Quickly became one of my favorite knives...
I mostly use my Schrade OTF for breaking down cardboard boxes and an occasional plastic tie I run into while working on an old computer. I love that it has very little play in the extended blade, more like the OTF's with a third digit on the price. The price to quality is unmatched. And like most OTF's, the cool factor was what it's often all about. Closing the knife may be bit more difficult than you would like, but it's the sole reason for the ultra-fast ejection and the sinister sound it creates... I have a Schrade Gen 3 OTF. And though it had the same quality of fast, sinister sounding ejection, they way it was designed was awkward. This new Gen 4 design was many of us were looking for. That thumb button release lets you hold the knife in a natural position. If they can get it to retract and keep the price near the same, they will put all other lower priced OTF's and some higher priced one's Out of Business. Anyone who who loves knives should have one; Price is right and fun to play with all day long
