Best 30 bucks I've spent on a knife
I just got this knife today, and have been playing with it. I recently bought a Real Steel Megalodon flipper from Knife Center, and like it a lot, but it is big and might scare people when you pull it out. I was looking for something more discrete and saw this one. I already love it and it will be a new companion. The fit and finish are excellent. The framelock locks up tight and there's no play in the blade when it's open. I've seen some reviews that don't like the G-10 scale on one side and steel on the other, but it works fine for me. It's a very attractive knife. Also, reviews mention that the thumbstuds are useless. However, I find that using the thumbstud and flipper together make it easier to open. Another reviewer's advice to put a couple of drops of oil on it and work it a bit is good. It's opening much easier as it works in. All in all, I can't believe $30 buys this much knife. Amazing how computer controlled machining has brought prices down.
