Medford knives are not everyone's cup of tea. Having said that, I'm sorry to have spent my money on anything else. Medford build serious tools, and does not compromise on size or weight. The pocket clip is tight, but he states, correctly, that this is better than losing a $550 knife. Normally, when I get a new knife, the first order of business is to sharpen and hone. Not these, all three came shaving sharp..
