I bought this knife based off of it's looks and it did not disappoint. I liked the compound grinds on the blade, along with the G-10 scales. When I received it, I really liked the way it fit my hand. I wear a medium/large sized glove and the knife fit my had perfectly.

Well made solid knife

Axis assist flipper makes it a very smooth opening. Compound grind makes the shape of the blade unique and very cool. Itís not a cheap knife but it is well made. Added safety is a bonus. This is a knife that will last a long time.
Awesome knife

I'll admit I was initially thrown off by a high end assisted flipper knife but this thing fires hard and is built very well. I got over the assisted part pretty quick after feeling how great this knife feels in my hand. Itís a beautiful knife (probably the best looking BM I own) thatís built tough. Would for sure recommend!
