I have been buying knives from the Knife Guy for a long time now and if I could give 10 stars for his service, I would.
On the knife itself - it is good for what you pay. The only reason for the purchase is for a inexpensive EDC with Magnacut. My expectations on the steel have probably been too high as it does not compare to S90vn or 110 in terms of edge retention as everyone was going on about. It is about in the S45vn range. Perhaps the heat treatment was not done correctly. The scales on the knife feels a bit cheap but then again, you get what you pay for but the action on the knife is stunning - might I even say better than the original butterfly company..? All in all a good buy for what it is and would recommend.
It's super light. The blade is thin and slicey with one of the coolest blade shapes. The locking mech is great and fun to play with. The weight may put some off and the handle scales do come across a bit cheap.The handle does flex very slightly under pressure.
