At this price I think this is a good knife, for sure.
Yes, opening and especially closing the blade can and probably will be a bit hard/difficult at first. But when it's broken in, it should be fine. Handling this CS Pro Lite is easier and more ergonomic in comparison with my CS Code 4 IMHO.
The 4116 blade steel is relatively soft so it won't hold its edge as long as some high end steels but is very easy to sharpen.
