Got mine yesterday and this will definitely be my EDC for years to come. The knife is the perfect size for just about any task you may encounter. The whole package is appealing; it just FEELS right, the blade rotates open with a solid click that is satisfying, the blade is thick and beefy, yet tapers to a hair-shaving edge. The build quality is superb, no rough edges, etc, that you would expect in a production folder. The only reason the fifth star is missing is that the knife is TIGHT, to the point of being difficult to open with the studs, and even more difficult to close. I tried the pivot screw tool, but even when extremely loose, it seemed to have no real effect. I've read reviews that talk about the same problem, and the solution seems to involve disassembly and bending, two operations that I am not going to even attempt, as I am not any sort of a knifesmith. Maybe I'll give DPx a call, or someone will post a video. Any rate, this is a minor quibble regarding a terrific second edition of a fantastic knife at a price that can't be beat.
