What I Expected
I gave it a 5 because honestly, there isn't much of anything wrong with it in my eyes. With that said, I don't have experience with 100's of knives and I am sure there are much more refined and comfortable knives. The spring-ball detent holding it closed is somewhat strong, others I have let look at it had a hard time opening it. It IS somewhat hard to open from a relaxed hand grip. You have to sort of deliberately position your hand properly to more easily flip the blade out, but I think that in itself helps with control and proper hand posture. It forces you to get good. Overall the blade is exactly as expected in terms of design, size, appearance. The metal frame is cold which I am not used to as I have always had a blade with some type of composite handle. Anyway, for the price it's perfect for me.
