Beautifully made knife.
First, I'm not an expert with a butterfly knife. This is my first one. So I'm practicing. But the knife seems to be well made. The stag scales look nice and the blade is "reasonably" sharp. Maybe if I get more confident with my handling technique, I'll put a better edge on it.

Good knife!!!
Iv put this knife threw it all! And yet its held up vary well. The only thing I dislike about this butterfly knife is that the glue they use for the stag isn't the best and the T latch get stuck wile I'm flipping... But all an all GREAT knife

Awesome Knife
I am loving this knife. The movement is fluid and the blade is very sharp. The stag bone has an authentic feel to it. The latch is very secure, so accidental opening is rare. However, there are a few problems with it. First, the bone is glued, not pinned to the frame. One of the bone faces came right off when I dropped it. It was nothing epoxy couldn't fix, but was still inconvenient. Second, when flipping the knife closed, the latch tends to swing in front of the blade . As a result, the blade is dulled at a certain point and the latch is scarred.
