Got mine in today. I have to echo Jasril in saying the action is tight right out of the box. Requires far more of a wrist flick to open than knives I've spent half as much on. Not a fan of having to do the equivalent of a fluff and buff on a pocket knife but it is what it is.
The design is mostly nice except the rather abrupt slope of the fram right below the lock. This means that unless you press with the tip of your thumb you're going to jam part of your thumb against that. Mucho uncomfortable.
The overall fit and finish is ok but it shows that these were made to be cheaper for a better profit margin. The blue finish is uneven and slightly patchy. The action is gritty, tight, and inconsistent. The pocket clip is too stiff, I've already ripped the pocket on my jeans trying to put the knife in without lifting up on the clip with a finger.
The only thing I like right off the bat is that the edge is very keen and the bevel of the blade seems to be really well done.
Simply put, I'm disappointed. Out of the box this is a mediocre knife at best. Probably the first knife I've bought in the past 10 years that has made me feel buyer's remorse.
