Good Knife
Got this knife today came extremely sharp from the manufacturer. Only flaws of this knife are the right hand side pivot screw was a little loose, and there is a slight bend in the blade near the tip. I don't know if this happened when shipped to me or if it was that way out of the factory, that being said it does not affect the point or the straightness of the edge.

Great knife
First i'd like to day that knife centers customer service is top notch! I cannot stress this enough! As for the knife lets start with the cons. Quartermaster is not as well known or established as other companies so i have no idea about their customer support /product warranty etc. The knife did not come with any information about product warranties or anything of that nature so thats a bit of a question mark. The other red flag for me is the fact that the blade steel is not marked on the blade itself... this is a bit odd to me bc its almost an industry standard to do so. Nevertheless I gave the knife a chance and im quite pleased that i did! It feels great in the hand, no noticeable hot spots that i can tell. The knif is very slim and surprisingly light! The pocket clip is very good, strong enough to keep it in the pocket even while jumping on a trampoline but doesn't snag when pulled out of the pocket. The blade design is very attractive and functional. Great for cutting cardboard boxes and the tip is ideal for cutting plastic wrap without damaging the item wrapped inside. I work in a warehouse so these are MY two main concerns. Has held an edge well so far but it has only been a few days so take that as you like. The ball bearing pivot system makes for lighting fast deployment. It does have a substantial amount of detent but once that is overcome the blade snaps into place nicely. No blade play or lock rock at all. The blade centering was off by a bit but it does not inhibit performance at all and is easily fixed. Overall i am very happy with the knife and would recommend it to anyone willing to roll the dice on a lesser known company. There are plenty of forum rumors going around about quartermaster but i prefer to let the product speak for itself. I don't foresee this knife leaving my side anytime soon. Hope this review is helpful.

Quartermaster Mr. Roper
Where I know the materials were of good quality, I believe the human element let me down. A card providing the number of my product was included in the box, and it had an employee's name listed who certified the quality of the resulting product. They were either sight impaired or untrained. The knife's edge had a wave pattern as if the sharpening device they used was misaligned or the operator was unaware of how to operate said device. Once again, the design of the knife is appealing, I will have to invest work to make the edge function properly. Not what I expect from a $150 knife. I say go with a Benchmade or Spyderco.
