I fell in love with this knife as soon as I saw it. It feels great, looks great, performs great, perfect centering, nice materials, etc.

The only issue I had was uneven/rough grinding on the edge. I was definitely disappointed - but there are knives that have been around for years that cost twice as much with the same issue. A little love on a sharpening system fixed it right up! I've heard from a couple people that most QC issues like this have seemed to be fixed since the knife has been out for a couple months now.

Perfect lightweight EDC knife (especially if you're like me and dislike the flexible bugout handles or need more real-estate than a mini-grip etc)

It might be worth looking at the Blur or Dividend but neither of those are manual flippers.

If you like how it looks, i'd recommend getting one. The performance will not disappoint and Gerber (so i've heard) has been doing well with customer support (not to mention BladeHQ :D ) if there ever is an issue.

Thanks!
Nice!!

Great steel, comfortable in the hand, nice design. I like the warncliff blade shape, it makes a nice acute point helping to pierce whatever your cutting.

Make sure to read reviews on the different color options if you are using reviews to help make a decision.

Recently purchased this after seeing it last month online. For a hundred bucks why not give it a try? It has S30V and is made by a popular brand. Well the opening and the closing stick way more than I like. And it honestly looks way too much like a Kershaw leek or a Dividend. This knife is honestly not worth a hundred bucks. Ya it has good steel but it's not a great knife. But I will say it came really sharp. Nothing special here sadly
