first knife, not that bad
Knife opens smoothly, but is slightly annoying to close. The blade wasn't that sharp, attempted cutting a sheet of paper, but required effort to get it to start cutting. also couldn't cut the paper if i started slanted. (it more tore the sheet instead).
packing/initial state was pretty poor, when I first opened the box, the storage pouch was covered in residue, unsure what it was, and handling the knife covered my hand with black dust/paint. it was okay after rinsing and wiping down the knife.
