BH15BW01SL: Be-Wharned Folding Knife

The wharncliffe blade design is one of the most functional utility patterns ever developed. Thanks to the efforts of edged-weapon designer and trainer Michael Janich, it has also earned a reputation as an incredibly potent personal defense design. Janich’s BLACKHAWK! Be-Wharned folding knife features an aggressive, satin-finished AUS8A stainless steel blade that provides extreme cutting performance for its size. It is mated to a handle constructed of hardened 420J stainless steel liners nested into textured black G-10 scales. A sturdy liner-lock mechanism, exceptional ergonomics, and a four-position clothing clip complete the package, making the BLACKHAWK! Be-Wharned folding knife one of the most advanced tactical folding knives available today.

Pros: None
Cons: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material
UPDATED* This knife has had ZERO "hard use" and the liner is slightly bent.. making the knife useless (hard to open) IMHO. Other people seem to have similar problems with the knife being difficult to open and it's now obvious to me that there's a design flaw. Don't waste your money!

Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Good Quality Folder
I use this knife as an edc and i really love it. It came very sharp out of the box and feels good in the hand. The pocket clip is great and rides low and out of the way. Handle material is very textured and rough, but seems to get better after time (or i'm getting used to it). The handle is also great when wet, losing almost nothing in terms of grip. Stiff to open at first, but as it's loosened up it has retained a crisp feeling. Great knife for a mid-level price. I would recommend this to a friend for sure.
