just got it and its love at first sight
I received this knife a few days ago and compared it to other folders that I own. Buck, Benchmade, The blade is extremely sharp. I'm anxious to see how long it stays that way with limited use. I like the shape of the blade and the handle. I was surprised to find I needed to oil the blade to prevent rusting,, but that's my ignorance of various steels. My disappointment of the knife is the opening and closing of the blade. My Buck, which is not my favorite works a lot easier, but the best is the benchmade. When I press the button on the benchmade the blade is loose and I can either flip it open or closed without touching the blade. The Spyderco is not loose to open though smooth and a little complicated to close because the hinge is stiff. I oiled it and that helped a little but not much.
