Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness
Can't be beat, for the money
As EDC, double edge came RAZOR sharp. As noted in other reviews, operation takes some practice to deploy but within a day or 2, its no problem at all. Lockup is realy very solid, once opened. No rattles, almost no blade-play, aluminum handle provides good grip, will probably add small piece grip tape on each side & will be perfect. Double edge blade has needle-like point! (buyer beware!) have not had a need to sharpen yet, since only had knife for a week, but lets face it....this knife/blade is mainly designed as an easier-to-carry version of a, "Get-the F@¢K OFF ME!" defensive blade, & as such, will not be called on to open boxes & such mundane tasks. (I have other, more suitable knives/blades for that-although this knife most definately feels strong enough for such purposes). only thing needed in my case was lubrication...at first some scraping etc on deployment. few drops of machine oil... & its like BUTTER! All in all outstanding value for price, i will be ordering several for Xmas gifts. Home-Run Shrade & Knifecenter!
