The reason I purchased this knife is the visual appeal of the angular symmetry. Previous comments are correct about the 90 degree handle does not fair well holding the piece. The price was low enough for me to purchase this knife for the men in my wedding party. I do not use this as an EDC but it takes a spot on my work desk as an opener. Previous comments state that this is an ugly knife but to each their own, I do not disparage ones opinion. I put much suspect to a knife that opens perfectly out of the box, this one works itself in after some usage. BTW all the guy's in my wedding party loved their gift as a knife.
