I was not expecting this to be my favorite knife from PKW, but I am VERY happy with this knife. I am a BIG fan of the slight curve of the blade (it is like a micro-katana) The slider to deploy and retract the blade is SILENT and does not wiggle (which was my only issue with the Titan brand OTF. I am a little upset that it doesn't have a glass breaker like on the Titan, but of the two brands this is actually my favorite. I did also have one failed deployment, but it was my fault (preworkout got on the blade and gunked up the mechanism) I opened it, cleaned it out, and it has been working fine ever since. Lastly, I didn't think I would like the texture on the handle, it's like a pressed imprint, but it feels very nice to the touch.
