Amazing little knife.

Nice little knife that can easily be carried with no real questions from police or workplaces. I could easily have this tucked in my waistband or pocket anywhere and the blade is short enough no one should have any issues with it. It's also by far the most satisfying knife to open, coming out by flipping it out in a normal karambit spin, or just a little push on the back of the hinge.

The only issues I've had with it was the lock was really stiff at first to undo, that eventually wore off though and it became easy to close.
And the other issue was that it is really hard to sharpen with that inward curving blade, not impossible using a pull through sharpener or a triangular stone. but it's not doable with a normal sharpening stone.

Lastly, I wish it were made of slightly better steel. D2 is good and all but for how much of a pain it is to sharpen it would be nice if it were a little harder.
Don't let these issues detract you from the knife, it's one of my favorite so far!
