This Chinese knife has both well-fit parts and quality materials.

The steel liners are actually sunk into the inner side of the fiberglass (G10) handle slabs, compared to the simple sandwiched construction of many similar knives which leaves the liner visible all around and tends to make the handle thicker than necessary.

The spacers between the handle halves and the blade+washers are both well-matched to each other's thickness. I occasionally see knives, sometimes even from expensive brands, with handles, washers, and spacers which just aren't the right thickness, causing the blade to wiggle or push off-center. This knife's blade is perfectly straight and solid in both the opened and closed positions.

The parts are all shaped with great accuracy. The internal cutouts inside the G10 handle slabs are perfectly ground for the thickness of the steel liners. The blade is beveled neatly on both sides, with a sharp edge right out of the box. No lop-sided grinds.

The steel is a newer Chinese "mystery steel" which is actually really good. The hardness rating (as per the manufacturer) is 58-59 HRC, which is the same as many higher-priced Japanese or US knives, and performance so far is backing that up.

The blade has an interesting gray Titanium Nitride finish. This is an actual coating of a durable substance, NOT just a sand-blasted texture used by many other knives. Sand-blasted (or "bead blasted") textures actually increase the possibility of rust, while a titanium nitride coating reduces it (though it probably isn't necessary).

The thumb stud works very well. It has layered concentric ridges, which results in both smoother rotation under your thumb and a good grip.

I would just like to start off by saying that this knife shipped and arrived very fast! I ordered it on Feb 4, 2014 and it arrived at the post office on Feb 6, 2014. WOW! Amazon prime's not kidding when they say two day shipping. Keep in mind that this package shipped all the way from Delaware to my home in Hawaii, that is completely across the country, in two days! Kudos to Amazon for the amazing shipping speed.

I bought this knife as an EDC. For a few years now, I've been carrying an Ontario RAT I. The RAT is literally the best 30 bucks i've ever spent in my life. If you want a larger utility knife of great quality I suggest checking out the RAT. It is an excellent blade for the price and one that has served me well (unfortunately, I can't find it). I figured the RAT may be a little too big for EDC and I ought to get something a little smaller. Chances are that if you are reading this review you are in the market for an affordable EDC and are considering other options. Some other products to consider that are about the same size and price are: Ontario RAT model II, Kershaw Skyline, and ESEE Zancudo. This range of knives tends to be tricky waters to navigate through. You have the possibility of receiving an excellent knife that is worth more than what you payed for or you could possibly receive absolute crap. This knife definitely falls into the former category!

Blade: the blade is very attractive. It is simple and elegant. As is evident in the pictures, you can see that the blade has a small recurve in it towards the rear. It is very slight and barely noticeable. It arrived paper-shredding sharp. Some of the other reviewers complained about theirs being dull. I think it is really a matter of luck. If you're lucky, you'll receive a sharp one.

As far as I am concerned, the best EDC knife you can get! It's simple, tough, the clip is awesome and tough, the knife easy to clean (sandblast it if I have to) and it is simple to adjust the pivot. Good balance of sharpening ease vs. edge retention vs. toughness. Fast one hand deployment and locks solid. As an artist and as a craftsman, I've put this knife through the worst for a few years and it works as good today as when I bought it. The smooth stainless sides can be a little slippery when wet, but I think it's well worth it for the clean-ability and toughness of the knife. [NOTE: this knife is very different from the plastic-sided model, in the way it locks and in the way the clip attaches.] Great knife!!!!

EDIT: I want to note that I have carried this knife and used it several times a day for about five years now. This is a thing close to my heart. I attribute most but not all of the beauty of this knife to it's designers. Every once in a while there is just a lucky coming together of design, materials, construction and user, and my relationship with this thing has been just that. This isn't a thing to wow you or instantly feel like the best thing on the planet, this is a tool to merge with and to beat on and then care for and then repeat for many years. Have you ever seen a tool from the stone age, that looks so beautiful and refined and delicate that it doesn't seem possible that anyone ever used it, but at the same time it shows the wear of a lifetime of use?
