Great Modern Traditional
No matter if you are a traditional fan, or a modern/ tactical fan, this knife will appease both ends of the spectrum. I became a fan of Real Steel when I purchased a Megaladon a few years back, so I had no issue pulling the trigger on this one at the sale price ($39). Great "gentleman's" knife, well suited for work, play, or dress. The pictures don't do the blade any justice. You will be pleasantly surprised by the high quality fit and finish. The Gslip is a little taller and slightly longer than a traditional trapper pattern, and include a half-stop, that's more 3/4 of the way to the open position.

Pick one up at a low introductory price.
Great retelling of a gentleman’s slip joint folder. The current trend of merging old school knife tech and modern materials and techniques needs to be supported. This knife is a very nice example of that amalgamation working. Bonus, it’s at a budget price. It looks great. It’s slim but the length still fills the hand nicely. Expect some variation in the micarta from the pictures. My example is lighter in color. Also, the stop on the blade is not at halfway like a traditional slip joint. The first stop on this knife closer to seventy five percent. No real complaints. It’s a light duty slip joint. Keep your expectations reasonable and you won’t be disappointed.

Knifecenter and Reel Steel nailed it!
and Reel Steel hit it out of the park with this one.If you like modern sip joints, you really should consider checking this one out. The straight simple design of the handle is comfortable, then add the feel of the beautiful micarta, and it just takes it to another level. Most modern slip joints are 3" or under on the blade length, but this one is 3.46 inches, which I much prefer. The nicely done drop point, with the fuller running the entire length is both useful, and good looking. The Walk and talk is done quite well, with a 3/4 open half stop.The fit and finish is excellent. I love the deep carry wire pocket clip too.Top it all off with a blade that came very very sharp, and it's a real hit. I really can't say enough about this knife. This knife is useful, comfortable, and good looking, and the price was more than fair at just under $40 for the introductory Christmas sale, but honestly, even if you missed the sale, it is well worth the money at the full retail price. VG10 steel tends to get a bad rap with the modern powdered steels available today, but at this price point, I see nothing wrong with it. It is certainly better than the 8CR steel so many other knife makers use at this price point, and truthfully, I prefer it to the D2 that the market has been flooded with lately. It sharpens easy, takes a very keen edge, holds it reasonably well, and it's stainless .KnifeCenter got it to me quick as they always do, and packaged well so damage during shipping is highly unlikely. Just a great job all around. Thank you KnifeCenter! You've quickly become my favorite knife outlet! Tim

So far, pretty awesome
Just got the knife today so the review will be limited to 1st impressions. First off, I’m a fan of the modern take on the traditional pocket knife (I have two benchmade propers). This comes very sharp right out the box. The natural micarta is an usual look and it will be interesting to see how it colors over time. The walk and talk is very nice and the fuller makes it very easy to open. Great knife especially for the price.

Cons: None
Heck of a product at this price point.
The design itself is just fantastic. Perfect blend of contemporary and traditional and the proportions are exceptionally well balanced. Feels great in hand and is a very capable cutting tool. Came nice and sharp with impressively clean, consistent, even grinds. The overall fit and finish is top notch, especially at this price. My only criticism is I think the backspring could be a touch stronger but I'm use to Great Easterns and the lighter spring tension on this is still plenty strong to be a capable tool. Love that they went the extra mile and put in a functional half-stop too!
