Maxwell M.
Did not get mine from bhq, got it from a small shop. The one I have has really excellent fit and finish, I like the pocket patina the wood takes, it is super slim and an excellent food knife. I remarked that it was very dull at the shop, we checked the others and different models, it seemed to be a trend. 12c27 sharpens up easy (like 154cm).
Far from perfect
Han L.
This knife is beautiful from far away, but not so much up close.
The good: light weight and slim. Legal almost anywhere. Sleek design.
There are 3 major flaws that keep me from loving this knife:
1. The fit and finish is not on par with tradition folders. There are gaps between the frame and the lock bar. The wood is not coated or polished.
2. The blade shape is awful. Not only do you not have a useful belly, you don't even have a sharp tip.
3. The steel is soft. I'm not familiar with 12C27, but after 3 days of carry without heavy use, I already got scratches on the blade.
