Very impressive!
This knife is gorgeous, sexy yet looks intimidating and masculine at the same time. Not an easy feat.For such a large knife, it carries like one my many smaller knives. Lightweight, smooth edges, you almost forget that its in your pocket. Fast deployment, and locks with an authoritative thwack! Once open, the lockup is strong with zero movement whatsoever, feels like a fixed blade. The coating on the Titanium frame is amazingly grippy and the contour fits perfectly in my meaty hands. Closing with one hand is a cinch with the time tested liner style lock, this has no liner and uses the handle stock in the same manner. The knife glides into the pocket with ease without snagging and the clip effortlessly slips outside the pocket without missing a beat. One hand operation is important in my line of work and in my experience the liner style lock is the most practical as it allows full control of the knife upon closing minimizing the chance of dropping it when up on a ladder or down into the abyss. The ceramic bearings are amazing with no friction and no wiggle whatsoever. The blade rests perfectly centered within the frame when closed. The blade is M390 Bohler steel. You can shave with this straight out of the box! M390 holds an edged like nobody's business and is still easy to sharpen. This is my favorite steel for reasons mentioned and the contour is practical for my work and looks amazing with the two tone finish. I've never seen a blade as aesthetically pleasing as this. I could stare at it all day. I believe that after thirty five years, I've almost found the perfect knife. If only it was made in USA. However, it wouldn't be fair to call this a Chinese knife because of the quality, craftsmanship, fit finish, asthetics and attention to detail. To be fair, this is an outstanding knife from a manufacturer that takes great pride in their work. This knife is absolutely flawless and a bargain at twice the price.
