I've not seen one yet but I rarely have high hopes for knives sold by folks that don't make knives.

Knives like S&W, Colt, H&K...... Maxpedition.

When a new knife appears "out of the dark", made to sell under the name of a company that doesn't make knives, it makes me a bit leery.

Who makes it? What experience do they have? Why isn't it being made and sold under the maker's name?

In theory, the specs look decent. If the D2 steel has been made & tempered well, it theoretically ought to make for decent steel for the blade. (Edge geometry can make or break it, though)

I saw it at SHOT SHOW and really liked it. Their first knife got decent reviews. That said, at that price, I'd go Boker Epicenter.

I have a couple Chinese knives and I'm guessing it is either made there or the parts come from there. I'm ok with it but I'm just not gonna pay that much for that knife.
