Pros: Overall Quality
First of all this knife is amazing. With that being said, it did come with a little side to side play. As does almost every benchmade I've ever purchased. Let me be the first to tell you, if you want your blade to hang super loose and flop around like you see everyone have their benchmades set to, expect a little blade play. That's just the way it is! I prefer my blade to be smooth, yet tight and a bit firm. Therefore absolutely zero blade play. When purchasing a benchmade it requires a tiny tiny tighten of the pivot screw to eliminate every spec of blade play. If someone's blade is dangling down when open and they say there is no side to side, they are either lying, or aren't as snobby as me when it come to that specific issue. I wish someone would have cleared this up for me years ago. So to anyone new to a benchmade, don't worry your knife is amazing. Just tighten it a very small amount.
