    I did some work on mine, sanding the handle moving up about 1/4 inch so far, I'd like to move it up at least another 1/4 inch for a better friction fit, I still need to strip the head, get it to bear metal, and cold blue it.

    Let's just say that I got it at the beginning of June at Blade Show and I have literally carried it every day since. It's the nicest folder I've ever personally handled. I love the button lock flipper action. It makes one handed operation so easy.

    This is the best folding knife I've ever handled. It has been in my pocket daily since I bought it at the show- except for the days when I'm in a place that is very unfriendly about knives... then I carry my old Kershaw- they can tell me to toss that in the trash.

    And the cerakote finish is actually durable as hell.

    I could do without the scalloping on the blade. It really doesn't negatively affect function at all, just a little odd looking to me. A plain flat grind would have been more my speed.

    But... that aside, I don't have any real complaints. It's very lightweight for it's size. The opening/closing are the slickest I've ever felt on a knife. And if you want, they have different scale inserts for sale... I'm good with the plain old gray carbon fiber (which is actually carbon fiber I think- not just a printed design).
