I have only owned this knife for about a month now but man am I happy with it. This is my first Benchmade knife but it definately won't be my last. I was a little skeptical about spending $200 on a knife but it is definately one of those things that you get what you pay for. It is extremely smooth operating and rugged. I love the blade shape and the way it fits in my hand and my pocket. The knife wasn't extremely sharp when it arrived but after a few times on a stone, it'll shave hairs. I would recommend this knife to anyone looking for a great quality all around pocket knife.

Great Knife, great design. FIts in a my pocket well, and opens very easily.
Only thing my not satisfied with is the fact that I paid $17 dollars for shipping for something that should have cast $5 dollars to ship

Rated 5 out of 5 by ElZorro Great knife!
First the pros. Very well made, no play in the blade. Very smooth opening and with practice it opens with a wrist flick.
Superior edge holding and fairly easy to sharpen considering the hard steel. It came razor sharp out of the box. Grind lines were perfect.
This my new EDC knife. Very light and flat, It'a very unobtrusive in my pocket compared with my other pocket knives.
The only cons are minor. I had to loosen the clip so it would slide smoothly. I also prefer to carry tip up and there are no provisions for this.
