A beast indeed
Maybe I'm the only one who appreciated the ergonomics.. Or perhaps I have the only hand it fits. Orrrr.... It was just designed for fighting. It's great for that, point up/ down, blade in/out. Where thumb placement is set up, the angles allow for optimum grip and thumb pressure. Learn knife fighting, and you'll see how this actually is a great design, save for the thin liner lock and it being slightly recessed (good luck closing with gloves). I've abused this thing for over three years now. I've reviewed the ST6, which I had used for two years at that time (yes, i use multiple knives on a daily basis), and in it I praised the carbonitride titanium coating. Now, after trying to stonewash this just a few weeks ago today, I have more appreciation. Normal coats (coats that aren't this) take me 3+/- hours to complete by hand with a bottle and river stones. About 5 hours or so barely did squat so I gave up. Glorified paint? Not in this case.

Ok,but too bulky for edc.
The "Beast" is a very large,and bulky folder.Because of it's size most will not carry this around.It's simply too bulky,and takes up 90% of pocket..As far as the steel,handles,and liner,i really dont have much of a problem.Sure,the liners could be thicker,but there ok.Unless you try one of the ignorant maneuver's on those videos you've seen,the liner is plenty strong enough..The thumhole is easy to manuever.The flipper action is slow,but that's because of blade weight.It works,but is nowhere near as smooth as a CRKT folder..I dont see how someone could cut their finger with this knife,because the flipper also serves as a finger guard,but when people try to immulate maneuvers done on those cheesy/dangerous/ignorant videos,anything's possible..The one thing people SHOULD pay attention to,BEFORE watching those videos,is the Disclaimer:Do NOT try this at home..Because if you do,or if you handle this knife in an unsafe manner,you will have a hospital bill,that will be a helluva lot more than this folder cost you..Be careful,and Do NOT use a knife for anything other than cutting and/or slicing..What are you trying to accomplish by stabbing a oil drum,or car hood??.A screwdriver will do the same thing,and costs $5...

Needs to be redesigned!
I have collected functional blades for years. The best thing about the knife is the blade and the material used to make it. Other than that, the handle is to bulky, and too straight edged. Overall it is a very heavy knife. The opening mechanism and the lock a very poor. I carry this knife in my truck as a back up in case I forget my EDC (Everday Carry) knife at home. This knife works well with cargo pants. To me this is a knife used for light work and/or an intimidation factor. It is a beast in terms of size, but until Camillus goes back to the drawing board and redesigns the handle, opening and locking mechanisms I would spend my money more wisely. Invest in a CRKT M16 series knife with Auto Lawks. I trust the M16 with my life and I use it as an EDC knife and tactical knife.
