Use Every Day
Great knife and probably my favorite to date for everyday use. Holds a nice edge just as many of my other knives made with S30v steel. I like the linear sliding push saftey to keep it closed. My only hang up is the locking pin for when its open. It often adhears to the adjoining metal too securely, making closing the blade difficult.
Beautifully crafted with the best material for the price. It lost a star because the flipper mechanism gets stuck sometimes like the safety is on—even when the safety is off.
i have 85-100 knives and this is my favorite or my #1 . Its a beautiful large chrome spear s30v blade like a mirror finish. The flipper has a spring in it you barely have to touch it and it FLINGS out FAST. Its light in weight and has a deep pocket clip which is for me a big deal i either wont buy the knife or i go get a deep carry . Just trust my review please , i know its $191 trust me i know , BUT it is the BEST knife i ever handled .
