I was on the fence on this one but am glad I took the plunge. Simply put, I couldn't stop smiling when I first had it in my hands. The workmanship is beyond reproach. The flipping mechanism is flawless. It was great out of the box and still gets better with every flip.
There's definitely something about the styling that I can't quite put my finger on. It seems to be a cross of several styles: gentleman's pocket knife, a somewhat futuristic flavor mixed with a bit of steam-punk and a just a hint of tactical without one design element dominating the other. Wholly original yet you can see the design cues.
All in all, a really great effort made of quality materials and workmanship. I guess you can tell I like it. :-)
