The knife appears to be very well made. The action is very smooth and the blade seems to hold an edge well. My problem is the size, it is very small. It is very lite weight which is good but it is small in stature. I am an older gentleman who has had multiple broken bones in my hand and arthritis is starting to set it. Do to the above issues I have difficulty holding a small handled knife and operating the opening mechanism. Granted the blade and handle length is the same as most of my other knives but the girth, weight and thickness is much less. When drawing it from my pocket I find that I will drop it or my fingers will get in the way of the blade opening. I told my wife who has hands 1/2 the size of mine she could have it.
