I can't really think of anything I haven't used this knife for. I've had it for about 2 1/2 yrs. The high points: Blade came extremely sharp, and the retention is excellent. Only had to sharpen twice that entire time. The build is incredibly solid between blade and handle. No play at all. However, after strenuous service, the pivot screw will loosen, easy fix though..not enough to be worrisome.
What I didn't like:
Action was a bit slow. Though the skeletonized frame is neat looking, it makes for a serious lint trap. Maybe it's good if you don't like lint in your pockets..lol. However when it comes to newly greased and lubed parts it just constantly gathers around moving parts. Easy clean with a qtip though. I can say that it even functioned well covered in wet sand... Which is good on my count. Lastly, I really didn't care for the safety at all. It loosens over time and will interupt opening. So I went against the designers and removed the tiny screw and detent. Worked like a charm afterwards.

This knife is sharp as hell. The biggest issue is the activation of the blade. The button seems uneven/prone to sticking. Upon opening it is unevenly weighted. Once opened it is solid sharp and great looking. The safety is a bit small and so is the pocket clip considering the size of the knife overall.
