Awesome knife
Build quality is terrific. Strongest assisted opener I've ever experienced. The blade slams open. Break in period is necessary. At first it can be tough to deploy the blade. Aesthetics of the knife are awesome. Love the skull logos, handle scales and blade details. Can't miss purchase. And this is all coming from a guy that used to hate SOG knives. They nailed it with this one.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Easy to handle and open. Has a good grip that won't slip when the blade flies open, also has a lock to keep it from opening I your pocket. I am well pleased with it.

Almost a perfect knife
The VG-10 blade is beautiful and very sharp out of the box. It's an excellent size and shape. The handle feels excellent in the hand. I love the contoured exterior and the texture of it. Great color too. I wouldn't change a thing about it. The assisted opening is tough at first. It took around 120-150 opening before it became smoother and easier. Out of the box, it was incredibly stiff and the spring had a "gritty" sound. After break-in, it's excellent. It does take some practice to be able to open it smoothly and easily. With some of my friends, even after showing them how to do it, they struggled. I find it easier to engage the flipper from the backside with my middle finger, rather than the top side with my thumb. YYMV. The stainless liner has some beautiful machining and polish work on the back spine. Much appreciated. And the clip is very comfortable and easy to manipulate. I love that it's designed for deep concealment in the pocket. My one and only complaint is the loose lock-up. For a $150 knife, it's should lock up extremely tight. Even all of my $30-90 CRKT knives lock up extremely tight. But this one does not. It's not terrible, but there's obvious room for improvement, which is much needed. This isn't the only review to state this either. And this is why I ding this review one star. I hope SOG can correct the lock-up issue. They will have a very impressive knife if they do. This one issue aside, I am still very pleased with this knife and would recommend it.

Update
After 3 weeks of using this knife, I have decided to return it. As it breaks in and becomes easier to open, blade lock-up becomes looser. After 3 weeks, it's now unacceptable. It literally moves back and forth over 1/4" when opened and locked. Sending this back for a refund. I really hope SOG can fix this issue.
