Pros: Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: Blade Material, None
What a looker! But...
Really unique looking knife with excellent build quality. Deployment of the blade runs smooth as silk. The Veff serrations also add to its odd look, yet are very functional for cutting fabric. However be careful not to use them with tough materials, I tried cutting a pp strapping band and the blade chipped at the serrations. The Chinese budget steel they used might also be held partially accountable for this which is kind of a bummer for me, it renders the knife not suitable for my rather abusive EDC tasks at work. The sensitivity of the Veff serrations in combination with the budget steel would have been nice to know, but if you read this I am glad you won't be doing the same mistake as I did. Generally I am pleased by the looks and the overall build quality of this knife and I'll just keep it as a collector's item.
