I would have given this knife a 5 star review, however out of the box there is a clear buffing mark going the length of the blade from sharpening at the factory... you can see it in the picture too. Unfortunately I did not notice this when I bought it... oh well. Other than that WOW! this knife is SMOOOOTH! it falls closed, with perfectly tight lock up out of the box... I can't imagine what i will be like after It breaks in. Very easy to take apart, and maintain, should last a long time. If you have never owned anything in this price range, the comfort and smoothness will really impress ya.
