I am disappointed
I bought this knife as an EDC, and I was interested because of the materials and its design. The knife came out of the box incredibly dull, although the serrated blade was serviceable I'll admit. The carbon fiber scales were absolutely riddled with voids. This wasn't my issue though as looks don't matter much to me. I can say that I'm not used to sharpening a high hardness stainless steel like CTS-XHP, but after about ten minutes I got it hair shaving sharp. My issue with the blade came the next day when I took it to work. I was excited to finally have a stainless knife that wouldn't dull immediately after a day of breaking down cardboard boxes, but alas my knife was somehow dull again before I even got to use it. I couldn't even break skin if I tried. I've resharpened it about 5 times to shaving hair but the results are the same each time. There is something seriously wrong with this knife and I'm starting to wonder if this is the reason Cold Steel switched to S35VN for the Lucky. It is sort of humorous considering its name, but I'm not laughing.
