Let me just start off by saying that the presentation of this knife is excellent. The box pouch and cloth wow. Let's start with the knife now all i could say is excellent hands down from fit and finish amazing the coloring the materials and the blade. I read it was supposed to come in a satin finish but it came in a stone wash even better blade perfectly centered comes out with a smooth transition when pushed.

I'm so impressed with everything and would recommend this knife to anyone I'm a usa knife buyer but hands down this is right there with the best of them. Now to bladehq, thank you for sending this knife to me as fast as I've ever seen a knife company do. Excellent service, I will be doing more business in the future that is a definite.Thanks again.
Quality materials, Sub par execution

Style
Very nice looking knife. Great looking grinds. Blade does not flow into the handle design but they look great together. A menacing flipper and big stubby thumb studs adds to the blades cool appearance.

Blade
Great even grinds. Came sharp enough but for my preference I stropped it. Great jimping on the spine. Very disappointing flipper that doubles as a finger guard. The jimping on the flipper scrapes the index finger when held firmly and scrapes skin off with any hard use.

Handle
The handle seems like the dehorning process was an after thought. There was an effort but the handle is not smooth. The pocket clip is terrible, overly large hump with a pointy tip. The tip sticks out and can catch or scratch whatever it comes in contact with.

Deployment/action
The action was very stiff on the blade I received. I worked the action 100's of times to just get the flipper broken in. To this day the thumb studs are utterly unreliable. The blade rides bronze washers not ball bearings.

Recommendation
I can't recommend this blade at this price point. A $70.00 price point would be more representative of the craftsmanship and execution of the design. Even then the vanguard series has much better offerings $70.00-100.00
