I purchased this knife from the Bargain Bin section of BladeHQ because like Ben, I too am a cheap sucker. The knife arrived basically brand new and I couldn't be happier with BladeHQ's shipping to an APO. A+ I'll lead with my only two complaints which are both super minor. One - the pocket clip is tight. Really tight. Like tighter than any knife I've ever owned. I don't mind it overall - just wish the clip had more give. Two - when the blade is deployed (and only then), if shaken side to side, there is a faint rattling sound as though the plunge lock when deployed makes a washer loose or something like that. There is no play in the lockup and no issues with the blade centering, so I've tended to just ignore this. Now the good part - this knife is awesome. For me, it is the absolute perfect EDC size. In the 3-3.5" blade range, and a handle that is just big enough to fill the hand. It's the first S35VN blade I've owned and it cuts. And cuts. And then for good measure cuts some more. Fantastic edge retention. It feels remarkably light in hand which for me helps reduce fatigue during extended use. I was skeptical about the two distinct sets of gimping on the spine, but have found that for most tasks my thumb is drawn to the larger gimping near the handle, and for precision tasks I gravitate towards the finer, forward gimping. Consider me sold. The push button deployment is very light, but does not actuate inadvertently (at least I couldn't get it to). And as far as deployment is concerned, lightning quick comes to mind. What a great entry into the auto market for a company known for their Balis. Excellent knife!
