I've had this knife for about a month now and I love it. S35VN steel and titanium on both sides in a $90 makes this a real hard one to pass on. The action is outstanding with a medium detent, maybe 6.5/10. You can deploy the blade partially if you try, especially if you light switch it, but push button opening it is crisp and smooth every time. There is also no steel lock bar insert, but I haven't had any lock stick and the lockup is very solid. Yes, it's a Chinese knife, but the fit and finish is impressive.
At the current price, how can you pass on this?

I really like the design on this one. The inlays are classy yet subtle. Weighs in at 5 oz. which is good considering the size and blade thickness. Since the perfect knife doesn't exist yet, I have a few minor gripes:

1. Clip is not deep carry.

2. No lock bar insert to combat against lock stick (as of right now, no lock stick).

3. Haven't had to sharpen it yet, so hopefully recurve won't make it difficult.

So, if none of those issues are deal breakers, then go for it. I found out about this knife on the knife beater's youtube channel.
Weak detent but good knife

Let me start by saying I really like this knife. The ergos are fantastic. It looks great. That being said there are a few dings I'll give it. The major being the detent. It's weak. With the weight of the blade and weak detent you don't always get a full deploy from the flipper. It's strong enough I can't shake out the blade when closed unless I REALLY try hard. The other thing is the the lockbar cut has some pretty sharp edges. I knocked them down with some carbide emery, but a small detail they missed. I got mine on sale (thanks BHQ) , so it's a real value. I would have been a disappointed at full price. Just keeping it real.
