Might have received a lemon, but the safety lost its detent after less than a week of normal use. Had to send it back. Knife was sharp otherwise and the auto mechanism felt great.
Great knife and great company!

This is a great knife for any knife collection. Its a CA legal auto which is really cool and the addition of the CA bear is so freaking cool. If you're from CA, (like me) its nice to see some pride in the state.

The knife came hair shaving sharp from the factory and the edge holds up great.

I ended up gifting this knife to my cousin for his 40th birthday. This was my favorite knife at the time and I wanted to give him something special as he lives out of state and I don't see him often. He is more like a big brother to me so i thought this would be a great gift for him to think of me when he used it.

Well, he loves the knife and he cannot stop raving about this knife.

He never used anything other than cheap knives and box cutters and was amazed by the premium material and quality of this knife. He reports that everybody that ever uses this little beast wants to steal it from him! Especially his wife!

He did report that the pocket clip screws did get loose and he lost one but Hogue customer service was very quick in issuing replacement screws despite the pandemic.

Great knife and great company! I totally recommend purchasing this knife.
AWFUL quality control? or a dud?

The hardware ALL came a little warped like whoever tightened it down was TRYING to strip all the screws, and yet I STILL had to tighten the pocket clip down, for a knife over 100 bucks, I could get better from almost anywhere... really disappointed in Hogue for this one, I couldnt even return the dang thing either, because It fell off a short coffee table, and chipped paint off!!! .. "U.S.A made" just does not mean the same thing anymore. I will not be purchasing from Hogue in the future. DO NOT recommend. *blade and sharpness are the only good thing
My wife absolutely loves this knife!

My wife works for Law Enforcement and wanted a concealable as well as a California legal auto knife in her favorite tiffany blue color.

Pros

- Handle: Robust, strong gripping, gimping is phenomenal, nice side lock, easy access plunge button, beautifully designed glass breaker integrated with the back frame, strong spring, easy to dismantle.

- Blade: 154CM, great gimping, great point styles such as drop.

Cons

- Handle: Not easy to clean from backside of handle, glass breaker is oddly small and the clip is poorly designed.

- Blade: Blade steel 154CM is an old standard, should offer the blade in more steels.

Conclusion - Absolutely perfect knife for a women with small hands. Color and blade style varieties make this a strong competitor in the women's market. Hogue did awesome with this little gal!
Great little auto!!!

Just got it and it's pretty nice, but the color is very different from the pictures. Mine is more of a teal color in person, which I actually prefer. Not sure if there's a variation in the color on some or it's just Blade HQ's lighting that makes the one in there pics and video look aqua, but mine is not aqua. Box says aquamarine too though so I really don't know.
