My first Case Knife...but not my last.
I'm kind of afraid to use this knife because of how pretty it is. The bolsters are bright and shiny and the polish on the blade is almost glass smooth. That being said, it's quite functional. The edge is sharp, lockup is very positive, and, despite how the locking liner protrudes from the handle, I never feel like the blade will close inadvertently. I only have two small gripes and they're mostly just a matter of my own personal preferences. One is that the red bone handle scales are brighter in person that what the online images depict.Think maraschino cherry red. Second is that trying to open the blade, with one hand via the blade spur, is a rather laborious venture. It's stiff. Neither of these things really bother me, but I figured I would mention them. Altogether, this is a nice knife.
