Excellent value and quality
For the price paid, I feel like you are getting more knife than you'd get from some similarly priced knives from some of the more household names. It has a great, solid feel to it, the scales provide good grip without being like sandpaper or causing hot spots, it opens smoothly and cleanly every time, arrived very sharp and has stayed that way for a long time through daily carrying and normal everyday uses. The belt clip is very solid and strong, so if you do decide to carry it on a belt instead of a pocket (pocket for me) I would trust it to hold on well. The open center section of the handle lets you easily clean out any lint or debris that can build up in the handle. It's a very well designed knife from Dylan Mallery and works great on top of looking great. It may be considered a bit too heavy and long for an everyday carry, but other than any length restrictions required by law where someone lives, I think it's just fine to carry daily.
If I had some things to criticize, they're very minor to me. The lanyard hole being inside the handle is a unique design, but it sits so close to the blade edge when closed that anything thicker than some micro cord going through it will likely get frayed and cut over time. It's not something I use, but that may matter to someone. It also moves pretty freely by design, so if you ever heard your knife giving you a little rattle, it's most likely that piece and not an internal problem. One other minor issue is that the detent to hold the knife closed is almost too good at times, so you have to put more pressure than you would expect onto the thumb stud to get it to open. Once you break from that detent, though, the knife opens right up as fast as any automatic opener could hope to be. I figured it was due to a new knife breaking in, and while it has improved, it's still higher effort than I expected. I've just gotten used to it. Finally, after some time owning it there was the slightest bit of side-to-side play in the blade when locked open, but I honestly would pin that on normal wear and tear from everyday carry and use because I don't remember it being there at all when the knife came out of the box. As with any decent knife, this can be adjusted away with the adjustment screw(s).
Overall I'm very pleased with it, and it's now my go-to knife to carry daily. As much as I like it, and would hate to have anything happen to it, it's not a $300 knife where I'd feel a financial loss along with it being damaged or lost. At under $40 it's easily replaceable and is still well worth what you pay for it.
Would recommend to a friend.
