Love this knife but...
Matt C.
Let me start off by saying that on the whole, this is a fantastic knife. Feels great in the hand and pocket. Looks awesome, has nice steel, and open and closes like a dream. BUT I do have a few issues. First, out of the box it was not as sharp as I would like it to have been which was an easy fix. But my biggest issue is the pocket clip. I am not sure if this is the case for all stedemon clips, but my clip move back and forth a bit. I think this is due to the fact that it is held on with only a single screw. I also am not really a fan of the clip being made from G-10. So having said that, I would say that this is a solid knife with a poor pocket clip and in need of some sharpening, in my opinion.

Side note, the finish on my blade looked a bit scratched. But for me that is not really an issue. I just carry this knife cause it looks cool and feels great, minus the pocket clip issue.
