Recent purchase/Christmas gift for my husband 2015. First let me say that KnifeArt's customer service is excellent - my orders always arrive incredibly fast and in excellent condition. He had been wanting this knife for over a year, so I ordered it for Christmas 2015. Blade is very sharp, build construction is excellent quality, very nice finish on blade and titanium handles. This knife is very much the quality one would expect from Benchmade products (made in USA line). This will be a andquot;gentleman'sandquot; everyday carry knife for him; this knife won't see a lot of hard use or abuse, but he is extremely satisfied.
