Revised Review
I finally got this knife sharp, and would like to upgrade my rating from 4 stars to 5. This knife is a bear to sharpen, but I finally succeeded. Now, I have absolutely no reason not to love it.

Pros: Handle Material, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
This is a beautiful knife that feels great in the hand. I absolutely love the look and feel of the handle material! The blades open easily and smoothly, and snap into place nicely. Unfortunately, the D2 tool steel blade - which probably holds an edge forever once it has one, is nearly impossible to sharpen. The blade was sharp, but not razor sharp, out of the box. I thought I'd dress it up. I'd just finished putting serious shaving-sharp edges on my Boker Canoe, my Camillus Boy Scout knife, three kitchen knives, and two Victorinox Swiss Army knives with the Spyderco Tri-angle sharpener, and I was feeling confident. It didn't work on the Queen. I tried again, this time applying a back-bevel first. Nope. I ran it through my Boker Magnum diamond wheel sharpener, which usually puts a good (although not wicked-sharp) edge on anything. Still not there. Finally, I pulled out my GATCO Edgemate system, which takes more work but hardly ever fails me. With the GATCO, I was finally able to get the Queen hair-shaving sharp, but it still wasn't as sharp as my other knives - even after an extra ten minutes on the extra-fine ceramic stone. I'll try again later, and eventually will probably succeed, but I can tell it won't be easy. My guess is that this tool steel is just so seriously hard that it will take much, much more elbow grease than I had on hand today. So, yes, I love this Queen Canoe knife and want to give it five stars, but I won't be carrying it until I finally give it the edge I want, which looks like it's going to take a while.
