I probably wouldn't recommend it, as there are better knives at this price range. It does have a fierce look. Overall, I keep thinking this would be a much better fixed blade than flipper. It's a struggle every time to get out of my pocket. I think the clip is too tight and the handle is really small. The flip action is underwhelming. So from a tactical perspective, my primary use case, it's a fail. Finally, the liner lock is poor, locks in at 20% in on the blade and 50% of the liner bar itself.
The wait was agony!!

I've never been so excited waiting for a pre-order!!! Ok so I've wanted a
SSF since first day I saw one, just didnt $200-300 want it so when I heard back in February that Jason was doing a import line (still in D2) I said have to get it. The glorious blade HQ put it up for pre-order in April, hit the button that day then waited!!! Received it 4 days ago, now to the blade mine has perfect centering, lock up stiff as can be, took few (50ish) flips to break it in now once I get passed the strong detent the blade drops pretty good due to the bearings. I'm over all impressed with Jason's budget effort. Only two small nit picks mine has small blemish on the blade (maybe machine mark) and where the grind meets the hole is pretty sharp corner not rounded like the hole is closer to handle I actually scratch my thumb closing it (nothing little sand paper won't fix) but still would've been nice to round the whole hole lol
65 bucks understandable

so my only real complaint bout the knife would be the pocket clip it doesn't have that much memory in it so it will stay in one position had to snap mine back in with a vise other then that it's a ok knife though I enjoy carrying it
Not so sure...

I'd been coveting a Silent Soldier for a long time. It was the price tag that kept me from getting one of the carbon fiber or g10 scaled ones. So when this import came out I thought, this is my chance and I jumped on it. Now that I have it though, the polymer handle makes it a bit hard to get really excited about owning it. It's a kick ass blade don't get me wrong but the polymer gives it a really utilitarian feel. Something other than polymer would give it a little extra cool factor.
OK...but minor QC concerns

Ive been looking forward to getting this knife to EDC along with my V1. Good lines...nice aesthetics...BUT...mine came with slight up and down play, plus what looks like small scuff marks in the middle of one side of the blade. I understand it's a Chinese knife that costs less than $75, so I shouldn't expect perfection...just a little disappointed I guess.
Definitely a fan.

Can't say anything wrong about this knife except that it's made in China, which I know, is why it's an "Import", but personally, i feel like Mr. Brous' following would rather pay the extra $30 ish for this same knife to be made in the ol' US of A. At least I would. Either way great knife, badass design, and pretty good value! Great cardboard killer here. A fan.
An affordable version of an innovative original

I like that Jason Brous decided to make an Import version of one of his most popular knives and also at a price within everyone's budget. It's about a quarter of the price of the original. It is stout and sturdy. The flipper tab seems to be a little shorter that the original. I think this was a good change based on what I had noticed on You-Tube. It snaps open with authority once you open it a few times. The design is growing on me and my index finger is naturally going into the finger hole. It feels like a utility knife, which is what it will be for me. I will roll it into my EDC rotation. Closing it without irritating my thumb has taken me a little while to figure out. The blade hangs up on the detente ball, so it takes 2 steps to close it. Brous knives have a history of selling out so get one while you can.
