I'm planning to EDC it, but first it needs to be sharpened, as the factory edge sadly wasn't apexed over about an inch, and the complete edge is about as sharp as a butterknife.
Luckily i have a Wicked Edge as well as a set of Paper Wheels to make it right.

The knife is put together very well, and the amount of hand finishing is noticeable.

Yesterday evening i sharpened the knife (with a standard Paper Wheel with 180 grit SiC grit plus another one with 15 micron diamond compound), and all worked out rather well, except for one ever so tiny microchip at the base which appeared after test cutting into the edge of hard desk top layer.
First i reprofiled the edge from +/- 30 degrees inclusive to 25 degrees inclusive, which seems to be too low for this steel (when leaned on during cutting into this hard & tough material)
I then enlarged the edge angle to +/- 26-27 degrees inclusive, and now the edge survives the same test without problems.
In contrast to what the last picture shows, in real life the edge looks a bit hazy, but it's quite sharp.
It can treetop the hair on the back of my hand, slice single layer toilet paper, and cut the skin of a tomato without slipping.

I'm thinking about carrying this knife for some time, as from what i've read on various forums S110V should be the most wear resistant stainless steel in the world currently used in production knives.

Wow, I missed this by almost a year. Need to pay better attention I guess.
