My husband loves it, couldn't have chosen a better anniversary gift!
This knife has a great look and performs well. Super sharp out of the box, blade was centered, action is nice and snappy. No spring assist, but the detent is just right so it launches open without much fuss. The shredded carbon scales are really neat. It's hard to see in the photo but the gold and carbon shreds are sealed under a clear resin, so the grip is kind of plasticky, there's no exposed carbon or G10 or anything. Kind of a small shadow-box style of appearance with those shreds under the clear resin/plastic, etc. It's still grippy, but probably not as much with wet hands, etc, there's no texture. BUT it's stunning, slices nicely, flips open snappily, happy with the buy.
This is an update after two months of ownership. I do love the knife, but I have come to realize the blade I got was warped. After spending about an hour trying to center my blade, I took a good long look and realized the blade was warped to the left. I do not want to send it back as it's already been used as an everyday carry for a full month and I find it gives it personality, making it truly one of one (I hope). I bought this for 3 reasons. It comes with a Nitro-V blade steel which I've been wanting to get my hands on for a while. It has my two favorite colors, black and gold. And third, I wanted to swap the blade with a Damascus blade to make it a show knife and it looks beautiful. I'm very sad it's been discontinued.
