Bought this knife in Nov '20 to replace my Benchmade auto (the latter knife had seen three deployments, was my EDC as a police officer, and wad always in my pocket from day to day and needed to be retired after 14 years of hard use).
Pro: sleek design, ergonomic in the hand.
Con: finish began to peel off within a rear and rust formed on any metal that wasn't finished. The bushings between the blade and the handle wore out making it impossible to open with the thumb as intended.
It was because of the cons that I have now passed this knife to my daughter, after a cleaning a rebuild, and have replaced the knife with another brand.
My uncle got me the Rat 1 for me Birthday in may of 2019. I've been using it as part of my EDC rotation. It feels awesome in your hand the grip is just amazing and it came in very sharp. 5 star highly recommended. I recently ordered the rat one to give my uncle because he only had the rat 2. Which I also added a 2 in my order as well for me lol
