Pros: Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Makes a great EDC
Bought one and got it a little over a week ago,this is a very well made knife,not too big yet not too small,just the right size,I've only done a little cutting with it,opened a few packages et cetera however it's quite sharp out of the box,slices paper with the best of them. Construction is spot on,no little miss steps like bad grinds or parts out of alignment the only issue was the blade was out of alignment because the pivot screw was loose and would loosen up with use so a drop of blue loctite fixed that. One thing this knife isn't is a fancy show off piece,it's a tool and it uses washer over bearings so don't expect it to glide open and closed I have to use my finger to flip it shut after I unlock it,but they say the washers keep grit out and I can see how a bearing knife could flop shut on one's fingers so I'm fine with the washers,also this isn't a flyweight it's got a solid feel to it but you folks who like the sub four ounce jobs may stroke out. If you happen to be left handed there's an extra pocket clip in the box for you,just unscrew the one on the knife and install the other,a nice extra on Steel Will's part since the clip is contoured rather then straight. No complaints I like the thing with nothing bugging me about it. I'll see about another review in a few months but for now I'm very happy with this,honestly more then with the Artisan knife I bought last month.
