decent build, not terribly quick on the flip, nor is it drop shutty like some others - but it is a solid offering from CRKT. I've lubed it up with Gunny Glide & worked the blade several dozen times, it seems to have loosened slightly, but not by a lot.
The thumb studs are ill placed to be used for opening, and I'm thinking that their sole intention is to act as blade stops. Love the fit & finish, and the knife is a nice fit for my hand. Not the deepest of pocket clips, but not too much knife sticks out of my pocket, and the clip has good tension on it. No ready lanyard attachment, but I added a 425 paracord lanyard to the rear back spacer and I think it will do. A little aggravated that the price of this knife dropped $10 AFTER I bought it, but it is what it is...
