Product Review (submitted on March 16, 2016):

This knife is almost perfect. I have the standard version with the M390 steel. M390 is a super premium steel and after cutting open tons of boxes, the edge is just as sharp as the day I got it. It is expensive, but the steel you get is worth it. This knife is small enough to carry every day, but big enough to be tacti-cool if you need it to be, thanks to the amazing gimping and finger grooves.(perfect gimping) The finger grooves are very nice, although they are made for someone with medium to small hands. The only flaw with this knife is the thumb stud. It is big and easy to open which is great from a tactical standpoint, but it is actually too big and too easy too open. The thumb stud can get caught on the fabric of your pocket.Several times when deploying it from my pocket it opened on its own. This could lead to an accident. The solution? Wear it on your hip. I prefer carrying on my hip anyway so it's no problem for me, but if you plan on pocket carry only, you may want to consider a different bench made.
