A collectable more than a usefultool
The knife arrived by Pony Express. The entire knife is one of top shelf quality for a manufactured knife. It is truly more of a last ditch defensive knife, however, it is perfect for my daughter starting out on a small knife collection. I was thoroughly impressed with the fit. finish, scales, blade sharpness, and unique collectible attributes. I would prefer a stronger locking mechanism, but I would suppose that for the price we got everything we could for the buck so that Spyderco could still make a reasonable profit. The scales, blade, and fit/finish are outstanding. Time will tell if the tattoo will hold up, or not. I see this knife as a collectible, and not as an EDC tool.
