Fast Old Friend
I have used this knife for EDC for over ten years, and it has never let me down. It holds an edge, yet is easy to sharpen to razor sharp. I check it maybe once a week, and sharpen on a small Fallkniven ceramic stone (also sold at Knife Center), which I keep in my pocket. I used to use Arkansas wet stones almost exclusively, but find these ceramic stones much better (and no oil required). (Sorry, a digression. A plug for Fallkniven.) I carry the knife it in a flapped shirt pocket, right side, point down. I have the clip adjusted so that it will not fall out of my pocket, but is still easy to draw. I can get this knife out and open in a HURRY. Kinda like a "Whirlwind?" There are no problems with wear, breakage, keeping locked, etc. The blade is now a bit scratched in places, but that is just normal wear and tear. I have several other knives, 'cause I guess I'm a "knife nut," but I cannot force myself to use on of the others for everyday carry. This one works too well.In my view, based on ten years' of wearing this knife, one cannot go wrong with it. It's still made in the USA, so that's good.
