I've had this knife for about three years now and no complaints at all, the knife came sharp and is easy to sharpen. The spring tension is still good and the fit and finish is nice as well.
Couldn't be more pleased with this knife. The lock-up is perfect-no horizontal or vertical play whatsoever. G-10 scales are excellent. Sandvik 14C28N blade comes sharp. The assist works nicely-very easy to deploy. Mine even came with a nice drawstring cloth pouch. Made in the U.S.A.!!! Purchased on sale for $39.99. This is an awesome knife and from its construction I anticipate solid durability. I'll repost if otherwise.
So far it seems like a pretty good knife it came sharp. The spring assist seems to work good and the lock up, locks perfectly in the middle. The grip is great, its light weight and the pocket clip holds it tight in your pocket. The only thing i find wrong is a little tiny bit of side to side play with the blade other than that its a great folding spring assist knife.
