Classy Little Knife
I love this knife, the cocobolo handles are beautiful and I really like the deep carry tip up pocket clip. I also like that it is a single position pocket clip, which may be a buzz kill for lefties, but means no extra holes in my handles. The knife didn't come as sharp as some of my other knives, but it is not meant to be a super thin slicer so I don't mind.The knife did come with some minor QC issues, there were large metal shavings in the pivot and one of the handles was loose enough to see light through the knife. I easily removed the shavings and tightened down the handle, but they were noticeable enough issues that I would expect Benchmade to catch them. (Especially since it is made in USA)All in all, I really like the knife and would not part with it for twice what I paid (which is lower on KnifeCenter than anywhere else).
