AUS-8 Steel
AUS-8 is a Japanese medium-carbon, high-chromium stainless steel. One word says it all, "balance." It offers exceptional balance between toughness, edge sharpness, and corrosion resistance. Balance provides lasting value. AUS-8 ranks among the hardest, toughest, and most rust-resistant knife alloys. It's a trusted favorite that enthusiasts prefer time and again.

Carbonitride Titanium
Carbonitride Titanium is one of the hardest surface treatments containing titanium. Harder than carbide. Harder than chrome. Our proprietary process creates a permanent molecular bond with the blade surface. Will not flake, blister, chip, or peel. A complex crystalline structure forms which protects the blade surface against wear, staining, and damage. Made in Taiwan or China

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Overall Quality, None
Not impressed
The opening system will take some break in time but is mechanically sound. They used good steel for the blade and G10 handles are also a positive. Unfortunately where they saved money is in the liners to include the liner lock. I was stunned when I saw how thin the liners are. I was equally sickened when I saw the liner lock function during lock up. This knife will not please those who have a discerning eye and appreciate solid knife construction. I'd go with an Ontario RAT 1 folder or a Utilitac which are far superior in every aspect and a little less money.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
Great knife. However....
This knife is great. Perfect feel. Sharp blade. Quick-Release is different, but works great. However, this knife may cause problems for the lower IQ knife owner. It does not use the spring mechanism for the quick opening, like Kershaw has in their "speed safe" folders. It uses a "push and slide" thumb action. After 2-3 minutes of working with it, I can now open it faster than my Kershaw spring loaded folder. So, if you arent a lazy person with fat fingers, youll love this knife. If you are, however, a lazy fat sausage finger person, youll want to stick to a fixed blade and continue down that path in life.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
You have got to be kidding..... I own over 200 knives,, benchmade, sog, kershaw, boker, microtech,, etc.... and this is probably the BEST knife for the money that I own.... the quick opener is AWESOME..... I dont understand why you couldnt learn how to use it in 45 minutes,, but im guessing you must be a paraplegic,, its soooooo easy to use, and opens the knife lightning fast...... the aus 8 steel is great, that coupled with the great darrel ralph design makes for a strong reliable knife made for hard use... how can you complain for $40.... this knife would be a value at $60...... take some time to learn about knives and im sure youll agree...
