Took the plunge and bought one...
A very stout folder, meant for heavy duty, too big for pocket carry. Thick blade, nicely shaped, satin finish. Thought it might be sharper coming from the factory. No chance of it slipping from your hands with the factory grips. Heavy duty sheath. Only mod I may make is removing the pocket clip-- no need for it as I will ride the knife in the sheath.
If you don't mind wearing a belt folder, I highly recommend it. If you do, go for a smaller knife. This will not be my EDC knife Monday thru Friday (got an Emerson mini-CQC-7B for that), but it might be my weekend EDC. Definitely will make hiking trips. No such thing as "too much knife" for me.
Shopped around the net, with shipping came to $103.
Own quite a few knives (Emerson, Benchmade, Kabar, Gerber, Buck, Victorinox) and multi-tools (Leatherman), and this compares very favorably with the best of them for fit and finish.
