Great craftsmanship, quality, edge, and fluid movement. As it is damascus, the blade comes oiled. That is definitely not a negative in my book! To me that shows great care in delivering an exceptional product. The hinges out of the box are quite slow but give a good full day of flipping and they become as fast as they are smooth. The bone grips feel amazing and give the needed grip for flipping a knife on the smaller side (4"). This has quickly become my overall favorite low-mid range knife.

Pros: Great Dama Patterning, Oiled for shipping, Zen pin construction, Extremely positive locking both folded and unfolded, Great grip, Durable bolsters, Light, Smooth blade hinges, Soft complimentary drawstring carrying pouch.

Cons: Slow hinges out of the box, oil from blade gets stuck in hinges, no included documentation, comes in pouch but is free floating in box.
Great Knife for the Price

Bought as a gift for my son. Good looking knife. Sharp blade. Slow movement at first, but after a few days the hinges and speed improved significantly. Overall, my boy is thrilled with the knife.
Cool but Messy

Knife looks really cool, but the blade came covered in oil. Had to wipe it down pretty well so I wouldn't get my hands extremely dirty from touching it. Still kinda messy, but hopefully all the oil will be gone eventually.
No brainer

There isn't much I can say that isn't summed up in the product itself. Stag. Damascus. Made in the USA. 90 bucks. It's quality. It's beautiful. Comes razor sharp. Some reviews point out its a little tight, that is true but it flips just fine and like anything else you just adjust your technique to the instrument you are using. Some reviews say it's heavy; it's not. It flips just fine and weight wise doesn't feel much different than my 42 (the 42 flips smoother though). The pictures are nice but they do the true beauty of this knife no justice, it's sick in person. I have my latch rubber banded so it doesn't hit the blade when flipping and mar up that razor sharp beautiful Damascus. Buy this knife, you just can't beat it.
