Originally disappointed, now a favorite
When I first got this knife, I was rather deeply disappointed. Most of my good knives were Benchmade or William Henry, and the fit and finish on this SOG were a far cry from that on those other knives. Yes, that stud cutout was SHARP! It annoyed me that the thumb ramp didn’t smoothly meet the jimping on the blade. I didn’t really like the plasticky feel of the handle, and I wanted some jimping where the thumb would rest in icepick hold. /// Now, however, it is one of my favorite knives. Over time, the thumb cutout smoothed out. The handles are worn and warm. The blade leaps out with a slight snap of my wrist, and the lock is Solid. I really like the design of the clip. The weight of handles and blade are in terrific balance, you can easily maneuver the knife into different positions. I love the shape of the blade and the quality of its steel. Give this knife a chance, it’ll grow on you.

One critical flaw. (at least for me)
I am a big fan of this knife but in my use with it I have found one thing that makes it hard for use. The cut out for the thumb stud feels atrocious after a few minutes of hard gripping. While i cutting start feeling some sharp pain in my index finger meat. I really do like the knife otherwise, but with that design I won't be carrying it.
