Wicked fast
Fun to flick open. 420HC is ok, very easy to resharpen. Handle does not fit my hand well and the safety on top of the handle pokes me while I'm cutting. Doesn't see much use anymore :(

Decent knife
If you are into assisted open knives, this is a decent little EDC, gentleman's knife. Not a bad buy for the money. Well made. I used to carry this knife, but over time have come to like manual open folders that are a little larger, but this is a good knife for a small one. It is not that light, so you will notice it is in your pocket for the most part.

Always in my pocket
Best pocket knife I have ever owned for daily use. I have carried it 3+ years so far. Good looking, top quality one hand opener that is the perfect size for a pocket. The Buck Rush stays sharp with quick touch-ups on the crock-sticks. (Always stroke this one backwards first to "uncurl" the edge.) Nothing to improve with this winner, and the price is a bargain.
