    Great knife and holds an edge! Had this knife for several months now, and has been my EDC ever since. Mine is a First Production model. Overall, I love this blade. It carries well in my front right pocket. Only a couple minor issues that keep it from 5 star in my opinion. The locking mechanism is great, but can be a little bit of a PIA until you get used to working it. One handed closing takes a little getting used to. Not the easiest one in my collection. The second would be the rubberized grip. This is a good and bad thing. Feels great in the hand, but makes in and out of the pocket not quite as smooth as I like, and it is starting to wear off at the lanyard hole near the pocket clip. Obviously this will continue, and soon the whole scale will be worn. Another choice in handle material on this exact knife would be an awesome addition. Hopefully someone will start making aftermarket scales for it like you can find for the griptillian. Last would be that it is a tad heavy. Great in jeans and cargo shorts, but wear anything lighter, and I go to my collection for another carry. Bottom line is that I still love this knife, and proud to own it. Worth every penny I paid.
