This thing was horribly dull out of the box. The spring clip is short and tight, that’s great for keeping it from accidentally coming out of your pocket, it’s not so great for when you want to take it out of your pocket. The action is okay and will free up a bit with use I suspect. The finger flip lever is a bit short so it takes some intention to line up your finger grip to get the assist action started. Overall, it’s a $25 knife so I guess it’s fine but I’m disappointed that it’s not any better, and in most measures, worse than my $15 Guidesman from Menards. I guess I expected more from it.
