Soooo close!

This is soooo close to a perfect EDC but it falls short. The handle design and clip are great, the size and weight are perfect, and I like the general purpose blade shape. Where it fell short for me is the lock effort and blade steel. Iím a Cold Steel fan and own many Tri-Ad locks. This one is way too stiff and not better enough even after lots of opens and closes. I think the lock release position is not ideal (compare it to a Finn Wolf). I own a few other 4116 budget blades from Cold Steel and itís just fine for what it is but donít expect a super steel performance. Maybe the heat treat on mine is off (it was an early production one) but it doesnít take an edge like my other 4116 blades. For what you are getting I think this knife should be more like $20-$25, not $35. And even at $25, thatís the price of a RAT folder and it uses better materials and is better constructed. If C.S. tweaks the lock geometry adds bronze bushings, and upgrades to at least AUS 8A, this knif would be a 5 star. Just like the Finn Wolf has.
