Not as Great as I Thought
I already reviewed this when I got it, and now after using it for a few months, I have some additional comments. 1.) The liner lock pushes the blade off-center when it's closed. It isn't a huge issue, but over time, it can wear on the inside of the handle. 2.) For a $100 "knifemakers" knife, I would expect better steel, it's okay but doesn't hold an edge as well as many other steels in the same class. 3.) Due to the Field Strip feature, there is a lot of play in the blade when open. It's a nice idea, but I don't really need to disassemble this so I would rather see a version without that and a better blade. 4.) The action is still a bit sluggish, you have to give the flipper a good push or the blade stalls half-open. Overall I still love the design and blade shape. It's a good EDC but with a few refinements, it could be a great one.
