Product Review (submitted on January 19, 2016):
I've owned and carried this model for about ten years now. It held up great to anything I could dish out. Just recently sent it back to Benchmade because I had sharpened it so much over the years that the blade didn't really look like it did when it was new. Benchmade replaced the blade, upgraded now to S30 steel, and custom laser marked it for less than the cost of a Chinese knife from Walmart! They also tuned up the rest of the knife like brand new. It carries so well in my pocket that I forget it is there. I can't say enough good things about this knife. I own 12 other Benchmade knives, but this model is my favorite.
