Cons: Weight, Overall Quality
Blade Centering....
A little on the heavy side. I love the look and feel of this knife...bought a Vantage Force Pro for the same price. It's lighter with g10 handles and has better steel...I use this for EDC as well..I love the handles on much grip for aluminum! They nailed the clip. The fact there is no thumb studs is no deal breaker for me for this just aids in ease of sharpening this very nice acute angle...good job BUCK. The blade centering is terrible on almost every Vantage knife I've laid my eyes upon...ranging from slightly off to touching the liner. I've taken several apart and was able to correct them with about a 70% success rate. The blades which were slightly off center functioned fine after cleaning and properly lubing. I had to open and close some of them over the course of several weeks to get a desirable smoothness for the flipper to really shine.Out of the box the flipper was crap on three of them "I own five" and the other two were pretty smooth..but no were near what I was hoping for. The fact I own five of these "various models" should be a dead give away that I do in fact enjoy the knife after some modifications.The time I had to spend fooling around on these knives to get them to my standards earned them 3 out of 5 stars. If you have no tolerance for lack of quality control or expect something to be perfect out of the box this might not be the knife for you. However BUCK has an outstanding warranty and costumer service.... and with a little patients will solve most problems.

Get the FRN handle model instead!
Right off, this knife will rip the bejeezus out of your pocket! The aluminum handle is a nightmare! Rough, graggy and just totally uncomfortable to the touch. Hey, if you can't easily grip a knife, why buy it? Get the FRN handle Vantage instead. I reviewed that earlier and it's a spectacular buy for the money. Plus, it feels great in the hand.
