being a long user of CRKT knives, i was hesitant to buy this knife because of the large price difference between manufacturers.
i'm very happy i bought this because it has very quickly become my favorite knife.
scalpel sharp blade that hasn't lost it's edge in 6 months. amazingly smooth action with a crisp lock that will have you flicking it in your spare time. simple and very effective locking mechanism that lets you lock it open or closed. great feel and balance. it has abit of a heft to it but feels like it'd last a life time. very fast and easy one handed operation.
i guess the only complaints i'd have about this blade is price and weight.
but as with most things in life, you get what you pay for and a good knife is worth it's weight in gold.
