The Rubicon is very cool looking, much smaller in real life than you'd expect from photos. Similar in size to a Sage, smaller than the Manix 2 and PM2.
However once you get it in hand, the blade shape and the knife in general is not something you'd want to use for everyday cutting tasks.
For that reason, I decided to go with the Spyderco Domino instead. Which is also beautifully made in the same factory, more unique steel choice (notice I didn't say better), and in my opinion superior blade geometry for actual use. (I also got it for $151)
It also has the best/smoothest flipper I've used (as compared to various ZT models, the benchmade axis flipper,various Kershaws and even the Rubicon)
However, if you want to have the Rubicon to show it to your friends, all good. It's a good deal for a "factory custom." Wish they made it bigger if it was meant to be a safe queen so that it'd be more impressive looking when you show it off.
TL:DR - I like the Domino better than Rubicon
domino rocks. I don't like this knife enough for 250. I'd like to see a s90v pm2 or something here
