Welp, got mine today. In case anyone was wondering there are no sharp or hot-spot-inducing corners on the G-10 scales. Pictures are deceiving in that regard.
My example did come with the squared-off screws that hold the clip on. While the clip feels bulky in the hand, I couldn't grip it tight enough to feel like I was getting ready to cut my hand. Really, I don't feel any sharpness when I'm gripping it at all, just bulkiness. I will eventually replace the screws with rounded-off heads, probably shoot for Ti with blue anodizing, but I don't expect to feel a major difference in grip comfort from just doing that little mod. I may try to find a machinist who can replace the stand-off shanks with shorter ones, bringing the top of the clip down close to the scales to make it look more "normal," but as-is, the clip holds the knife in place in the pocket like a vice-grip. I wore it all day today while out and about and while riding my motorcycle. The knife didn't budge, and I would expect it to be held even tighter if the angle of the clip is cut down close to flat against the scale.
This is my first WE knife, my first ball bearing pivot knife, my first decent quality knife made in China, and my first non-auto-opening button-lock. The build seems very stout. Swing the blade open and it locks up with a solid "caarrack!" No play at all at the pivot (or anywhere else for that matter). The motions for opening and closing will take some getting used to before I can do it without thinking about it, but back in the day, both my first liner and frame locked knives required practice too.
I get the complaints that were predicted to manifest with this knife, but after spending a day with it, I really don't think they will. I'll keep folks posted if using the knife actually causes any of 'em to be felt, but if you don't hear back from me here, well, no news is good news. So far I'm stoked with this purchase. Also stoked I got it for the $40 bucks off Black Friday special price. That's all for now....
