looks can be deceiving
Within a couple of weeks normal use (splitting kindling, prying, opening cans, pruning, and yes, cutting bread) I found the weak spot on this knife.There is a nylon bushing between the blade and its axle. With the kind of use above, the bushing deforms and the blade becomes laterally sloppy. So much so that if you press the blade sideways with a folding force at the point, the locking mechanism fails and the blade closes. I didn't cut myself yet but I like a lock that is 100%, not 90%.

Pretty Good Duty Knife
I enjoy the weight of it and ended up making it my work carry knife. My only issue with it was that it came in pretty dull.

Very good knife
It's a very good knife, sturdy, haves it's weight so you gonna feel it if you loose it... thanks to the nickel colour or finnish it's easy to see on tall grass; it's very sharp booth the knife's cutting edge as the razor to cut seat belts and things like that, opens very easy and fast and have a very good feeling on the hand. It's perfect for have on the car in case of emergency, if you need something strong and sharp that's easy to use and open... this is your knife; it's great. Even as camping knife works wonders, im very happy with it; it's a very good outdoors and emergency knife as urban knife, it's very very good.
