This is a fantastic knife. I've been collecting knives for over 30 years. We're in a short of folding knife renaissance. Even still, this is a shining example of everything good in a folding knife. Great materials, steel second to none, solid construction, and great fit and finish. A lot of knives with "super steels" lack proper heat treatment. If you have a super steel at hrc 58-60 you're missing the benefits of the steel. This blade is definitely treated correctly. Looking forward to many years of carry.
