I would STRONGLY recommend that those who get this knife obtain some Sentry Solutions Tuf-Cloth and Tuf-Glide products to protect the edge after sharpening, even if you choose to live with the factory edge for awhile. Sentry Solutions products are most wonderful for protecting ferrous alloys from rust and corrosion, without leaving oily or greasy residue on the surface. If you've become spoiled by stainless alloys (as I was) you'll be surprised at how quickly 1095 steel goes black, and if you ignore it, how quickly it rusts. Doesn't mean it is bad, just means you need to pay attention and keep it properly lubed and protected. The Micarta scales that come with the Izula are "old-style" Micarta, which means that they are very grippy, almost like bare cloth on the surface, and look great, but that they are very absorbent of water, blood, sweat, tears, etc. ALL Micarta is absorbent of schmutz of various kinds, which is why I mostly prefer G-10, but compensation can be made. I am in the process of treating mine with sequential applications of rust-resistant lubes, but I'd still recommend occasional removal of the scales to check for and treat against rust-inducing goop between the scales and the blank, even though the powder-coat on the steel seems pretty thick.
Bottom line: I LOVE a sharp blade, this little knife comes with one, and can be made to have even a much sharper one. Therefore, I recommend it heartily. However, if you are too lazy to take the time to care for a non-rust-resistant blade, I suggest that you pass this one up and go for something else. Despite my laziness, I'm glad I did not take that route, but I'd understand those who did.
If you're looking for one tough SOB of a pocket knife, then get this gem. Esee guarantees their knives no matter what: "If you break it, we will replace it. Warranty is lifetime and transferable. In other words, we warranty the knife no matter how many times it's been traded, sold or given away - no sales receipt or proof of purchase required." Check out Esee's warranty page and look at the knife that withstood various rifle and pistol rounds before it broke. Yes, they did replace the knife, probably out of sheer stupefaction. I'm not one to drop of a lot of money on a small knife, but I'm glad I did.
If you want something that you will actually end up carrying around your neck, I would recommend the skeletonized handle version. Otherwise this knife is very small on your belt or pack, and has the most of the benefits of a fixed blade like strength and ergonomics in your hand, while at the same time you can do the kind of precise tasks you might normally use a folder for.
