Been using this knife for probably about a year now, and it is the sturdiest folder I own, thanks to CS' Triad Lock. This lock can be abused greatly before it fails, so it'll get you through whatever you will realistically need. The ruggedness makes it a good folder if you need something to hammer on while camping or something, but other than that, its for sure a tactical blade.

Only marks off would be primarily the finish of the blade. The more gloss or powder black shows a lot of marks on the blade and when I batoned with it, it was a bit sticky to the wood.

One other problem was a small rattle inside the pivot area when you shake the blade left to right, while it is deployed. The rattle was cause by a small chrome pin that had a little too much room in between both sides of the G10 handles (which are amazing, as per CS' usual). Its a super easy fix though, just YouTube it and you'll be done in sub-10 minutes.
