I've now owned this little knife for 2+ years and it's been a great knife that punches well above it's price point! Just buy it!
This is one of my favorite knives. The action is like a push-button - press gently on the flipper (you kind of have to get the hang of it) and this knife flies open with some authority. Very lightweight - some may say it feels cheap, but to me it's perfect, and the carbon fiber inlay just makes it better. My favorite knife to fidget with.
My experience with this knife has been really good. I was surprised by the negative reviews. Mine had good action, solid lock up and disengagement, and good QC. Maybe I got lucky. I actually liked mine so much that I have bought several and given them to friends over the past few months. Everyone that I have given away, is still being carried by my acquaintances. To me, this is a great, little, easy to care for, inexpensive flipper knife. I do not rule out that others maybe received "lemon" knives.
Detent is so stiff that if you open repeatedly you will kill your finger, and this is after carrying for 2+ weeks. right out of the box it was even worse. Blade shape is nice, but the knife over all feels super cheap and not very desirable. doesn't sit well in hand, to many jagged corners and feels like it will break f you use it for anything other than opening an envelope. There are many many better options in this price range. After getting this i am kind of sad i spent the money as it has been a complete disappointment
