Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Cons: Overall Quality, None
It will do for small jobs
Design flaw allows the blade to contact support pin in handle when closed.Needs a blade stop to prevent chipping of blade. Good steel,seems to hold an edge well. Shipping was spot on.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Blade Material, Weight, Handle Material, None
Cons: Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Ease of Opening
Not impressed
It's a great size and shape and feels nice to hold. And the S30V at this price is a good deal..however it's my second higher end vantage..and the second one which is slow to open and has terrible blade centering. You can tweak it to open decently but then it rubs the blade on the frame..the centering is really very poor..and when you get it even somewhat centered..It will not flip all the way open without a big whip if the wrist. I will keep it because I collect..but it won't see any carry time most likely and I won't buy another vantage. Also the video reviews online tell the same experience I've had.

Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Cons: None
Light, holds edge, very we'll made. A little hard to sharpen. I am rough on a knife and this one has proved itself. I was a little hesitant with the S30V steel. I'm not the least disappointed now. I will be buying larger knife now for hunting purposes.
