Makes a great EDC
I've owned one of these for few months now.Carried it and it to work,some heavy work i might add.Stood up to it all flawlessly.The 440c takes and holds an edge very well.One of my favorite steels of all times.Put a mirror polish on it and its as sharp as anything else,supersteels included.The only thing supersteel does better is edge retention.But 440c is tougher and more stain restaint then some of them are.It was at one time a supersteel in it's day.But I feel it's still a very good all round steel.The fit and finish are very will done.Compares very easily to anything in it's price range and place of manufacture.I'd say it exceeed some by having a 440c blade.I beleive 440c holds it edge longer than the chinese made made steel.Blade lock is solid and very positive,no movement at all.A good stong lock as it should be.The coating on the blade and frame are well well done. And is hold up well well so far.For the price i think you would be hard pressed to find a better made knife.I'd recommend it to anyone wanting a good solid EDC.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Type, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Blade Material
Great bang for the buck
Easy to carry with the carabiner or the strong deep pocket clip. The lock up is rock solid with no blade wiggle at all. Only downside to this is sharpening the inner recurve,but with the flat edge you will never really dull it. This is truly a great buy for the price.! Great for EDC and also for self defense.

Great knife, not such a great Karambit
Pro's: The fit and finish on this knife are outstanding given the $30 price tag. The frame lock is stiff as others have mentioned but given that whenever you hold the blade you are touching the lock, I wouldn't want the lock to be any more loose. Speaking of the frame lock, the lack of spacer on the back side of the handle makes this knife exceptionally slim, coming in at under.1/2 inch. The side without the G 10 is finished in a nice gun metal silver/black color. Cons: The gigantic pocket clip. This thing is huge and a little gaudy. It can be mounted for tip up or down carry, left or right side but sticks out like a sore thumb. The handle is a little too big to use as a proper karambit.and shaped in such a way to only make tip forward (think screwdriver) grip comfortable. The gimping on the blade is aggressive and provides a non-slip point for the thumb, but there is nothing like this on the bottom of the handle for tip down handling.
