Leaves a bit to be desired
While I like the design of this knife on the aesthetic side, functionally, it leaves me wanting a bit more. I like the overall shape of the blade and handle, and the stonewashed finish offset by the black hardware and back spacer looks great. In the hand however, it starts to lose me. The thumb stud, while visually interesting, ends up being a bit too smooth, and I find my thumb slipping on it every other time I attempt to open the knife. The location finger choil in the scales makes the knife sit oddly in my hand, as if its sitting too far from the blade. The steel scales add a nice weight to this knife without overdoing it, and the frame lock is quite good. For the price, this isn't a bad knife, but it's not something I would EDC.
