I heard so much about this knife that I was excited to order it. The first thing that struck me is that it is stunning. It's a work of art and certainly pleasing to the eye. It is smaller than I had envisioned and handle is short enough that I can just barely wrap my fingers around it. If you have larger hands, this wouldn't be comfortable to use. It also has a few edges that could use some chamfering like when you disengage the frame lock to close the knife, your thumb will notice the sharp corner of the frame. The knife is attractive, but for the price point I would have expected more refinement. A lot of ZT knives are $100 less expensive and have better ergonomics. If you want a knife to look at, get this. If you want to comfortably cut stuff on a regular basis, this wouldn't be my choice.
