The grey part of the handle is a rubber-like substance which make it very grippy. The orange part just feels like hard plastic. The blade itself is very sharp and opens smoothly. The lock is very secure and easy to disengage.
This is my first Benchmade knife and I like it very, very much.
I would consider this just about as perfect of a EDC knife as my previous EDC ( Rat 1). To be honest my only gripe with this knife is its grip-y scales. Its a grivory base, overmolded with a rubbery texture, in hand its awesome. But trying it get back in my pocket it gets stuck to my pocket. Thats a minor issue along with the recurve on the blade which makes the knife a little harder to resharpen. The came fairly sharp with a rather coarse grind, i resharpened mines immediatly and its a whole lot better now.
Great steel ( resharpened: this knife is a razor and holds a great edge)
Fits in pocket really well
Nice in hand feel
Great fit and finish
Has a good weight to it
Sticky when trying to get it back into pocket
Recurve is difficult to sharpen
Not a deep carry ( personal preference)
Knife is priced at the higher end of an entry level benchmade
