This is my first OTF knife. After scouring several places for information on OTFs, I carefully selected this one as a good balance of all factors considered associated with this style. The action has been dead reliable and blade came plenty sharp. I haven’t abused it, but have cycled it a fair amount with no failures. The fit and finish are good (not great) for this price point but the reason for the non-5 star review is the OTF experience. The force needed to actuate the blade is spot on, but I feel like there could be more done to provide a quality feel when end of full in or full out is reached. It knife is good for the price and is well worth the money. Just know you don’t get a high end feel.
