This knife is outstanding
I have had my black ops knife for two years now, and I love even more than when I got it. The handle looks really cool, the grip in your hand feels great. The 4034.stainless steel blade is the perfect hardness, as it is hard enough to keep a sharp edge, yet soft enough to easily sharpen it to a razor sharp edge. I am a boater and the serrated edge half blade cuts through nylon boat lines much faster than any smooth edge blade. The 3.3 inch blade is a perfect size for easy carry.The best part for me is that with the flipper, I can deploy the blade faster than you can deploy an automatic blade. It closes very easily with one hand. It carries tip up for fast deployment. In a self defense situation, you definitely want a fast deployment.I carry my knife for self defense and utility. I carry it every day and use it a lot, and it still looks great and functions like when it was new.The fun part for me is when a friend asks me if I have, I whip it out, deploy the blade and hand it to him butt first. They always say, wow is that an automaic knife, or they say, now that is a knife. Makes me proud to carry it. I want to buy another one in case I ever lost mine.Last but not least, buying from knifecenter. Com is always a pleasure. The service is great, they are reputable, and very dependable, and you can't beat the price.
