Every thing I expected!

Fantastic EDC knife, I've wanted an Osborne for some time and found it at a great price at NorthRiver Outdoors. Snatched it up! A+

Four Stars

very nice knife, only problem for me it was too heavy for every day carry.

Wrong finish, but still fantastic.

After opening the package up and discovering the satin finish I was quite pleased. I originally wanted the silvery finish because the black finish on blades will wear with time. This knife is smaller than I expected, but is very light and capable. I forget I have it on me at times. The axis lock can be actuated so fast you may think it has an assisted opening. The big this knife worth the $162? I say yes. Now is it 7 times better than a kershaw skyline for everyday carry? Absolutely not. This knife is very cool but on a value scale it has high competition. It is a very well designed knife for people with too much money and an appreciation for an everyday carry knife that will satisfy on many different levels to include easy of use, fit and finish, and somewhat of an exclusivity given it's price point.

Lightweight and an EDC champion!

i purchased this knife and can't stop carrying it! My first knife was a kershaw chill and ever since then, I have been searching for a higher quality knife that feels light and doesn't take up space in my pocket. The S30V steel performs at a top level with great edge retention. Most people don't like the "modified drop point" blade and prefer the 940, however, having this style blade reduces the weight of the knife, making it all the better to carry.

The only downside to this knife is the aluminum handle. After time, it will get scratched and its a texture that takes some getting used to
