Very Good Knife
I'm a everyday all day EDC guy, letters, boxes twine paracord, etc. This knife was sharp out of the box, properly adjusted and blade centered, very smooth operation. I found the carbon fiber really nice, edges rounded with a very good 3D appearance. It is smooth but not necessarily slippery. I'm not an in the muck kinda guy with a knife so I can't comment on wet muddy use. For me I like how it feels. For the money, awesome knife.

This blade gets the job done.
I use this knife everyday from cutting paracord to cutting my lunch. The D2 steel can cut through anything, I think. It's not showing any nicking or dulling from everyday use. The jimping on the top of the blade provides excellent control of the blace. I like the length of the blade too. Since I am not a large person, I try to keep the maximum length to within 3 inches. Because of that, it fits very good in my hands. The ergonomic handle design cradles my forefinger well without compromising the placement of the liner lock. It is neither too recessed, nor pronounced, and opening and closing the blade is very smooth and efficient. The CF handles are a little too smooth though. I'm not saying that the knife may accidentally slip between your fingers during use, but maybe choosing the G10 scales will provide extra security for others. But having CF handles makes it easy to clip it in my trouser pockets without fear of the cloth being frayed in time by rough scales. Overall, I am pleased with this purchase. It gives the most bang for my buck.

Bad Carbon Fiber
This is the best knife, for the money, out there. The problem is the cheap “sticker” of carbon fiber they put on the handle. It is so slippery I had to put gun handle tape on it! It doesn’t ruin this excellent knife, especially in its D2 counterpart, but it does take away. Get the other handle material.
