This is my first genuine Italian switchblade. This knife deploys really fast and lockup is tight with no blade movement in any direction when fully opened. The fit and finish between the back spacer and and the two brass bolsters on either side, however, could use some work. There are very noticeable gaps in between them. At the same time, I also understand that these knives are all handmade one by one in the old fashion, so I'm gonna be a little more forgiving on SKM for that. The blade comes dull, but then again, I bought this item for it's original purpose as a novelty / collector's item; not really as a user. So, I'm not gonna knock them on that either. Overall, it's still a pretty decent knife.
