Laugh-out-loud bad out of the box, after about an hour of work I actually got a knife worth the $24.

Borrowing from my review of the Stadter 25, the same is all true of this 223:

"First clue [the knife was abominable] was when no matter how hard I hit the flipper tab, the blade would not deploy to even halfway open. Loosening the pivot enough to make it open leaves the blade centering as far off as physically possible.

Note also that there is no weight listed. This thing is freakishly and inexplicably heavy. I think the liners -- which even have weight-reducing cut-outs -- must be made from depleted uranium.

Oh, and you can't even slide a business card under the pocket clip and the blade grind is uneven and... you get the idea. The sole redeeming quality is the design, with great work on the G10 scales and a pretty good feel in hand."

Still, I liked the look of this knife well enough to invest the time in disassembly, filing, cleaning and resharpening to get a knife that was actually worth keeping. The centering still sucks, but it's a stylish looking beater knife that can double as an anchor if I ever buy a boat.

If you are in love with the design of this knife and want a project, go for it. Otherwise, pass on Marser and get your sub-$30 knives from Kershaw (or spend $40 on a really excellent Civivi).
