It has gotten to the point now where the knife aficionados are looking only toward higher end brands like Spyderdo, Emerson, etc. They are not doing themselves any favors be eliminating the lower priced makers like Buck, Kershaw and Gerber, as they are starting to make knives in the USA again and out of excellent materials.

I bought the "Alaska Guide" version of this knife, with the DLC coating, rosewood handle inserts and S30V, and it is just superb. I just did a YouTube review on it; user Jeremy D.

In short though, it is a great pocket clip carry knife. The clip is deep carry, and it screws to the end of the knife so there aren't unsightly screw holes all over the side of the knife. The width of the knife isn't too much, so it doesn't hog width in your pocket. It fills the hands a lot more than something like a Delica, but without feeling thick in the pocket.

The frame lock is better suited to righties, but lefties can probably handle it too. The action is not loose. It either requires a firm flick of the flipper or a light flick and a small bit of wrist action. You won't find it lacking, in practice. Although I'm already flush with 3 to 3-1/4" folders, I find myself wanting to go back for the Large one as well...
Good Little EDC

Wanted a cheap entry point to S30V steel, and this knife hasn't disappointed so far. Deep carry pocket clip fits nicely in the pocket (after I flexed it a little to loosen it up). Not the fasted flipper, but once you break it in, it opens decently.
Essential and Functional EDC

Bought this knife for my father since he usually carries small Bucks, and his previous one was sharpened so much the blade was about half the size.

This knife is the perfect size to carry everyday with its deep pocket clip. The s30v blade is of great quality and locks up tight and holds it's edge very well.

The flipping action doesn't perform as smooth as I would've liked and takes a little assistance from the wrist.

Overall, a well-priced EDC folder from Buck.
A nice knife...

So this is a quality knife. It leaves a little to be desired as a "flipper", though. The flipping action is not smooth and required a little getting used to and a pretty decent amount of wrist flick. That aside, it comes with great steel, but I didn't find mine to be razor sharp from the factory. The pocket clip is great and allows comfortable carry. By no means is this a bad knife. It's a Buck and is USA made, so in the long run it'll hold up.
