The knife is beautiful and well made in the tradition of Benchmade. However, when I hold it in my hand it doesn't feel like a $425 knife. It's very reminiscent of the BM 943. Also, a stonewash finish on CPM-20CV is a waste. The material has such a luster with even a light polishing or fine grind. With that said, it's still a great knife, but I'd wait until you can get a better deal before buying it.
