If you are a knife enthusiast/ collector you can skip this knife completely. If you're new to knives and you like the looks and don't mind the price, it may work for you. The good things about the knife is that it looks relatively attractive with the blue color, has a good amount of belly on the blade to slice and dice, but unfortunately there are more cons than pros. Price: The price is a bit excessive for what you get. For the same amount of money or less ($35) you can obtain a much higher quality knife with higher quality steel, locking mechanism, and overall fit and finish. Example brands would be Kershhaw, CRKT, SOG, and Spyderco. Blade Steel: 420 is a pretty soft steel and wouldn't hold it's edge for very long with regular usage. Locking mechanism: The locking liner seems a little on the slim side and may affect durability in the long run (liner keeps the blade engaged for usage) Usually it's a luxury to have a safety on a knife, but in this case it is a necessity. This blade is so sensitive to deployment that without a safety I would be concerned that it would deploy at unwanted times from banging into things or if it is accidentally dropped. Fit & Finish: The construction seems crude and unrefined especially compared to the brands listed at the beginning of the review. Overall: Seems like a dated design using dated materials without any refinement for the asking price especially for something made in the USA.
