Excellent design - decent construction by CRKT (considering the price)
The Pilar is very popular for a reason: it is a great design and for the ~$25 street price, it is quite the bargain. The ergonomics are great and it came quite sharp out of the box. There were a few gripes though: first, it came very gritty and second, the blade was not centered. It was so gritty, it was a pain to open and impossible to flip, the blade would not move much by itself. I tried to disassemble the knife (after watching nick Shabazz tutorial) but the screws were not cooperating and the Loctite on the pivot so strong that I gave up by fear of stripping the screw. I was surprised that the screws holding the clip had some thread locker too even though it is designed to be a resersible clip. The thread locker left some goop on the original clip hole. I oiled the knife and it helped a little bit, it can now be flipped with quite the wrist action though.
