I work on a ranch, carry this knife, and abuse it. I've had it for probably 5 years, never broken it, never had any problems. It holds its edge really well, the combination blade makes it great all around. The multi-tool function has come in handy, but I don't use it too often. Locking mechanism is very sturdy, it locks open or closed. The lock is also in a very convenient location for right handed thumb use. If you loosen the screw at the top you can flick it out after you've broken it in a bit (very handy). If you want to practice safe knife handling, it does have thumb studs on either side of the blade for one-hand opening. Feels good in the hand, thick, easy to grip, and has a good weight to it. Pocket clip works well, has never bent on me. Not a huge fan of the plastic handle, but it provides a good grip and has not broken. All around a great tool for the new or experienced knife owner. There's no beating the quality for the price.
