Love the ergonomics and the blade. Hate the scales. Overall a great knife for the money!
I have owned many different blades. Including both the d2 and aus8. I was excited to get the d2 version and like Max initially was disappointed.
I then decided to see if the blade was salvageable
Using a marker and a dual grit Dimond hone I was able to get the knife I had dreamed of
I believe the price point and hardness of the metal conspired to lessen the finish factory edge and require a bit more effort
For the money, this is the best bang for your buck folder on the market today.
The D2 steel holds a good edge. The factory edge is plenty sharp.
D2 doesn't rust as quickly as many people on the internet says it will. It is a semi stainless steel.
Awesome knife for the money. The action is not as smooth but for the money, it's hard to beat. You can loosen the pivot and that'll help a little bit. Comes with a good factory edge. D2 is awesome. I wash mine under water all the time. As long as you wipe it off, it won't rust. D2 is a semi stainless steel. It won't rust as easily as some people believe.
I have two and plan on getting more for gifts and such. Awesome starter/beater knife!!
