Long Term Review -- great mechanics, lousy steel
Mechanically, the knife is great and it still opens smoothly, locks up perfectly and closes easily and centered. The big disappointment was the 20CV steel. On my knife, it's very fragile and chips far too easily, IMO. Between sharpening, sections of the edge look serrated up close and sharpening takes longer as a result. I sharpen at 20 degrees. Knife has not had hard use -- 50-year-old white-collar guy's edc, basically. I'm a Benchmade fan, but I got a bad one here I think.
