Nice knife for that "classic" switchblade feel

I bought this knife pretty much because it seems to me to represent the classic switchblade that you see in movies and on tv. It is definitely not an EDC knife, the cutting edge is barely sharp. If you are familiar with stilettos they are designed as a stabbing instrument, not cutting, so some don't even come with a sharp edge at all.

The fit and finish were ok, everything is functional, but the scales don't line up with each other, nor do the bolsters. I guess I would expect better with a knife being produced in a western country, but this is my first stiletto, maybe they all come like that. The price seems a little steep for what you get, I feel like this is a knife in the $50 range rather then $70.
Ultimately I have only a few minor complaints, but nothing that I think is a deal breaker.

One thing, instead of using the deployment button to retract the blade like on a modern switchblade, the bolster actually pivots to retract the blade. This is standard for stilettos, but it took me a while to figure out, so just thought I would mention it to save you the confusion.
