I just got mine yesterday. Here is my brief Amazon review:
Fit and finish is what you'd expect from Spyderco (great), but there are two issues:
1) The blade is not very sharp from the factory. For a $100+ knife, it should be nearly razor sharp.
2) The opening action of the knife is very stiff. This is due to the back lock applying a lot of pressure on the blade and possibly the interfering surfaces being a little rough. I tested this by holding the lock open while manipulating the blade, and it moved very freely, which means the pivot is not too tight. I hope that repeated opening and closing will break this in, but I think the lock might have too much tension. It may need some lubrication as well.
Other than that, I really like the size and form of this knife. It is a little smaller than I anticipated, but that's a good thing. I expect this to be my new EDC for quite some time.
