Try it...like it.
These are hard to beat for the money. Incredibly sharp out of the box, lock up is super tight with no wiggle in any direction. D2 blade seems to hold edge really well and after about a month of daily use on cardboard ,paper ,plastic and a little wood whittling here and there I run it over the strop a couple of times about once a week and keep the edge sharp as new. Haven't had to use any sort of sharpener yet other than maintaining with the strop.. C.F. handle scales are nice but bought same knife in the OD Green as a gift for a friend and think I might actually like it more. Only complaints are pocket clip is a little too tight for some pockets and not deep carry. Also knife is not marked Ontario anywhere and it is made is Taiwan :( Anyway, still great knife and highly recommend it for the price. Knife Center was great and I received my order super fast. Thank you!
