I have had this knife ever since it first came out. My dad gave it to me as a birthday gift and I have used it as my camping folder ever since. The steel on this knife has been used and yes...very very very abused...but has stood up to the test for years. I have put this knife through everything you could possible do. Cutting down trees, batoning, cutting wire, and I even nailed tent stakes into the ground with it before. After all those years of hard use, I finally was introduced into the wonderful world of Kershaws, Benchmades, and Spydercos. I don't normally take this knife camping anymore because I have upgraded to better knives, but I keep this knife in a memory box for safe keeping. Overall results: This knife flew by my expectations and graduated with flying colors. The blade is still hair popping sharp, the handle may have a few scratches and scrapes but is still strongly constructed. I give this knife an A+
