Overall Nice Knife; Poor OTB Sharpness, Weird Damascus

Very solid knife in theory. Beautiful titanium scales (Goes great with the bestech green lanyard bead for those interested), perfect blade centering, great profile cleaver style. The titanium scales are nicely textured; just enough for some grip but not overly textured. The cleaver style blade hits just right and makes cutting a breeze plus the sharpening choil makes for easy sharpening. The action is excellent with the blade just flying out with the flipper. I have to say this has been my fidget toy of the last month or so. That being said, some of the cons to the blade. The titanium pocket clip doesn't have much springy-ness so to say, so it can be difficult to put in/out the pocket. The biggest con for the blade is the actual blade itself. It seems as though the damascus is just layered over a core of VG-10. Which in itself isn't a bad thing, but it seems a bit uneven between either side. While that can be a nice asymmetrical aesthetic it's something that doesn't come across in the pictures. Secondly it didn't come very sharp out of the box and in fact it almost seemed uneven with the grind starting centered toward the bottom of the blade and leaning toward the left at the tip. I had sharpened it up to a respectable hair-whittling degree but a re-profiling might be in session. For the price of the knife I was hoping for some cohesive knife with a better edge OTB. If you dont mind the cons I'd consider it a great EDC.
