razor sharp edges straight out of the box and appear to hold thier edge very well. I haven't had to sharpen it yet so I'm not sure how easy it will be. The bottle opener is a great feature and will get plenty of use from me as well! I like the idea of the glass breaker point on the handle, it may come in handy. The blade is very easy to open and has a stout lockup. Also closes easily with no binding, very smooth! One thing I wish it had was some refinement on the grooves on the back side of the handle. What I'm referring to is that the liner has grooves but the composite center "spine" is smooth and somewhat proud of the liner thus the grooves are almost not even functional. The spine portion should have carried the grooves across the width from each side liner to aid in grip. My only real con is the clip feels thin and is extremely tight to the knife, when clipped to a pocket it is hard to deploy and feels like it will rip my pants if I'm not careful when pulling it out. I'm going to try to bend it away slightly but worried it might snap. If I can get it to a happy place then this knife is all pros, no cons!!!
